1.  Introduction

   The Aggregate Server Access Protocol (ASAP) [RFC5352], in conjunction
   with the Endpoint Handlespace Redundancy Protocol (ENRP) [RFC5353],
   provides a high-availability, data-transfer mechanism over IP
   networks.

   Both protocols work together and so share many common parameters used
   in message formats.  This document details the common message
   parameters shared between the two protocols.  This document provides
   parameter formats only; for procedures and message composition,
   please refer to the respective [RFC5352] and [RFC5353] documents.
