Internet standards (STDs), Requests for Comments (RFCs), Best Current Practices (BCPs), and maybe an occasional Internet-Draft, all defining and directly related to TCP. RFCs TCP Transport Layer Protocols Internet Computers.
An RFC is authored by engineers and computer scientists in the form of a memorandum describing methods, behaviors, research, or innovations applicable to the working of the Internet and Internet-connected systems. (wikipedia)
- Wikipedia: A Request for Comments, in the context of Internet governance, is a type of publication from the Internet Engineering Task Force and the Internet Society, the principal technical development and standards-setting bodies for the Internet.
