Technical Summary iSCSI is a SCSI transport protocol that maps the SCSI architecture and command sets onto TCP/IP. RFC 3720 defines the iSCSI protocol. This document compiles the clarifications to the original protocol definition in RFC 3720 to serve as a companion document for the iSCSI implementers. This document updates RFC 3720 and the text in this document supersedes the text in RFC 3720 when the two differ. Working Group Summary This document consists of clarification items collected during a period of more than one year based on implementation experience. A number of the items have engendered significant working group discussion about the appropriate clarification or change. The ips WG strongly supports the resulting clarifications and changes in this document. Document Quality There are numerous implementations of iSCSI, and the entire content of this document is based on issues that have arisen from implementation experience. There are a large number of individuals listed in the acknowledgements section who have contributed to this document based on their expertise and/or implementation experience. David Black (ips WG chair) and Julian Satran (RFC 3720 editor) have reviewed this document for the ips WG. IANA has performed an early review of the IANA actions. Personnel David Black is the Document Shepherd. Lars Eggert has reviewed this document for the IESG.
