    Hi All,

    @Paul Rich

    ETSI just published State management for stateful authentication mechanisms

    ​The present document is limited to discussion of the characteristics of the state object, the reuse of the state index, and
    of architectural and operational considerations for deploying stateful hash-based signatures. First, it discusses
    the characteristics of the state object for S-HBS schemes and identifies potential security vulnerabilities and operational
    problems associated with its management. Second, it gives guidance on mitigating the issues identified. And third, it
    helps a prospective implementor determine if an S-HBS solution is suitable for their given application; examples of
    suitable and non-suitable applications are given.
