The IC-SC is responsible for *specifying* a protocol stack in sufficient detail to ensure interoperability between two implementations using that stack.  It is not going to *develop* a replacement for TLS (the transport layer *security* protocol), nor will it *develop* a replacement for http (the hypertext *transport* protocol).   It will re-use existing protocols, and it will create whatever additional glue is necessary (such as a standard media type for openc2 messages to be used in http headers) needed to ensure interoperability.

As Duncan said, there are existing implementations that interoperate using existing transport procols.   But an implementation is not a spec.  The job of the IC-SC is to write down a spec.  That has been its job from day one.
