The aim of this document is to describe a proof of concept system for NTS pools that are able to be used by clients without any knowledge beyond plain NTS. The work here focuses purely on creating an intermediate NTS Key Exchange server that can be configured with the addresses of multiple downstream servers and distribute load between them. The parts of pool operation dealing with managing the list of servers are left out of scope for this work.
