Transport Services: A Modern API for an Adaptive Internet Transport Layer

by   Michael Welzl, et al.

Transport services (TAPS) is a working group of the Internet's standardization body, the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). TAPS defines a new recommended API for the Internet's transport layer. This API gives access to a wide variety of services from various protocols, and it is protocol-independent: the transport layer becomes adaptive, and applications are no longer statically bound to a particular protocol and/or network interface. We give an overview of the TAPS API, and we demonstrate its flexibility and ease of use with an example using a Python-based open-source implementation.
