2296    Holtman         Mar 1998        HTTP Remote Variant Selection
                                        Algorithm -- RVSA/1.0

HTTP allows web site authors to put multiple versions of the same
information under a single URL.  Transparent content negotiation is a
mechanism for automatically selecting the best version when the URL is
accessed.  A remote variant selection algorithm can be used to speed up
the transparent negotiation process. This document defines the remote
variant selection algorithm with the version number 1.0.  This memo
defines an Experimental Protocol for the Internet community.  It does
not specify an Internet standard of any kind.  Discussion and
suggestions for improvement are requested.

                                        Negotiation in HTTP

HTTP allows web site authors to put multiple versions of the same
information under a single URL.  Transparent content negotiation is an
extensible negotiation mechanism, layered on top of HTTP, for
automatically selecting the best version when the URL is accessed.  This
enables the smooth deployment of new web data formats and markup tags.

                                        Subtrees in the X.500 Directory

This document defines techniques for representing two types of
information mapping in the OSI Directory: Mapping from a key to a value
(or set of values), as might be done in a table lookup, and mapping from
a distinguished name to an associated value (or values), where the
values are not defined by the owner of the entry.  This is achieved by
use of a directory subtree.  [STANDARDS-TRCK]


2292    Stevens         Feb 1998        Advanced Sockets API for IPv6

API that are required for applications to take advantage of additional
features of IPv6.  This memo provides information for the Internet
community.  It does not specify an Internet standard of any kind.

                                        Protocol for the World Wide Web

This document presents a list of features in the form of requirements
for a Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning protocol which, if
implemented, would improve the efficiency of common remote editing
operations, provide a locking mechanism to prevent overwrite conflicts,
improve link management support between non-HTML data types, provide a
simple attribute-value metadata facility, provide for the creation and
reading of container data types, and integrate versioning into the WWW.

specify an Internet standard of any kind.


2290    Solomon         Feb 1998        Mobile-IPv4 Configuration
                                        Option for PPP IPCP

Mobile IP [RFC 2002] defines media-independent procedures by which a
Mobile Node can maintain existing transport and application-layer
connections despite changing its point-of-attachment to the Internet and
without changing its IP address.  PPP [RFC 1661] provides a standard
method for transporting multi-protocol packets over point-to-point
links.  As currently specified, Mobile IP Foreign Agents which support
Mobile Node connections via PPP can do so only by first assigning unique
addresses to those Mobile Nodes, defeating one of the primary advantages
of Foreign Agents.  This documents corrects this problem by defining the
Mobile-IPv4 Configuration Option to the Internet Protocol Control
Protocol (IPCP) [RFC 1332].  Using this option, two peers can

Familiarity with Mobile IP [RFC 2002], IPCP [RFC 1332], and PPP [RFC
1661] is assumed.  [STANDARDS-TRACK]

                                        LAN Switching Devices

This document is intended to provide terminology for the benchmarking of
local area network (LAN) switching devices.  It extends the terminology
already defined for benchmarking network interconnect devices in RFCs
1242 and 1944 to switching devices.  This memo provides information for
the Internet community.  It does not specify an Internet standard of any

                                        Protocol (EAP)

The Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) provides a standard method for
transporting multi-protocol datagrams over point-to-point links.  PPP
also defines an extensible Link Control Protocol, which allows
negotiation of an Authentication Protocol for authenticating its peer
before allowing Network Layer protocols to transmit over the link.  This
document defines the PPP Extensible Authentication Protocol.

2283    Bates           Feb 1998        Multiprotocol Extensions for
                                        BGP-4

This document defines extensions to BGP-4 to enable it to carry routing
information for multiple Network Layer protocols (e.g., IPv6, IPX,
etc...). The extensions are backward compatible - a router that supports
the extensions can interoperate with a router that doesn't support the
extensions.  [STANDARDS-TRACK]

                                        Protocol (HSRP)

The memo specifies the Hot Standby Router Protocol (HSRP).  The goal of
the protocol is to allow hosts to appear to use a single router and to
maintain connectivity even if the actual first hop router they are using
fails.  This memo provides information for the Internet community.  It
does not specify an Internet standard of any kind.


2280    Alaettinoglu    Jan 1998        Routing Policy Specification
                                        Language (RPSL)

This memo is the reference document for the Routing Policy Specification
Language (RPSL). RPSL allows a network operator to be able to specify
routing policies at various levels in the Internet hierarchy; for
example at the Autonomous System (AS) level.  At the same time, policies
can be specified with sufficient detail in RPSL so that low level router
configurations can be generated from them.  RPSL is extensible; new
routing protocols and new protocol features can be introduced at any
time.  [STANDARDS-TRACK]

UTF-8, the object of this memo, has the characteristic of preserving the
full US-ASCII range, providing compatibility with file systems, parsers
and other software that rely on US-ASCII values but are transparent to
other values. This memo updates and replaces RFC 2044, in particular
addressing the question of versions of the relevant standards.

                                        Registration Procedures

MIME [RFC-2045, RFC-2046, RFC-2047, RFC-2184] and various other modern
Internet protocols are capable of using many different charsets. This in
turn means that the ability to label different charsets is essential.
This registration procedure exists solely to associate a specific name
or names with a given charset and to give an indication of whether or
not a given charset can be used in MIME text objects.  This document
specifies an Internet Best Current Practices for the Internet Community,
and requests discussion and suggestions for improvements.

This document addresses the issues of the discovery of URN (Uniform
Resource Name) resolver services that in turn will directly translate
URNs into URLs (Uniform Resource Locators) and URCs (Uniform Resource
Characteristics).  This memo provides information for the Internet

                                        Homed to a Single Provider

With the increased growth of the Internet, the number of customers using
BGP4 has grown significantly. RFC1930 outlines a set of guidelines for
when one needs and should use an AS. However, the customer and service
provider (ISP) are left with a problem as a result of this in that while
there is no need for an allocated AS under the guidelines, certain
conditions make the use of BGP4 a very pragmatic and perhaps only way to
connect a customer homed to a single ISP.  This paper proposes a
solution to this problem in line with recommendations set forth in
RFC1930.  This memo provides information for the Internet community.  It
does not specify an Internet standard of any kind.

                                        Services

It has become a common practice to use symbolic names (usually CNAMEs)
in the Domain Name Service (DNS - [RFC-1034, RFC-1035]) to refer to
network services such as anonymous FTP [RFC-959] servers, Gopher [RFC-

This is desirable for a number of reasons.  It provides a way of moving
services from one machine to another transparently, and a mechanism by
which people or agents may programmatically discover that an
organization runs, say, a World-Wide Web server.  Although this approach
has been almost universally adopted, there is no standards document or
similar specification for these commonly used names.  This document
