Requests for Comments (RFCs)

Each of the Internet protocols that we discuss in this book is defined in an RFC document—a formal protocol specification. RFCs are published by the RFC Editor (http://www.rfc-editor.org/), which is funded by the Internet Society (http://www.isoc.org/). RFCs that describe Internet standards are developed under the auspices of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF, http://www.ietf.org/), a community of network designers, operators, vendors, and researchers concerned with the evolution and smooth operation of the Internet.
