FYI Index

CREATED ON: Sep - 1 - 2015

o This file contains citations for all FYIs in numeric order.

o The FYIs ("For Your Information") documents form a sub-series of the RFC series, specifically those documents that may be of particular interest to Internet users. The corresponding RFCs have status INFORMATIONAL.

o FYI citations appear in this format:
Num Information
#### Title of FYI.  Author 1, Author 2, Author 3.   Issue date. (ASCII) (Obsoletes xxx) (Obsoleted by xxx) (Updates xxx) (Updated by xxx) (Also RFC ####)

- For example:
Num Information
0008 Site Security Handbook. B. Fraser. September 1997. ( TXT=191772 bytes) (Obsoletes RFC1244) (Also RFC2196)

o Key to fields:

- #### is the FYI number.
- The remainder of the fields are the same as those of the corresponding RFC, whose number is given in the final (Also RFC####) field.

- Following the FYI number are the title, the author(s), and the publication date of the RFC. Each of these is terminated by a period.

- The format and length follow in parenthesis. One or more of the following alternative formats are listed: ASCII text (TXT), PostScript (PS), and/or Adobe (PDF). Each format is followed by an equals sign and the number of bytes for that version. For example ( TXT=aaaaa, PS=bbbbbb bytes) shows that the ASCII text version is aaaaa bytes, and the PostScript version of the RFC is bbbbbb bytes.

- "Obsoletes xxxx" refers to other RFCs that this one replaces; - "Obsoleted by xxxx" refers to RFCs that have replaced this one. < - "Updates xxxx" refers to other RFCs that this one merely updates but does not replace); "Updated by xxxx" refers to RFCs that have updated (but not replaced) this one. Generally, only immediately succeeding and/or preceding RFCs are indicated, not the entire history of each related earlier or later RFC in a related series.

- FYIs may be obtained using HTTP, FTP, or email. See the RFC Editor Web page
