  Allocation Token Extension for the Extensible Provisioning Protocol
                                 (EPP)
                 draft-ietf-regext-allocation-token-01

Abstract

   This document describes an Extensible Provisioning Protocol (EPP)
   extension for including an allocation token or code for allocating an
   object like a domain name to the client.  The allocation token MAY be
   transferred out-of-band to a client to give them authorization to
   allocate an object using one of the EPP transform commands including
   create, update, and transfer.

1.  Introduction

   This document describes an extension mapping for version 1.0 of the
   Extensible Provisioning Protocol (EPP) [RFC5730].  This mapping, an
   extension to EPP object mappings like the EPP domain name mapping
   [RFC5731], for passing an allocation token one of the EPP transform
   commands including create, update, and transfer.  The allocation
   token is known to the server to authorize a client that passes a
   matching allocation token with one of the supported EPP transform
   commands.  It is up to server policy which EPP transform commands and

Internet-Draft               allocationToken                  April 2017


   which objects support the allocation token.  The allocation token MAY
   be returned to an authorized client for passing out-of-band to a
   client that uses it with an EPP transform command.

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.

   "allocationToken-1.0" is used as an abbreviation for
   "urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:allocationToken-1.0".  The XML namespace
   prefix "allocationToken" 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 EPP object mappings like
   the EPP domain name mapping [RFC5731].  Only those new elements are
   described here.

2.1.  Allocation Token

   The Allocation Token is a simple XML "token" type.  The exact format
   of the Allocation Token is up to server policy.  The server MUST have
   the allocation token for each object to match against the allocation
   token passed by the client to authorize the allocation of the object.
   The same <allocationToken:allocationToken> element is used for all of
   the supported EPP transform commands as well as the info response.
   If an invalid allocation token is passed the server MUST return an
   EPP error result code of 2201.

   An example <allocationToken:allocationToken> element with value of
   "abc123":

   <allocationToken:allocationToken xmlns:allocationToken=
             "urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:allocationToken-1.0">
     abc123
   </allocationToken:allocationToken>

3.  EPP Command Mapping

   A detailed description of the EPP syntax and semantics can be found
   in the EPP core protocol specification [RFC5730].

3.1.  EPP Query Commands

   EPP provides three commands to retrieve object information: <check>
   to determine if an object is known to the server, <info> to retrieve
   detailed information associated with an object, and <transfer> to
   retrieve object transfer status information.

3.1.1.  EPP <check> Command

   This extension defines additional elements to extend the EPP <check>
   command of an object mapping like [RFC5731].

   This extension allow clients to check the availability of an object
   with an allocation token, as described in Section 2.1.  Clients can
   check if an object can be created using the allocation token.  The
   allocation token is applied to all object names included in the EPP
   <check> command.

   Example <check> command for the example.tld domain name using the
   <allocationToken:allocationToken> extension with the allocation token
   of 'abc123':

   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:      <domain:check
   C:       xmlns:domain="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:domain-1.0">
   C:        <domain:name>example.tld</domain:name>
   C:      </domain:check>
   C:    </check>
   C:    <extension>
   C:      <allocationToken:allocationToken

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

   If the query was successful, the server replies with an <check>
   response providing availability status of queried object.

   S: </response>
   S:</epp>

   This extension does not add any elements to the EPP <check> response
   described in the [RFC5730].

3.1.2.  EPP <info> Command

   This extension defines additional elements to extend the EPP <info>
   command of an object mapping like [RFC5731].

   The EPP <info> command allows a client to request information on an
   existing object.  Authorized clients MAY retrieve the allocation
   token (Section 2.1) along with the other object information using the
   <allocationToken:info> element that identifies the extension
   namespace.  The <allocationToken:info> element is an empty element
   that serves as a marker to the server to return the
   <allocationToken:allocationToken> element, defined in Section 2.1, in
   the info response.  If the client is not authorized to receive the
   allocation token (Section 2.1), the server MUST return an EPP error
   result code of 2201.  If the client is authorized to receive the

   allocation token (Section 2.1), but there is no allocation token
   (Section 2.1) associated with the object, the server MUST return an
   EPP error result code of 2303 object referencing the
   <allocationToken:info> element.

   Example <info> command with the allocationToken:info extension for
   the example.tld domain name:

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

   If the query was successful, the server replies with an
   <allocationToken:allocationToken> element, as described in
   Section 2.1.

3.2.  EPP Transform Commands

   EPP provides five commands to transform objects: <create> to create
   an instance of an object, <delete> to delete an instance of an
   object, <renew> to extend the validity period of an object,
   <transfer> to manage object sponsorship changes, and <update> to
   change information associated with an object.

3.2.1.  EPP <create> Command

   This extension defines additional elements to extend the EPP <create>
   command of an object mapping like [RFC5731].

   The EPP <create> command provides a transform operation that allows a
   client to create an object.  In addition to the EPP command elements
   described in an object mapping like [RFC5731], the command MUST
   contain a child <allocationToken:allocationToken> element, as defined
   in Section 2.1, that identifies the extension namespace for the
   client to be authorized to create and allocate the object.  If the
   allocation token (Section 2.1) does not match the object's allocation
   token (Section 2.1), the server MUST return an EPP error result code
   of 2201.:

   This extension does not add any elements to the EPP <create> response
   described in the [RFC5730].

3.2.2.  EPP <delete> Command

   This extension does not add any elements to the EPP <delete> command
   or <delete> response described in the [RFC5730].

3.2.3.  EPP <renew> Command

   This extension does not add any elements to the EPP <renew> command
   or <renew> response described in the [RFC5730].

3.2.4.  EPP <transfer> Command

   This extension defines additional elements to extend the EPP
   <transfer> request command of an object mapping like [RFC5731].

Internet-Draft               allocationToken                  April 2017


   The EPP <transfer> request command provides a transform operation
   that allows a client to request the transfer of an object.  In
   addition to the EPP command elements described in an object mapping
   like [RFC5731], the command MUST contain a child
   <allocationToken:allocationToken> element, as defined in Section 2.1,
   that identifies the extension namespace for the client to be
   authorized to transfer and allocate the object.  If the allocation
   token (Section 2.1) does not match the object's allocation token
   (Section 2.1), the server MUST return an EPP error result code of
   2201.:

   Example <transfer> request command to allocate the domain object with
   the allocation token:

   C:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
   C:<epp xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp-1.0">
   C:  <command>
   C:    <transfer op="request">
   C:      <domain:transfer
   C:        xmlns:domain="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:domain-1.0">
   C:        <domain:name>example1.tld</domain:name>
   C:        <domain:period unit="y">1</domain:period>
   C:        <domain:authInfo>
   C:          <domain:pw>2fooBAR</domain:pw>
   C:        </domain:authInfo>
   C:      </domain:transfer>
   C:    </transfer>
   C:    <extension>
   C:      <allocationToken:allocationToken
   C:        xmlns:allocationToken=
   C:          "urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:allocationToken-1.0">
   C:        abc123
   C:      </allocationToken:allocationToken>
   C:    </extension>
   C:    <clTRID>ABC-12345</clTRID>
   C:  </command>
   C:</epp>

   This extension does not add any elements to the EPP <transfer>
   response described in the [RFC5730].

3.2.5.  EPP <update> Command

   This extension defines additional elements to extend an extension of
   an empty EPP <update> command of an object mapping like [RFC5731].
   An example of an extension of an empty EPP <update> command is the
   definition of the restore command within [RFC3915].

Internet-Draft               allocationToken                  April 2017


   An extension of an empty EPP <update> command defines a new verb that
   transforms an object.  In addition to the EPP command elements
   described in an object mapping like [RFC5731], the command MUST
   contain a child <allocationToken:allocationToken> element, as defined
   in Section 2.1, that identifies the extension namespace for the
   client to be authorized to allocate the object.  If the allocation
   token (Section 2.1) does not match the object's allocation token
   (Section 2.1), the server MUST return an EPP error result code of
   2201.:

   Example use an extension of an empty <update> command to release a
   domain object with an allocation token:

   C:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
   C:<epp xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp-1.0">
   C:  <command>
   C:    <update>
   C:      <domain:update
   C:        xmlns:domain="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:domain-1.0">
   C:        <domain:name>example1.tld</domain:name>
   C:      </domain:update>
   C:    </update>
   C:    <extension>
   C:      <release:release
   C:        xmlns:release="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:release-1.0"/>
   C:      <allocationToken:allocationToken
   C:        xmlns:allocationToken=
   C:          "urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:allocationToken-1.0">
   C:        abc123
   C:      </allocationToken:allocationToken>
   C:    </extension>
   C:    <clTRID>ABC-12345-XYZ</clTRID>
   C:  </command>
   C:</epp>

   This extension does not add any elements to the EPP <update> response
   described in the [RFC5730].

4.  Formal Syntax

   One schema is presented here that is the EPP Allocation Token
   Extension schema.

   The formal syntax presented here is a complete schema representation
   of the object mapping suitable for automated validation of EPP XML
   instances.  The BEGIN and END tags are not part of the schema; they
   are used to note the beginning and ending of the schema for URI
   registration purposes.
