PPAPI-host NPAPI-plugin adapter. As you know, Adobe have suspended further development of Flash player plugin for GNU/Linux. Latest available as an NPAPI plugin version 11.2 will get security updates for five years (since its release on May 4th, 2012), but further development have been ceased. Fortunately or not, newer versions are still available for Linux as a part of Chrome browser, where Flash comes bundled in a form of PPAPI plugin. PPAPI or Pepper Plugin API is an interface promoted by Chromium/Chrome team for browser plugins. It's NPAPI-inspired yet significantly different API which have every conceivable function plugin may want. Two-dimensional graphics, OpenGL ES, font rendering, network access, audio, and so on. It's huge, there are 111 groups of functions, called interfaces which todays Chromium browser offers to plugins. Although specs are not final yet, and new interface versions are arising, with some older ones getting deleted; rate of change have significantly slowed down.
