     IANA Considerations and IETF Protocol and Documentation Usage
                        for IEEE 802 Parameters
                   <draft-eastlake-rfc7042bis-01.txt>

Abstract

   Some IETF protocols make use of Ethernet frame formats and IEEE 802
   parameters.  This document discusses several uses of such parameters
   in IETF protocols, specifies IANA considerations for assignment of
   points under the IANA OUI (Organizationally Unique Identifier), and
   provides some values for use in documentation.  This document
   obsoletes RFC 7042.

Status of This Memo

   This Internet-Draft is submitted to IETF in full conformance with the
   provisions of BCP 78 and BCP 79.

   Distribution of this document is unlimited. Comments should be sent
   to the authors.

   Internet-Drafts are working documents of the Internet Engineering
   Task Force (IETF), its areas, and its working groups.  Note that
   other groups may also distribute working documents as Internet-
   Drafts.

   Internet-Drafts are draft documents valid for a maximum of six months
   and may be updated, replaced, or obsoleted by other documents at any
   time.  It is inappropriate to use Internet-Drafts as reference
   material or to cite them other than as "work in progress."
