HTTPng Overview

HTTP 1.0 is very inefficient, incurring penalties from large
requests, TCP's setup delays and slow start mechanism

HTTPng adds a Session Layer, using ASN.1 and the packed encoding rules

The protocol is designed to work well for the commonest cases, without penalising less frequent cases.
HTTPng allows simple and compound objects to be transferred over wide area networks efficiently.
HTTPng allows a client or server to initiate a new request without waiting for previous requests to complete. It is possible to transfer multiple objects in parallel over a single connection.
Mandatory display:
HTTPng supports the mandatory display of information relating to an object, such as licensing information, copyright, authorship.
