The XMPP Extensions Editor has received a proposal for a new XEP.

Title: XMPP Transport Layer Security

Abstract: This document specifies the XMPP Transport Layer Security
(XTLS) protocol. XTLS, which provides communications privacy for the
Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP), enables XMPP
applications to communicate in a way that is designed to prevent
eavesdropping, tampering, and forgery of XML stanzas. XTLS is based on
Transport Layer Security (TLS) and integrated as security layer into
Jingle. The protocol can be used for secure end-to-end messages as well
as any other Jingle application like file file transfer.

The XMPP Council will decide at its next meeting whether to accept this
proposal as an official XEP.
