assigned number

  1. In internetworking there are the most different names, designations and numbers with which the communication is supported. For example, IP addresses, port numbers, domain names or protocol parameters. An assigned number is a numerical value used to designate a specific protocol, an application or an organization, but not an address. Assigned Numbers are assigned by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).

  2. The Assigned Number is also the RFC document that specifies the numeric values used by TCP/IP protocols and entered in the protocol type field.
