IETF RFC 3828
The Lightweight User Datagram Protocol (UDP-Lite)
|Publication Date:||1 July 2004|
This document describes the Lightweight User Datagram Protocol (UDPLite), which is similar to the User Datagram Protocol (UDP) (RFC 768), but can also serve applications in error-prone network environments that prefer to have partially damaged payloads delivered rather than discarded. If this feature is not used, UDP-Lite is semantically identical to UDP.
