The Interactive Sharing Transfer Protocol Version 1.0


The Interactive Sharing Transfer Protocol (ISTP) supports the sharing of information about a virtual world among a group of user processes. ISTP allows the interoperation of diverse systems running on diverse hardware. The key advantages of ISTP are that it supports (1) real-time interaction between users, (2) the communication of every kind of information required in a virtual world, and (3) scalability to large numbers of simultaneous users and large virtual worlds.
