1.  Introduction

   This document describes a lightweight service for checking the
   availability of domain names.  This service is based on the IRIS
   framework and uses the data model defined by RFC3982 [7].  By doing
   this, the domain availability service has the advantages provided by
   IRIS and DREG, such as well-known methods for server navigation,
   structured queries and results, and layered extensibility.

   The use of IRIS for this service also allows seamless integration
   between the domain availability service and the service provided by
   DREG.  This allows a user to find the availability status of a domain
   and reference the full registration information in DREG.

   The data model in this service (called a registry schema in IRIS
   terms) is a strict subset of the DREG data model.  This enables
   implementors to directly reuse DREG code paths and allows operators
   to deploy the service in either the same server processes as a DREG
   service (same host and port) or in a different server process
   (different port) or machine (different host).

   As an example, an operator may wish to deploy both types of service
   on the same set of machines.  As time goes on, the operator may then
   decide to segregate the services, placing the domain availability
   service on one set of machines and the DREG service on a separate set
   of machines with a stricter set of controls.  Either deployment
   scenario is transparent to the end user and always appear to be
   seamlessly complementary.

   When coupled with [11], this domain availability service is
   lightweight and extremely efficient for high-volume, public-facing
   service.

3.  Domain Availability Check Registry

   The data model used for the domain availability check (DCHK) service
   is a strict subset of the DREG data model.  This section describes
   the DCHK registry type.

3.1.  Schema Description

   References to XML elements with no namespace qualifier are from the
   schema defined in Section 3.2.  References to elements and attributes
   with the "iris" XML namespace qualifier are from the schema defined
   in IRIS [6].

   The descriptions contained within this section refer to XML elements
   and attributes and their relation to the exchange of data within the
   protocol.  These descriptions also contain specifications outside the
   scope of the formal XML syntax.  Therefore, this section will use
   terms defined by RFC 2119 [2] to describe the specification outside
   the scope of the formal XML syntax.  While reading this section,
   please reference Section 3.2 for needed details on the formal XML
   syntax.

3.1.1.  The <domain> Result

   An example of a <domain> result:

   <domain
     authority="iana.org" registryType="dchk1"
     entityClass="domain-name" entityName="example.com">
     <domainName>example.com</domainName>
     <status><active/></status>
   </domain>

                          <domain> Example

   The <domain> result represents an instance of a domain assignment.
   The children of the <domain> element are as follows:

   o  <domainName> - the full name of the domain as it is in DNS.  The
      contents of this element MUST be a domain name as specified by RFC
      1035 [1].

   o  <idn> - the name of the domain in nameprep form if applicable.
      See RFC 3491 [3].

   o  <status> - this element contains child elements representing
      domain status information.  It defines the following status types:

      *  <active> - available via DNS (either via delegation or direct
         publication)

      *  <inactive> - unavailable via DNS

      *  <dispute> - registrant assignment is in dispute

      *  <renew> - renewal of domain registration

      *  <addPeriod> - the domain is in the grace period after creation
         or activation (see RFC 3915 [5]).

      *  <renewPeriod> - the domain is in the grace period after renewal
         (see RFC 3915 [5]).

      *  <autoRenewPeriod> - the domain is in the grace period after
         automatic renewal (see RFC 3915 [5]).

      *  <transferPeriod> - the domain is in the grace period after
         transfer (see RFC 3915 [5]).

      *  <redemptionPeriod> - the domain is in the grace period after
         deletion (see RFC 3915 [5]).

      *  <restore> - change to previous status of this domain

      *  <policyCompliant> - the domain is considered compliant
         according to a given policy specified by the substatus
         identifier.

      *  <policyNoncompliant> - the domain is not considered compliant
         according to a given policy specified by the substatus
         identifier.

      *  <reserved> - the domain is reserved and is not available for
         registration under normal registration procedures.

      *  <create> - specifies the creation status of the domain in the
         registration system.

      *  <delete> - specifies the deletion status of the domain in the
         registration system.

      *  <transfer> - specifies the transfer status of the domain from
         one responsible or owning entity in the registration system to
         another.

      *  <update> - specifies the status of the domain as it relates to
         information in the domain being modified or having the ability
         to be modified.

      *  <other> - specifies a registration system specific status of
         the domain.

   o  <registrationReference> - an element containing an entity
      reference, the referent of which MUST be either a <domain>
      (Section 3.1.1) or a <domain> as defined by RFC3982 [7].  The
      intent of this element is to point to the downstream registration
      reference.  Therefore, if this is a result given back by a domain
      registry, it should point to the domain in the domain registrar or
      registrant service.

   o  <createdDateTime> - an element containing the date and time of the
      creation of this domain

   o  <initialDelegationDateTime> - an element containing the date and
      time of the initial delegation of this domain.

   o  <expirationDateTime> - an element containing the date and time of
      the expiration of this domain

   o  <lastDatabaseUpdateDateTime> - an element containing the date and
      time of the last actualization of the database that is source for
      this result

   o  <iris:seeAlso> - an element containing an entity reference
      specifying a referent that is indirectly associated with this
      domain.

3.1.1.1.  Domain Status Type

   Each element of type 'domainStatusType' has the following
   composition:

   o  <appliedDate> - an optional child element containing the date
      applicable to creation of the status.

   o  <ticket> - an optional child element containing a service ticket
      identifier relevant to the status.

   o  <description> - zero or more child elements with text to describe
      the status in natural language.  Each of these elements MUST have
      a 'language' attribute describing the language of the description
      element.

Internet-Draft                  iris-dchk                       Oct 2007


   o  <subStatus> - a child element indicating further status
      information.  Values for this element are not defined by this
      specification.  This child element has a required 'authority'
      attribute to indicate the origin of the specification of the value
      of this element.

   o  'actor' - an optional attribute indicating the acting entity for
      which this status is applied.  The values may be "registry",
      "registrar" or "registrationServiceProvider".

   o  'disposition' - an optional attribute indicating the nature of
      this status.  The values may be "pending" or "prohibited".

   o  'scope' - an optional attribute indicating the context or origin
      of the status value.

3.1.2.  Support for <iris:lookupEntity>

   The following types of entity classes are recognized by the
   <lookupEntity> query of IRIS for this registry:

   o  domain-name - the fully qualified name of a domain.  This a domain
      name as specified by RFC 1035 [1].  Yields a <domain>
      (Section 3.1.1) in the response.

   o  idn - the fully qualified name of a domain in nameprep form (see
      RFC 3491 [3]).  Yields a <domain> (Section 3.1.1) in the response.

3.2.  DCHK Formal XML Syntax

   This registry schema is specified in the XML Schema notation (see [9]
   and [10]).  The formal syntax presented here is a complete schema
   representation suitable for automated validation of an XML instance
   when combined with the formal schema syntax of IRIS.

3.3.  BEEP Transport Compliance

   Though it is envisioned that a DCHK service will be deployed with a
   lightweight transport such as [11], it is still possible to use DCHK
   with the BEEP transport [8].  The use of this transport is completely
   at the discretion of the server operator.

   IRIS allows several extensions of the core capabilities.  This
   section outlines those extensions allowable by IRIS-BEEP [8].

3.3.1.  Message Pattern

   This registry type uses the default message pattern as described in
   IRIS-BEEP [8].

3.3.2.  Server Authentication

   This registry type uses the default server authentication method as
   described in IRIS-BEEP [8].

3.4.  URI Resolution

3.4.1.  Application Service Label

   The application service label associated with this registry type MUST
   be "DCHK1".  This is the abbreviated form of the URN for this
   registry type, urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:dchk1.

Internet-Draft                  iris-dchk                       Oct 2007


3.4.2.  Bottom-Up Resolution

   The bottom-up alternative resolution method MUST be identified as
   'bottom' in IRIS URI's.  Its process is identical to the 'bottom'
   process described by RFC3982 [7].

3.4.3.  Top-Down Resolution

   The top-down alternative resolution method MUST be identified as
   'top' in IRIS URI's.  Its process is identical to the 'top' process
   described by RFC3982 [7].

4.  Internationalization Considerations

   Implementers should be aware of considerations for
   internationalization in IRIS [6].

   Clients needing to localize the data tags in this protocol should
   take note that localization is only needed on the names of XML
   elements and attributes with the exception of elements containing
   date and time information.  The schema for this registry has been
   designed so that clients need not interpret the content of elements
   or attributes for localization, other than those elements containing
   date and time information.

   Clients should also make use of the <language> elements provided in
   many of the results.  Results containing internationalized data can
   be accompanied by these elements in order to aid better localization
   of the data by the user

   All date and time elements make use of the XML Schema [9] data type
   "dateTime".  If their contents are Coordinated Universal Time (UTC)
   timestamps, they MUST be specified by using the capitalized 'Z'
   indicator (instead of 'z').

5.  IANA Considerations

5.1.  XML Namespace Registration

   This document makes use of the XML registry specified in RFC 3688
   [4].  Accordingly, the following registration information is provided
   for the IANA:

   o  XML Namespace URN/URI:

      *  urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:dchk1

   o  Contact:

      *  Andrew Newton <andy@hxr.us>

      *  Marcos Sanz <sanz@denic.de>

   o  XML:

      *  None.

5.2.  XML Schema Registration

   This document makes use of the XML registry specified in RFC 3688
   [4].  Accordingly, the following registration information is provided
   for the IANA:

   o  XML Schema URN/URI:

      *  urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:dchk1

   o  Contact:

      *  Andrew Newton <andy@hxr.us>

      *  Marcos Sanz <sanz@denic.de>

   o  XML:

      *  The XML Schema specified in Section 3.2

5.3.  S-NAPTR Registration

   The following S-NAPTR application service label will need to be
   registered with IANA according to the IANA considerations defined in
   IRIS [6]:

6.  Security Considerations

   Being a proper subset of RFC3982 [7], the registry described in this
   document introduces no security considerations beyond those
   documented in RFC3981 [6].
