The Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol (RFC 2246) includes
features to negotiate selection of a lossless data compression method
as part of the TLS Handshake Protocol and then to apply the algorithm
associated with the selected method as part of the TLS Record
Protocol.  TLS defines one standard compression method, which
specifies that data exchanged via the record protocol will not be
compressed.  This document describes an additional compression method
associated with the Lempel-Ziv-Stac (LZS) lossless data compression
algorithm for use with TLS.  This document also defines the
application of the LZS algorithm to the TLS Record Protocol.
