#74 closed defect (wontfix)

normative statement of TLS client behavior in Section 3

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


Section 3 states:
A certificate not accompanied by an SCT (either for the end-entity certificate or for a name-constrained intermediate the end-entity certificate chains to) MUST NOT be considered compliant by TLS clients.

This is a normative statement about client behavior. Which is out of scope.

  • Component changed from client-behavior to rfc6962-bis

Changing component to rfc6962-bis, since this ticket requests text to be removed from that document.

Clearly the client-behavior document should make this normative statement about client behavior, but presumably there should be another ticket to track that.

Describing how the protocol works from the client's POV is _not_ about client behaviour, it is about the client's understanding of the situation. How it behaves as a result of that understanding is behaviour.

I propose this should be closed "wontfix".
