Recursion Depth

An implementation MUST support a recursion depth of at least eight levels.<2> The depth of recursion that an application uses depends on the size of the signature file that is being transferred versus how many chunks of the signature file are required to be transferred for each recursion level. The application must determine when bandwidth would be better utilized by just sending a bigger signature file to avoid another round of signature data transfer.

The determination of recursion depth is application-specific, and is not addressed in this document. For an example of the determination of recursion depth, see [MS-FRS2] section
