                        draft-schinazi-masque-02

Abstract

   This document describes MASQUE (Multiplexed Application Substrate
   over QUIC Encryption).  MASQUE is a framework that allows
   concurrently running multiple networking applications inside an
   HTTP/3 connection.  For example, MASQUE can allow a QUIC client to
   negotiate proxying capability with an HTTP/3 server, and subsequently
   make use of this functionality while concurrently processing HTTP/3
   requests and responses.

   This document is a straw-man proposal.  It does not contain enough
   details to implement the protocol, and is currently intended to spark
   discussions on the approach it is taking.  Discussion of this work is
   encouraged to happen on the MASQUE IETF mailing list masque@ietf.org
   (mailto:masque@ietf.org) or on the GitHub repository which contains
   the draft: https://github.com/DavidSchinazi/masque-drafts
   (https://github.com/DavidSchinazi/masque-drafts).

1.  Introduction

   This document describes MASQUE (Multiplexed Application Substrate
   over QUIC Encryption).  MASQUE is a framework that allows
   concurrently running multiple networking applications inside an
   HTTP/3 connection (see [HTTP3]).  For example, MASQUE can allow a
   QUIC client to negotiate proxying capability with an HTTP/3 server,
   and subsequently make use of this functionality while concurrently
   processing HTTP/3 requests and responses.

   MASQUE Negotiation is performed using HTTP mechanisms, but MASQUE
   applications can subsequently leverage QUIC [QUIC] features without
   using HTTP.

   This document is a straw-man proposal.  It does not contain enough
   details to implement the protocol, and is currently intended to spark
   discussions on the approach it is taking.  Discussion of this work is
   encouraged to happen on the MASQUE IETF mailing list masque@ietf.org
