Status of This Memo

      This document is an Internet-Draft.  Internet-Drafts are working
      documents of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), its
      areas, and its working groups.  Note that other groups may also
      distribute working documents as Internet-Drafts.

      Internet-Drafts are draft documents valid for a maximum of six
      months and may be updated, replaced, or obsoleted by other
      documents at any time.  It is inappropriate to use Internet-
      Drafts as reference material or to cite them other than as ``work
      in progress.''

      To learn the current status of any Internet-Draft, please check

      Drafts Shadow Directories on ftp.is.co.za (Africa), nic.nordu.net

Abstract

   A system for Uniform Resource Names (URNs) must be capable of
   supporting new naming systems.  As an example of proposing a new
   namespace, this document proposes the ''ietf'' namespace.  This
   namespace consists of the RFC family of documents (RFCs, STDs, and
   FYIs) developed by the IETF and published by the RFC editor and the
   minutes of working groups (WG) and birds of a feather (BOF) meetings
   that occur during IETF conferences.  Both the current URN framework
   and URN syntax support this namespace.

0. Changes from -02

   This document has been restructured to use the template proposed in
   draft-ietf-urn-nid-req-03.txt.  Example Perl scripts for resolving
   this namespace have been supplied in an Appendix.

INTERNET DRAFT     A URN Namespace for IETF Documents         March 1998


1. Introduction

   This document proposes the "ietf" namespace, which consists of the
   RFC family of documents (RFCs, STDs, and FYIs) developed by the IETF
   and published by the RFC editor and the minutes of working groups
   (WG) and birds of a feather (BOF) meetings that occur during IETF
   conferences.

   The namespace specification is for a formal namespace.

2. Specification Template

     Namespace ID:

          "ietf" requested.

     Declared registrant of the namespace:

          Ryan Moats
          jayhawk@att.com

     Declaration of structure:

          The identifier has the following ABNF [2] specification:

          NSS = (family ":" number) / ("mtg-" number "-" wgbofname)
          family = "rfc" / "std" / "fyi"
          number = 1*DIGIT
          wgbofname = 1*LETDIGIT
          LETDIGIT = DIGIT / %x41..%x5a / %x61..%x7a
          DIGIT = %x30..%x39

          If the IESG (or it successor) adds a new document
          series, this ABNF specification will need to be
          updated.  Further, If a working group or BOF is
          created that used characters outside the range of this
          ABNF specification, this specification will need to be
          updated.  Any system intended to resolve names for
          this namespace should be written with the awareness
          that this could occur at any time.

     Identifier uniqueness considerations:

          Because the rfc-editor assigns the RFC, FYI and STD
          number uniquely these URNs are unique.  The meeting
          minutes portion of the namespace is guaranteed unique
          because the URN includes the sequence number of the
          IETF conference

INTERNET DRAFT     A URN Namespace for IETF Documents         March 1998


     Identifier persistence considerations:

          Persistence of the URNs of this namespace is dependent
          on the persistence of the underlying documents.

     Process of identifier assignment:

          Assignment of URNs from this namespace occur in two
          ways.  The first is when a new RFC, FYI or STD is
          passed by the IESG and published by the RFC
          Editor. This new document will have a new series
          number and will therefore define a new URN.  The
          document mappings maintained by the RFC Editor (the
          index files "rfc-index.txt", "fyi-index.txt",
          "std-index.txt") are defined to be the definitive
          statement of the assignment of RFC Family URNs in this
          namespace.

          The second way a URN is assigned is when a working
          group or birds of a feather files meeting minutes as
          part of an IETF conference.  The list of minutes
          maintained by the IETF for each working group and
          conference in the subtree pointed at by the URL
          ftp://ietf.org/ietf/ is considered the definitive
          assignment of URNs for working group or birds of a
          feather minutes.

     Process of identifier resolution:

          A mirrored copy of the underlying documentation is
          required to resolve these URNs.  Resolution via
          HTTP is accomplished by a set of simple Perl cgi-bin
          scripts presented in Appendix A.

     Rules for Lexical Equivalence:

          The entire URN is case-insensitive.

     Conformance with URN Syntax:

          There are no additional characters reserved.

     Validation mechanism:

          None specified.

     Scope:

          Global.

3. Security Considerations

   Because this namespace defines no additional reserved characters, it
   does not add any security considerations beyond those inherent from
   the existence of the reserved characters from [1].  Further, none of
   the reserved characters from [1] are used in the definition of the
   NSS. This means that resolvers for this namespace may be considered
   "secure" in the sense that any escaping of characters in the NSS MUST
   result in the resolver indicating that the URN has incorrect syntax.
