The Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) is an application-level protocol for distributed printing using Internet tools and technologies. IPP version 1.1 (IPP/1.1) focuses primarily on End User functionality with a few administrative operations included. IPP versions 2.0, 2.1, and 2.2 provide many new operations and are defined separately.

           Internet Printing Protocol/1.1: Model and Semantics


   The Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) is an application-level protocol    for distributed printing using Internet tools and technologies.  This    document describes a simplified model consisting of abstract objects,    attributes, and operations that is independent of encoding and    transport.  The model consists of several objects, including Printers    and Jobs.  Jobs optionally support multiple Documents.

   IPP semantics allow End Users and Operators to query Printer    capabilities; submit Print Jobs; inquire about the status of Print    Jobs and Printers; and cancel, hold, and release Print Jobs.  IPP    semantics also allow Operators to pause and resume Jobs and Printers.

   Security, internationalization, and directory issues are also    addressed by the model and semantics.  The IPP message encoding and    transport are described in "Internet Printing Protocol/1.1: Encoding    and Transport" (RFC 8010).

   This document obsoletes RFCs 2911, 3381, and 3382.
