The IETF Independent Submissions Editor (ISE) has asked for more detail on the
command STARTTLS, in particular the use of certificates.
I propose saying that NUT 2.8.0 supports the encryption of communications
between Attachment Daemon upsd and Management Daemon upsmon using TLS 1.3
[RFC8446] with X.509 v3 certificates as defined by RFC5280 + updates.
I also propose adding a note that in the closely restrained world of UPS
management, it may be possible to obtain better security using self-signed
Aa always with RFC work, comments are welcome. Roger
