==Backgound==
I've been developing Internet software for a couple of decades now. In 1998, I founded the [http://www.openldap.org OpenLDAP Project] and served as its Chief Architect until 2007 when I decided it was time to do something new (to me). I continue to advise the project.

I've been active in the [http://www.ietf.org Internet Engineering Task Force] since 1998, mostly in areas of Directory Services and Internet Security. I've authored/edited [http://www.openldap.org/project/kurt/publications.html numerous RFCs] and co-chaired the [http://www.ietf.org/html.charters/OLD/ldapbis-charter.html LDAP Revision (LDAPbis) WG] (now concluded). I currently co-chairing the [http://www.ietf.org/html.charters/sasl-charter.html Simple Authentication and Security Layer (SASL)] and [http://www.ietf.org/html.charters/vcarddav-charter.html vCard and CardDAV] working groups.

I work full time for [http://www.isode.com Isode Limited] as Internet standards and technology engineer.

==XMPP Projects==
===Code===
I am currently implementing XMPP Security Label/Clearance based authorization in [http://www.isode.com/ Isode]'s [http://www.isode.com/products/m-link.html M-Link] product.

===Standards===
I hope to draft a new XEP on the subject of XMPP Security Label/Clearance based Authorization.

===Plans for the future===
I hope to develop/standardize more general-use XMPP authorization capabilities.

==XMPP - Why I like it==
I came to XMPP because I was interested in doing something new (to me). Since coming to XMPP, I've become interested in providing sophisticated authorization controls to XMPP.

==Why I'm applying==
I am applying for XSF membership as I think I can help develop better XMPP standards.
