This is an experiment in trying to classify the RFCs. There are two different attempts here, the generalized approach and the specific protocol approach. This page is the generalized approach. It is a crude attempt to automatically categorize the RFCs by keywords. It is far from perfect as seen by the large number of Unclassified RFCs listed below.

The specific protocol approach can be seen by looking at the ftp-rfcs.html page. This type of page takes more care and feeding to keep accurate but it is much more useful to the community. If you would like to adopt a protocol and develop/maintain a specific protocol page, please let us know at adopt-a-protocol@faqs.org As always, suggestions and ideas are appreciated. Please send them to rfc-admin@faqs.org.
