The Handle System is a general-purpose global name service that allows 
secured name resolution and administration over the public Internet. The 
Handle System manages handles, which are unique names for digital 
objects and other Internet resources. This document specifies the 
protocol used between handle system clients and servers for handle 
resolution and administration. The document assumes that readers are 
familiar with the basic concepts of the Handle System as introduced in 
the 'Handle System Overview' [1], as well as the data model and service 
definition given in the 'Handle System Namespace and Service Definition' 
document [2].
