#173 closed defect (fixed)

De-duplicate Extension types

Reported by: rlb@… Owned by: draft-ietf-trans-rfc6962-bis@…
Priority: major Milestone: review
Component: rfc6962-bis Version:
Severity: - Keywords:


There is no need for separate extension data types for SCTs and STHs. Since
type values aren't signaled, you don't get any type safety benefits, so it's
just needless duplication. Just define one (or re-use the one from TLS), and
separate them by type values if necessary.

I support this - from deploying 6962, the realization we've gained is that we need extensibility for SCTs and STHs, not that these extensions need to be different.
