1 Introduction

The Server Message Block (SMB) Protocol Versions 2 and 3 supports the sharing of file and print resources between machines. The protocol borrows and extends concepts from the Server Message Block (SMB) Version 1.0 Protocol, as specified in [MS-SMB]. This specification assumes familiarity with [MS-SMB], and with the security concepts described in [MS-WPO] section 9.

Sections 1.5, 1.8, 1.9, 2, and 3 of this specification are normative. All other sections and examples in this specification are informative.
