1 Introduction

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 might also find it helpful to be familiar with [C441], which describes the Generic Security Service API (GSS-API) Base.

Sections 1.5, 1.8, 1.9, 2, and 3 of this specification are normative. All other sections and examples in this specification are informative.
