Internet & Networking "Google's efforts to improve Internet efficiency through the development of the SPDY (pronounced 'speedy') protocol got a major boost today when the chairman of the HTTP Working Group (HTTPbis), Mark Nottingham, called for it to be included in the HTTP 2.0 standard. SPDY is a protocol that's already used to a certain degree online; formal incorporation into the next-generation standard would improve its chances of being generally adopted."

Did you really mean SMTP when you talked about ASN.1 ?

Because I think you are mistaken, I've never seen it in SMTP. SMTP is an example of a text protocol.

All I could find about ASN.1 is a bug in the GSSAPI (authentication) of Microsoft Exchange.

Maybe you meant SNMP ?
