RFC Search

This page is about the RFC search page. Please report bugs to rfc-editor@rfc-editor.org.

A. BASIC SEARCHING

RFC Number (or Subseries Number) - search by the RFC number or the subseries number (STD, BCP, FYI). Leading zeros are ignored. The prefix is optional. Examples:

Title/Keyword - search by words in the title of the RFC or keywords of the RFC. The OR and AND operators can be used; they are not case sensitive. Quotation marks can be used for an exact phrase. Without quotes, a space between words indicates AND. Examples:

Note: Using multiple ANDs or using multiple ORs is supported; however, combining AND, OR, and double quotes is not supported currently. Examples:

B. MATCHING

Matches are always case-insensitive. The default is to search all RFCs and the STD, BCP, and FYI subseries for a match.

C. RESULTS

By default, the search results are displayed by RFC number (ascending). They can be ordered by RFC number (ascending or descending) or publication date (ascending or descending) by clicking the title of the column.

By default, the number of results shown is 25. Click 'All' to show all results.

The abstract and/or the keywords associated with each RFC entry can be displayed.

The results include the following fields:

D. REFINE RESULTS

E. KNOWN ISSUES

F. REQUESTED CHANGES
