Hi, guys. I just curious what's the relationship between RFC, IETF, POSIX, IEEE.. and so on.


Request for Comments , which is know as RFC is documentation of Internet Engineering Task Force(known as IETF) and the Internet Society.

RFC includes documentation for the principal technical development and standards-setting bodies for the Internet, like HTTP, OATH, IPv6 and so on.


Internet Engineering Task Force(known as IETF) is an organization which promotes Internet Standard in particular the standards that comprise the Internet protocol suite and public RFC.


POSIX documents the application programming interface, along with command line shells, for software compatibility with variants of Unix and other operating systems.

Actually POSIX is one of documents IEEE publish as IEEE 1003.


IEEE is an organization composed of engineers, scientists, and students. The IEEE is best known for developing standards for the computer and electronics industry.

IEEE designated IEEE Standard for Floating-Point Arithmetic, IEEE Standard for local area networks and metropolitan area networks.
