Technical Summary This document is a revised version of RFC 2301. The revisions are based on discussions and suggestions for improvements that have been made since RFC 2301 was issued in March 1998, and on the results of independent implementations and interoperability testing. This RFC 2301 revision describes the TIFF (Tag Image File Format) representation of image data specified by the ITU-T Recommendations for black-and-white and color facsimile. This file format specification is commonly known as TIFF-FX. It formally defines minimal, extended and lossless JBIG profiles (Profiles S, F, J) for black-and-white fax, and base JPEG, lossless JBIG and Mixed Raster Content profiles (Profiles C, L, M) for color and grayscale fax. These profiles correspond to the content of the applicable ITU-T Recommendations. In addition, two MIME sub-type registration documents are part of this request for advancement to draft standard: draft-ietf-fax-tiff-fx-reg-v2 (image/tiff-fx) updates RFC 3250. RFC 3302 (image/tiff). Working Group Summary These documents are products of the Internet Fax Working Group. There has been an ongoing discussion about the validity of the implementation testing, specifically to confirm that at least two independent implementations of Profile M have been developed and demonstrated. Protocol Quality These documents have been reviewed for the IESG by Scott Hollenbeck. Implementation reports can be found on the IETF web site: http://www.ietf.org/IESG/Implementations/rfc2301-implementation-report.txt (also describes implementations of RFC 3250 as updated by draft-ietf-fax-tiff-fx-reg-v2) http://www.ietf.org/IESG/Implementations/RFC3302-implementation-report.txt RFC Editor Note: Please remove section 1.4 of draft-ietf-fax-tiff-fx and replace with standard IETF IPR boilerplate in an appropriate location.
