Abstract

   This document specifies a "compact" version of TLS 1.3.  It is
   isomorphic to TLS 1.3 but saves space by trimming obsolete material,
   tighter encoding, and a template-based specialization technique. cTLS
   is not directly interoperable with TLS 1.3, but it should eventually
   be possible for a cTLS/TLS 1.3 server to exist and successfully
   interoperate.
