J. Reynolds: AUTHOR [+1]
This RFC is a snapshot of the ongoing process of the assignment of protocol parameters for the Internet protocol suite. To make the current information readily available the assignments are kept up-to- date in a set of online text files. This memo is a status report on the parameters (i.e., numbers and keywords) used in protocols in the Internet community.

Status of this Memo
This memo is a status report on the parameters (i.e., numbers and keywords) used in protocols in the Internet community. Distribution of this memo is unlimited.
This RFC is a snapshot of the ongoing process of the assignment of protocol parameters for the Internet protocol suite. To make the current information readily available the assignments are kept up-to- date in a set of online text files. This RFC has been assembled by catinating these files together with a minimum of formatting "glue". The authors appologize for the somewhat rougher formatting and style than is typical of most RFCs.
We expect that various readers will notice specific items that should be corrected. Please send any specific corrections via email to <firstname.lastname@example.org>.

RFC 1700 Assigned Numbers October 1994
The files in this directory document the currently assigned values for several series of numbers used in network protocol implementations.
The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) is the central coordinator for the assignment of unique parameter values for Internet protocols. The IANA is chartered by the Internet Society (ISOC) and the Federal Network Council (FNC) to act as the clearinghouse to assign and coordinate the use of numerous Internet protocol parameters.
The Internet protocol suite, as defined by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and its steering group (the IESG), contains numerous parameters, such as internet addresses, domain names, autonomous system numbers (used in some routing protocols), protocol numbers, port numbers, management information base object identifiers, including private enterprise numbers, and many others.
The common use of the Internet protocols by the Internet community requires that the particular values used in these parameter fields be assigned uniquely. It is the task of the IANA to make those unique assignments as requested and to maintain a registry of the currently assigned values.
Requests for parameter assignments (protocols, ports, etc.) should be sent to <email@example.com>.
Requests for SNMP network management private enterprise number assignments should be sent to <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
The IANA is located at and operated by the Information Sciences Institute (ISI) of the University of Southern California (USC).
If you are developing a protocol or application that will require the use of a link, socket, port, protocol, etc., please contact the IANA to receive a number assignment.
