The Remote Procedure Call Protocol Extensions define a set of extensions to the DCE 1.1: Remote Procedure Call (RPC), as specified in [C706]. This specification assumes that the reader has familiarity with the concepts and requirements specified in [C706]. Concepts and requirements specified in [C706] are not repeated in this specification, except where required to specify how the definitions are extended. The reader may also find it helpful to be familiar with [C441], which describes the Generic Security Service API (GSS-API) Base.
Sections 1.8, 2, and 3 of this specification are normative and can contain the terms MAY, SHOULD, MUST, MUST NOT, and SHOULD NOT as defined in RFC 2119. Sections 1.5 and 1.9 are also normative but cannot contain those terms. All other sections and examples in this specification are informative.
