          A Minimal Set of Transport Services for End Systems
                       draft-ietf-taps-minset-11

Abstract

   This draft recommends a minimal set of Transport Services offered by
   end systems, and gives guidance on choosing among the available
   mechanisms and protocols.  It is based on the set of transport
   features in RFC 8303.
