Technical Summary This document provides a survey of commonly used or notable network security protocols, with a focus on how they interact and integrate with applications and transport protocols. Its goal is to supplement efforts to define and catalog transport services by describing the interfaces required to add security protocols. This survey is not limited to protocols developed within the scope or context of the IETF, and those included represent a superset of features a Transport Services system may need to support. Moreover, this document defines a minimal set of security features that a secure transport system should provide. Working Group Summary The work has strong consensus in the WG. An early Secdir review raised concerns against including non-IETF protocols without stable specification, e.g., Wiregugrd, CurveCP, and MinimalT, while not describing other popular IETF protocols. The authors decided to keep these protocols in the document as there have unique features they wanted to include, and to add the protocols requested by the Secdir review. Document Quality There was good amounts of review in the WG last call. Further focusing of the document was done as result of the IETF last call. Personnel The document shepherd is Philipp S. Tiesel. The responsible Area Director is Magnus Westerlund.
