HTTP proxying features have long been part of the core HTTP specification. However, the core proxying functionality has several important deficiencies in modern HTTP environments. This specification defines alternative proxy service configurations for HTTP requests and TCP connections. These services are identified by URI Templates and designed for parallelism with DoH, MASQUE, and Oblivious HTTP.
