Open Protocol

An open protocol is a set of rules and standards for data exchange and communication that is publicly available and not proprietary. This means that anyone can access, implement, and use it without restrictions. Open protocols are often developed collaboratively, allowing for widespread adoption and interoperability across various systems and platforms. Examples of open protocols include HTTP (for web browsing) and SMTP (for email). These protocols help ensure that different technologies and software can communicate and work together effectively.
