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 technology, is a type of publication from the Internet technical community, including the Internet Engineering Task Force, the principal technical development and standards-setting bodies for the Internet. RFCs may also come from the Internet Research Task Force, the Internet Architecture Board or independent authors. The RFC system is supported by the Internet Society.

- Internet Experiment Note - An Internet Experiment Note is a sequentially numbered document in a series of technical publications issued by the participants of the early development work groups that created the precursors of the modern Internet.
- Best Current Practice - A Best Current Practice is a de facto level of performance in engineering and information technology. It is more flexible than a standard, since techniques and tools are continually evolving.
