The Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP) is an
application profile of the Extensible Markup Language (XML) that
enables the near-real-time exchange of structured yet extensible data
between any two or more network entities.  This document defines
XMPP's core protocol methods: setup and teardown of XML streams,
channel encryption, authentication, error handling, and communication
primitives for messaging, network availability ("presence"), and
request-response interactions.  This document obsoletes RFC 3920. 

This document is a product of the Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.
