Data in this format is transmitted via Sealed Media's proprietary 
SEAL protocol, which is modelled on HTTP. This protcol is used 
solely for communication between the Sealed Media client and server. 
As the data format is private and encrypted using well-known algorithms, 
it is unlikely that the data could be spoofed. Both client and server 
are designed to refuse to work with data that is corrupt or ill-formed. 
This data does not contain any executable material.

Interoperability considerations :

format or semantics, except to refer to the software and specifications 
provided by Sealed Media. Company information may be obtained at
