The original iSCSI protocol [RFC3720] was built based on the [SAM2] model for SCSI. Several new features and capabilities have been added to the SCSI Architecture Model in the intervening years (at the time of publication of this document, SAM-5 was the current version of the SCSI Architecture Model). This document is not a complete revision of [RFC3720]. Instead, this document is intended as a companion document to RFC 7143; this document may also be used as a companion document to the combination of [RFC3720] and [RFC5048], although both of those RFCs have been obsoleted by [RFC7143].

             Internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCSI)                           SCSI Features Update


   Internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCSI) is a SCSI    transport protocol that maps the SCSI family of protocols onto    TCP/IP.  The iSCSI protocol as specified in RFC 7143 (and as    previously specified by the combination of RFC 3720 and RFC    5048) is based on the SAM-2 (SCSI Architecture Model - 2)    version of the SCSI family of protocols.  This document    defines enhancements to the iSCSI protocol to support certain    additional features of the SCSI protocol that were defined in    SAM-3, SAM-4, and SAM-5.

   This document is a companion document to RFC 7143.
