Abstract

This Addendum to the Network Service Definition Standard, ISO 8348, defines the abstract syntax and semantics of the Network Address (Network Service Access Point Address). The Network Address defined in this Addendum is the address that appears in the primitives of the connection-mode Network Service as the calling address, called address, and responding address parameters, and in the primitives of the connectionless-mode Network Service as the source address and destination address parameters.

Status of this RFC:

This document is distributed as an RFC for information only. It does

not specify a standard for the ARPA-Internet. Distribution of this

document is unlimited.

Note:

This document has been prepared by retyping the text of ISO/DP8348/DAD2

of October 1984 (also numbered SC 6/N 3444), which is currently

undergoing voting within ISO as a Draft Proposed Addendum to the

Network Service Definition. Although this RFC has been reviewed after

typing, and is believed to be substantially correct, it is possible

that typographic errors not present in the ISO document have been

overlooked.

ISO Statement on the Status of this Document.

At its meeting in Zurich, April 2-11, 1984, SC 6/WG 2 produced document

SC 6 N 3134 and, in accordance with Resolution 49 of the SC 6 meeting in

Tianjin (September 19-30, 1983), forwarded it to the SC 6 Secretariat

for registration and ballot as a first Draft Proposed Addendum to the

Network Service Definition (ISO DP 8348/DAD2).

The letter ballot on SC 6/N 3134 closed on August 20, 1984. The results

of the ballot were 10-4-0-3 [approve-disapprove-abstain-no vote]; the

summary of voting is contained in document SC 6/N 3229 (late votes are

contained in documents SC 6/N 3333 and 3360). These ballot results were

reviewed at the SC 6/WG 2 meeting in Washington, October 15-25, 1984,

and document SC 6/N 3444 was produced as a progression of SC 6/N 3134,

taking into account as many of the ballot comments as possible. The

Editor's report, contained in document SC 6/N 3445, describes the

disposition of member body comments on the DP 8348/DAD2 letter ballot.

A resolution of the SC 6 meeting in Washington, October 22-26, 1984,

instructs the SC 6 Secretariat to register document SC 6/N 3444 as a

second Draft Proposed Addendum to ISO 8348, and to circulate it for a

two-month letter ballot.
