FW: [802SEC] Link Security Monday morning session announcement and update

Title: Message
Dear SEC members,
The Link Security SG discussed the placement of the project in the first SG meeting on January in Vancouver. The decision was to place the project in P802.1. A brief summary of the meeting, including straw poll numbers, is included at the end of this message.
Based on this decision, we (802.1 and LinkSec) are already planning the March meeting together. We are scheduling a Link Security session on Monday morning (8:30-10:30am) to encourage participation from all WGs by avoiding overlaps with regular WG meetings.
Please forward the announcement and information below to your respective WG members.
Thank you,
IEEE802 March 2003 Plenary Meeting
