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:
