Abstract:

The Message Protocol allows the transfer of messages over communications networks. The protocol is divided into the Message Presentation ProtocolMPP, situated at the presentation layer, and the Message Transport Protocol MTP, situated at the session layer. The MPP supports formal DoD policy concerning the authorization, storage, and release of messages. The MTP supports the transfer of messages between different MPP sites. This document gives for each of these protocols an overview of the protocol, a description of the services offered to the upper layer, and a description of the services required from the lower layer.
