Description of Working Group

The Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) was designed to encapsulate multiple protocols. IP was the only network layer protocol defined in the original documents. The working group is defining the use of other network layer protocols and options for PPP. The group will define the use of protocols including: bridging, ISO, DECNET (Phase IV and V), XNS, and others. In addition, it will define new PPP options for the existing protocol definitions, such as stronger authentication and encryption methods.
