  KERMIT
         Kl-10 Error-free Reciprocal Micro Interconnect over Tty lines
         

From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  Kermit
  
      A popular packet-oriented protocol from
     Columbia University for transferring text files and
     binary files on both full-duplex and half-duplex 8 bit
     and 7-bit serial connections in a system- and
     medium-independent fashion, and implemented on hundreds of
     different computer and operating system platforms.  On
     full-duplex connections a sliding window protocol with
     selective retransmission provides excellent performance and
     error recovery characteristics.  On 7-bit connections, locking
     shifts provide efficient transfer of 8-bit data.
  
     When properly implemented, as in the Columbia University
     Kermit Software collection, performance is equal to or better
     than other protocols such as ZMODEM, YMODEM, and XMODEM,
     especially on poor connections.
  
     Kermit is an open protocol - anybody can base their own
     program on it, but some Kermit software and source code is
     copyright by Columbia University.
