Abstract

   This memo obsoletes RFC 1700 (STD 2) "Assigned Numbers", which

   contained an October 1994 snapshot of assigned Internet protocol

   parameters.

Description

   From November 1977 through October 1994, the Internet Assigned

   Numbers Authority (IANA) periodically published tables of the

   Internet protocol parameter assignments in RFCs entitled, "Assigned

   Numbers".  The most current of these Assigned Numbers RFCs had

   Standard status and carried the designation: STD 2.  At this time,

   the latest STD 2 is RFC 1700.

   Since 1994, this sequence of RFCs have been replaced by an online

   database accessible through a web page (currently, www.iana.org).

   The purpose of the present RFC is to note this fact and to officially

   obsolete RFC 1700, whose status changes to Historic.  RFC 1700 is

   obsolete, and its values are incomplete and in some cases may be

   wrong.

   We expect this series to be revived in the future by the new IANA

   organization.

Security Considerations

   This memo does not affect the technical security of the Internet.
