> Status: https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-hallambaker-tlsfeature/

> Diff: http://www.ietf.org/rfcdiff?url2=draft-hallambaker-tlsfeature-08
> The purpose of the TLS feature extension is to prevent downgrade
> attacks that are not otherwise prevented by the TLS protocol. In
> particular, the TLS feature extension may be used to mandate support
> for revocation checking features in the TLS protocol such as OCSP
> stapling. Informing clients that an OCSP status response will always
> be stapled permits an immediate failure in the case that the response
> is not stapled. This in turn prevents a denial of service attack that
> might otherwise be possible.
> Please note that it may take a couple of minutes from the time of submission
> until the htmlized version and diff are available at tools.ietf.org.
