draft-trammell-plus-abstract-mech-00 Abstract This document describes the operation of three abstract mechanisms for supporting an explicitly cooperative path layer in the Internet architecture. Three mechanisms are described: sender to path signaling with receiver integrity verification; path to receiver signaling with confidential feedback to sender; and direct path to sender signaling.
