FAA - HDBK-004
NATIONAL AIRSPACE SYSTEM - INTERNET PROTOCOL SUITE
|Publication Date:||4 September 1997|
This handbook recommends the protocols, features, and services that should be supported in a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) IPS environment within the National Airspace System (NAS). This handbook will focus on documenting the required TCP/IP standards for connection oriented service and User Datagram Protocol (UDP) standards for connectionless service, see Figure 1.
Specified in this handbook are the minimum recommendations, additional protocols and services that may be implemented by mutual agreement. The minimum set defined herein may exceed the minimum requirements for a particular subnetwork.
This document was prepared in accordance with FAA-STD-005e.
The purpose of this document is to recommend standardized IPS protocols, options, and service elements that are available for implementation within FAA subnetworks. It will also assist FAA project personnel in determining the minimum features and options that must be supported in order to ensure uniform IPS implementation throughout the FAA. Finally, the implementation of the material presented in this handbook will allow FAA systems to be compatible with the global internet and enable transparent interface with the existing network infrastructure to support current and future FAA programs.
