Abstract

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.

IESG Note

   This RFC is not a candidate for any level of Internet Standard.  It    represents the consensus of the Delay Tolerant Networking (DTN)    Research Group of the Internet Research Task Force (IRTF).  It may be    considered for standardization by the IETF in the future, but the    IETF disclaims any knowledge of the fitness of this RFC for any    purpose and in particular notes that the decision to publish is not    based on IETF review for such things as security, congestion control,    or inappropriate interaction with deployed protocols.  See RFC 3932    for more information.

Abstract

   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.

   This document is a product of the Delay Tolerant Networking Research    Group and has been reviewed by that group.  No objections to its    publication as an RFC were raised.
