Transporting Tokens

Some of the important JGSS operations generate tokens in the form of Java™ byte arrays. It is the responsibility of the application to forward the tokens from one JGSS peer to the other. The protocol used by the application for transporting tokens is not constrained by JGSS in any way and JGSS tokens can be transported together with other application (non-JGSS) data. But only JGSS-specific tokens can be fed into JGSS operations.
