Understanding our documents

  • Internet-Drafts
  • Request for Comments (RFCs)
  • Working Groups


Internet-Drafts are working documents of the IETF, its areas, and its working groups. During the development of a specification, draft versions of the document are made available for informal review and comment by placing them in the IETF's Internet-Draft format.

Request for Comments (RFCs)

The IETF publishes RFCs authored by network operators, engineers and computer scientists to document methods, behaviors, research, or innovations applicable to the Internet.

Working groups

Working Groups are the primary mechanism for development of IETF specifications and guidelines. Working Groups are typically created to address a specific problem or to produce one or more specific deliverables (a guideline, standards specification, etc.).
