3 Goals

The goals of the Secure TCP are shown as follows.

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.
