Transport Layer Security

The Transport Layer Security protocol is specified in RFC 3920 (a Proposed Standard of the Internet Engineering Task Force). This specification defines the core channel encryption method for XMPP: an application profile of Transport Layer Security (TLS) that enables a client to encrypt its XML streams with a server or for one server to encrypt its XML streams with a peer server. By its nature as a TLS profile, XMPP channel encryption also includes the ability to compress XML streams.

The following XML namespaces are used in the context of the Transport Layer Security protocol:

The following XML schemas are available for the Transport Layer Security protocol:
