Title: Cisco's Statement about IPR Claimed in draft-ietf-tcpm-tcpsecure
Received: April 26, 2004
From: Robert Barr <rbarr@cisco.com>

Cisco is the owner of one or more pending patent applications relating to
the subject matter of "Transmission Control Protocol security
considerations" <draft-ietf-tcpm-tcpsecure-00.txt>. If technology in this
document is included in a standard adopted by IETF and any claims of any
Cisco patents are necessary for practicing the standard, any party will be
able to obtain a license from Cisco to use any such patent claims under
reasonable, non-discriminatory terms, with reciprocity, to implement and
fully comply with the standard.
