SEC17 — Security: SSL reference no longer valid

  • Key: SEC17-1
  • Legacy Issue Number: 2789
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Summary: This is an issue vs the Security specification.

    The reference to SSL,

    is not valid even if you correct the domain from "ierf" to "ietf". In
    fact, the Internet Draft (which was only valid for six months) has been
    withdrawn and I was unable to find a copy anywhere on the web.

    Possible solutions:

    If someone has a copy, and copyright permissions allow, we can post it
    on the OMG server and reference it even though it"s not a valid IETF

    Otherwise, the spec should be updated to conform to TLS 1.0 and the
    reference updated to this spec instead of the SSL draft.

    In the future, IETF drafts (which have limited lifetime) should not be
    normative refereces in any OMG specifications.
