IBO doesn't currently use anything like the TLS (that I understand) when establishing callback channels. I thought TLS was about securing connections across networks (Transport-level Security). You seem to be talking about isolating invocations of a procedure from one another, threads actually (for which IBO has a robust mechanism and I can't comment about FIB+).

Are you talking about a different thing for which TLS is an acronym? I suspect so...maybe "thread-local storage" or something along those lines?
