        Internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCSI) Protocol                              (Consolidated)


   This document describes a transport protocol for SCSI that works on    top of TCP.  The iSCSI protocol aims to be fully compliant with the    standardized SCSI Architecture Model (SAM-2).  RFC 3720 defined the    original iSCSI protocol.  RFC 3721 discusses iSCSI naming examples    and discovery techniques.  Subsequently, RFC 3980 added an additional    naming format to the iSCSI protocol.  RFC 4850 followed up by adding    a new public extension key to iSCSI.  RFC 5048 offered a number of    clarifications as well as a few improvements and corrections to the    original iSCSI protocol.

   This document obsoletes RFCs 3720, 3980, 4850, and 5048 by    consolidating them into a single document and making additional    updates to the consolidated specification.  This document also    updates RFC 3721.  The text in this document thus supersedes the text    in all the noted RFCs wherever there is a difference in semantics.
