        RFC 5546

        Title:      iCalendar Transport-Independent Interoperability 
                    Protocol (iTIP) 
        Author:     C. Daboo, Ed.
        Status:     Standards Track
        Date:       December 2009
        Pages:      133

        Updates:    RFC5545

        I-D Tag:    draft-ietf-calsify-2446bis-10.txt


This document specifies a protocol that uses the iCalendar object
specification to provide scheduling interoperability between
different calendaring systems.  This is done without reference to a
specific transport protocol so as to allow multiple methods of
communication between systems.  Subsequent documents will define
profiles of this protocol that use specific, interoperable methods of
communication between systems.

The iCalendar Transport-Independent Interoperability Protocol (iTIP)
complements the iCalendar object specification by adding semantics
for group scheduling methods commonly available in current
calendaring systems.  These scheduling methods permit two or more
calendaring systems to perform transactions such as publishing,
scheduling, rescheduling, responding to scheduling requests,
negotiating changes, or canceling.  [STANDARDS TRACK]

This document is a product of the Calendaring and Scheduling Standards Simplification Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet standards track
protocol for the Internet community,and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Internet
Official Protocol Standards (STD 1) for the standardization state and
status of this protocol.  Distribution of this memo is unlimited.
