Paper Abstract

Recent work in the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) has focused on the transport of image file formats over the Internet that typically represent documents suitable for output on paper or other graphically rich display terminals. This paper describes the recent work on the Internet Printing Protocol and Internet Fax. The protocols, image file formats selected for inclusion and the rationale for the various engineering choices made are discussed. A considerable number of new products and services support these new protocols and it is the belief of the authors that these technologies represent the principal means by which document images will be transported over the Internet in the future. New work within the IETF is concentrate on extending the protocols and principals embodied in both schemes to create a more robust 'quality document distribution' mod.
