Note Well

This site is currently under construction and still in its early stages. There is plenty if missing content and hence there are quite a few dead links.

Information is added RFC by RFC. Documents are processed in the order given on the page Relevant RFCs. Only those that have their own page in that section have been processed already (except for the last one, which is currently being processed).

Since the protocols have evolved over time, some of the information given on this site may be outdated, if not outright wrong, until all relevant RFCs have been processed. In any case, you are advised to double-check all information with the original text given in the standards documents.
