The Role of RFC in Computer Networks

This video discusses Internet-Drafts (I-Ds) and Requests for Comments (RFCs) in the context of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). It explores the unrestricted accessibility of IETF documents and the legal guidelines governing their use and distribution. What are the roles of RFCs as live documents and permanent records? Review the specifics of document formats, translation permissions, and regulations for excerpt publication, and note the file naming conventions, various RFC categories, such as Best Current Practices and Internet Standards, and the emphasis on compatibility over strict adherence in the path to standardization.
