RFC-290 is titled “Computer networks and data sharing: A bibliography”. It's authored by Alvin P. Mullery of IBM and dated January 11, 1972.
The technical content
This is another bibliography, similar to Mullery's RFC-243, and seems to be an update with a lot more papers. This RFC lists 115 papers compared to RFC-243 which had 65.
In particular, the data security section has 16 papers instead of the one paper he listed in RFC-243.
