This document describes a simple mechanism enabling a first system to discover the application protocols that are supported by another system. This mechanism intends to be used when the two system actors are discovering the other party for the first time, or when an actor wants to publish updateable protocols capabilities (new supported protocols, or changes in existing protocols).

The version 1.0.1 is an errata version that corrects some typos on some examples provided in the specification.
