The Internet Open Trading Protocol (IOTP) provides a data exchange
format for trading purposes while integrating existing pure payment 
protocols seamlessly.  This motivates the multiple layered system
architecture which consists of at least some generic IOTP application
core and multiple specific payment modules.

This document addresses a common interface between the IOTP
application core and the payment modules, enabling the
interoperability between these kinds of modules.  Furthermore, such an
interface provides the foundations for a plug-in-mechanism in actual
implementations of IOTP application cores.

Such interfaces exist at the Consumers', the Merchants' and the
Payment Handlers' installations connecting the IOTP application core
and the payment software components/legacy systems.

This document is a product of the Internet Open Trading Protocol
Working Group of the IETF.
