This document specifies version 1.2 of the Datagram Transport Layer
Security (DTLS) protocol.  The DTLS protocol provides communications
privacy for datagram protocols.  The protocol allows client/server
applications to communicate in a way that is designed to prevent
eavesdropping, tampering, or message forgery.  The DTLS protocol is
based on the Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol and provides
equivalent security guarantees.  Datagram semantics of the underlying
transport are preserved by the DTLS protocol.  This document
updates DTLS 1.0 to work with TLS version 1.2.  [STANDARDS-TRACK]
