This memo.

1098    Case         Apr 89    A Simple Network Management
                               Protocol (SNMP)

This RFC is a re-release of RFC 1067, with a changed "Status of this
Memo" section.  This memo defines a simple protocol by which management
information for a network element may be inspected or altered by
logically remote users.  In particular, together with its companion
memos which describe the structure of management information along with
the initial management information base, these documents provide a
simple, workable architecture and system for managing TCP/IP-based
internets and in particular the Internet.

1097    Miller       Apr 89    Telnet Subliminal-Message Option

This RFC specifies a standard for the Internet community.  Hosts on the
Internet that display subliminal messages within the Telnet protocol are
expected to adopt and implement this standard.

1096    Marcy        Mar 89    Telnet X Display Location Option

This RFC specifies a standard for the Internet community.  Hosts on the
Internet that transmit the X display location within the Telnet protocol

are expected to adopt and implement this standard.

1095    Warrier      Apr 89    The Common Management Information
                               Services and Protocol over TCP/IP
                               (CMOT)

This memo defines a network management architecture that uses the
International Organization for Standardization's (ISO) Common Management
Information Services/Common Management Information Protocol (CMIS/CMIP)
in a TCP/IP environment.  This architecture provides a means by which
control and monitoring information can be exchanged between a manager
and a remote network element.  In particular, this memo defines the
means for implementing the Draft International Standard (DIS) version of
CMIS/CMIP on top of Internet transport protocols for the purpose of
carrying management information defined in the Internet-standard
management information base.  DIS CMIS/CMIP is suitable for deployment
in TCP/IP networks while CMIS/CMIP moves toward becoming an
International Standard.  Together with the relevant ISO standards and
the companion RFCs that describe the initial structure of management
information and management information base, these documents provide the
basis for a comprehensive architecture and system for managing TCP/IP-
based internets, and in particular the Internet.

1094    Sun          Mar 89    NFS: Network File System
                               Protocol Specification

This RFC describes a protocol that Sun Microsystems, Inc., and others
are using.  A new version of the protocol is under development, but
others may benefit from the descriptions of the current protocol, and
discussion of some of the design issues.

1093    Braun        Feb 89    The NSFNET Routing Architecture

around the new NSFNET Backbone, with specific emphasis on the interface
between the backbone and its attached networks.

1092    Rekhter      Feb 89    EGP and Policy Based Routing
                               in the New NSFNET Backbone

This memo discusses implementation decisions for routing issues in the
NSFNET, especially in the NSFNET Backbone.  Of special concern is the
restriction of routing information to advertize the best route as
established by a policy decision.

1091    VanBokkelen  Feb 89    Telnet Terminal-Type Option

This RFC specifies a standard for the Internet community.  Hosts on the
Internet that exchange terminal type information within the Telnet
protocol are expected to adopt and implement this standard.

This standard supersedes RFC 930.  A change is made to permit cycling
through a list of possible terminal types and selecting the most
appropriate

1090    Ullmann      Feb 89    SMTP on X.25

This memo proposes a standard for SMTP on the virtual circuit facility
provided by the X.25 standard of the CCITT.

1089    Schoffstall  Feb 89    SNMP over Ethernet

This memo describes an experimental method by which the Simple Network
Management Protocol (SNMP) can be used over Ethernet MAC layer framing
instead of the Internet UDP/IP protocol stack.  This specification is
useful for LAN based network elements that support no higher layer
protocols beyond the MAC sub-layer.

1088    McLaughlin   Feb 89    A Standard for the Transmission of IP
                               Datagrams over NetBIOS Networks

(IAB) concerning the proper use of the resources of the Internet.

1086    Onions       Dec 88    ISO-TP0 bridge between TCP and X.25

This memo proposes a standard for the Internet community.  Hosts on the
Internet that choose to implement ISO TP0 transport connectivity between
TCP and X.25 based hosts are expected to experiment with this proposal.
TCP port 146 is reserved for this proposal.

1085    Rose         Dec 88    ISO Presentation Services
                               on top of TCP/IP-based internets

RFC 1006 describes a mechanism for providing the ISO transport service
on top of TCP/IP.  Once this method is applied, one may implement "real"
ISO applications on top of TCP/IP-based internets, by simply
implementing OSI session, presentation, and application services on top
of the transport service access point which is provided on top of the
TCP.  Although straight-forward, there are some environments in which
the richness provided by the OSI application layer is desired, but it is
nonetheless impractical to implement the underlying OSI infrastructure
(i.e., the presentation, session, and transport services on top of the
TCP).

This memo describes an approach for providing "stream-lined" support of
OSI application services on top of TCP/IP-based internets for such
constrained environments.  This memo proposes a standard for the
Internet community.

1084    Reynolds     Dec 88      BOOTP Vendor Information Extensions

Networking.  This RFC is for your information and you are encouraged to
comment on the issues presented.

1076    Trewitt      Nov 88      HEMS Monitoring and Control Language

This RFC specifies a query language for monitoring and control of
network entities.  This RFC supercedes RFC 1023, extending the query
language and providing more discussion of the underlying issues.

This language is a component of the High-Level Entity Monitoring System
(HEMS) described in RFC 1021 and RFC 1022.  Readers may wish to consult
these RFCs when reading this memo.  RFC 1024 contains detailed
assignments of numbers and structures used in this system.  Portions of
RFC 1024 that define query language structures are superceded by
definitions in this memo.  This memo assumes a knowledge of the ISO data
encoding standard, ASN.1.

1075    Waitzman     Nov 88      Distance Vector Multicast Routing
                                 Protocol

This RFC describes a distance-vector-style routing protocol for routing
multicast datagrams through an internet.  It is derived from the Routing
Information Protocol (RIP), and implements multicasting as described in
RFC-1054.  This is an experimental protocol, and its implementation is
not recommended at this time.

1074    Rekhter      Oct 88      The NSFNET Backbone SPF based Interior
                                 Gateway Protocol

ISO ES-IS routing protocols within the NSFNET backbone network.

1073    Waitzman     Oct 88      Telnet Window Size Option

This RFC describes a proposed Telnet option to allow a client to convey
window size to a Telnet server.

1072    Jacobson     Oct 88      TCP Extensions for Long-Delay Paths

This RFC proposes a set of extensions to the TCP protocol to provide
efficient operation over a path with a high bandwidth*delay product.
These extensions are not proposed as an Internet standard at this time.
Instead, they are intended as a basis for further experimentation and
research on transport protocol performance.

1071    Braden       Aug 88      Computing the Internet Checksum

Organization for Standardization (ISO) Open Systems Interconnection
(OSI) network layer protocols over the Internet and requests discussion
and suggestions for improvements to this scenario.  This RFC also
proposes the creation of an experimental OSI internet.  To participate
in the experimental OSI internet, a system must abide by the agreements
set forth in this RFC.

1069    Callon       Feb 89      Guidelines for the use of Internet-IP
                                 addresses in the ISO Connectionless-
                                 Mode Network Protocol

This RFC suggests an addressing scheme for use with the ISO
Connectionless Network Protocol (CLNP) in the Internet.  This is a
solution to one of the problems inherent in the use of "ISO-grams" in
the Internet.  This memo is a revision of RFC 986.  This RFC suggests a
proposed protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion
and suggestions for improvements.

1068    DeSchon      Aug 88      Background File Transfer Program
                                 (BFTP)

keywords) used in protocols in the Internet community.  Distribution of
this memo is unlimited.

1059    Mills         Jul 88      Network Time Protocol (Version 1)
                                  Specification and Implementation

This memo describes the Network Time Protocol (NTP), specifies its
formal structure and summarizes information useful for its
implementation.  NTP provides the mechanisms to synchronize time and
coordinate time distribution in a large, diverse internet operating at
rates from mundane to lightwave.  It uses a returnable-time design in
which a distributed subnet of time servers operating in a self-
organizing, hierarchical master-slave configuration synchronizes logical
clocks within the subnet and to national time standards via wire or
radio.  The servers can also redistribute reference time via local
routing algorithms and time daemons.

The NTP architectures, algorithms and protocols which have evolved over
several years of implementation and refinement are described in this
document.  The prototype system, which has been in regular operation in
the Internet for the last two years, is described in an Appendix along
with performance data which shows that timekeeping accuracy throughout
most portions of the Internet can be ordinarily maintained to within a
few tens of milliseconds, even the cases of failure or disruption of
clocks, time servers or nets. This is a Draft Standard for an Elective
protocol.

1058    Hedrick       Jun 88      Routing Information Protocol

This RFC describes an existing protocol for exchanging routing
information among gateways and other hosts.  It is intended to be used
as a basis for developing gateway software for use in the Internet
community.

1057    Sun           Jun 88       RPC: Remote Procedure Call Protocol
                                   Specification Version 2

This RFC describes a standard that Sun Microsystems and others are
using, and is one we wish to propose for the Internet's consideration.
This memo is not an Internet standard at this time.

1056    Lambert       Jun 88   PCMAIL: A Distributed Mail System
                               for Personal Computers

This memo is a discussion of the Pcmail workstation based distributed
mail system.  It is identical to the discussion in RFC-993, save that a
new, much simpler mail transport protocol is described.  The new
transport protocol is the result of continued research into ease of
protocol implementation and use issues.

1055    Romkey         Jun 88    A Nonstandard for Transmission of
                                 IP Datagrams over Serial Lines: SLIP

The TCP/IP protocol family runs over a variety of network media: IEEE
802.3 (ethernet) and 802.5 (token ring) LAN's, X.25 lines, satellite
links, and serial lines.  There are standard encapsulations for IP
packets defined for many of these networks, but there is no standard for
serial lines.  SLIP, Serial Line IP, is a currently a de facto standard,
commonly used for point-to-point serial connections running TCP/IP.  It
is not an Internet standard.

1054    Deering        May 88      Host Extensions for IP Multicasting

This memo specifies the extensions required of a host implementation of
the Internet Protocol (IP) to support multicasting.  IP multicasting is
the transmission of an IP datagram to a "host group", a set hosts
identified by a single IP destination address.  A multicast datagram is
delivered to all members of its destination host group with the same
"best-efforts" reliability as regular unicast IP datagrams.  It is
proposed as a standard for IP multicasting in the Internet.  This
specification is a major revision of RFC-988.

1053    Levy           Apr 88       Telnet X.3 PAD Option

This RFC proposes a new option to Telnet for the Internet community, and
requests discussion and suggestions for improvements.

1052    Cerf           Apr 88      IAB Recommendations for the
                                   Development of Internet Network
                                   Management Standards

This RFC is intended to convey to the Internet community and other
interested parties the recommendations of the Internet Activities Board
(IAB) for the development of network management protocols for use in the
TCP/IP environment.  This memo does NOT, in and of itself, define or
propose an Official Internet Protocol.  It does reflect, however, the
policy of the IAB with respect to further network management development
in the short and long term.

1051    Prindeville     Mar 88     A Standard for the Transmission of IP
                                   Datagrams and ARP Packets over ARCNET
                                   Networks

This memo specifies a standard method of encapsulating Internet Protocol
(IP) and Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) datagrams on an ARCNET.  This
RFC is a standard protocol for the Internet community.

1050    Sun             Apr 88      RPC: Remote Procedure Call
                                    Protocol Specification

This memo specifies a message protocol used in implementing Sun's Remote
Procedure Call (RPC) package.  This RFC describes a standard that Sun
Microsystems and others are using and is one they wish to propose for
the Internet's consideration.  It is not an Internet standard at this
time.

1049    Sirbu           Mar 88      A Content-Type Header Field for
                                    Internet Messages

This memo suggests proposed additions to the Internet Mail Protocol,
RFC-822, for the Internet community, and requests discussion and
suggestions for improvements.

1048    Prindeville     Feb 88      BOOTP Vendor Information Extensions

This memo proposes an addition to the Bootstrap Protocol (BOOTP).
Comments and suggestions for improvements are sought.

1047    Partridge       Feb 88      Duplicate Messages and SMTP

An examination of a synchronization problem in the Simple Mail Transfer
Protocol (SMTP) is presented.  This synchronization problem can cause a
message to be delivered multiple times.  A method for avoiding this
problem is suggested.  Nodding familiarity with the SMTP specification,
RFC-821, is required.

1046    Prue            Feb 88      A Queuing Algorithm to Provide
                                    Type-of-Service for IP Links

This memo is intended to explore how Type-of-Service might be
implemented in the Internet.  The proposal describes a method of queuing
which can provide the different classes of service.  The technique also
prohibits one class of service from consuming excessive resources or
excluding other classes of service.  This is an "idea paper" and
discussion is strongly encouraged.

1045    Cheriton        Feb 88      VMTP: Versatile Message Transaction
                                    Protocol Protocol Specification

This memo specifies the Versatile Message Transaction Protocol (VMTP)
[Version 0.7 of 19-Feb-88], a transport protocol specifically designed
to support the transaction model of communication, as exemplified by
remote procedure call (RPC).  The full function of VMTP, including
support for security, real-time, asynchronous message exchanges,
streaming, multicast and idempotency, provides a rich selection to the
VMTP user level.  Subsettability allows the VMTP module for particular
clients and servers to be specialized and simplified to the services
actually required.  Examples of such simple clients and servers include
PROM network bootload programs, network boot servers, data sensors and
simple controllers, to mention but a few examples.  This RFC describes a
protocol proposed as a standard for the Internet community.

1044    Hardwick        Feb 88      Internet Protocol on Network Systems
                                    HYPERchannel Protocol Specification

This memo intends to provide a complete discussion of the protocols and
techniques used to embed DoD standard Internet Protocol datagrams (and
its associated higher level protocols) on Network Systems Corporation's
HYPERchannel equipment.  This document is directed toward network
planners and implementors who are already familiar with the TCP/IP
protocol suite and the techniques used to carry TCP/IP traffic on common
networks such as the DDN or the Ethernet.  No great familiarity with NSC
products is assumed; an appendix is devoted to a review of NSC

technologies and protocols.

1043    Yasuda          Feb 88      TELNET Data Entry Terminal Option
                                    DODIIS Implementation

This RFC suggests a proposed protocol on the TELNET Data Entry Terminal
(DET) Option - DODIIS Implementation for the Internet community.  It is
intended that this specification be capatible with the specification of
DET Option in RFC-732.  Discussion and suggests for improvements are
encouraged.

1042    Postel          Feb 88      A Standard for the Transmission of
                                    IP Datagrams over IEEE 802 Networks

Hosts on the Internet that want to support 3270 data stream within the
Telnet protocol, are expected to adopt and implement this standard.

1040    Linn            Jan 88      Privacy Enhancement for Internet
                                    Electronic Mail:  Part I Message
                                    Encipherment and Authentication
                                    Procedures

This RFC is the Outgrowth of a series of IAB Privacy Task Force meetings
and of internal working papers distributed for those meetings.  This
memo defines message encipherment and authentication procedures, as the
initial phase of an effort to provide privacy enhancement services for
electronic mail transfer in the Internet.  Detailed key management
mechanisms to support these procedures will be defined in a subsequent
RFC.  As a goal of this initial phase, it is intended that the
procedures defined here be compatible with a wide range of key
management approaches, including both conventional (symmetric) and
public-key (asymmetric) approaches for encryption of data encrypting
keys.  Use of conventional cryptography for message text encryption
and/or integrity check computation is anticipated.

This memo is a pre-publication draft of the revised Internet Protocol
Security Option.  This RFC reflects the version as approved by the
Protocol Standards Steering group, and is provided for informational
purposes only.  The final version of this document will be available
from Navy publications and should not differ from this document in any
major fashion.  This document will be published as a change to the MIL-
STD 1777, "Internet Protocol".

1037    Greenberg       Dec 87        NFILE - A File Access Protocol

This document includes a specification of the NFILE file access protocol
and its underlying levels of protocol, the Token List Transport Layer
and Byte Stream with Mark.  The goal of this specification is to promote
discussion of the ideas described here, and to encourage designers of
future file protocols to take advantage of these ideas.  A secondary
goal is to make the specification available to sites that might benefit
from implementing NFILE.

1036    Horton          Dec 87        Standard for Interchange of
                                      USENET Messages

This RFC defines the standard format for the interchange of network News
messages among USENET hosts.  It updates and replaces RFC-850,
reflecting version B2.11 of the News program.  This memo is distributed
as an RFC to make this information easily accessible to the Internet
community.  It does not specify an Internet standard.

1035    Mockapetris     Nov 87      Domain Names - Implementation
                                    Specification

the implementation of the Domain Name System.  It obsoletes RFC-883.
This memo documents the details of the domain name client - server
communication.

1034    Mockapetris     Nov 87      Domain Names - Concepts and
                                    Facilities

This RFC is the revised basic definition of The Domain Name System.  It
obsoletes RFC-882.  This memo describes the domain style names and their
used for host address look up and electronic mail forwarding.  It
discusses the clients and servers in the domain name system and the
protocol used between them.

1033    Lottor          Nov 87     Domain Administrators Operations
                                   Guide

This RFC provides guidelines for domain administrators in operating a
domain server and maintaining their portion of the hierarchical
database.  Familiarity with the domain system is assumed (see RFCs 1031,
1032, 1034, and 1035).

1032    Stahl           Nov 87     Domain Administrators Guide

Domains are administrative entities that provide decentralized
management of host naming and addressing.  The domain-naming system is
distributed and hierarchical.

This memo describes procedures for registering a domain with the Network
Information Center (NIC) of Defense Data Network (DDN), and offers
guidelines on the establishment and administration of a domain in
accordance with the requirements specified in RFC-920. It is recommended
that the guidelines described in this document be used by domain
administrators in the establishment and control of second-level domains.
The role of the domain administrator (DA) is that of coordinator,
manager, and technician.  If his domain is established at the second
level or lower in the tree, the domain administrator must register by
interacting with the management of the domain directly above this.

1031    Lazear          Nov 87     Milnet Name Domain Transition

This RFC consolidates information necessary for the implementation of
domain style names throughout the DDN/MILNET Internet community.  The
introduction of domain style names will impact all hosts in the
DDN/MILNET Internet.  This RFC is designed as an aid to implementors and
administrators by providing: 1) an overview of the transition process
from host tables to domains, 2) a timetable for the transition, and 3)
references to documentation and software relating to the domain system.

1030    Lambert         Nov 87     On Testing the NETBLT Protocol over
                                   Divers Networks

This memo describes the results gathered from testing NETBLT over three
networks of different bandwidths and round-trip delays.  The results are
not complete, but the information gathered so far has not been
promising.  The NETBLT protocol is specified in RFC-998; this document
assumes an understanding of the specification as described in RFC-998.

1029    Parr            May 88     A More Tolerant Approach to Address
                                   Resolution  for Multi-Lan system of
                                   Ethernets

This memo discusses an extension to a Bridge Protocol to detect and
disclose changes in heighbouring host address parameters in a Multi-Lan
system of Ethernets.  The problem is one which is appearing more and
more regularly as the interconnected systems grow larger on Campuses and
in Commercial Institutions.  This RFC suggests a protocol enhancement
for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions for
improvements.

equations in a workshop at the ACM SIGGRAPH Conference held in Anaheim,
California on 30 July 1987.

1018    McKenzie        Aug 87     Some Comments on SQuID

This memo is a discussion of some of the ideas expressed in RFC-1016 on
Source Quench.  This memo introduces the distinction of the cause of
congestion in a gateway between the effects of "Funneling" and
Mismatch".  It is offered in the same spirit as RFC-1016; to stimulate
discussion.  The opinions offered are personal, not corporate, opinions.

1017    Leiner          Aug 87     Network Requirements for Scientific
                                   Research

This RFC identifies the requirements on communication networks for
supporting scientific research.  It proposes some specific areas for
near term work, as well as some long term goals.  This is an "idea"
paper and discussion is strongly encouraged.

1016    Prue            July 87    Something a Host Could Do with Source
                                   Quench:  The Source Quench Introduced
                                   Delay (SQuID)

The memo is intended to explore the issue of what a host could do with a
source quench.  The proposal is for each source host IP module to
introduce some delay between datagrams sent to the same destination
host.  This is a "crazy idea paper" and discussion is essential.

1015    Leiner          July 87    Implementation Plan for Interagency
                                   Research Internet

outgrowth of the current Internet.  This is an "idea paper" and

discussion is strongly encouraged.

1014    Sun             Jun 87     XDR: External Data Representation
                                   Standard

XDR is a standard for the description and encoding of data.  It is
useful for transferring data between different computer architectures.
XDR fits into ISO presentation layer, and is roughly analogous in
purpose to X.409, ISO Abstract Syntax Notation.  The major difference
between these two is that XDR uses implicit typing, while X.409 uses
explicit typing.  This RFC is distributed for information only, it does
not establish a Internet standard.

1006     Rose           May 87     ISO Transport Services on top of
                                   the TCP Version: 3

This memo specifies a standard for the Internet community.  Hosts on the
Internet that choose to implement ISO transport services on top of the
TCP are expected to adopt and implement this standard.  TCP port 102 is
reserved for hosts which implement this standard.  This memo specifies
version 3 of the protocol and supersedes RFC-983.  Changes between the
protocol is described in RFC-983 and this memo are minor, but
unfortunately incompatible.

1005     Khanna         May 87     The ARPANET AHIP-E Host Access
                                   Protocol (Enhanced AHIP)

This RFC is a proposed specification for the encoding of Class A IP

addresses for use on ARPANET-style networks such as the Milnet and
Arpanet, and for enhancements to the ARPANET AHIP Host Access Protocol
(AHIP; formerly known as 1822).  These enhancements increase the size of
the PSN field, allow ARPANET hosts to use logical names to address each
other, allow for the communication of type-of-service information from
the host to the PSN and enable the PSN to provide congestion feedback to
the host on a connection basis.

1004     Mills          Apr 87     A Distributed-Protocol
                                   Authentication Scheme

The purpose of this RFC is to focus discussion on authentication
problems in the Internet and possible methods of solution.  The proposed
solutions this document are not intended as standards for the Internet
at this time.  Rather, it is hoped that a general consensus will emerge
as to the appropriate solution to authentication problems, leading
eventually to the adoption of standards.  This document suggests
mediated access-control and authentication procedures suitable for those
cases when an association is to be set up between users belonging to
different trust environments.

                                   Representation Standard

This memo is intended to identify and explore issues in defining a
standard for the exchange of mathematical equations.  No attempt is made
at a complete definition and more questions are asked than are answered.
Questions about the user interface are only addressed to the extent that
they affect interchange issues.

1002    NETBIOS         Mar 87     Protocol Standard for A NetBIOS
                                   Service on a TCP/UDP Transport:
