Licklider Transmission Protocol (LTP), Compressed Bundle Header Encoding
              (CBHE), and Bundle Protocol IANA Registries
                   draft-dtnrg-ltp-cbhe-registries-07

Abstract

   The DTNRG research group has defined the experimental Licklider
   Transmission Protocol (LTP) [RFC5326] and the Compressed Bundle
   Header Encoding (CBHE) [RFC6260] mechanism for the InterPlanetary
   Network (ipn URI scheme).  Moreover, RFC5050 [RFC5050] defines values
   for the Bundle Administrative Record Type.  All of these fields are
   subject to a registry.  For the purpose of its research work, the
   group has created ad-hoc registries.  As the specifications are
   stable and have multiple interoperable implementations, the group
   would like to hand off the registries to IANA for official
   management.  This document describes the actions needed to be
   executed by IANA.

Internet-Draft     LTP, CBHE, and BP  IANA Registries       October 2013


1.  Introduction

   The DTNRG research group has defined the Licklider Transmission
   Protocol (LTP)[RFC5326].  LTP contains certain fields that are
   subject to a registry.  For the purpose of its research work, the
   group has created ad-hoc registries.  As the specifications are
   stable and have multiple interoperable implementations, the group
   would like to hand off the registries to IANA for official
   management.  This document describes the actions needed to be
   executed by IANA using the Well-Known IANA Policy Definitions defined
   in Section 4.1 of [RFC5226].

   The Compressed Bundle Header Encoding (CBHE) [RFC6260] specification
   defines the concepts of Node Number and Service Number in the 'ipn'
   URI scheme.  In this document we request formation of an IANA
   registry for the Node Number field in the 'ipn' scheme.

   Because of its association with space communication and the
   Consultative Committee on Space Data Systems [CCSDS], a portion of
   the CBHE Node Number space and a corresponding portion of the LTP
   Engine ID space is delegated by this document to the CCSDS Space
   Assigned Numbers Authority [SANA].  SANA functions similarly to IANA
   in that it maintains registries of managed values, with a focus on
   values used by protocols used by CCSDS member agencies.


2.  Security Considerations

   This document requests the creation of registries managed by IANA.
   There are no security issues involved.  Refer to the Security
   Considerations section of [RFC5326] for security issues with the LTP
   protocol.


3.  IANA Considerations

   IANA is requested to create registries as described in this section.

3.1.  Licklider Transmission Protocol

   The Licklider Transmission Protocol has fields requiring registries
   managed by IANA.  This document requests the creation of the three
   registries in this section and that they be associated with the other
   registries for the Licklider Transmission protocol.

3.1.1.  LTP Cancel Segment Reason Codes

   Section 3.2.4 of [RFC5326] defines the reason codes that may be
   present in Cancel Segments in the LTP protocol.

   The registration policy for this registry is: Specification Required

   The initial values (as defined by RFC5326) for the LTP Cancel Segment
   Reason Codes registry shall be:

                 LTP Cancel Segment Reason Codes Registry

3.1.2.  LTP Engine ID

   The Licklider Transmission Protocol has an LTP Engine ID field
   (section 2 of [RFC5326]).  An IANA registry shall be set up as
   follows.

   The registration policy for this registry is:

   1 -- (2**14)-1  Expert review required.

   (2**14) -- (2**21)-1  Allocated to the Space Assigned Numbers
      Authority ([SANA]) for use by Consultative Committee for Space
      Data Systems (CCSDS) missions.

   (2**21) -- (2**28)-1  Private or experimental use.

   (2**28) -- (2**42)-1  First-come, First-Served basis for requests for
      less than or equal to 2**14 values to a single entity or
      organization.  Expert review for requests of more than 2**14
      values to a single entity or organization.

   The LTP Engine ID is expressed as a Self-Delimiting Numeric Value
   (SDNV) in the LTP protocol and no maximum is specified in the
   protocol definition.  SDNVs are described in Section 4.1 of the

3.1.3.  LTP Client Service ID

   The Licklider Transmission Protocol has a client service ID number
   field (section 3.2.1 of [RFC5326]).  An IANA registry shall be set up
   as follows.

   The registration policy for this registry is:

   4 -- (2**14)-1  Allocated to the Space Assigned Numbers Authority
      ([SANA]) for use by Consultative Committee for Space Data Systems
      (CCSDS) missions.

   2**14 -- 32,767  Private or experimental use.

   >= 32,768  Specification required.

   The LTP Client Service ID is expressed as a Self-Delimiting Numeric

3.2.  Compressed Bundle Header Encoding

   The CBHE specification [RFC6260] defines concepts of 'Node Number'
   and 'Service Number' that require registries managed by IANA.

3.2.1.  CBHE Node Numbers

   The CBHE specification defines a Node Number (node-nbr) field
   (section 2.1 of [RFC6260]).  An IANA registry shall be set up as

3.2.2.  CBHE Service Numbers

   The Compressed Bundle Header Encoding specification defines a Service
   Number (service-nbr) field (section 2.1 of [RFC6260]).  An IANA
   registry shall be set up as follows.

   The registration policy for this registry is:

   0-63  RFC Required
