6. Communications Mechanisms Requirements|
6.1. Incident Report exchange will normally be initiated by humans using standard communication protocols and exchange mechanisms, for example, e-mail, HTTP, XML Web Services, FTP, etc.
FINE must not rely on communication mechanisms to satisfy requirements of current document.
The communication mechanisms must have no bearing on the authenticity, integrity, and confidentiality of the Incident Report itself. Communications security requirements may be applied separately according to local policy so are not defined by this document.
