                       Flexible Session Protocol
                 draft-gao-flexible-session-protocol-04

Abstract

   FSP is a connection-oriented transport layer protocol that provides
   mobility and multihoming support by introducing the concept of 'upper
   layer thread ID', which is associated with some shared secret that is
   applied with some secure hash or authenticated encryption algorithm
   to protect authenticity of the origin of the FSP packets.  It is able
   to provide following services to the upper layer application:

   o  Stream-oriented send-receive with native message boundary

      support

        o  Ubiquitous authenticated encryption
   o  0-RTT multiplication of connections
   o  On-the-wire compression
