Technical Summary This document describes the state machines for the General Internet Signaling Transport (GIST). The states of GIST nodes for a given flow and their transitions are presented in order to illustrate how GIST may be implemented. Working Group Summary The document is a product of the NSIS working group. The WG has reviewed the document thoroughly, and it has helped a number of implementations, and in general people to understand how GIST works. Document Quality There exists about half a dozen implementations of GIST, and many of them have benefited from the state machine specification. Personnel The document shepherd is Jukka Manner firstname.lastname@example.org). Lars Eggert (email@example.com) reviewed this document for the IESG. Jukka Manner.
