Abstract

It is increasingly common for applications to want to influence the behavior of equipment in the network, in violation of various tenets underpinning the the design of IP. A number of different mechanisms and architectures have been proposed, and this very drafty draft is a hoped to be a start at discussing some of the issues related to protocols used for middlebox communication.
