With the experience gained from investigations of a uniform process oriented addressing mechanism, it is reasonable to ask what additional capabilities such addressing structures given the designer. Of particular interest are systems which provide a uniform interprocess intercommunication capability which utilizes an addressing mechanism based on process addressing rather than on the normal machine orientated addressing scheme. The protocol presented is designed to operate within a network consisting of reasonably secure hosts, secure communications processors which interface the hosts to the network, and highly vulnerable communications links. Security is achieved by a dynamic process renaming scheme which is centered in the communications processors. Dynamic renaming is achieved by mutually agreed upon algorithms which generate the names and sequencing keys contained in the messages. The analysis of the protocol using a technique which provides a means of certifying prior to implementation that a protocol exhibits specific characteristics of message flow is presented.
