socket-inet Token

The socket-inet token describes a socket connection to a local port, which is used to represent the socket information in the Internet namespace. The socket-inet token has 4 fields: a token ID that identifies this token as a socket-inet token, a socket family field that indicates the Internet family (AF_INET, AF_OSI, and so on), the address of the local port, and the address of the socket. Figure A-24 shows a socket-inet token.
