                           NTP PICS PROFORMA
                For the Network Time Protocol Version 3

Status of this Memo

   This memo provides information for the Internet community.  This memo
   does not specify an Internet standard of any kind.  Distribution of
   this memo is unlimited.

Abstract

   This RFC describes a PICS Proforma translated into an Internet
   acceptable form.  The Original document was developed according to
   ISO 9646 for conformance test purposes.  This document is intended
   for both developers and users of the NTP (Network Time Protocol).
   This document contains specific information and performance
   characteristics for the use of NTP within the context of Internet
   usage.  It is suggested, that users wishing to use the
   synchronization capabilities of the Internet abide by the
   characteristics set within this document.

   For more information please contact Dr. David Mills at Mills@udel.edu
   or review RFC 1305 for more information.

1.  INTRODUCTION

   To evaluate conformance of a particular implementation, it is
   necessary to have a statement of the capabilities and options that
   have been implemented for a given protocol.  Such a statement is
   called a Protocol Implementation Conformance Statement (PICS).

2.  SCOPE

   This document provides the PICS proforma for the Network Time
   Protocol (NTP) in compliance with the relevant requirements, and in
   accordance with the relevant guidance, given in ISO/IEC 9646-2.

3.  REFERENCE DOCUMENTS

     ISO/IEC 9646-1 1990, Information technology - Open systems
                    interconnection - Conformance testing
                    methodology and framework - Part 1: General
                    concepts.

          Y[]  Indicates the item is implemented

          N[]  Indicates the item is not implemented

5.  INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMPLETION OF PICS

   The supplier of a protocol implementation which is claimed to conform
   to NTP version 3 is required to complete a copy of the PICS proforma
   provided in this document and is required to provide the information
   necessary to identify both the supplier and the implementation.
