The VlanHello protocol is part of the InterSwitch Message Protocol
(ISMP) which provides interswitch communication between switches running
Cabletron's SecureFast VLAN (SFVLAN) product.  Switches use the
VlanHello protocol to discover their neighboring switches and establish
the topology of the switch fabric.  This memo provides information for

provide security services, the S/MIME agent MUST certify that the public
key is valid. S/MIME agents MUST use PKIX certificates to validate
public keys as described in the Internet X.509 Public Key Infrastructure
(PKIX) Certificate and CRL Profile.  [STANDARDS-TRACK]

2626    Nesser II       Jun 1999        The Internet and the
                                        Millennium Problem (Year 2000)

The Year 2000 Working Group (WG) has conducted an investigation into the
millennium problem as it regards Internet related protocols.  This
investigation only targeted the protocols as documented in the Request
For Comments Series (RFCs).  This investigation discovered little reason
for concern with regards to the functionality of the protocols.  A few
minor cases of older implementations still using two digit years (ala
RFC 850) were discovered, but almost all Internet protocols were given a
clean bill of health.  Several cases of "period" problems were
discovered, where a time field would "roll over" as the size of field
was reached.  In particular, there are several protocols, which have 32
bit, signed integer representations of the number of seconds since
January 1, 1970 which will turn negative at Tue Jan 19 03:14:07 GMT
2038.  Areas whose protocols will be effected by such problems have been
notified so that new revisions will remove this limitation.  This memo
provides information for the Internet community.

generated from them.  RPSL is extensible; new routing protocols and new
protocol features can be introduced at any time.  [STANDARDS-TRACK]
