Security area director Stephen Farrell had asked us to make it as clear as possible to people who might be registering new “
amr” values that names can identify families of closely-related authentication methods. This is now said right in the IANA Registration Template, so that people who might not have read the spec can’t miss it.
FYI, all the previous IESG DISCUSSes have now been cleared, so hopefully that means this is the last version to be published before the Authentication Method Reference Values specification becomes an RFC.
Thanks again to Stephen for his always-thorough reviews of the specification.
The specification is available at:
