   included in the Provisional URI Schemes sub-registry 
   maintained by the IANA.  However, the syntax and semantics
   of the scheme has been unspecified.  This document fills

RFC Editor Note

   Please add the following paragraph at the end of the
   Security Considerations:

      The telnet protocol is inherently insecure.  Those needing
      remote login access and related services are encouraged
      to use a more secure technology, such as Secure Shell
