TLSP (Transport Layer Security Protocol) is the linear descendant of SP4 of the SDNS series. It is assumed to run at the bottom of the transport layer and to provide security services, whenever such services are needed, on a per-connection basis.

In essence, TLSP provides cryptographic transformations which are end-to-end and provided directly above the network layer.

TLSP is an IS as of July 1992.
