> Title : Tunneling TCP based protocols through Web proxy servers

> Pages : 9
> Date : 25-Feb-98
> This document specifies a generic tunneling mechanism for TCP based
> protocols through Web proxy servers. This tunneling mechanism was
> initially introduced for the SSL protocol [SSL] to allow secure Web
> traffic to pass through firewalls, but its utility is not limited to
> SSL. Earlier drafts of this specification were titled ''Tunneling SSL
> through Web Proxy Servers'' <draft-luotonen-ssl-tunneling-XX.txt>.
> Implementations of this tunneling feature are commonly referred to as
> ''SSL tunneling'', although, again, it can be used for tunneling any
> TCP based protocol.
> A wide variety of existing client and proxy server implementations
> conform to this specification. The purpose of this specification is
> to describe the current practice, to propose some good practices for
> implementing this specification, and to document the security
> considerations that are involved with this protocol.
