Abstract Abstract
This document is one of a set of documents, which together describe all This document is one of a set of documents, which together describe all
aspects of a new Internet Printing Protocol (IPP). IPP is an aspects of a new Internet Printing Protocol (IPP). IPP is an application
application level protocol that can be used for distributed printing level protocol that can be used for distributed printing using Internet
using Internet tools and technology. The protocol is heavily influenced tools and technologies. The protocol is heavily influenced by the
by the printing model introduced in the Document Printing Application printing model introduced in the Document Printing Application (DPA)
(ISO/IEC 10175 DPA) standard [dpa]. Although DPA specifies both end [ISO10175] standard. Although DPA specifies both end user and
user and administrative features, IPP version 1.0 is focused only on end administrative features, IPP version 1.0 (IPP/1.0) focuses only on end
user functionality. user functionality.

users, operators, and administrators. The requirements document calls
out a subset of end user requirements that MUST be satisfied in the
first version of IPP. Operator and administrator requirements are out
of scope for v1.0. The model and semantics document describes a
simplified model with abstract objects, their attributes, and their
operations. The model introduces a Printer object and a Job object. The
Job object supports multiple documents per job. The protocol
specification is formal document which incorporates the ideas in all the
other documents into a concrete mapping using clearly defined data
representations and transport protocol mappings that real implementers
can use to develop interoperable client and printer (server) side
components.
This document is the ''Internet Printing Protocol/1.0: Protocol The design goals document, "Design Goals for an Internet Printing
Specification'' document. Protocol", takes a broad look at distributed printing functionality, and
it enumerates real-life scenarios that help to clarify the features that
need to be included in a printing protocol for the Internet. It
identifies requirements for three types of users: end users, operators,
and administrators. The design goals document calls out a subset of end
user requirements that are satisfied in IPP/1.0. Operator and
administrator requirements are out of scope for version 1.0. The
rationale document, "Rationale for the Structure and Model and Protocol
for the Internet Printing Protocol", describes IPP from a high level
view, defines a roadmap for the various documents that form the suite of
IPP specifications, and gives background and rationale for the IETF
working group's major decisions. The document, "Internet Printing
Protocol/1.0: Model and Semantics", describes a simplified model with
abstract objects, their attributes, and their operations. The model
introduces a Printer and a Job. The Job supports multiple documents per
Job. The model document also addresses how security,
internationalization, and directory issues are addressed. The protocol
specification, "Internet Printing Protocol/1.0: Encoding and Transport",
is a formal mapping of the abstract operations and attributes defined in
the model document onto HTTP/1.1. The protocol specification defines the
encoding rules for a new Internet media type called "application/ipp".
The "Mapping between LPD and IPP Protocols" gives some advice to
implementors of gateways between IPP and LPD (Line Printer Daemon)
implementations.
This document is the "Internet Printing Protocol/1.0: Encoding and
Transport" document.

Some attributes are encoded in a special position. These attribute are: Some operation elements are called parameters in the model document
[ipp-mod]. They MUST be encoded in a special position and they MUST NOT
appear as an operation attributes. These parameters are:
. "version-number": The parameter named "version-number" in the IPP
model document MUST become the "version-number" field in the
operation layer request or response.
Moore and Turner Expires December 30, 1998
. "operation-id": The parameter named "operation-id" in the IPP model
document MUST become the "operation-id" field in the operation
layer request.
. "status-code": The parameter named "status-code" in the IPP model
document MUST become the "status-code" field in the operation layer
response.
. "request-id": The parameter named "request-id" in the IPP model
document MUST become the "request-id" field in the operation layer
request or response.
All Printer and Job objects are identified by a Uniform Resource
Identifier (URI) [rfc1630] so that they can be persistently and
unambiguously referenced. The notion of a URI is a useful concept,
however, until the notion of URI is more stable (i.e., defined more
completely and deployed more widely), it is expected that the URIs used
for IPP objects will actually be URLs [rfc1738] [rfc1808]. Since every
URL is a specialized form of a URI, even though the more generic term
URI is used throughout the rest of this document, its usage is intended
to cover the more specific notion of URL as well.
Some operation elements are encoded twice, once as the request-URI on
the HTTP Request-Line and a second time as a REQUIRED operation
attribute in the application/ipp entity. These attributes are the
target URI for the operation:
. "printer-uri": When the target is a printer and the transport is . "printer-uri": When the target is a printer and the transport is

used in the mapping of IPP onto HTTP/1.1:
1. Although potentially redundant, a client MUST supply the target of
the operation both as an Operation and as a URI at the HTTP layer.
The rationale for this decision is to maintain a consistent set of
rules for mapping IPP to possibly many communication layers, even
where URLs are not used as the addressing mechanism.
2. Even though these two URLs might not be literally identical (one
being relative and the other being absolute), they MUST both
reference the same IPP object.
Moore and Turner Expires December 30, 1998
3. The URI in the HTTP layer is either relative or absolute and is
used by the HTTP server to route the HTTP request to the correct
resource relative to that HTTP server. The HTTP server need not be
aware of the URI within the operation request.
4. Once the HTTP server resource begins to process the HTTP request,
it might get the reference to the appropriate IPP Printer object
from either the HTTP URI (using to the context of the HTTP server
for relative URLs) or from the URI within the operation request;
the choice is up to the implementation.
5. HTTP URIs can be relative or absolute, but the target URI in the
operation MUST be an absolute URI

10. Appendix B: Hints to implementors using IPP with SSL3
WARNING: Clients and IPP objects using intermediate secure connection
protocol solutions such as IPP in combination with Secure Socket Layer
Version 3 (SSL3), which are developed in advance of IPP and TLS
standardization, might not be interoperable with IPP and TLS standards-
conforming clients and IPP objects.
An assumption is that the URI for a secure IPP Printer object has been
found by means outside the IPP printing protocol, via a directory
service, web site or other means.
IPP provides a transparent connection to SSL by calling the
corresponding URL (a https URI connects by default to port 443).
However, the following functions can be provided to ease the integration
of IPP with SSL during implementation.
connect (URI), returns a status.
"connect" makes an https call and returns the immediate status of
the connection as returned by SSL to the user. The status values are
explained in section 5.4.2 of the SSL document [ssl].
A session-id may also be retained to later resume a session. The SSL
handshake protocol may also require the cipher specifications
supported by the client, key length of the ciphers, compression
methods, certificates, etc. These should be sent to the server and
hence should be available to the IPP client (although as part of
administration features).
disconnect (session)
to disconnect a particular session.
The session-id available from the "connect" could be used.
resume (session)
to reconnect using a previous session-id.
The availability of this information as administration features are left
for implementors, and need not be standardized at this time
