Note to RFC Editor:
Please include the following as an IESG Note:
This document defines an Experimental protocol for the Internet community.
The IESG expects that a revised version of this protocol will be published
as Proposed Standard protocol. The Proposed Standard, when published,
is expected to change from the protocol defined in this memo.
In particular, it is expected that the standards-track version of the
protocol will incorporate strong authentication and privacy features,
and that an "ipp:" URL type will be defined which supports those security
measures. Other changes to the protocol are also possible. Implementors
are warned that future versions of this protocol may not interoperate with
the version of IPP defined in this document, or if they do interoperate,
that some protocol features may not be available.
The IESG encourages experimentation with this protocol, especially
in combination with Transport Layer Security (TLS) [RFC 2246], to help
determine how TLS may effectively be used as a security layer for IPP.
