The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and solicits final
comments on this action. Please send substantive comments to the [hidden email] mailing lists by 2017-12-04. Exceptionally, comments may be

Pervasive Monitoring (PM) attacks on the privacy of Internet users is
of serious concern to both the user and the operator communities.
RFC7258 discussed the critical need to protect users' privacy when
developing IETF specifications and also recognized making networks
unmanageable to mitigate PM is not an acceptable outcome, an
appropriate balance is needed. This document discusses current
security and network management practices that may be impacted by the
shift to increased use of encryption to help guide protocol
development in support of manageable, secure networks.
