Licklider Transmission Protocol - Security Extensions

This RFC 5327 was published in 2008.


The Licklider Transmission Protocol (LTP) is intended to serve as a reliable convergence layer over single-hop deep-space radio frequency (RF) links.
LTP does Automatic Repeat reQuest (ARQ) of data transmissions by soliciting selective-acknowledgment reception reports.
It is stateful and has no negotiation or handshakes.
This document describes security extensions to LTP, and is part of a series of related documents describing LTP.

RFC 5327 introduction
