                A Survey of Transport Security Protocols
                 draft-pauly-taps-transport-security-00

Abstract

   This document provides a survey of commonly used or notable network
   security protocols, with a focus on how they interact and integrate
   with applications and transport protocols.  Its goal is to supplement
   efforts to define and catalog transport services [RFC8095] by
   describing the interfaces required to add security protocols.  It
   examines Transport Layer Security (TLS), Datagram Transport Layer
   Security (DTLS), Quick UDP Internet Connections with TLS (QUIC +
   TLS), MinimalT, CurveCP, tcpcrypt, and Internet Key Exchange with
   Encapsulating Security Protocol (IKEv2 + ESP).  This survey is not
   limited to protocols developed within the scope or context of the
   IETF.
