Abstract

This document is one of a set of documents, which together describe all aspects of a new Internet Printing Protocol (IPP). IPP is an application level protocol that can be used for distributed printing using Internet tools and technologies. This document defines the rules for encoding IPP operations and IPP attributes into a new Internet mime media type called "application/ipp". This document also defines the rules for transporting over HTTP a message body whose Content-Type is "application/ipp".

IESG Note

This document defines an Experimental protocol for the Internet

community. The IESG expects that a revised version of this protocol

will be published as Proposed Standard protocol. The Proposed

Standard, when published, is expected to change from the protocol

defined in this memo. In particular, it is expected that the

standards-track version of the protocol will incorporate strong

authentication and privacy features, and that an "ipp:" URL type will

be defined which supports those security measures. Other changes to

the protocol are also possible. Implementors are warned that future

versions of this protocol may not interoperate with the version of

IPP defined in this document, or if they do interoperate, that some

protocol features may not be available.

The IESG encourages experimentation with this protocol, especially in

combination with Transport Layer Security (TLS) [RFC 2246], to help

determine how TLS may effectively be used as a security layer for

IPP.
