The BSD sockets API provides abstractions and other features that help applications be protocol-independent. Unfortunately, not all of the API is abstract and generic, and many programs do not use the APIs in a protocol-independent way. This means that most network programs, in practice, only work with one layered set of communications protocols { usually(More)
The U. S. Naval Research Laboratory's OPIE One-time Passwords In Everything Software Distribution is an enhancement of Bellcore's SSKey TM 1.0 package. OPIE improves on SSKey in several areas, including FTP service with one-time passwords, and a stronger algorithm for generating one-time passwords. OPIE diverges from SSKey in select design decisions and in(More)
The widespread availability of the TCPPIP protocols in early versions of BSD UNIX fostered the currently widespread use of those protocols in commercial products. Rapid depletion of the IPv4 address space has caused the Internet Engineering Task Force to design version 6 of the Internet Protocol IPv6. IPv6 has some similiarities with IPv4, but it also has(More)

The U.S. Naval Research Laboratory develops and maintains a freely available IPv6 and IP Security distribution. All of the software builds and runs on BSD/OS, FreeBSD, NetBSD, and OpenBSD, and a growing portion of the software builds and runs on Linux. Each of the four BSDs has evolved signiicantly from their original 4.4BSD-Lite ancestor, and increasingly(More)
