The OFTP2 protocol, defined in RFC 5024, is used primarily by the automotive industry for the secure exchange of documents between trading partners. Unlike AS2 which operates in a single direction where an AS2 station can send documents to an AS2 server, OFTP2 operates in peer-to-peer mode where each peer can both send and receive documents and optionally forward documents for indirect transfers. Security of document exchange is achieved using a variety of methods including TLS (Transport Layer Security), peer authentication, message encryption, message signing and signed receipts.
