Abstract:

The primary purpose of the DDN Protocol Handbook in three volumes is to serve as a guide for those planning to implement the DoD suite of protocols on various computers to be attached to the DDN, including the ARPANET. For this reason tutorial information and auxiliary documents are included in addition to the protocol specifications themselves. All of this information has been collected into one set of documents that can be used as a source book for implementation purposes. This first volume contains an overview of the protocol standardization process and policies within the U.S. Department of Defense. It discusses the roles of the Defense Communications Agency DCA and the DDN program Management Office DDN PMO with respect to this process. Detailed specifications for DoD military standard MIL STD computer communication protocols, which are required as part of the protocol suite in use on the Defense Data Network DDN, are included. The Handbook also outlines the role of the DDN PMO in DDN configuration management, and provides instructions for obtaining additional protocol information.
