What is the Impact of Encrypting Transport-layer Protocol Headers? (update)

I gave a brief update on our work on the impact of encrypting transport-layer protocol headers during the IETF 103 meeting in Bangkok.

This work has been significantly revised during the last year, based on feedback from Al Morton, Chris Seal, Kathleen Moriarty, Spencer Dawkins, Joe Touch, and Brian Trammell, and has now been adopted as a work item of the IETF Transport Area Working Group. We continue to revise the draft, but believe it is getting near completion. We hope to move the work to IETF last call for publication as an RFC in the next few months, and will thereafter submit an updated version for publication in an academic journal to try to reach a broad audience. Any additional comments and feedback are appreciated.
