Abstract:

This document presents a set of guidelines for precise specification of communication protocol services and mechanisms. First, the requirements for a complete protocol specification are outlined. Based on these requirements a conceptual framework for a protocol specification is discussed. A description of each of the components of a protocol specification is then presented along with a description of the protocol specification format and syntax requirements. The specification approach incorporates an extended finite state machine technique for formal definition of protocol services and mechanisms. Author
