This memo proposes extensions to the Transport Layer Security (TLS)
protocol to support the OpenPGP key format.  The extensions discussed
here include a certificate type negotiation mechanism, and the
required modifications to the TLS Handshake Protocol.  This memo defines
an Experimental Protocol for the Internet community.

This document is a product of the Transport Layer Security
Working Group of the IETF.
