RFC 1800 Internet Official Protocol Standards
 
Authors:J. Postel, Ed..
Date:July 1995
Formats:txt pdf
Obsoletes:RFC 1780
Obsoleted by:RFC 1880
Status:HISTORIC
DOI:10.17487/RFC 1800

RFC 1801 MHS use of the X.500 Directory to support MHS Routing
 
Authors:S. Kille.
Date:June 1995
Formats:txt pdf
Status:EXPERIMENTAL
DOI:10.17487/RFC 1801
The key problem in routing is to map from an O/R Address onto an MTA (next hop). This shall be an MTA which in some sense is "nearer" to the destination UA. This is done repeatedly until the message can be directly delivered to the recipient UA. This memo defines an Experimental Protocol for the Internet community.
 
RFC 1802 Introducing Project Long Bud: Internet Pilot Project for the Deployment of X.500 Directory Information in Support of X.400 Routing
 
Authors:H. Alvestrand, K. Jordan, S. Langlois, J. Romaguera.
Date:June 1995
Formats:txt pdf
Status:INFORMATIONAL
DOI:10.17487/RFC 1802
The Internet X.400 community (i.e., GO-MHS) currently lacks a distributed mechanism providing dynamic updating and management of message routing information. The IETF MHS-DS Working Group has specified an approach for X.400 Message Handling Systems to perform message routing using OSI Directory Services. The MHS-DS approach has been successfully tested in a number of local environments.

This memo describes a proposed Internet Pilot Project that seeks to prove the MHS-DS approach on a larger scale. The results of this pilot will then be used to draw up recommendations for a global deployment.

 
RFC 1803 Recommendations for an X.500 Production Directory Service
 
Authors:R. Wright, A. Getchell, T. Howes, S. Sataluri, P. Yee, W. Yeong.
Date:June 1995
Formats:txt pdf
Status:INFORMATIONAL
DOI:10.17487/RFC 1803
This document contains a set of basic recommendations for a country- level X.500 DSA. These recommendations can only be considered a starting point in the quest to create a global production qualityX.500 infrastructure. For there to be a true "production quality"X.500 infrastructure more work must be done, including a transition from the 1988 X.500 (plus some Internet extensions) to the 1993 X.500 standard (including the '93 replication and knowledge model). This document does not discuss this transition.
 
RFC 1804 Schema Publishing in X.500 Directory
 
Authors:G. Mansfield, P. Rajeev, S. Raghavan, T. Howes.
Date:June 1995
Formats:txt pdf
Status:EXPERIMENTAL
DOI:10.17487/RFC 1804
The X.500 directory provides a powerful mechanism for storing and retrieving information about objects of interest. To interpret the information stored in the directory, the schema must be known to all the components of the directory. Presently, there are no means other than ftp to distribute schema information across the Internet. This is proving to be a severe constraint as the Directory is growing.This document presents a solution to the schema distribution problem using the existing mechanisms of the directory. A naming scheme for naming schema objects and a meta-schema for storing schema objects is presented. The procedures for fetching unknown schema from the directory at runtime are described.
 
RFC 1805 Location-Independent Data/Software Integrity Protocol
 
Authors:A. Rubin.
Date:June 1995
Formats:txt pdf
Status:INFORMATIONAL
DOI:10.17487/RFC 1805
This memo describes a protocol for adding integrity assurance to files that are distributed across the Internet. This protocol is intended for the distribution of software, data, documents, and any other file that is subject to malicious modification. The protocol described here is intended to provide assurances of integrity and time. A trusted third party is required.
 
RFC 1806 Communicating Presentation Information in Internet Messages: The Content-Disposition Header
 
Authors:R. Troost, S. Dorner.
Date:June 1995
Formats:txt pdf
Obsoleted by:RFC 2183
Status:EXPERIMENTAL
DOI:10.17487/RFC 1806
This memo provides a mechanism whereby messages conforming to the[RFC 1521] ("MIME") specification can convey presentational information. It specifies a new "Content-Disposition" header, optional and valid for any [RFC 1521] entity ("message" or "body part"). Two values for this header are described in this memo; one for the ordinary linear presentation of the body part, and another to facilitate the use of mail to transfer files. It is expected that more values will be defined in the future, and procedures are defined for extending this set of values.

This document is intended as an extension to [RFC 1521]. As such, the reader is assumed to be familiar with [RFC 1521], and [RFC 822]. The information presented herein supplements but does not replace that found in those documents.

RFC 1808 Relative Uniform Resource Locators
 
Authors:R. Fielding.
Date:June 1995
Formats:txt pdf
Obsoleted by:RFC 3986
Updates:RFC 1738
Updated by:RFC 2368, RFC 2396
Status:PROPOSED STANDARD
DOI:10.17487/RFC 1808
A Uniform Resource Locator (URL) is a compact representation of the location and access method for a resource available via the Internet.When embedded within a base document, a URL in its absolute form may contain a great deal of information which is already known from the context of that base document's retrieval, including the scheme, network location, and parts of the url-path. In situations where the base URL is well-defined and known to the parser (human or machine), it is useful to be able to embed URL references which inherit that context rather than re-specifying it in every instance. This document defines the syntax and semantics for such Relative UniformResource Locators.
 
RFC 1809 Using the Flow Label Field in IPv6
 
Authors:C. Partridge.
Date:June 1995

RFC 1810 Report on MD5 Performance
 
Authors:J. Touch.
Date:June 1995
Formats:txt pdf
Status:INFORMATIONAL
DOI:10.17487/RFC 1810
MD5 is an authentication algorithm, which has been proposed as the default authentication option in IPv6. When enabled, the MD5 algorithm operates over the entire data packet, including header.This RFC addresses how fast MD5 can be implemented in software and hardware, and whether it supports currently available IP bandwidth.MD5 can be implemented in existing hardware technology at 256 Mbps, and in software at 87 Mbps. These rates cannot support current IP rates, e.g., 100 Mbps TCP and 130 Mbps UDP over ATM. If MD5 cannot support existing network bandwidth using existing technology, it will not scale as network speeds increase in the future. This RFC is intended to alert the IP community about the performance limitations of MD5, and to suggest that alternatives be considered for use in high speed IP implementations.
 
RFC 1811 U.S
 
Authors:Government Internet Domain Names. Federal Networking Council.
Date:June 1995
Formats:txt pdf
Obsoleted by:RFC 1816
Status:INFORMATIONAL
DOI:10.17487/RFC 1811
This document describes the registration policies for the top-level domain ".GOV". Thus far, Federal Agencies and their subsidiaries have registered without any guidance. This has resulted in multiple registrations for Federal Agencies and naming schemes that do not facilitate responsiveness to the public. This document fixes this by restricting registrations to coincide with the approved structure of the US government. The document cited, FIPS 95-1, provides a standard recognized structure into which domain registrations for top-level domains. The IANA requires that an organization/country apply for and get a 2 letter code from ISO/ITU (e.g., US for UnitedStates) for additional top-level registration.

As a side effect, this reduces the number of .GOV level registrations and reduces the workload on the Internic.

RFC 1814 Unique Addresses are Good
 
Authors:E. Gerich.
Date:June 1995
Formats:txt pdf
Status:INFORMATIONAL
DOI:10.17487/RFC 1814
The IAB suggests that while RFC 1597 establishes reserved IP address space for the use of private networks which are isolated and will remain isolated from the Internet, any enterprise which anticipates external connectivity to the Internet should apply for a globally unique address from an Internet registry or service provider.
 
RFC 1815 Character Sets ISO-10646 and ISO-10646-J-1
 
Authors:M. Ohta.
Date:July 1995
Formats:txt pdf
Status:INFORMATIONAL
DOI:10.17487/RFC 1815
Though the ISO character set standard of ISO 10646 is specified reasonably well about European characters, it is not so useful in an fully internationalized environment.

For the practical use of ISO 10646, a lot of external profiling such as restriction of characters, restriction of combination of characters and addition of language information is necessary.

This memo provides information on such profiling, along with charset names to each profiled instance.

Though all the effort is done to make the resulting charset as useful10646 based charset as possible, the result is not so good. So, the charsets defined in this memo are only for reference purpose and its use for practical purpose is strongly discouraged.

 
RFC 1816 U.S
 
Authors:Government Internet Domain Names. Federal Networking Council.
Date:August 1995
Formats:txt pdf
Obsoletes:RFC 1811
Obsoleted by:RFC 2146
Status:INFORMATIONAL
DOI:10.17487/RFC 1816
This memo provides an update and clarification to RFC 1811. This document describes the registration policies for the top-level domain".GOV". Thus far, Federal Agencies and their subsidiaries have registered without any guidance. This has resulted in multiple registrations for Federal Agencies and naming schemes that do not facilitate responsiveness to the public. This document fixes this by restricting registrations to coincide with the approved structure of the US government. The document cited, FIPS 95-1, provides a standard recognized structure into which domain registrations for.GOV can be fit. This policy is exactly comparable to that for the top-level domains. The IANA requires that an organization/country apply for and get a 2 letter code from ISO/ITU (e.g., US for UnitedStates) for additional top-level registration.

As a side effect, this reduces the number of .GOV level registrations and reduces the workload on the Internic.

RFC 1842 ASCII Printable Characters-Based Chinese Character Encoding for Internet Messages
 
Authors:Y. Wei, Y. Zhang, J. Li, J. Ding, Y. Jiang.
Date:August 1995
Formats:txt pdf
Status:INFORMATIONAL
DOI:10.17487/RFC 1842
This document describes the encoding used in electronic mail [RFC822] and network news [RFC1036] messages over the Internet. The 7-bit representation of GB 2312 Chinese text was specified by Fung Fung Lee of Stanford University [Lee89] and implemented in various software packages under different platforms (see appendix for a partial list of the available software packages that support this encoding method). It is further tested and used in the usenet newsgroups alt.chinese.text and chinese.* as well as various other network forums with considerable success. Future extensions of this encoding method can accommodate additional GB character sets and other east asian language character sets [Wei94].

The name given to this encoding is "HZ-GB-2312", which is intended to be used in the "charset" parameter field of MIME headers (see [MIME1] and [MIME2]).

RFC 1847 Security Multiparts for MIME: Multipart/Signed and Multipart/Encrypted
 
Authors:J. Galvin, S. Murphy, S. Crocker, N. Freed.
Date:October 1995
Formats:txt pdf
Status:PROPOSED STANDARD
DOI:10.17487/RFC 1847
This document defines a framework within which security services may be applied to MIME body parts. MIME, an acronym for "MultipurposeInternet Mail Extensions", defines the format of the contents ofInternet mail messages and provides for multi-part textual and non- textual message bodies. The new content types are subtypes of multipart: signed and encrypted. Each will contain two body parts: one for the protected data and one for the control information necessary to remove the protection. The type and contents of the control information body parts are determined by the value of the protocol parameter of the enclosing multipart/signed or multipart/encrypted content type, which is required to be present.
 
RFC 1848 MIME Object Security Services
 
Authors:S. Crocker, N. Freed, J. Galvin, S. Murphy.
Date:October 1995
Formats:txt pdf
Status:HISTORIC
DOI:10.17487/RFC 1848
This document defines MIME Object Security Services (MOSS), a protocol that uses the multipart/signed and multipart/encrypted framework [7] to apply digital signature and encryption services toMIME objects. The services are offered through the use of end-to-end cryptography between an originator and a recipient at the application layer. Asymmetric (public key) cryptography is used in support of the digital signature service and encryption key management.Symmetric (secret key) cryptography is used in support of the encryption service. The procedures are intended to be compatible with a wide range of public key management approaches, including both ad hoc and certificate-based schemes. Mechanisms are provided to support many public key management approaches.
 
RFC 1849 "Son of 1036": News Article Format and Transmission
 
Authors:H. Spencer.
Date:March 2010
Formats:txt pdf
Obsoleted by:RFC 5536, RFC 5537
Status:HISTORIC
DOI:10.17487/RFC 1849
By the early 1990s, it had become clear that RFC 1036, then the specification for the Interchange of USENET Messages, was badly in need of repair. This "Internet-Draft-to-be", though never formally published at that time, was widely circulated and became the de facto standard for implementors of News Servers and User Agents, rapidly acquiring the nickname "Son of 1036". Indeed, under that name, it could fairly be described as the best-known Internet Draft (n)ever published, and it formed the starting point for the recently adoptedProposed Standards for Netnews.

It is being published now in order to provide the historical background out of which those standards have grown. Present-day implementors should be aware that it is NOT NOW APPROPRIATE for use in current implementations.

Obsoletes:RFC 1645
Status:INFORMATIONAL
DOI:10.17487/RFC 1861
This RFC suggests a simple way for delivering wireless messages, both one and two-way, to appropriate receiving devices. In its simplest form, SNPP provides a simple way to implement a "shim" between theInternet and a TAP/IXO paging terminal. In its level 3 form, it provides an easy-to-use (and build) method for communicating and receiving end-to-end acknowledgments and replies from two-way messaging devices (such as ReFLEX units).

Gateways supporting this protocol, as well as SMTP, have been in use for well over a year at several commercial paging companies, and private businesses. Client software supporting this protocol has become widespread, and is being integrated into many of the new paging and messaging products being built. In addition to commercial software, email filters and SNPP client software for Unix and Windows(WikiPage) are available at no cost. Please contact the author for more information.

Earlier versions of this specification were reviewed by IESG members and the "822 Extensions" Working Group. They preferred an alternate strategy, as discussed under "Relationship to Other IETF Work", below.

The Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) is a simple markup language used to create hypertext documents that are platform independent. HTML documents are SGML documents with generic semantics that are appropriate for representing information from a wide range of domains. HTML markup can represent hypertext news, mail, documentation, and hypermedia; menus of options; database query results; simple structured documents with in-lined graphics; and hypertext views of existing bodies of information.

HTML has been in use by the World Wide Web (WWW) global information initiative since 1990. This specification roughly corresponds to the capabilities of HTML in common use prior to June 1994. HTML is an application of ISO Standard 8879:1986 Information Processing Text andOffice Systems; Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML).

The "text/html" Internet Media Type (RFC 1590) and MIME Content Type(RFC 1521) is defined by this specification.

Formats:txt pdf
Status:EXPERIMENTAL
DOI:10.17487/RFC 1873
When using MIME [MIME] to encapsulate a structured object that consist of many elements, for example an SGML [SGML] document, a single element may occur several times. An encapsulation normally maps each of the structured objects elements to a MIME entity. It is useful to include elements that occur multiple time exactly once. To accomplish that and to preserve the object structure it is desirable to unambiguously refer to another body part of the same message.

The existing MIME Content-Type Message/External-Body access-types allow a MIME entity (body-part) to refer to an object that is not in the message by specifying how to access that object. The Content-ID access method described in this document provides the capability to refer to an object within the message.

This memorandum describes RTP, the real-time transport protocol. RTP provides end-to-end network transport functions suitable for applications transmitting real-time data, such as audio, video or simulation data, over multicast or unicast network services. RTP does not address resource reservation and does not guarantee quality-of- service for real-time services. The data transport is augmented by a control protocol (RTCP) to allow monitoring of the data delivery in a manner scalable to large multicast networks, and to provide minimal control and identification functionality. RTP and RTCP are designed to be independent of the underlying transport and network layers. The protocol supports the use of RTP-level translators and mixers.

Obsoleted by:RFC 3464
Updated by:RFC 2852
Status:PROPOSED STANDARD
DOI:10.17487/RFC 1894
This memo defines a MIME content-type that may be used by a message transfer agent (MTA) or electronic mail gateway to report the result of an attempt to deliver a message to one or more recipients. This content-type is intended as a machine-processable replacement for the various types of delivery status notifications currently used inInternet electronic mail.

Because many messages are sent between the Internet and other messaging systems (such as X.400 or the so-called "LAN-based" systems), the DSN protocol is designed to be useful in a multi- protocol messaging environment. To this end, the protocol described in this memo provides for the carriage of "foreign" addresses and error codes, in addition to those normally used in Internet mail.Additional attributes may also be defined to support "tunneling" of foreign notifications through Internet mail.

Any questions, comments, and reports of defects or ambiguities in this specification may be sent to the mailing list for the NOTARY working group of the IETF, using the address<notifications@cs.utk.edu&rt;. Requests to subscribe to the mailing list should be addressed to <notifications-request@cs.utk.edu&rt;.Implementors of this specification are encouraged to subscribe to the mailing list, so that they will quickly be informed of any problems which might hinder interoperability.

NOTE: This document is a Proposed Standard. If and when this protocol is submitted for Draft Standard status, any normative text(phrases containing SHOULD, SHOULD NOT, MUST, MUST NOT, or MAY) in this document will be re-evaluated in light of implementation experience, and are thus subject to change.
