The Bundle Protocol, which is an end-to-end protocol for the exchange of messages in Delay Tolerant Networks (DTN), is on its way to be released in version 7. Therefor it is interesting, which features are supported by the different existing implementations of BPv7. I have examained four existing implementations of BPv7 regarding the features they’re supporting. The results are written down in this paper. The corresponding presentation can be downloaded here.
The Bundle Protocol is an end-to-end protocol for the exchange of messages in Delay Tolerant Networks (DTN). Version 6 of the Bundle Protocol was published 2007 as an experimental specification in RFC 5050. After gaining experience from different implementations of this experimental specification, version 7 was published as an Internet Draft in 2016. I have compared those two versions of the Bundle Protocol during a student research project. The result and the complementary presentation can be downloaded here.
