   Distributed Denial-of-Service Open Threat Signaling (DOTS) Signal
                         Channel Specification
                   draft-ietf-dots-signal-channel-38

Abstract

   This document specifies the DOTS signal channel, a protocol for
   signaling the need for protection against Distributed Denial-of-
   Service (DDoS) attacks to a server capable of enabling network
   traffic mitigation on behalf of the requesting client.

   A companion document defines the DOTS data channel, a separate
   reliable communication layer for DOTS management and configuration
   purposes.
