   This document defines a new HTTP header, named Expect-CT, that allows
   web host operators to instruct user agents to expect valid Signed
   Certificate Timestamps (SCTs) to be served on connections to these
   hosts.  When configured in enforcement mode, user agents (UAs) will
   remember that hosts expect SCTs and will refuse connections that do
   not conform to the UA's Certificate Transparency policy.  When
   configured in report-only mode, UAs will report the lack of valid
   SCTs to a URI configured by the host, but will allow the connection.
   By turning on Expect-CT, web host operators can discover
   misconfigurations in their Certificate Transparency deployments and
   ensure that misissued certificates accepted by UAs are discoverable
   in Certificate Transparency logs.
