FIPS 146-2	Profiles for Open Systems Internetworking Technologies (POSIT)
Issued: 95 May 15	Withdrawn: 98 Nov 18	Citation: 63FR/64062

This is why the FIPS standard was withdrawn:

On February 24, 1998, notice was published
in the Federal Register (63 FR 9199) proposing withdrawal of nineteen
Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) Publications, because
the technical specifications that they adopt are obsolete and are no
longer supported by industry...
 Current voluntary industry standards should be used by agencies in
their procurement actions when appropriate, in accordance with OMB
Circular A-119, Federal Participation and Use of Voluntary Standards."
