3096    Degermark       Jul 2001        Requirements for robust
                                        IP/UDP/RTP header compression

This document contains requirements for robust IP/UDP/RTP (Internet
Protocol/User Datagram Protocol/Real-Time Transport Protocol) header
compression to be developed by the ROHC (Robust Header Compression) WG.
It is based on the ROHC charter, discussions in the WG, the 3GPP
document "3GPP TR 23.922", version 1.0.0 of October 1999, as well as
contributions from 3G.IP.  This memo provides information for the

3093    Gaynor          1 Apr 2001      Firewall Enhancement Protocol
                                        (FEP)

Internet Transparency via the end-to-end architecture of the Internet
has allowed vast innovation of new technologies and services [1].
However, recent developments in Firewall technology have altered this
model and have been shown to inhibit innovation.  We propose the
Firewall Enhancement Protocol (FEP) to allow innovation, without
violating the security model of a Firewall.  This memo provides
information for the Internet community.

3092    Eastlake        1 Apr 2001      Etymology of "Foo"

Approximately 212 RFCs so far, starting with RFC 269, contain the terms
`foo', `bar', or `foobar' as metasyntactic variables without any proper

3090    Lewis           Mar 2001        DNS Security Extension
                                        Clarification on Zone Status

The definition of a secured zone is presented, clarifying and updating
sections of RFC 2535.  RFC 2535 defines a zone to be secured based on a
per algorithm basis, e.g., a zone can be secured with RSA keys, and not
secured with DSA keys.  This document changes this to define a zone to
be secured or not secured regardless of the key algorithm used (or not
used).  To further simplify the determination of a zone's status,
"experimentally secure" status is deprecated.  [STANDARDS TRACK]

                                        service

The OpenLDAP Project is operating an experimental LDAP (Lightweight

This memo describes a useful way to conceptualize the use of the
standard SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) Request-URI (Uniform Resource
Identifier) that the authors and many members of the SIP community think
is suitable as a convention.  It does not define any new protocol with
respect to RFC 2543.  This memo provides information for the Internet
community.

                                        Termination Systems

This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB) for
use with network management protocols in the Internet community.  In
particular, it defines a basic set of managed objects for SNMP-based
(Simple Network Management Protocol) management of the Baseline Privacy
Interface (BPI), which provides data privacy for DOCSIS 1.0 (Data-Over-
Cable Service Interface Specifications) compliant Cable Modems and Cable
Modem Termination Systems.  This MIB is defined as an extension to the
DOCSIS Radio Frequency Interface MIB, RFC 2670.  This memo provides
information for the Internet community.

3082    Kempf           Mar 2001        Notification and Subscription
                                        for SLP

The Service Location Protocol (SLP) provides mechanisms whereby service
agent clients can advertise and user agent clients can query for
services.  The design is very much demand-driven, so that user agents
only obtain service information when they specifically ask for it.
There exists another class of user agent applications, however, that
requires notification when a new service appears or disappears. In the
RFC 2608 design, these applications are forced to poll the network to
catch changes.  In this document, we describe a protocol for allowing
such clients to be notified when a change occurs, removing the need for
polling.  This memo defines an Experimental Protocol for the Internet
community.

3081    Rose            Mar 2001        Mapping the BEEP Core onto TCP

                                        Encryption (MPPE)

This document describes the method used to derive initial MPPE session
keys from a variety of credential types.  It is expected that this memo
will be updated whenever Microsoft defines a new key derivation method
for MPPE, since its primary purpose is to provide an open, easily
accessible reference for third-parties wishing to interoperate with
Microsoft products.  This memo provides information for the Internet
community.

3053    Durand          Jan 2001        IPv6 Tunnel Broker

The motivation for the development of the tunnel broker model is to help
early IPv6 adopters to hook up to an existing IPv6 network (e.g., the
6bone) and to get stable, permanent IPv6 addresses and DNS names.  The
concept of the tunnel broker was first presented at Orlando's IETF in
December 1998.  Two implementations were demonstrated during the
Grenoble IPng & NGtrans interim meeting in February 1999.  This memo
provides information for the Internet community.

                                        Option

Newer high-speed public Internet access technologies call for a high-
speed modem to have a local area network (LAN) attachment to one or more
customer premise hosts.  It is advantageous to use the Dynamic Host
Configuration Protocol (DHCP) as defined in RFC 2131 to assign customer
premise host IP addresses in this environment.  However, a number of
security and scaling problems arise with such "public" DHCP use.  This
document describes a new DHCP option to address these issues.  This
option extends the set of DHCP options as defined in RFC 2132.

A fundamental concept in MPLS is that two Label Switching Routers (LSRs)

and through them.  This common understanding is achieved by using a set
of procedures, called a label distribution protocol, by which one LSR
informs another of label bindings it has made.  This document describes

Distribution Protocol) by which LSRs distribute labels to support MPLS
