Internet-Draft        Launch Phase Mapping for EPP            March 2014


1.  Introduction

   This document describes an extension mapping for version 1.0 of the
   Extensible Provisioning Protocol (EPP) [RFC5730].  This EPP mapping
   specifies a flexible schema that can be used to implement several
   common use cases related to the provisioning and management of domain
   name registrations and applications during the launch of a domain
   name registry.

   It is typical for domain registries to operate in special modes
   during their initial launch to facilitate allocation of domain names,
   often according to special rules.  This document uses the term
   "launch phase" and the shorter form "launch" to refer to such a
   period.

   The EPP domain name mapping [RFC5731] is designed for the steady-
   state operation of a registry.  During a launch period, the model in
   place may be different from what is defined in the EPP domain name
   mapping [RFC5731].  For example, registries often accept multiple
   applications for the same domain name during the "Sunrise" launch
   phase, referred to as a Launch Application.  A Launch Registration
   refers to a registration made during a launch phase when the server
   uses a "first-come, first-served" model.  Even in a "first-come,
   first-served" model, additional steps and information might be
   required, such as trademark information.  In addition, the TMCH
   Functional Specification [1] defines a registry interface for the
   Trademark Claims or "claims" launch phase that includes support for
   presenting a Trademark Claims Notice to the Registrant.  This
   document proposes an extension to the domain name mapping in order to
   provide a uniform interface for the management of Launch Applications
   and Launch Registrations in launch phases.

1.1.  Conventions Used in This Document

   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 RFC 2119 [RFC2119].

   XML is case sensitive.  Unless stated otherwise, XML specifications
   and examples provided in this document MUST be interpreted in the
   character case presented in order to develop a conforming
   implementation.

   In examples, "C:" represents lines sent by a protocol client and "S:"
   represents lines returned by a protocol server.  Indentation and
   white space in examples are provided only to illustrate element
   relationships and are not a REQUIRED feature of this protocol.

   "launch-1.0" is used as an abbreviation for
   "urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:launch-1.0".  The XML namespace prefix
   "launch" is used, but implementations MUST NOT depend on it and
   instead employ a proper namespace-aware XML parser and serializer to
   interpret and output the XML documents.

   "signedMark-1.0" is used as an abbreviation for
   "urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:signedMark-1.0" that is defined in
   [draft-ietf-eppext-tmch-smd].  The XML namespace prefix "smd" is
   used, but implementations MUST NOT depend on it and instead employ a
   proper namespace-aware XML parser and serializer to interpret and
   output the XML documents.

   "mark-1.0" is used as an abbreviation for
   "urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:mark-1.0" that is defined in
   [draft-ietf-eppext-tmch-smd].  The XML namespace prefix "mark" is
   used, but implementations MUST NOT depend on it and instead employ a
   proper namespace-aware XML parser and serializer to interpret and
   output the XML documents.


2.  Object Attributes

   This extension adds additional elements to the EPP domain name
   mapping [RFC5731].  Only those new elements are described here.

2.1.  Application Identifier

   Servers MAY allow multiple applications, referred to as a Launch
   Application, of the same domain name during its launch phase
   operations.  Upon receiving a valid request to create a Launch
   Application, the server MUST create an application object
   corresponding to the request, assign an application identifier for
   the Launch Application, set the [RFC5731] pendingCreate status, and
   return the application identifier to the client with the <launch:
   applicationID> element.  In order to facilitate correlation, all
   subsequent launch operations on the Launch Application MUST be
   qualified by the previously assigned application identifier using the
   <launch:applicationID> element.

   If the <domain:create> command processes a request synchronously
   without the use of an intermediate Launch Application, then an
   application identifier MAY not be needed.

2.2.  Validator Identifier

   The Validator Identifier is the unique identifier for a Trademark
   Validator that validates marks and has a repository of validated

   marks.  The OPTIONAL "validatorID" attribute is used to define the
   Validator Identifier of the Trademark Validator.  Registries MAY
   support more than one Third Party Trademark Validator.  The Internet
   Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) Trademark
   Clearinghouse (TMCH) is the default Trademark Validator and is
   reserved the Validator Identifier of "tmch".  If the ICANN TMCH is
   not used or multiple Trademark Validators are used, the Validator
   Identifier MUST be defined using the "validatorID" attribute.

   The Validator Identifier MAY be related to one or more issuer
   identifiers of the <mark:id> element and the <smd:id> element defined
   in [draft-ietf-eppext-tmch-smd].  Both the Validator Identifier and
   the Issuer Identifier used MUST be unique.  The list of validator
   identifiers and the relationship to issuer identifiers is out of
   scope for this document.

2.3.  Launch Phases

   The server MAY support multiple launch phases sequentially or
   simultaneously.  The <launch:phase> element MUST be included by the
   client to define the target launch phase of the command.  The server
   SHOULD validate the phase and MAY validate the sub-phase of the
   <launch:phase> element against the active phase and OPTIONAL sub-
   phase of the server on a create command, and return an EPP error
   result code of 2306 if there is a mismatch.

   The following launch phase values are defined:
   sunrise  The phase during which trademark holders can submit
      registrations or applications with trademark information that can
      be validated by the server.
   landrush  A post-Sunrise phase when non-trademark holders are allowed
      to register domain names with steps taken to address a large
      volume of initial registrations.
   claims  The Trademark Claims phase, as defined in the TMCH Functional
      Specification [2], in which a Claims Notice must be displayed to a
      prospective registrant of a domain name that matches trademarks.
   open  A post-launch phase that is also referred to as "steady state".
      Servers MAY require additional trademark protection during this
      phase.
   custom  A custom server launch phase that is defined using the "name"
      attribute.

   For extensibility, the <launch:phase> element includes an OPTIONAL
   "name" attribute that can define a sub-phase or the full name of the
   phase when the <launch:phase> element has the "custom" value.  For
   example, the "claims" launch phase could have two sub-phases that
   include "landrush" and "open".

Internet-Draft        Launch Phase Mapping for EPP            March 2014


   Launch phases MAY overlap to support the "claims" launch phase,
   defined in the TMCH Functional Specification [2], and to support a
   traditional "landrush" launch phase.  The overlap of the "claims" and
   "landrush" launch phases SHOULD be handled by setting "claims" as the
   <launch:phase> value and setting "landrush" as the sub-phase with the
   "name" attribute.  For example, the <launch:phase> element SHOULD be
   <launch:phase name="landrush">claims</launch:phase>.

2.4.  Status Values

   A Launch Application or Launch Registration object MAY have a launch
   status value.  The <launch:status> element is used to convey the
   launch status pertaining to the object, beyond what is specified in
   the object mapping.  A Launch Application or Launch Registration MUST
   set the [RFC5731] "pendingCreate" status if a launch status is
   supported and the launch status is not one of the final statuses,
   including the "allocated" and "rejected" statuses.

   The following status values are defined using the required "s"
   attribute:
   pendingValidation:  The initial state of a newly-created application
      or registration object.  The application or registration requires
      validation, but the validation process has not yet completed.
   validated:  The application or registration meets relevant registry
      rules.
   invalid:  The application or registration does not validate according
      to registry rules.  Server policies permitting, it may transition
      back into "pendingValidation" for revalidation, after
      modifications are made to ostensibly correct attributes that
      caused the validation failure.
   pendingAllocation:  The allocation of the application or registration
      is pending based on the results of some out-of-band process (for
      example, an auction).
   allocated:  The object corresponding to the application or
      registration has been provisioned.  Is a possible end state of an
      application or registration object.
   rejected:  The application or registration object was not
      provisioned.  Is a possible end state of an application or
      registration object.
   custom:  A custom status that is defined using the "name" attribute.

   Each status value MAY be accompanied by a string of human-readable
   text that describes the rationale for the status applied to the
   object.  The OPTIONAL "lang" attribute MAY be present to identify the
   language if the negotiated value is something other than the default
   value of "en" (English).

   For extensibility the <launch:status> element includes an OPTIONAL

   "name" attribute that can define a sub-status or the full name of the
   status when the status value is "custom".  The server SHOULD NOT use
   the "custom" status value.

   Status values MAY be skipped.  For example, an application or
   registration MAY immediately start at the "allocated" status or an
   application or registration MAY skip the "pendingAllocation" status.
   If the launch phase does not require validation of a request, an
   application or registration MAY immediately skip to
   "pendingAllocation".

2.5.  Poll Messaging

   A Launch Application MUST and a Launch Registration MAY be handled as
   a domain name of [RFC5731] in "pendingCreate" status, with the launch
   status values defined in Section 2.4.  As a Launch Application or
   Launch Registration transitions between the status values defined in
   Section 2.4, the server SHOULD insert poll messages, per [RFC5730],
   for the applicable intermediate statuses, including the
   "pendingValidation", "validated", "pendingAllocation, and "invalid"
   statuses, using the <domain:infData> element with the <launch:
   infData> extension.  The <domain:infData> element MAY contain non-
   mandatory information, like contact and name server information.
   Also, further extensions that would normally be included in the
   response of a <domain:info> command, per [RFC5731], MAY be included.
   For the final statuses, including the "allocated" and "rejected"
   statuses, the server MUST insert a <domain:panData> poll message, per
   [RFC5731], with the <launch:infData> extension.

2.6.  Mark Validation Models

   A server MUST support at least one of the following models for
   validating trademark information:

   code  Use of a mark code by itself to validate that the mark matches
      the domain name.  This model is supported using the <launch:
      codeMark> element with just the <launch:code> element.





Gould, et al.          Expires September 18, 2014              [Page 13]

Internet-Draft        Launch Phase Mapping for EPP            March 2014


   mark  The mark information is passed without any other validation
      element.  The server will use some custom form of validation to
      validate that the mark information is authentic.  This model is
      supported using the <launch:codeMark> element with just the <mark:
      mark> (Section 2.6.2) element.
   code with mark:  A code is used along with the mark information by
      the server to validate the mark utilizing an external party.  The
      code represents some form of secret that matches the mark
      information passed.  This model is supported using the <launch:
      codeMark> element that contains both the <launch:code> and the
      <mark:mark> (Section 2.6.2) elements.
   signed mark:  The mark information is digitally signed as described
      in the Digital Signature (Section 2.6.3) section.  The digital
      signature can be directly validated by the server using the public
      key of the external party that created the signed mark using its
      private key.  This model is supported using the <smd:signedMark>
      (Section 2.6.3.1) and <smd:encodedSignedMark> (Section 2.6.3.2)
      elements.

   More than one <launch:codeMark>, <smd:signedMark> (Section 2.6.3.1),
   or <smd:encodedSignedMark> (Section 2.6.3.2) element MAY be
   specified.  The maximum number of marks per domain name is up to
   server policy.

2.6.1.  <launch:codeMark> element

   The <launch:codeMark> element that is used by the "code", "mark", and
   "code with mark" validation models, has the following child elements:

   <launch:code>:  OPTIONAL mark code used to validate the <mark:mark>
      (Section 2.6.2) information.  The mark code is be a mark-specific
      secret that the server can verify against a third party.  The
      OPTIONAL "validatorID" attribute is the Validator Identifier
      (Section 2.2) whose value indicates which Trademark Validator that
      the code originated from, with no default value.
   <mark:mark>:  OPTIONAL mark information with child elements defined
      in the Mark (Section 2.6.2) section.

   The following is an example <launch:codeMark> element with both a
   <launch:code> and <mark:mark> (Section 2.6.2) element.

   <launch:codeMark>
     <launch:code validatorID="sample">
       49FD46E6C4B45C55D4AC</launch:code>
     <mark:mark xmlns:mark="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:mark-1.0">
       ...
     </mark:mark>
   </launch:codeMark>

Internet-Draft        Launch Phase Mapping for EPP            March 2014


2.6.2.  <mark:mark> element

   A <mark:mark> element describes an applicant's prior right to a given
   domain name that is used with the "mark", "mark with code", and the
   "signed mark" validation models.  The <mark:mark> element is defined
   in [draft-ietf-eppext-tmch-smd].  A new mark format can be supported
   by creating a new XML schema for the mark that has an element that
   substitutes for the <mark:abstractMark> element from
   [draft-ietf-eppext-tmch-smd].

2.6.3.  Digital Signature

   Digital signatures MAY be used by the server to validate either the
   mark information, when using the "signed mark" validation model with
   the <smd:signedMark> (Section 2.6.3.1) element or the <smd:
   encodedSignedMark> (Section 2.6.3.2) element.

2.6.3.1.  <smd:signedMark> element

   The <smd:signedMark> element contains the digitally signed mark
   information.  The <smd:signedMark> element is defined in
   [draft-ietf-eppext-tmch-smd].  A new signed mark format can be
   supported by creating a new XML schema for the signed mark that has
   an element that substitutes for the <smd:abstractSignedMark> element
   from [draft-ietf-eppext-tmch-smd].

2.6.3.2.  <smd:encodedSignedMark> element

   The <smd:encodedSignedMark> element contains an encoded form of the
   digitally signed <smd:signedMark> (Section 2.6.3.1) element.  The
   <smd:encodedSignedMark> element is defined in
   [draft-ietf-eppext-tmch-smd].  A new encoded signed mark format can
   be supported by creating a new XML schema for the encoded signed mark
   that has an element that substitutes for the <smd:encodedSignedMark>
   element from [draft-ietf-eppext-tmch-smd].


3.  EPP Command Mapping

   A detailed description of the EPP syntax and semantics can be found
   in the EPP core protocol specification [RFC5730].  The command
   mappings described here are specifically for use in the Launch Phase
   Extension.

   This mapping is designed to be flexible, requiring only a minimum set
   of required elements.

   While it is meant to serve several use cases, it does not prescribe

   any interpretation by the client or server.  Such processing is
   typically highly policy-dependent and therefore specific to
   implementations.

   Operations on application objects are done via one or more of the
   existing EPP verbs defined in the EPP domain name mapping [RFC5731].
   Registries MAY choose to support a subset of the operations.

3.1.  EPP <check> Command

   There are two forms of the extension to the EPP <check> command: the
   Claims Check Form (Section 3.1.1) and the Availability Check Form
   (Section 3.1.2).  The <launch:check> element "type" attribute defines
   the form, with the value of "claims" for the Claims Check Form
   (Section 3.1.1) and with the value of "avail" for the Availability
   Check Form (Section 3.1.2).  The default value of the "type"
   attribute is "claims".  The forms supported by the server is
   determined by server policy.  The server MUST return an EPP error
   result code of 2307 if it receives a check form that is not
   supported.

3.1.1.  Claims Check Form

   The Claims Check Form defines a new command called the Claims Check
   Command that is used to determine whether or not there are any
   matching trademarks, in the specified launch phase, for each domain
   name passed in the command.  The availability check information
   defined in the EPP domain name mapping [RFC5731] MUST NOT be returned
   for the Claims Check Command.  This form is the default form and MAY
   be explicitly identified by setting the <launch:check> "type"
   attribute to "claims".

   Instead of returning whether the domain name is available, the Claims
   Check Command will return whether or not at least one matching
   trademark exists for the domain name.  If there is at least one
   matching trademark that exists for the domain name, a <launch:
   claimKey> element is returned.  The client MAY then use the value of
   the <launch:claimKey> element to obtain information needed to
   generate the Trademark Claims Notice from Trademark Validator based
   on the Validator Identifier (Section 2.2).  The unique notice
   identifier of the Trademark Claims Notice MUST be passed in the
   <launch:noticeID> element of the extension to the Create Command
   (Section 3.3).

   The <domain:name> elements in the EPP <check> command of EPP domain
   name mapping [RFC5731] define the domain names to check for matching
   trademarks.  The <launch:check> element contains the following child
   elements:



Gould, et al.          Expires September 18, 2014              [Page 16]

Internet-Draft        Launch Phase Mapping for EPP            March 2014


   <launch:phase>  The launch phase that SHOULD be "claims".

   Example Claims Check command using the <check> domain command and the
   <launch:check> extension with the "type" explicitly set to "claims",
   to determine if "example1.tld" and "example2.tld" have any matching
   trademarks during the "claims" launch phase:

   C:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
   C:<epp xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp-1.0">
   C:  <command>
   C:   <check>

   C:   </extension>
   C:   <clTRID>ABC-12345</clTRID>
   C:  </command>
   C:</epp>

   If the <check> command has been processed successfully, the EPP
   <response> MUST contain an <extension> <launch:chkData> element that
   identifies the launch namespace.  The <launch:chkData> element
   contains the following child elements:

   <launch:phase>  The launch phase that SHOULD be "claims".
   <launch:cd>  One or more <launch:cd> elements that contain the
       following child elements:

       <launch:name>  Contains the fully qualified name of the queried
           domain name.  This element MUST contain an "exists" attribute
           whose value indicates if a matching trademark exists for the
           domain name.  A value of "1" (or "true") means that a
           matching trademark does exist for the claims launch phase.  A
           value of "0" (or "false") means that a matching trademark
           does not exist.

       <launch:claimKey>  An OPTIONAL claim key that MAY be passed to a
           third-party trademark validator such as the Trademark
           Clearinghouse (TMCH) for querying the information needed to
           generate a Trademark Claims Notice.  The <launch:claimKey> is
           used as the key for the query in place of the domain name to
           securely query the service without using a well-known value
           like a domain name.  The OPTIONAL "validatorID" attribute is
           the Validator Identifier (Section 2.2) whose value indicates
           which Trademark Validator to query for the Claims Notice
           information, with the default being the ICANN TMCH.

   Example Claims Check response when no matching trademarks are found
   for the domain name example1.tld and matching trademarks are found
   for the domain name example2.tld for the "claims" launch phase:

3.1.2.  Availability Check Form

   The Availability Check Form defines additional elements to extend the
   EPP <check> command described in the EPP domain name mapping
   [RFC5731].  No additional elements are defined for the EPP <check>



Gould, et al.          Expires September 18, 2014              [Page 18]

   response.  This form MUST be identified by setting the <launch:check>
   "type" attribute to "avail".

   The EPP <check> command is used to determine if an object can be
   provisioned within a repository.  Domain names may be made available
   only in unique launch phases, whilst remaining unavailable for
   concurrent launch phases.  In addition to the elements expressed in
   the <domain:check>, the command is extended with the <launch:check>
   element that contains the following child elements:

   <launch:phase>  The launch phase to which domain name availability
       should be determined.

   Example Availability Check Form command using the <check> domain
   command and the <launch:check> extension with the "type" set to
   "avail", to determine the availability of two domain names in the
   "idn-release" custom launch phase:

   C:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
   C:<epp xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp-1.0">

   C:   </extension>
   C:   <clTRID>ABC-12345</clTRID>
   C:  </command>
   C:</epp>

   The Availability Check Form does not define any extension to the
   response of an <check> domain command.  After processing the command,
   the server replies with a standard EPP response as defined in the EPP
   domain name mapping [RFC5731].

3.2.  EPP <info> Command

   This extension defines additional elements to extend the EPP <info>
   command and response to be used in conjunction with the EPP domain

   name mapping [RFC5731].

   The EPP <info> command is used to retrieve information for a launch
   phase registration or application.  The Application Identifier
   (Section 2.1) returned in the <launch:creData> element of the create
   response (Section 3.3) is used for retrieving information for a

Internet-Draft        Launch Phase Mapping for EPP            March 2014


3.3.  EPP <create> Command

   There are four forms of the extension to the EPP <create> command
   that include the Sunrise Create Form (Section 3.3.1), the Claims
   Create Form (Section 3.3.2), the General Create Form (Section 3.3.3),
   and the Mixed Create Form (Section 3.3.4).  The form is dependent on
   the supported launch phases (Section 2.3) as defined below.

   sunrise  The EPP <create> command with the "sunrise" launch phase is
      used to submit a registration with trademark information that can
      be verified by the server with the <domain:name> value.  The
      Sunrise Create Form (Section 3.3.1) is used for the "sunrise"
      launch phase.
   landrush  The EPP <create> command with the "landrush" launch phase
      MAY use the General Create Form (Section 3.3.3) to explicitly
      specify the phase and optionally define the expected type of
      object to create.
   claims  The EPP <create> command with the "claims" launch phase is
      used to pass the information associated with the presentation and
      acceptance of the Claims Notice.  The Claims Create Form
      (Section 3.3.2) is used and the General Create Form
      (Section 3.3.3) MAY be used for the "claims" launch phase.
   open  The EPP <create> command with the "open" launch phase is
      undefined but the form supported is up to server policy.
   custom  The EPP <create> command with the "custom" launch phase is
      undefined but the form supported is up to server policy.

3.3.1.  Sunrise Create Form

   The Sunrise Create Form of the extension to the EPP domain name
   mapping [RFC5731] includes the verifiable trademark information that
   the server uses to match against the domain name to authorize the
   domain create.  A server MUST support one of four models in Claim
   Validation Models (Section 2.6) to verify the trademark information
   passed by the client.

   A <launch:create> element is sent along with the regular <create>
   domain command.  The <launch:create> element has an OPTIONAL "type"
   attribute that defines the expected type of object ("application" or
   "registration") to create.  The server SHOULD validate the "type"
   attribute, when passed, against the type of object that will be
   created.  The <launch:create> element contains the following child
   elements:

3.3.3.  General Create Form

   The General Create Form of the extension to the EPP domain name
   mapping [RFC5731] includes the launch phase and optionally the object
   type to create.  The OPTIONAL "type" attribute defines the expected
   type of object ("application" or "registration") to create.  The
   server SHOULD validate the "type" attribute, when passed, against the
   type of object that will be created.

   A <launch:create> element is sent along with the regular <create>
   domain command.  The <launch:create> element contains the following
   child elements:

Internet-Draft        Launch Phase Mapping for EPP            March 2014


   <launch:phase>  Contains the value of the active launch phase of the
       server.  The server SHOULD validate the value against the active
       server launch phase.

   The following is an example <create> domain command using the
   <launch:create> extension for a "landrush" launch phase application:

3.3.4.  Mixed Create Form

   The Mixed Create Form supports a mix of the create forms, where for
   example the Sunrise Create Form (Section 3.3.1) and the Claims Create
   Form (Section 3.3.2) MAY be supported in a single command by
   including both the verified trademark information and the information
   related to the registrant's acceptance of the Claims Notice.  The
   server MAY support the Mixed Create Form.  The "custom" launch phase
   SHOULD be used when using the Mixed Create Form.

3.3.5.  Create Response

   If the create was successful, the server MAY reply with the <launch:
   creData> element along with the regular EPP <resData> to indicate the
   server generated Application Identifier (Section 2.1), when multiple
   applications of a given domain name are supported; otherwise no
   extension is included with the regular EPP <resData>.  The <launch:
   creData> element contains the following child elements:

   <launch:phase>  The phase of the application that mirrors the
       <launch:phase> element included in the <launch:create>.
   <launch:applicationID>  The application identifier of the
       application.

3.4.  EPP <update> Command

   This extension defines additional elements to extend the EPP <update>
   command to be used in conjunction with the domain name mapping.

   A client MUST NOT pass the extension on an EPP <update> command to a
   server that does not support launch applications.  A server that does
   not support launch applications during its launch phase MUST return
   an EPP error result code of 2102 when receiving an EPP <update>
   command with the extension.

   Registry policies permitting, clients may update an application
   object by submitting an EPP <update> command along with a <launch:
   update> element to indicate the application object to be updated.
   The <launch:update> element contains the following child elements:

   <launch:phase>  The phase during which the application was submitted
       or is associated with.
   <launch:applicationID>  The application identifier for which the
       client wishes to update.

           <tmNotice:notAfter> element.

6.9.  Change from 08 to 09

       passing just the <launch:phase> in <launch:create> per request
       from Ben Levac.

       client to explicitly define the desired type of object
       (application or registration) to create to all forms of the
       create extension.
   3.  Added text that the server SHOULD validate the <launch:phase>

   6.  Replaced the "claims1" and "claims2" phases with the "claims"
       phase based on discussion on the provreg list.
   7.  Added support for a mixed create model (Sunrise Create Model and

       etc.) and notice can be passed, based on a request from James
       Mitchell.
   8.  Added text for the handling of the overlapping "claims" and
       "landrush" launch phases.
   9.  Added support for two check forms (claims check form and
       availability check form) based on a request from James Mitchell.
       The availability check form was based on the text in
       draft-rbp-application-epp-mapping.

            "extension to the domain name mapping".
       2.   Changed use of 2004 return code to 2306 return code when
            phase passed mismatches active phase and sub-phase.
       3.   Changed description of "allocated" and "rejected" statuses.
       4.   Moved sentence on a synchronous <domain:create> command
            without the use of an intermediate application, then an
            Application Identifier MAY not be needed to the Application
            Identifier section.

       5.   Restructured the Mark Validation Models section to include
            the "<launch:codeMark> element" sub-section, the "<mark:
            mark> element" sub-section, and the Digital Signature sub-
            section.
       6.   Changed "Registries may" to "Registries MAY".
       7.   Changed "extensed" to "extended" in "Availability Check
            Form" section.
       8.   Broke the mix of create forms in the "EPP <create> Command"

            "Security Considerations" section to 2201 (authorization
            error).
       12.  Added arrow from "invalid" status to "pendingValidation"
            status and "pendingAllocation" status to "rejected" status
            in the State Transition Diagram.

       "Conventions Used in This Document" section.

6.11.  Change from 10 to 11

       the <extension> element instead of the <resData> element based on
       the request from Francisco Obispo.

6.12.  Change from 11 to 12

   1.  Added support for multiple validator identifiers for claims
       notices and marks based on a request and text provided by Mike
       O'Connell.

       Wodjenski on the provreg list.

6.13.  Change from 12 to WG 00

   1.  Changed to eppext working group draft by changing
       draft-tan-epp-launchphase to draft-ietf-eppext-launchphase and by

Internet-Draft        Launch Phase Mapping for EPP            March 2014


6.14.  Change WG 00 to WG 01

   1.  Removed text associated with support for the combining of status
       values based on feedback from Patrick Mevzek on the provreg
       mailing list, discussion on the eppext mailing list, and
       discussion at the eppext IETF meeting on March 6, 2014.


7.  IANA Considerations

   This document uses URNs to describe XML namespaces and XML schemas
   conforming to a registry mechanism described in [RFC3688].  One URI
   assignment has been registered by the IANA.

   Registration request for the Launch namespace:

      URI: urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:launch-1.0
      Registrant Contact: See the "Author's Address" section of this
      document.
      XML: None.  Namespace URIs do not represent an XML specification.


8.  Security Considerations

   The mapping extensions described in this document do not provide any
   security services beyond those described by EPP [RFC5730], the EPP
   domain name mapping [RFC5731], and protocol layers used by EPP.  The
   security considerations described in these other specifications apply
   to this specification as well.

   Updates to, and deletion of an application object must be restricted
   to clients authorized to perform the said operation on the object.

   As information contained within an application, or even the mere fact
   that an application exists may be confidential.  Any attempt to
   operate on an application object by an unauthorized client MUST be
   rejected with an EPP 2201 (authorization error) return code.  Server
   policy may allow <info> operation with filtered output by clients
   other than the sponsoring client, in which case the <domain:infData>
   and <launch:infData> response SHOULD be filtered to include only
   fields that are publicly accessible.


9.  Normative References

              Requirement Levels", BCP 14, RFC 2119, March 1997.
