Abstract

The DTNRG Research Group has defined the Licklider Transmission Protocol (LTP) [RFC5326]. LTP contains certain fields that are subject to a registry. For the purpose of its research work, the group has created ad hoc registries. As the specifications are stable and have multiple interoperable implementations, the group would like to hand off the registries to IANA for official management. This document describes the actions that IANA needs to take and uses the well-known IANA policy definitions as described in Section 4.1 of [RFC5226].

Abstract

   The DTNRG Research Group has defined the experimental Licklider    Transmission Protocol (LTP) and the Compressed Bundle Header Encoding    (CBHE) mechanism for the InterPlanetary Network ('ipn' URI scheme).    Moreover, RFC 5050 defines values for the Bundle Protocol    administrative record type.  All of these fields are subject to a    registry.  For the purpose of its research work, the group has    created ad hoc registries.  As the specifications are stable and have    multiple interoperable implementations, the group would like to hand    off the registries to IANA for official management.  This document    describes the necessary IANA actions.
