Space Internetworking Services Area

The Space Internetworking Services Area (SIS) supports the work of the CCSDS by providing services and protocols to address networked interactions of many forms: - between spacecraft and earth-based resources, - among spacecraft, - between spacecraft and landed elements, and - within heterogeneous spacecraft. The SIS Area deals with communication services and protocols that are independent of specific link technology (as a lower layer bound) and independent of application-specific semantics (as an upper bound). This covers essentially the network through application layers of the OSI reference model. The SIS Area accommodates all ranges of delay, interactivity, and directionality, although not all protocols are appropriate for all environments.

Space Communications Protocol Specification (SCPS)—Transport Protocol. Blue Book. Issue 2. October 2006.
The four Space Communications Protocol Specification (SCPS) Recommendations define a protocol suite that is parallel in function to, and interoperable with, the protocols of the Earth-based Internet (FTP/TCP/IP). The SCPS protocols have been optimized to overcome problems associated with using Internet protocols in space. This Recommendation defines the transport-layer protocols and services of the SCPS protocol suite. The current issue of Space Communications Protocol Specification (SCPS) Transport Protocol (SCPS-TP) specification: - adds optional support for Selective Acknowledgements (SACK) and Explicit Congestion Notification (ECN)- defines semantics to extend SCPS-TP signaling to allow optional inclusion of vendor- and community-specific options. The CCSDS conducts periodic reconfirmation reviews of its publications to assure their continued relevance. This Recommended Standard has been reconfirmed through June 2022.

Operation of CFDP over Encapsulation Service. Magenta Book. Issue 1. March 2014.
This CCSDS Recommended Practice specifies how to operate the CCSDS File Delivery Protocol (CFDP) over the CCSDS Encapsulation Service as provided for Earth-to-spacecraft, spacecraft-to-Earth, and spacecraft-to-spacecraft communications. It sets out the communications architecture for CFDP operating over the Encapsulation Service. It describes the service expected by CFDP of the underlying layers and reconciles this with the service provided by the Encapsulation Service.
CCSDS File Delivery Protocol (CFDP). Blue Book. Issue 4. January 2007.
This Recommended Standard defines a protocol suitable for the transmission of files to and from spacecraft data storage and capable of operating in a wide variety of mission configurations. In addition to the purely file delivery related functions, the protocol includes file management services to allow control over the storage medium. Although the protocol can operate over a wide range of subnetwork services, this Recommended Standard assumes the use of existing CCSDS packet services. The current issue incorporates corrections and clarifications recommended by the CFDP Interoperability Testing Working Group.
