CDG Protocol

CDG Protocol हे खरं म्हणजे एखाद्या चित्रपटाचं नाव वाटेल किंवा suspense thriller चित्रपटातील काहीतरी सांकेतिक शब्द वाटेल. वस्तुत: हा प्रोटोकॉल म्हणजे मी आणि माझा मित्र पॅरीसला चार्ल्स द गॅाल (Charles de Gaulle) विमानतळावर कसं भेटायचं याचा प्रोटोकॉल होता. पॅरीसला विमानतळावर दोघांकडेही फोन नव्हते. विमानतळावर Wi-Fi 15 मिनिटेच फुकट होतं. दोघांच्या विमानांच्या पोचण्याच्या वेळात 3-4 तासांचं अंतर होतं. दोन्ही विमानं वेगवेगळ्या टर्मिनलला जाणार होती. त्यात पुन्हा विमान उशीरा पोचल तर काय करायचं. या सगळ्याचा विचार करून तास भर chat केल्यावर मित्राने ही  जबाबदारी माझ्यावर सोपवली. मग मी हापिसात जवळ-जवळ 3/4 तास खर्च करून काही पायऱ्या लिहिल्या. मी काय करायचं आणि मित्राने काय करायचं यासाठी दोन वेगवेगळे संच झाले. ते सगळं एकत्र करून जे काही स्पष्ट शब्दात लिहील. तो ड्राफ्ट म्हणजे हा CDG Protocol. आमचा विचार आहे की  तो IETF कडे प्रमाणिकरणासाठी पाठवावा (RFC 2012).


Following is a RFC for this protocol. IF it looks okay the add hotel details and to it. so that I can take printout tomorrow.
Seriously I am exhausted by this protocol writing.
