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.
