Abstract

The Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) Status Code Registry defines the name space for the Status-Code token in the Status line of an HTTP response (see RFC2616).

Previously, both the registration procedure and the initial registry contents were defined by RFC2817. This specification moves this aspect of RFC2817 into a separate standards-track document for easier maintenance.

Table of Contents

1. Introduction

The Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) Status Code Registry defines the name space for the Status-Code token in the Status line of an HTTP response (see [RFC2616], Section 6.1).

2. Registration Procedure

Values to be added to this name space SHOULD be subject to review in the form of a standards track document within the IETF Applications Area. Any such document SHOULD be traceable through statuses of either 'Obsoletes' or 'Updates' to this document.

The registry itself is maintained at <http://www.iana.org/assignments/http-status-codes>.

3. Security Considerations

No security considerations are introduced by this document beyond those already inherent in use of the referenced HTTP status codes.

4. IANA Considerations

Appendix A of this specification provides updated registrations of HTTP status codes for the IANA registry at <http://www.iana.org/assignments/http-status-codes>.

5. Acknowledgments

Thanks to authors of [RFC2817] - Rohit Khare and Scott Lawrence - for the original specification.
