Dear all,

I created Wiki pages for my proposals:

http://trac.tools.ietf.org/wg/httpbis/trac/wiki/HttpAuthProposals/MutualAuth
http://trac.tools.ietf.org/wg/httpbis/trac/wiki/HttpAuthProposals/AuthExtension

I hope you will feel the information helpful.

Cheers,

Yutaka

> The proposal is (both documents are) HTTP/1.1 compatible, and
> as far as core HTTP request/response semantics are kept,
> it should work with future HTTP/2.0, too.
>
> I will set up wiki pages for these around tomorrow or so.
> It will include information on available reference implementations,
> some more introductions and so on.
> I hope you will enjoy the proposed solution.

> To implement the core proposal now, please refer this, too.

> P. S.
> I also incremented the individual draft revisions for book-keeping purpose.
