Message-Id: <200007132348.TAA23241@ietf.org> To: IETF-Announce: ; Cc: RFC Editor <rfc-editor@ISI.EDU>, IANA <firstname.lastname@example.org> Cc: Internet Architecture Board <iab@ISI.EDU> From: The IESG <email@example.com> Subject: Protocol Action: Telnet Authentication Options to Proposed Standard Date: Thu, 13 Jul 2000 19:48:44 -0400 Sender: firstname.lastname@example.org The IESG has approved the Internet-Draft 'Telnet Authentication Option' <draft-tso-telnet-auth-enc-05.txt> as a Proposed Standard. This document replaces RFC1416, currently an Experimental Protocol. In the same action, the IESG approved publication of the following Internet-Drafts as Proposed Standards: o Telnet Authentication: Kerberos Version 5 <draft-tso-telnet-krb5-04.txt> o Telnet Authentication Using DSA <draft-housley-telnet-auth-dsa-05.txt> o Telnet Authentication: SRP <draft-wu-telnet-auth-srp-05.txt> o The SRP Authentication and Key Exchange System <draft-wu-srp-auth-03.txt> o Telnet Data Encryption Option <draft-tso-telnet-encryption-04.txt> o Telnet Encryption: DES3 64 bit Cipher Feedback <draft-altman-telnet-enc-des3-cfb-01.txt> o Telnet Encryption: DES3 64 bit Output Feedback <draft-altman-telnet-enc-des3-ofb-01.txt> o Telnet Encryption: CAST-128 64 bit Cipher Feedback <draft-altman-telnet-enc-cast128-ofb-00.txt> o Telnet Encryption: CAST-128 64 bit Cipher Feedback <draft-altman-telnet-enc-cast128-cfb-00.txt> The IESG approved publication of the following documents as Informational RFCs: o Telnet Authentication Using KEA and SKIPJACK <draft-housley-telnet-auth-keasj-05.txt> o Telnet Encryption: DES 64 bit Cipher Feedback <draft-tso-telnet-enc-des-cfb-04.txt> o Telnet Encryption: DES 64 bit Output Feedback <draft-tso-telnet-enc-des-ofb-04.txt> These documents have been reviewed in the IETF but are not the product of an IETF Working Group. The IESG contact persons Jeff Schiller and Marcus Leech. Technical Summary These documents are the result of implementation experience in the deployment of a more secure TELNET implementation. In particular draft-tso-telnet-auth-enc-05.txt is a significant security improvement over RFC1416 which it obsoletes. Fundamentally these documents define a way of adding encryption and authentication support to TELNET using two different key management schemes (Kerberos and SRP) and several ciphers. Working Group Summary N/A Protocol Quality These documents were reviewed by Jeffrey I. Schiller for the IESG. Note to RFC Editor: In draft-tso-telnet-auth-enc-05.txt Please replace the reference:  D. Borman, "Telnet Authentication Option", RFC 1409, January 1993. With the reference:  D. Borman, "Telnet Authentication Option", RFC 1416, February 1993. In draft-housley-telnet-auth-dsa-05.txt please replace the reference to RFC1416 to instead reference the new RFC number associated with draft-tso-telnet-auth-enc-05.txt. Note: The other documents in the set of telnet authentication encryption documents that reference RFC1416 should also reference the new RFC number.
