SPUD is a prototype for grouping UDP packets together. This grouping allows on-path network devices, especially middleboxes such as NATs or firewalls, to understand some basic semantics and potentially to offer salient information about their functions or the path to the endpoints. This document describes basic use cases for sharing that semantic and for using the information shared.
