Dear Editors,

attached you find two ProtoXEPs submissions, OpenPGP for XMPP (OX) and
OpenPGP for XMPP Instant Messaging (OX-IM), to the XSF standards track
with the hope that they will be approved by the XSF Council as
experimental XEPs.

At some stage while developing a new OpenPGP specification for XMPP we
found that it was necessary to split the XEP into two: OX and OX-IM. OX
acts as basic building block for other XEPs, like OX-IM, which (will)
define a specific profile for OX. The OX-IM profile addresses the use
case of securing Instant Messaging communication via OpenPGP. Future
XEPs may define other profiles, thus re-using the components provided by
OX, to enable OpenPGP usage for the various scenarios (IoT, M2M
communication, ...) where XMPP is used.

The XEPs are developed in a git repository available at
