Abstract

   This document defines the syntax as well as the semantics of the
   information to be included in the phone book for roaming
   applications.  It comprises the information necessary to select the
   most appropriate ISP and to configure the host to get access to the
   network of the provider. The specification consists of a small set of
   required information elements and a variety of possible extensions.
   All data is specified in XML [5] (Extensible Markup Language) syntax
   leading to a concise XML DTD (Document Type Declaration) for the
   phone book.

1.  Introduction

   Roaming applications depend on the delivery of information about
   provided services and the procedures to get connected to the network
   from the roaming consortium to the individual users as well as from
   the operators of the network access servers, normally the members of
   the roaming consortium, and the roaming consortium.

    | ISP# | -- |   | --+    Consortium
    |      |    +---+
    +------+

   The roaming consortium assembles from the individual contributions of
   the providers belonging to the consortium a unified version of the
   phone book for usage by the customers.  Probably different groups of
   users get different versions of a phone book adapted to their
   particular needs.  Even users might generate different subsets
   especially suited to particular applications from the information
   received from the roaming consortium, e.g., retrieving only entries
   for a particular country or extracting all access points providing
   wireless connectivity.






Riegel & Zorn               Standards Track                     [Page 3]

RFC 3017           Roaming Access Phone Book XML DTD       December 2000


   Therefore it is desirable to define a highly portable and well formed
   structure of the phone book to enable easy generation and
   postprocessing.  Goals of this document include:

      - Creating a flexible, extensible and robust framework
        upon which to build a standard phone book;
      - Promoting a standard phone book format, to enhance
        interoperability between ISPs and roaming consortia as
        well as to enable automatic extraction of configuration
        data by a wide variety of devices;
      - Defining a compact structure containing the essential
        information for the roaming user, to allow for storage
        and easy update even on small devices.

   It is not intended by this document to create a plethoric solution,
   with phone book elements to fit every condition on earth, neither to
   define any kind of phone book update or transfer protocol.

2.  Rationale for XML Usage

   XML is rapidly becoming a standard format for data exchange between
   different applications also taking into account the transfer and
   access of data over the web.  XML is used as syntax for expressing
   the structure and content of a roaming phone book to enable
   widespread usage and access to many different kind of media (e.g.,
   paper, CDROM, www) using a widespread selection of access devices.
   Furthermore XML enables:

      - Extensibility
      - Flexibility
      - Integration with directories

   Extensibility is important because phone books are living documents;
   as such, it is unlikely that all the semantic requirements of
   arbitrary Internet service providers (ISPs) would be met by a fixed
   scheme, no matter how well thought out.  Phone book designers must be
   free to create new attributes in a well-understood fashion to meet
   changing business needs.

   Flexibility is required of the attribute definition syntax for many
   of the same reasons that semantic extensibility is necessary.  If we
   assume that phone book designers may need to define elements of
   arbitrary type, the syntax chosen must be able to represent these
   data objects cleanly.  Using XML for describing the data content of
   the phone book fits this bill nicely, since it can be used to
   unambiguously describe virtually any data type.





Riegel & Zorn               Standards Track                     [Page 4]

RFC 3017           Roaming Access Phone Book XML DTD       December 2000


   Integration with directories: although it is unlikely that phone
   books will be stored in the directory due to performance
   considerations, the creation of a XML DTD describing phone book
   content leaves that option open, with relatively little incremental
   effort required to implement it.

3.  Specification of Requirements

   In this document, the key words "MAY", "MUST, "MUST NOT", "optional",
   "recommended", "SHOULD", and "SHOULD NOT", are to be interpreted as
   described in [1].

4.  Value type notations for 'stronger' typing

   XML DTDs do not currently have capabilities for 'strong typing' of
   the content of elements.  The only type definition foreseen in the
   base specification is "#PCDATA", 'parsable character data'.  This
   might be sufficient and is used throughout this document to define
   elements containing information mainly aimed for interpretation by
   human beings.

   To enable a more concise description of the content of particular
   elements several value type notations are introduced.  This allows
   for a more detailed type description of the content of elements in
   cases where it seems to be desirable.

5.  Container Element Definitions

5.1.  PhoneBook

   The phoneBook element is the basic container for phone book entries.
   It has two attributes, a phone book name and a phone book version
   number (applying to the phone book as a whole), and always contains
   one or more pop elements.  A phoneBook element may also contain
   multiple Setup, Support and Provider elements, if they are referenced
   to by more than one pop element.

5.1.1.  phoneBook Attribute "name"

   The phoneBook attribute "name" is an arbitrary string assigned as an
   identifier for a phone book.

5.1.2.  phoneBook Attribute "version"

   The phoneBookVersion attribute is an integer representing the version
   of the phone book; it is a monotonically increasing counter which
   should be incremented each time the phone book is modified.  This
   element can be used by a server to help decide what (if any) actions
   are required to bring a client's phone book up to date.  For example,
   the client can, at connect time, send an update request to the server



Riegel & Zorn               Standards Track                     [Page 6]

RFC 3017           Roaming Access Phone Book XML DTD       December 2000


   including in the request the version number of its current phone
   book.  If the client's phone book version is not the same as the
   server's current phone book version, the server can easily take
   appropriate action, e.g., reply with a URL pointing to a file
   containing the differences between the client and server phone books.

5.2.  POP

   The pop element contains information elements relevant to individual
   network points of presence (POPs).  The required information elements
   are addrFamily, address, media and entryVersion.  The media element
   represents the media types supported by the POP, while the
   entryVersion element is a monotonically-increasing integer which
   should be incremented whenever the object is modified.

   The following information elements are currently defined for the pop
   element.  Additional information elements may be defined by IANA in
   future.

5.2.1.  pop Attribute "entryVersion"

   The entryVersion attribute is an integer representing the version of
   the POP object; it is a monotonically increasing counter which should
   be incremented each time the object is modified.  This attribute may
   be useful in merging and updating phone books.

5.3.  Setup

   The Setup element includes information elements which describe
   services which may change from provider to provider or even from POP
   to POP.  Some of the values contained in these information elements
   may be available by other means (e.g., DHCP), but others may not.

   The following information elements are currently defined for the
   Setup element.  Additional information elements may be defined by
   IANA in future.

   Syntax:

      <!ENTITY % setupInformation

5.4.  Support

   The Support element includes those information elements that are
   pertinent to the provision of customer support for a POP or provider.
   Languages spoken by the staff at the support center might be
   specified by multiple entries for the attribute value language.

   Additional information elements for the Support element may be
   defined by IANA in future.

   Syntax:
      <!ENTITY % supportInformation
           "(supportTelephoneNumber | supportMailtoURL)+">

            language    NMTOKENS   #IMPLIED >

5.5.  Provider

   The Provider element contains information elements pertaining to the
   general business operations of a given network service provider.  The
   information elements include such things as telephone number, mailing
   address, etc., as well as URLs for e-mail and a World Wide Web site.
   A Provider element may also contain a reference to support
   information.

   Currently the following information elements are defined for the
   Provider element.  Additional information elements may be defined by
   IANA in future.

   Syntax:

   This URL could be used to for correspondence regarding billing and
   payment issues.

8.  Security Considerations

   The secure distribution and transport of information of a phone book
   for roaming applications require a reliable authentication of the
   issuer of the information as well as means to preserve the integrity
   of the provided information.

   No specific elements for security requirements are provided by the
   phone book XML DTD itself.  It is assumed that security of the
   roaming phone book is provided by means outside of the scope of this
   specification, such as signing the phone book using pgp.

9.  IANA Considerations

   This specification provides the possibility to define further
   attribute values for all information elements owning enumerated
   attribute lists as well as to extend the main structures 'pop',
   'setup', 'support' and 'provider' by additional information elements.
   Therefore the specification of the roaming phone book can be adopted
   to future requirements without changing this document.  Extensions
   and refinements to this specification can be achieved by registration
   of new elements and attributes by IANA.

   Extending this specification with additional attributes or elements
   must not change the validity of documents based on an older version
   of the XML DTD.  Therefore all added information elements must be



Riegel & Zorn               Standards Track                    [Page 28]

RFC 3017           Roaming Access Phone Book XML DTD       December 2000


   optional, prohibiting the mandatory inclusion of newly defined
   information elements.  Adding new values to enumerated attribute
   lists has no backward compatibility constraints because it does not
   harm the validity of attributes already defined.

   To facilitate the registration of new information elements and
   attribute values the DTD of the phone book has been separated in two
   parts, the extensible part containing only parameter entity
   declarations for ease inclusion of new values, and the fixed part
   containing the detailed specification of the content and structure of
   the phone book.  By referencing the parameter entity declarations in
   the fixed part of the specification the whole phone book becomes
   extensible.

   The part containing the parameter entity declarations has to be
   maintained by the IANA.  There are two different classes of
   declarations in this part requiring different policies for
   registering new values.

9.1.  Registration of new attribute values

   The entities 'addressFamily', 'modemProtocols', 'isdnProtocols',
   'atmProtocols', 'frProtocols', 'x25Protocols', 'popProperties' and
   'tunnelingProtocols' are describing enumerated attribute value lists.
   Because there is no limitation in the name space of these attribute
   values and newly defined attribute values can not harm the validity
   of existing values, new attribute values can be assigned by
   Specification Required [6].

9.2.  Registration of new information elements

   The entities 'mediaTypes', 'popInformation', 'setupInformation', '
   supportInformation' and 'providerInformation' define the information
   elements probably included in the media, pop, setup, support and
   provider elements.  Inserting new values into these lists extends the
   phone book by arbitrarily new information elements.  Inappropriate
   use of the XML content model can destroy the backward compatibility
   of the DTD.  Therefore the assignment of new information elements
   requires the approval of a Designated Expert [6].  In addition to the
   insertion of a new value into the list, the detailed definition of
   the information element has to be appended to the specification part
   maintained by the IANA.
