An appendix to this document includes a machine processable version of the schema.

This document also proposes a mechanism for allowing the schema to evolve in line with emerging requirements. Proformas to support this process are included.

Status:INFORMATIONAL
DOI:10.17487/RFC 1275
This RFCconsiders certain deficiencies of the 1988 X.500 standard, which need to be addressed before an effective openInternet Directory can be established using these protocols and services [CCI88]. The only areas considered are primary problems, to which solutions must be found before a pilot can be deployed. This RFCconcerns itself with deficiencies which can only be addressed by use of additional protocol or procedures for distributed operation.
 
RFC 1276 Replication and Distributed Operations extensions to provide an Internet Directory using X.500
 
Authors:S.E. Hardcastle-Kille.
Date:November 1991

Status:HISTORIC
DOI:10.17487/RFC 1276
Some requirements on extensions to X.500 are described in theRFC[HK91b], in order to build an Internet Directory usingX.500(1988). This document specifies a set of solutions to the problems raised. These solutions are based on some work done for the QUIPU implementation, and demonstrated to be effective in a number of directory pilots. By documenting a de facto standard, rapid progress can be made towards a full-scale pilot. These procedures are an INTERIM approach. There are known deficiencies, both in terms of manageability and scalability.Transition to standard approaches are planned when appropriate standards are available. This RFCwill be obsoleted at this point.
 
RFC 1277 Encoding Network Addresses to Support Operation over Non-OSI Lower Layers
 
Authors:S.E. Hardcastle-Kille.
Date:November 1991
Formats:txt ps pdf
Status:PROPOSED STANDARD
DOI:10.17487/RFC 1277
The OSI Directory specifies an encoding of Presentation Address, which utilises OSI Network Addresses as defined in the OSINetwork Layer standards [CCI88] [ISO87a]. The OSI Directory, and any OSI application utilising the OSI Directory must be able use these Network Addresses to identify end systems. Currently, OSI applications are often run over lower layers other than the OSINetwork Service. It is neither reasonable nor desirable for groups wishing to investigate and use OSI Applications in conjunction with the OSI Directory to be dependent on a globalOSI Network Service. This document defines a new network address format, and rules for using some existing network address formats. The scope of this document is:

DOI:10.17487/RFC 1279
This RFCconsiders X.500 in relation to Internet and UK Domains.A basic model of X.500 providing a higher level and more descriptive naming structure is emphasised. In addition, a mapping of domains onto X.500 is proposed, which gives a range of new management and user facilities over and above those currently available. This specification proposes an experimental new mechanism to access and manage domain information on the Internet and in the UK Academic Community.

There is a wealth of information on the network. In fact, so much information, that you could spend your entire life browsing. This paper will present some of the "gold nuggets" of information and file repositories on the network that could be of use to end users.

The ultimate goal is to make the route to these sources of information invisible to the user. At present, this is not easy to do. I will explain some of the techniques that can be used to make these nuggets easier to pick up so that we can all be richer.

 
RFC 1291 Mid-Level Networks Potential Technical Services
 
Authors:V. Aggarwal.

Formats:txt ps pdf
Status:INFORMATIONAL
DOI:10.17487/RFC 1291
This document proposes a set of technical services that each Internet mid-level network can offer within the mid-level network itself and and to its peer networks. The term "mid-level" is used as a generic term to represent all regional and similar networks, which, due to continuous evolutions and transitions, can no longer be termed"regional" [MAN]. It discusses the pros and cons of offering these services, as well as areas in which mid-level networks can work together.

A large portion of the ideas stem from discussions at the IETFOperational Statistics (OPstat), User Connectivity Problems (UCP) andNetwork Joint Management (NJM) working groups.

To address significant security and privacy issues, the North American Directory Forum introduces the following "User Bill of Rights" for entries in thePublic Directory. As a user, you have:

I. The right not to be listed.

II. The right to have you or your agent informed when your entry is created.

III. The right to examine your entry.

IV. The right to correct inaccurate information in your entry.

V. The right to remove specific information from your entry.

VI. The right to be assured that your listing in thePublic Directory will comply with US or Canadian law regulating privacy or access information.

VII. The right to expect timely fulfillment of these rights.

RFC 1297 NOC Internal Integrated Trouble Ticket System Functional Specification Wishlist ("NOC TT REQUIREMENTS")
 
Authors:D. Johnson.
Date:January 1992
Formats:txt pdf
Status:INFORMATIONAL
DOI:10.17487/RFC 1297
Professional quality handling of network problems requires some kind of problem tracking system, herein referred to as a "trouble ticket" system. A basic trouble ticket system acts like a hospital chart, coordinating the work of multiple people who may need to work on the problem.

Once the basic trouble ticket system is in place, however, there are many extensions that can aid Network Operations efficiency.Information in the tickets can be used to produce statistical reports. Operator efficiency and accuracy may be increased by automating trouble ticket entry with information from the networkAlert system. The Alert system may be used to monitor trouble ticket progress. Trouble tickets may be also used to communicate network health information between NOCs, to telcom vendors, and to other internal sales and engineering audiences.

This document explores competing uses, architectures, and desirable features of integrated internal trouble ticket systems for Network and other Operations Centers.
