How many people here have heard of this little horror ?
From its abstract:
"Internet Transparency via the end-to-end architecture of the Internet
has allowed vast innovation of new technologies and services . However,
recent developments in Firewall technology have altered this model and
have been shown to inhibit innovation. We propose the Firewall Enhancement
Protocol (FEP) to allow innovation, without violating the security model
of a Firewall. With no cooperation from a firewall operator, the FEP
allows ANY application to traverse a Firewall..."
Kind of sounds like UPnP to me, but hey, what do I know :)
