    They are an excellent understanding of the theory of what is part of a network and security. However, remember that theory and implimentation are often two different beasties.

    you can get here:
    http://www.ietf.org/rfc
    for example. Or use this syntax to go directly to:
    http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfcxxxx.txt
    example: http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc1305.txt
    As a source of knowledge, i would recommend that you first (if you know near nothing) read some basic books about the subject (or google it) and after go to rfc to understand more.
    Go direct to them can cause brain damage :P

    I like http://www.faqs.org/faqs/

    It gives you FAQs and RFCs.

    It is an archive and not sure if its completely up to date... but I've always found what I've needed there.

    They are also experimenting with another way to organize the RFCs.

    I like how they organize them into the different categories.

    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

    Indeed. RFCs can be really hard to read and understand. But they're an invaluable source of information if you want to know about the nuts and bolts of a protocoll.
