COTP (ISO 8073) is running on the host and may be part of an ICCP
server, MMS application, or substation automation device that uses
IEC61850 / UCA.
The ICCP stack (and other protocols such as MMS and IEC 61850) include
ISO 8073 (RFC 905) at the Transport Layer. ISO 8073 specifies the
Connection Oriented Transport Protocol (COTP) that uses a pair of user
configurable 16-bit numeric, or in some cases ASCII string values, to
identify client endpoints called Transport Service Access Points
Note that ICCP by itself does not offer protection against
eavesdropping, spoofing, man-in-the-middle, and similar attacks.
