Re: isn't "...isn't perfect, but it's something now"
Folks, >>There is a proposal that should interest you. It is called Bounce Tag >>Address Validation By Dave Crocker. >>http://www.brandenburg.com/specifications/draft-crocker-marid-batv-00-06dc.html >>This proposal is now in the IETF MASS WG. TH> There was a BoF called MASS held at the recent IETF meetings in San Diego; TH> it has not yet been approved as a working group and no charter has been TH> reviewed by the IESG. While I believe the work on BATV is interesting, TH> I am not sure gating it on the approval of MASS is a good idea. and boy oh boy do i agree with you! however, the description of BATV as a "proposal" is a non-trivial point. The document outlines ideas but there is not yet a serious, detailed specification. (it is almost complete, of course, but that never counts until it is released.) At any rate, it will be entirely possible to use the 'private' mode of BATV privately, without requiring or expecting broad implementation. d/ ps. my original posting was not an indirect attempt to promote any specification i am working on. it was merely a direct attempt to encourage folks to consider the strategic issues more. -- Dave Crocker <dcrocker-at-brandenburg-dot-com> Brandenburg InternetWorking <www.brandenburg.com> Sunnyvale, CA USA <tel:+1.408.246.8253>
