Noticed while looking through the new DTN2 ciphersuite code...
Is there a specification of the BSP mutable canonicalization of a primary header in Compressed Bundle Header Encoding format (RFC 6260)?
Would you generate the string "ipn:<scheme offset>:<ssp offset>" and use that for the EIDs and lengths?
And use "dtn:none" for the case where the offsets are both zero?
