Abstract

The Internet Open Trading Protocol (IOTP) provides a data exchange format for trading purposes while integrating existing pure payment protocols seamlessly. This motivates the multiple layered system architecture which consists of at least some generic IOTP application core and multiple specific payment modules.

Abstract

   The Internet Open Trading Protocol (IOTP) provides a data exchange

   format for trading purposes while integrating existing pure payment

   protocols seamlessly.  This motivates the multiple layered system

   architecture which consists of at least some generic IOTP application

   core and multiple specific payment modules.

   This document addresses a common interface between the IOTP

   application core and the payment modules, enabling the

   interoperability between these kinds of modules.  Furthermore, such

   an interface provides the foundations for a plug-in-mechanism in

   actual implementations of IOTP application cores.

   Such interfaces exist at the Consumers', the Merchants' and the

   Payment Handlers' installations connecting the IOTP application core

   and the payment software components/legacy systems.
