My name is [ Kurt Zeilenga] and I'm re-applying for XSF membership.

Contact Information:

I've been developing Internet software for a couple of decades now. In 1998, I founded the [ 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 [ Internet Engineering Task Force] since 1998, mostly in areas of Directory Services and Internet Security. I've authored/edited [ numerous RFCs] and co-chaired the [ LDAP Revision (LDAPbis) WG] (now concluded). I currently co-chairing the [ Simple Authentication and Security Layer (SASL)] and [ vCard and CardDAV] working groups.

I work full time for [ Isode Limited] as Internet standards and technology engineer.

==XMPP Projects==
I am currently implementing edge processing capabilities (presence folding, malware scanning, etc.) in [ Isode]'s [ M-Link] product.

I am the author of "Security Labels in XMPP" ([ XEP258]) and
"Design Considerations for Digital Signatures in XMPP" ([ XEP274]).

===Plans for the future===
I hope to develop/standardize more general-use XMPP security capabilities, such as Digital SIgnatures in XMPP.

==XMPP - Why I like it==
I came to XMPP because I was interested in doing something new (to me) and I like it because I've found lots of interesting things to do.

==Why I'm re-applying==
I am re-applying for XSF membership as I'd like to continue to help guide the organization behind XMPP standardization. I very much like the open community approach to XMPP standardization.
