In 2019 I'm reading one RFC a day in chronological order starting from the very first one. More on this project here. There is a table of contents for all my RFC posts.

A revision of another shot at interprocess communication

RFC-62 is titled “A System for Interprocess Communication in a Resource Sharing Computer Network”, authored August 3rd, 1970 by Dave Walden of BBN.

The technical content

This RFC is a revision of RFC-61. It adds:

And is generally edited for clarity and layout.

The paper is overall very similar so I won't go into detail. (Also: I am tired. The last ten RFCs have been very long and very technical.)

Further reading

As I mentioned in my RFC-61 post, these drafts form the basis of a paper that would eventually be published in April 1972 in Communications of the ACM and is fairly heavily cited by other papers. The full paper is hosted by Walden at his web site.
