This document describes a specific EID scheme namely "cla" that meets the requirement for endpoint identification as defined in the Bundle Protocol and that also uniquely identifies a Convergence Layer Adapter "channel" and is, in essence, an interface identifier (IID). Such IID is comprised of two parts: a "cla-identifier" part that identifies a specific convergence layer adapter, and a "cla- parameters" part that is a cla-specific list of parameter describing a single channel managed by this convergence layer adapter.
