1. Introduction

   This document describes an IRIS registry schema for Internet domain
   registries using an XML Schema [4] derived from and using the IRIS
   [5] schema.  The query and result types outlined in this document are
   based on the functional requirements described in CRISP [11].

   The schema given is this document is specified using the Extensible
   Markup Language (XML) 1.0 as described in XML [1], XML Schema
   notation as described in XML_SD [3] and XML_SS [4], and XML
   Namespaces as described in XML_NS [2].

   Examples of client/server XML exchanges with this registry type are
   available in Appendix A.

2. Document Terminology

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
   document are to be interpreted as described in RFC2119 [13].

3. Schema Description

   IRIS requires the derivation of both query and result elements by a
   registry schemas.  These descriptions follow.

   References to XML elements with no namespace qualifier are from the
   schema defined in Section 4.  References to elements and attributes
   with the "iris" XML namespace qualifier are from the schema defined
   in IRIS [5].

   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 [13] to describe the specification outside
   the scope of the formal XML syntax.  While reading this section,
   please reference Section 4 for needed details on the formal XML
   syntax.

3.1 Query Derivatives

3.1.1 <listRegistrars> Query

   This query MUST return a result set of zero or more
   <registrationAuthority> elements.  See Section 3.2.5.

3.1.2 <findDomainsByContact> Query

   <findDomainsByContact> finds domains by searches on fields associated
   with a domain's contact.  A search constraint of <baseDomain> MUST
   restrict the results to domains only underneath the domain specified
   by its content if it is present.

   The allowable search fields are handled with either the
   <contactHandle> element or one of the elements in the
   "contactSearchGroup" (see Section 3.1.7).  The <contactHandle>
   element allows for the domains to be selected based on the contact
   having the specified contact handle.

   The query MAY also be constrained further using the optional <role>
   element.  The contents of this element signify the role the contact
   has with the domain.

   This query also provides optional <language> elements containing
   language tags.  Clients may use these elements to inform the server
   of a desired search algorithm that may benefit from the determination
   of the desired languages.  Servers MAY use this information in
   processing the query, such as input to normalization routines to aid

   in more effective searches.

3.1.3 <findDomainsByName> Query

   The <findDomainsByName> query finds domains by the name of a domain
   as it is known in DNS.  A search constraint of <baseDomain> MUST
   restrict the results to domains only underneath the domain specified
   by its content if it is present.  The content of this element MUST be
   a valid domain name according to RFC 1035 [12].  The <namePart>
   element restricts the scope of the query with its child elements.
   The <beginsWith> element specifies the beginning of the domain name.
   The <endsWith> element specifies the end of the domain name.  The
   contents of <beginsWith> and <endsWith> elements MUST be ASCII.

3.1.4 <findDomainsByIDNName> Query

   The <findDomainsByIDNName> query finds domains by the name of the
   domain as it is known.  It differs from the <findDomainsByName> query
   by allowing the scope of the query to take into consideration
   internationalized domain names.

   A search constraint of <baseDomain> MUST restrict the results to
   domains only underneath the domain specified by its content if it is
   present.  The content of this element MUST be a valid domain name
   according to RFC 1035 [12].  The <namePart> element restricts the
   scope of the query with its child elements.  The <beginsWith> element
   specifies the beginning of the domain name.  The <endsWith> element
   specifies the end of the domain name.  The <exactMatch> element
   specifies an equivalance with respect to rules governing
   internationalization of domain names.  The contents of <beginsWith>,
   <endsWith>, and <exactMatch> MUST be normalized according to the
   processes of RFC 3491 [15].

   This query also provides optional <language> elements containing
   language tags.  Clients may use these elements to inform the server
   of a desired search algorithm that may benefit from the determination
   of the desired languages.  Servers MAY use this information in
   processing the query, such as input to normalization routines to aid
   in more effective searches.

3.1.5 <findContacts> Query

   <findContacts> searches for contacts given search constraints.

   The allowable search fields are handled by one of the elements in the
   "contactSearchGroup" (see Section 3.1.7).

   This query also provides optional <language> elements containing

   language tags.  Clients may use these elements to inform the server
   of a desired search algorithm that may benefit from the determination
   of the desired languages.  Servers MAY use this information in
   processing the query, such as input to normalization routines to aid
   in more effective searches.

3.1.6 <findDomainsByHost> Query

   This query does a simple search for the domains being hosted by a
   name server.  The search is constrained using either the host name,
   host handle, IPv4 address, or IPv6 address of the name server.

3.1.7 Contact Search Group

   Some of the queries above have similar query constraints for
   searching on contacts.  This section describes those common
   parameters.

   <commonName> allows the query to be constrained based on the common
   name of the contact.  The constraint can either constrain the query
   by an exact match using the <exactMatch> element, or it may constrain
   the query by a subset of the common name using the <startsWith> and
   <endsWith> elements.

   <organization> allows the query to be constrained based on the
   organization name of the contact.  It has the same semantics as the
   <commonName> element.

   <eMail> constrains the query based on the e-mail address of the
   contact.  This may be done by an exact e-mail address using the
   <exactMatch> element or by any e-mail address in a domain using the
   <inDomain> element.  The <inDomain> MUST only contain a valid domain
   name (i.e.  no '@' symbol).  If either the contents of the <inDomain>
   element or domain part of the contents of the <exactMatch> element
   contain a name with Unicode characters, they must be normalized
   according to the processes of RFC 3491 [15].

   The <city>, <region>, and <postalCode> elements restrict the scope of
   the query based on the city, region, or postal code of the contact,
   respectively.  Each one must only contain an <exactMatch> element
   containing the exact city, region, or postal code (i.e.  no substring
   searches).

3.2 Result Derivatives

3.2.1 Privacy Labels

   Several of the results in this registry type have values that cannot

   be given but must be specified as present or must be flagged so that
   clients do not divulge them.  In order to achieve this, some of the
   results use the following element types:

   o  "dateTimePrivacyType" - contains the XML Schema [3] data type
      "dateTime".

   o  "stringPrivacyType" - contains the XML Schema [3] data type
      "string".

   o  "normalizedStringPrivacyType" - contains the XML Schema [3] data
      type "normalizedString".

   o  "tokenPrivacyType" - contains the XML Schema [3] data type
      "token".

   o  "domainStatusType" - contains an optional element of <appliedDate>
      indicating the date and time the status was applied and an
      optional element of <description> with required attribute
      'language' indicating a description of the status.  This element
      also has an optional attribute of 'scope' to indicate the scope or
      origin of the status value.

   As specified, they are nillable and therefore may be present with
   empty content or present with their specified content.  And their
   specified cardinality allows their absence.

   Each of these element types MUST have one or more of the following
   boolean attributes if they are present without content:

   o  'private' - if true, this specifies that the content is absent
      because it may never be published.

   o  'denied' - if true, this specifies that the content is absent
      because policy does not allow it to be given under the current
      level of access.

   Each of these element types MAY have one or more of the following
   boolean attributes if they are present with content:

   o  'doNotRedistribute' - if true, this specifies that the content is
      not to be redistributed.

   o  'specialAccess' - if true, this specifies that the content has
      been provided due to special access rights.

   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 [12].

   o  <idn> - the name of the domain in nameprep form if applicable.
      See RFC 3491 [15].

   o  <domainHandle> - a registry unique assigned identifier to a

      type <host> (Section 3.2.3).

   o  <registrant> - an element containing an entity reference to the
      registrant of this domain.  The referent MUST be a <contact>
      (Section 3.2.4) result.

   o  Domain contacts - the following elements contain an entity
      reference with a relationship to the domain.  The referent of each
      MUST be a <contact> (Section 3.2.4).

      *  <billingContacts>

      *  <technicalContacts>

      *  <administrativeContacts>

      *  <legalContacts>

   o  <delegationReference> - an element containing an entity reference,
      the referent of which MUST be a <domain> (Section 3.2.2).  The
      intention of this element is to point to the downstream delegation
      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  <lastVerificationDateTime> - an element containing the date and
      time this data for this contact was last verified to be correct by
      the appropriate registration authority.

   o  <translatedContacts> - an element containing an entity reference
      specifying equivalents of this contact that have been translated
      into other languages.  The referent MUST be <contact> (Section
      3.2.4) results.

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


3.2.5 <registrationAuthority>

   The <registrationAuthority> result represents an entity capable of
   registering domains.

   The <serviceInstance> child element of <registrationAuthority>
   contains an entity reference pointing to the entity "id" in the
   entity class "service-definition".  The authority areas found in the
   referent MUST be domains and are the domains for which a given
   registration authority has control.

   The <organizationName> child element contains the name of the
   registration authority.

   The registration authority type child elements, <registry>,
   <registrar>, and <other>, determine the role in which this
   registration authority plays in the process of registering domains.
   The intent of this element is to explain the various roles a
   registration authority may have with regards to the authority areas
   pointed to by the <serviceInstance> element.  A client MAY understand
   the relationship of a registration authority with respect to a domain
   by the placement of the reference in the domain (e.g.  <registry> or
   <registrar>).

   The <domain> child elements each contain one domain name signifying
   the domains for which this registration authority may register
   sub-domains.

3.3 Generic Code Derivatives

3.3.1 <searchTooWide>

   Servers MAY use the <searchTooWide> error code when a query capable
   of using one of the elements from the contact search group (Section

   3.1.7) must be narrowed to yield a result set acceptable to the
   policies of the server operator.

3.3.2 <languageNotSupported>

   The queries <findDomainsByRegistrant>, <findDomainsByI18NName>, and
   <findContacts> support optional language tags that allow a client to
   suggest to a server the languages in which to scope the queries.  If
   a client passes to the server a language which the server does not
   support, the server MAY use this error code to indicate that one of
   the languages is not supported.

3.4 Support for <iris:lookupEntity>

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

   o  host-name - the fully qualified domain name of a nameserver.
      Yields a <host> (Section 3.2.3) in the response.

   o  host-handle - the registry unique identifier given a nameserver.
      Yields a <host> (Section 3.2.3) in the response.

   o  domain-name - the fully qualified name of a domain.  This a domain
      name as specified by RFC 1035 [12].  Yields a <domain> (Section
      3.2.2) in the response.

   o  idn - the fully qualified name of a domain in nameprep form (see
      RFC 3491 [15]).  Yields a <domain> (Section 3.2.2) in the
      response.

   o  domain-handle - the registry unique identifier given a domain.
      Yields a <domain> (Section 3.2.2) in the response.

   o  contact-handle - the registry unique identifier given a contact.
      Yields a <contact> (Section 3.2.4) in the response.

   o  ipv4-address - the IPv4 address of a nameserver.  Yields a <host>
      (Section 3.2.3) in the response.

   o  ipv6-address - the IPv6 address of a nameserver.  Yields a <host>
      (Section 3.2.3) in the response.

   o  registration-authority - the name of a registration authority.
      Yields a <registrationAuthority> (Section 3.2.5) in the response.

   o  All names in these entity classes are case insensitive.

4. Formal XML Syntax

   This registry schema is specified in the XML Schema notation.  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.

5. BEEP Transport Compliance

   IRIS allows several extensions of the core capabilities.  This
   section outlines those extensions allowable by IRIS-BEEP [6].

5.1 Message Pattern

   This registry type uses the default message pattern as described in
   IRIS-BEEP [6].

5.2 Server Authentication

   This registry type uses the default server authentication method as
   described in IRIS-BEEP [6].

6. URI Resolution

6.1 Application Service Label

   The application service label associated with this registry type MUST
   be "DREG1".  This is the abbreviated form the URN for this registry
   type, urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:dreg1.

6.2 Bottom-Up Resolution

   The bottom-up alternative resolution method MUST be identified as
   'bottom' in IRIS URI's.

   The process for this resolution method differs from the
   direct-resolution method if the authority is only a domain name (i.e.
   without the port number).  The process for this condition is as
   follows:

   1.  The IRIS [5] direct resolution process is tried on the domain
       name (e.g.  "example.com" ).

   2.  If no records are found, then the left-most component of the
       domain name is removed, and the first step is repeated again
       (e.g.  "com" ).

   3.  If all the components of the domain name are removed and no
       records are found, then the DNS is queried for the A records
       corresponding to the original domain name and the port used is
       the well-known port for the default protocol of IRIS.


6.3 Top-Down Resolution

   The top-down alternative resolution method MUST be identified as
   'top' in IRIS URI's.

   The process for this resolution method differs from the
   direct-resolution method if the authority is only a domain name (i.e.
   without the port number).  The process for this condition is as
   follows:

   1.  The domain name is reduced to its leftmost component.  This is
       always '.'.

   2.  The IRIS [5] direct resolution process is tried on the domain
       name.

   3.  If no records are found, then the original component to the right

       of the left-most component of the domain name is prepended, and
       the second step is repeated again (e.g.  if "." then "com", if
       "com" then "example.com").

   4.  If all the components of the original domain are present and no
       records are found, then the DNS is queried for the A records
       corresponding to the original domain name and the port used is
       the well-known port for the default protocol of IRIS.

7. Internationalization Considerations

   Implementers should be aware of considerations for
   internationalization in IRIS [5].

   In addition, this document specifies the lookup of domain names, both
   the traditional ASCII form and the IDN form.  In addition, the social
   data associated with contacts may also be in Unicode.  Server
   implementations should take care with normalization processes of
   Unicode during searches.  The <language> element is provided in
   queries that have potential to traverse such data.  Clients should
   use these elements to indicate to the server the target languages
   desired, and servers should use these elements to better enable
   normalization and search processes.

   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 data that may be in Unicode
   are accompanied by these elements in order to aid better presentation
   of the data to the user.

8. IANA Considerations

   The following URN will need to be registered with IANA according to
   the IANA considerations defined in IRIS [5]:

      urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:dreg1

   The following NAPSTR application service label will need to be
   registered with IANA according to the IANA considerations defined in

   beyond that specified in IRIS [5].

Appendix A. Example Requests and Responses

   The examples in this section use the string "C:" to denote data sent
   by a client to a server and the string "S:" to denote data sent by a
   server to a client.

A.1 Example 1

   The following is an example of an entity lookup in a dreg1 registry
   for the contact-handle of 'mak21'.  The response shows the ability to
   specify data as being withheld because it is private.

Appendix C. Acknowledgements

   Many of the concepts concerning the use of SRV records for step-wise
   refinement towards finding authoritative servers and many of the
   details of result objects in this draft were originally created by
   Eric A.  Hall in his memos regarding the use of LDAP to satisfy the
   CRISP requirements.  These concepts have contributed significantly to
   the development of this protocol.
