This specification defines how security event tokens (SETs) may be exchanged between a client and service provider using HTTP POST over TLS using a symmetric format. The specification supports three modes of operation: "push", "pull", and "push-pull" bi-directional SET exchange. The specification also defines a simple acknowledge mechanism allowing parties to confirm delivery.
