The goals of the Secure TCP are shown as follows.
Provide data integrity for the TCP segment.
The data integrity is a security service where right entities
can identify data modified by unauthorized entities.
Provide data confidentiality for TCP segment data.
The data confidentiality is a security service where data
should be unreadable by unauthorized entities.
Provide a negotiation service for using various security
functions in process/process communication.
Keep connectivity(interoperability) with a current version
Secure TCP does not provide any authentication services
by itself. Because several third-party authentication services such as
Kerberos are now available, the Secure TCP relies on the authentication
services. In this sense, each peer entities in TCP layer has its
certificates and the Secure TCP uses it for authentication.
