               Network File System (NFS) Version 4 Protocol


   The Network File System (NFS) version 4 protocol is a distributed    file system protocol that builds on the heritage of NFS protocol    version 2 (RFC 1094) and version 3 (RFC 1813).  Unlike earlier    versions, the NFS version 4 protocol supports traditional file access    while integrating support for file locking and the MOUNT protocol.    In addition, support for strong security (and its negotiation),    COMPOUND operations, client caching, and internationalization has    been added.  Of course, attention has been applied to making NFS    version 4 operate well in an Internet environment.

   This document, together with the companion External Data    Representation (XDR) description document, RFC 7531, obsoletes RFC    3530 as the definition of the NFS version 4 protocol.
