3298    Faynberg        Aug 2002        Service in the Public Switched
                                        Telephone Network/Intelligent
                                        Network (PSTN/IN) Requesting
                                        InTernet Service (SPIRITS)
                                        Protocol Requirements

This document describes the SPIRITS protocol requirements, based on the
architecture presented in RFC 3136.  (SPIRITS stands for "Service in the
PSTN/IN Requesting InTernet Service".)  The purpose of the protocol is
to support services that originate in the Public Switched Telephone
Network (PSTN) and necessitate the interactions between the PSTN and the
Internet.  Similarly, such services are called SPIRITS services.
(Internet Call Waiting, Internet Caller-ID Delivery, and Internet Call
Forwarding are examples of SPIRIT services, but the protocol is to
define the building blocks from which many other services can be built.)
On the PSTN side, the SPIRITS services are initiated from the
Intelligent Network (IN) entities; the earlier IETF work on the
PSTN/Internet Interworking (PINT) resulted in the protocol (RFC 2848) in
support of the services initiated the other way around--from the
Internet to PSTN.

To this end, this document lists general requirements for the SPIRITS
protocol as well as those pertinent to IN, Wireless IN, and PINT
building blocks.  The document also presents the SPIRITS WG consensus on
the choice of the SPIRITS signaling protocol.  This memo provides
information for the Internet community.

                                        for Cryptographic Message
                                        Syntax (CMS)

This document defines a format for using compressed data as a
Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS) content type.  Compressing data
before transmission provides a number of advantages, including the
elimination of data redundancy which could help an attacker, speeding up
processing by reducing the amount of data to be processed by later steps
(such as signing or encryption), and reducing overall message size.
Although there have been proposals for adding compression at other
levels (for example at the MIME or SSL level), these don't address the
problem of compression of CMS content unless the compression is supplied
by an external means (for example by intermixing MIME and CMS).

                                        (SDP)

This document defines a mechanism by which two entities can make use of
the Session Description Protocol (SDP) to arrive at a common view of a
multimedia session between them.  In the model, one participant offers
the other a description of the desired session from their perspective,
and the other participant answers with the desired session from their
perspective.  This offer/answer model is most useful in unicast sessions
where information from both participants is needed for the complete view
of the session.  The offer/answer model is used by protocols like the
Session Initiation Protocol (SIP).  [STANDARDS TRACK]

                                        (SIP): Locating SIP Servers

The Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) uses DNS procedures to allow a
client to resolve a SIP Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) into the IP
address, port, and transport protocol of the next hop to contact.  It
also uses DNS to allow a server to send a response to a backup client if
the primary client has failed.  This document describes those DNS

The local Message Bus (Mbus) is a light-weight message-oriented
coordination protocol for group communication between application
components.  The Mbus provides automatic location of communication
peers, subject based addressing, reliable message transfer and different
types of communication schemes.  The protocol is layered on top of IP
multicast and is specified for IPv4 and IPv6.  The IP multicast scope is
limited to link-local multicast.  This document specifies the Mbus
protocol, i.e., message syntax, addressing and transport mechanisms.

For historical interest, this document captures the EF Design Team's
proposed solution, preferred by the original authors of RFC 2598 but not
adopted by the working group in December 2000.  The original definition
of EF was based on comparison of forwarding on an unloaded network.
This experimental Delay Bound (DB) PHB requires a bound on the delay of
packets due to other traffic in the network.  At the Pittsburgh IETF
meeting in August 2000, the Differentiated Services working group faced
serious questions regarding RFC 2598 - the group's standards track
definition of the Expedited Forwarding (EF) Per Hop Behavior (PHB).  An
'EF Design Team' volunteered to develop a re-expression of RFC 2598,
bearing in mind the issues raised in the DiffServ group.  At the San
Diego IETF meeting in December 2000 the DiffServ working group decided
to pursue an alternative re-expression of the EF PHB.  This memo

HTTP/1.1 defines a Content-MD5 header that allows a server to include a
digest of the response body.  However, this is specifically defined to
cover the body of the actual message, not the contents of the full file
(which might be quite different, if the response is a Content-Range, or
uses a delta encoding).  Also, the Content-MD5 is limited to one
specific digest algorithm; other algorithms, such as SHA-1 (Secure Hash
Standard), may be more appropriate in some circumstances.  Finally,
HTTP/1.1 provides no explicit mechanism by which a client may request a
digest.  This document proposes HTTP extensions that solve these
problems.  [STANDARDS TRACK]

                                        server/resolver message size
                                        requirements

This document mandates support for EDNS0 (Extension Mechanisms for DNS)
in DNS entities claiming to support either DNS Security Extensions or A6
records.  This requirement is necessary because these new features
increase the size of DNS messages.  If EDNS0 is not supported fall back
to TCP will happen, having a detrimental impact on query latency and DNS
server load.  This document updates RFC 2535 and RFC 2874, by adding new
requirements.  [STANDARDS TRACK]

3225    Conrad          Dec 2001        Indicating Resolver Support of
                                        DNSSEC

In order to deploy DNSSEC (Domain Name System Security Extensions)
operationally, DNSSEC aware servers should only perform automatic
inclusion of DNSSEC RRs when there is an explicit indication that the
resolver can understand those RRs.  This document proposes the use of a
bit in the EDNS0 header to provide that explicit indication and
describes the necessary protocol changes to implement that notification.

3224    Guttman         Jan 2002        Vendor Extensions for Service
                                        Location Protocol, Version 2

This document specifies how the features of the Service Location
Protocol, Version 2 allow for vendor extensibility safely, with no
possibility of collisions.  The specification introduces a new SLPv2
extension:  The Vendor Opaque Extension.  While proprietary protocol
extensions are not encouraged by IETF standards, it is important that
they not hinder interoperability of compliant implementations when they
are undertaken.  This document udpates RFC 2608, "The Service Location
Protocol."  [STANDARDS TRACK]

                                        Information Base (FIB) based
                                        Router Performance

This document describes the terms to be used in a methodology that
determines the IP packet forwarding performance of IP routers as a
function of the forwarding information base installed within a router.
The forwarding performance of an IP router may be dependent upon or may
be linked to the composition and size of the forwarding information base
installed within a router.  This memo provides information for the
Internet community.

3221    Huston          Dec 2001        Commentary on Inter-Domain
                                        Routing in the Internet

This document examines the various longer term trends visible within the
characteristics of the Internet's BGP table and identifies a number of
operational practices and protocol factors that contribute to these
trends.  The potential impacts of these practices and protocol
properties on the scaling properties of the inter-domain routing space
are examined.  This memo provides information for the Internet
community.

3220    Perkins         Jan 2002        IP Mobility Support for IPv4

This document specifies protocol enhancements that allow transparent
routing of IP datagrams to mobile nodes in the Internet.  Each mobile
node is always identified by its home address, regardless of its current
point of attachment to the Internet.  While situated away from its home,
a mobile node is also associated with a care-of address, which provides
information about its current point of attachment to the Internet.  The
protocol provides for registering the care-of address with a home agent.
The home agent sends datagrams destined for the mobile node through a
tunnel to the care-of address.  After arriving at the end of the tunnel,
each datagram is then delivered to the mobile node.  [STANDARDS TRACK]

3219    Rosenberg       Jan 2002        Telephony Routing over IP
                                        (TRIP)

This document presents the Telephony Routing over IP (TRIP).  TRIP is a
policy driven inter-administrative domain protocol for advertising the
reachability of telephony destinations between location servers, and for
advertising attributes of the routes to those destinations.  TRIP's
operation is independent of any signaling protocol, hence TRIP can serve
as the telephony routing protocol for any signaling protocol.

3215    Boscher         Jan 2002        LDP State Machine

This document provides state machine tables for ATM (Asynchronous
Transfer Mode) switch LSRs.  In the current LDP specification, there is
no state machine specified for processing LDP messages. We think that
defining a common state machine is very important for interoperability
between different LDP and CR-LDP implementations.  This memo provides
information for the Internet community.

3214    Ash             Jan 2002        LSP Modification Using CR-LDP

This document presents an approach to modify the bandwidth and possibly
other parameters of an established CR-LSP (Constraint-based Routed Label
Switched Paths) using CR-LDP (Constraint-based Routed Label Distribution
Protocol) without service interruption.  [STANDARDS TRACK]

This memo discusses the applicability of "Extensions to RSVP (Resource
ReSerVation Protocol) for LSP Tunnels".  It highlights the protocol's
principles of operation and describes the network context for which it
was designed.  Guidelines for deployment are offered and known protocol
limitations are indicated.  This document is intended to accompany the
submission of "Extensions to RSVP for LSP Tunnels" onto the Internet
standards track.  This memo provides information for the Internet

3209    Awduche         Dec 2001        RSVP-TE: Extensions to RSVP
                                        for LSP Tunnels

This document describes the use of RSVP (Resource Reservation Protocol),
including all the necessary extensions, to establish label-switched
paths (LSPs) in MPLS (Multi-Protocol Label Switching).  Since the flow
along an LSP is completely identified by the label applied at the
ingress node of the path, these paths may be treated as tunnels.  A key
application of LSP tunnels is traffic engineering with MPLS as specified
in RFC 2702.  [STANDARDS TRACK]

3208    Speakman        Dec 2001        PGM Reliable Transport
                                        Protocol Specification

Pragmatic General Multicast (PGM) is a reliable multicast transport
protocol for applications that require ordered or unordered, duplicate-
free, multicast data delivery from multiple sources to multiple
receivers.  PGM guarantees that a receiver in the group either receives
all data packets from transmissions and repairs, or is able to detect
unrecoverable data packet loss.  PGM is specifically intended as a
workable solution for multicast applications with basic reliability
requirements.  Its central design goal is simplicity of operation with
due regard for scalability and network efficiency.  This memo defines an
Experimental Protocol for the Internet community.

                                        Layer Security

This document describes an extension to the SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer
Protocol) service that allows an SMTP server and client to use TLS
(Transport Layer Security) to provide private, authenticated
communication over the Internet.  This gives SMTP agents the ability to
protect some or all of their communications from eavesdroppers and
attackers.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
