Multiprotocol systems can be an important tool for achieving interoperability. As the number of protocols available on such systems grows, there is an increasing need for support mechanisms that enable users to effectively access these protocols. Of particular importance is the need to determine which of several protocols to use for a given communication task. In this work, we propose architectures for a protocol discovery system that uses protocol feedback mechanisms to determine which protocols are supported. We describe the issues related to protocol discovery and present feedback mechanisms necessary to support discovery. We present a prototype implementation of a discovery system that supports next generation IP protocols.

Krupczak, Bobby; Ammar, Mostafa H. (Mostafa Hamed); Calvert, Kenneth L. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1995)Protocol software is often difficult, cumbersome, and expensive to implement and test in today's computing environments. To reduce this difficulty, several things are done: communications software is commonly subdivided ...
Lindgren, Bert; Krupczak, Bobby; Ammar, Mostafa H. (Mostafa Hamed); Schwan, Karsten (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1993)As network speeds increase, a major concern regarding communication protocols is their limited throughput and latency due to processing overheads at network nodes. Furthermore, novel network applications and expanded ...
Single Connection Emulation (SCE): An Architecture for Providing a Reliable Multicast Transport Service Talpade, Rajesh R.; Ammar, Mostafa H. (Mostafa Hamed) (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1994)We present a novel architecture for providing a reliable multicast transport service over existing protocol stacks. These protocol stacks ordinarily support reliable unicast transport layer connections over a network ...
