Abbreviated as ICE, an XML-based standard protocol for content syndication over the Internet. The protocol uses XML meta tags to define the format of content transaction messages sent between servers. The syndicated content is typically a download that is automatically transmitted for an agreed-upon price. Because an ICE server is often integrated with a content management system, neither the supplier or content recipient needs to be concerned with manually formatting the syndicated data.
