BEEP == Blocks Extensible Exchange Protocol

Technical Summary

   BEEP provides a generic application protocol framework for
   connection-oriented, asynchronous interactions.

   At the core of the BEEP framework is a framing mechanism that
   permits simultaneous and independent exchanges of messages between
   peers. Messages are arbitrary MIME[1] content, but are usually
   textual (structured using XML[2]).

   All exchanges occur in the context of a channel -- a binding to a
   well-defined aspect of the application, such as transport security,
   user authentication, or data exchange.

   Each channel has an associated "profile" that defines the syntax and
   semantics of the messages exchanged. Implicit in the operation of
   BEEP is the notion of channel management. In addition to defining
   BEEP's channel management profile, this document defines:

   o  the TLS[3] transport security profile; and,

   o  the SASL[4] family of profiles.

   Other profiles, such as those used for data exchange, are defined by
   an application protocol designer.
