Abstract

The Bundle Protocol (RFC 5050) requires the use of real time clocks to handle bundle expiry. This sometimes has some drawbacks; this specification explains some such situations, briefly considers generic ways to ameliorate those, and defines some alternative approaches for handling bundle expiry that do not require real time clocks. Status of this Memo This Internet-Draft is submitted to IETF in full conformance with the provisions of BCP 78 and BCP 79.
