Working Group of the IETF.

       Title     : Session Identification URI
       Author(s) : P. Hallam-Baker, D. Connolly
       Filename  : draft-ietf-http-session-id-00.txt
       Pages     : 11
       Date      : 02/23/1996

A Uniform Resource Identifier for identifying HTTP sessions is described.
Session identification URIs permit HTTP transactions to be linked within a
limited domain. This provides a balance between the needs of commercial
servers for demographic data collection and the privacy concerns of users.
In addition session identification URIs may be used as part of a high
security authentication mechanism to prevent replay attacks.

Send a message to:  mailserv@ds.internic.net. In the body type:
     "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-ietf-http-session-id-00.txt".

NOTE: The mail server at ds.internic.net can return the document in
      MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
      feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
      command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
      a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
      exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
      "multipart" MIME messages (i.e., documents which have been split
      up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
      how to manipulate these messages.

For questions, please mail to Internet-Drafts@cnri.reston.va.us.

Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version
