The WebSocket [RFC6455] protocol enables message exchange between clients and servers on top of a persistent TCP connection (optionally secured with Transport Layer Security (TLS) [RFC5246]). The initial protocol handshake makes use of HTTP [RFC7230] semantics, allowing the WebSocket protocol to reuse existing HTTP infrastructure.

                  The WebSocket Protocol as a Transport              for the Message Session Relay Protocol (MSRP)


   The WebSocket protocol enables two-way real-time communication    between clients and servers in situations where direct access to TCP    and UDP is not available (for example, from within JavaScript in a    web browser).  This document specifies a new WebSocket subprotocol as    a reliable transport mechanism between Message Session Relay Protocol    (MSRP) clients and relays to enable usage of MSRP in new scenarios.    This document normatively updates RFCs 4975 and 4976.
