This memo.

1498    Saltzer      Aug 93   On the Naming and Binding of Network

This brief paper offers a perspective on the subject of names of
destinations in data communication networks. It suggests two ideas:
First, it is helpful to distinguish among four different kinds of
objects that may be named as the destination of a packet in a network.
Second, the operating system concept of binding is a useful way to
describe the relations among the four kinds of objects.  This memo
provides information for the Internet community.  It does not specify an
Internet standard.

1497    Reynolds     Aug 93   BOOTP Vendor Information Extensions

This RFC is a slight revision and extension of RFC-1048 by Philip
Prindeville, who should be credited with the original work in this memo.
This memo is a status report on the vendor information extensions used
in the Bootstrap Protocol (BOOTP).

1496    Alverstrand  Aug 93   Rules for Downgrading Messages from
                              X.400/88 to X.400/84 When MIME
                              Content-Types are Present in the

This document describes how RFC-1328 must be modified in order to
provide adequate support for the scenarios:

                    SMTP(MIME) -> X.400(84)
                    X.400(84) -> SMTP(MIME)

It replaces chapter 6 of RFC-1328. The rest of RFC-1328 is NOT
obsoleted.  [STANDARDS-TRACK]

1495    Alverstrand  Aug 93   Mapping between X.400 and RFC-822
                              Message Bodies

Since the introduction of X.400(84), there has been work ongoing for
defining mappings between MHS and RFC-822.  The most recent work in this
area is RFC-1327 [3], which focuses primarily on translation of envelope
and headers.  This document is complimentary to RFC-1327 as it focuses
on translation of the message body.  [STANDARDS-TRACK]

1494    Alverstrand  Aug 93   Equivalences between 1988 X.400 and
                              RFC-822 Message Bodies

This document describes the content of the "IANA MHS/MIME Equivalence
table", and defines the initial configuration of this table.  Mappings
for new MIME content-types and/or X.400 body part types should be
registered with the IANA to minimize redundancy and promote
interoperability. [STANDARDS-TRACK]

1493    Decker       Jul 93   Definitions of Managed Objects
                              for Bridges

This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB) for
use with network management protocols in TCP/IP based internets.  In
particular it defines objects for managing MAC bridges based on the IEEE
802.1D-1990 standard between Local Area Network (LAN) segments.

                              Called TACACS

This RFC documents the extended TACACS protocol use by the Cisco Systems
terminal servers.  This same protocol is used by the University of
Minnesota's distributed authentication system.  This memo provides

1491    Weider       Jul 93   A Survey of Advanced Usages of X.500

This document is the result of a survey asking people to detail their
advanced usages of X.500. It is intended to show how various
organizations are using X.500 in ways which extend the view of X.500 as
a "White Pages" service.  This RFC is a product of the Integrated
