Choose one protocol to share with the class. You should choose a different protocol than your classmates. Please check the discussion board before posting to ensure you select a unique protocol. Please utilize your post title to identify your chosen protocol so that it is easy for others both to know what your post regards and to quickly scan to identify what protocols have already been explained in the discussion.
In your post, you should identify both the acronym and full name for the protocol and should describe how the protocol is utilized and what information is transferred. Be sure to include the layer at which the protocol operates and describe what happens at that layer.
