Internet-Draft submission

This page is used to submit Internet-Drafts to the Internet-Draft repository.

The last submission time for new Internet-Drafts before the meeting is 2021-07-12 23:59 UTC.
After that, you will not be able to submit drafts until after 2021-07-24 23:59 PDT (IETF-meeting local time)

By submitting your I-D, you are granting some rights to the IETF Trust. Before you submit your I-D, review the information on the NOTE WELL tab and BCP 78, "Rights Contributors Provide to the IETF Trust".

Before you submit your I-D, it is recommended that you check it for nits using the idnits tool.

Please send reports about submission tool bugs to the Tools Team using one of the Bug Report links at the bottom of the page.

If you run into problems submitting an Internet-Draft and need to request manual posting of an Internet-Draft, please send the draft and the reason for manual posting to support@ietf.org. Be advised that manual processing always takes additional time.

Upload an Internet-Draft

The best way to submit an Internet-Draft is to provide a single v3 .xml source file. The datatracker will generate the .txt and other formats from that file.
Source v3 .xml which include external files must be preprocessed through xml2rfc with the --expand option, to produce a completely expanded (standalone) .xml source file for upload.
The online conversion tool can be used to convert v2 .xml documents to v3.
A single v3 .xml source is preferred. A single v2 .xml source will be accepted. If neither of those are available, a plain-text document may be provided. One of these three options must be provided.
Other file types are optional.
