MILITARY SUPPLEMENT

TO THE

ISO TRANSPORT PROTOCOL

Status of this Memo

This RFC is being distributed to members of the Internet community in order to solicit comments on the Draft Military Supplement. While this document may not be directly relevant to the research problems of the Internet, it may be of some interest to a number of researchers and implementors. Distribution of this memor is unlimited.

1. SCOPE

1.1 Purpose.

This document supplements the Transport Service and Protocol of the International Standards Organization (ISO), IS 8072 and IS 8073, respectively, and their formal descriptions by providing conventions, option selections and parameter values to be used when the protocol is operated within the scope of the applicability statement in Paragraph 1.3 below. Paragraph 1.4, below, describes the ISO standards. Full implementation detail is not provided in this document, but reference is made to a separate document, entitled "Implementation Guide for the ISO Transport Protocol", in which guidance for implementation is given.

1.2 Organization.

Five sections comprise this supplement. In Section 1, the role and purpose of the Transport Protocol are stated and the international standards upon which the protocol is based are described. These documents, as well as others supporting the international standards and this supplement are listed in Section 2. Other definitions not already included in the international standards and supporting documents are given in Section 3. The international standards cover a very wide variety of network environments and situations. There is, thus, a collection of options and parameters provided by the standards which must be determined for specific uses. Section 4 states the options and parameters relevant to those implementations to which this supplement applies, and defines usage conventions.

Conventions for addressing and Transport connection reference number usage and recovery of the Transport connection from peer deactivation are covered in Section 5.

1.3 Application.

The use of the Transport Protocol Class 4 and the Protocol for Providing the Connectionless-Mode Network Service (IS 8473) is mandatory foruse in all DOD packet-switched data networks where there is a potential for host-to-host connectivity across network or subnetwork boundaries. The term "network" as used here shall include Local Area Networks but not integrated weapons systems. The use of the Transport Protocol Class 4 and IS 8473 is strongly encouraged, particularly where a need for equipment interchangeability or survivability is perceived. Use of the Transport Protocol Class 4 and IS 8473 in weapons systems, where such usage does not diminish required performance, is also encouraged.

1.4 International Standards Organization Transport Protocol.

The international standard upon which this supplement is based is described in four docum...
