This is a COMPLETE bibliography of Internet FYI (For Your Information) documents.
BibTeX, bibliography, Internet FYI
Author Comments:
This bibliography is produced by an automated process from the master index files fyi,rfc,std-index.txt in the Internet FYI document archive at, with manual addition of protecting braces in titles, and occasional manual editing to fix other small problems.
The master archive at is mirrored to many sites around the Internet, so the documents are widely available. All bibliography entries below contain URL fields, so that the HTML version of this file at can be conveniently used to access the full document texts. Although PostScript versions of a few dozen documents are available, only the simple ASCII text versions are referenced in URLs.
You can also send email to rfc-info at with the subject line ``getting fyi's'' and the body ``help: ways_to_get_fyis''.
The bibliography entries contain extensive cross-referencing to other documents in the companion rfc.bib and std.bib files. I have not yet created a bibliography for RTR (RARE Technical Report; RARE =Reseaux Associes pour la Recherche Europeenne) documents, for which some cross-references appear. Thus, it will usually be necessary to include fyi, rfc, and std in the list of bibliography database files in a (La)TeX document, even if you are citing only one type of Internet document.
For convenience, the parenthesized notes that appear in the master index files are collected into a single note field which most standard BibTeX bibliography styles will include in the formatted bibliography. However, they also appear as additional key/value pairs which most, if not all, BibTeX styles will ignore. This additional markup may prove useful in extracting subsets of information from this bibliography.
