Abstract

   This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB)
   for use with network management protocols in the Internet community.
   This IANA Charset MIB is [intended to become] an IANA registry.  In
   particular, a single textual convention 'IANACharset' is defined that
   may be used to specify charset labels in MIB objects.  'IANACharset'
   was extracted from Printer MIB v2 (work-in-progress).  'IANACharset'
   was originally defined (and mis-named) as 'CodedCharSet' in Printer
   MIB v1 (RFC 1759).  A tool has been written in C, that may be used by
   IANA to regenerate this IANA Charset MIB, when future charsets are in
   accordance with the IANA Charset Registration Procedures (RFC 2978).

1.  Introduction

   This IANA Charset MIB [CHARMIB] module defines the single textual
   convention 'IANACharset'.  Once adopted, all future versions of the
   IANA Charset MIB [CHARMIB] may be machine-generated, whenever the
   IANA Charset Registry [CHARSET] is updated by IANA staff according to
   the procedures defined in [RFC2978], using the utility [CHARGEN]
   described in section 3 of this document or any other
   machine-generation method.

   It is strongly recommended that future updates to the IANA Charset
   MIB [CHARMIB] be machine generated (rather than hand-edited) to avoid
   asynchrony between the IANA Charset Registry [CHARSET] and the IANA
   Charset MIB [CHARMIB].

   Note:  Questions and comments on this IANA Charset MIB [CHARMIB]
   should be sent to the editor (imcdonald@sharplabs.com) and IANA
   (iana@iana.org) with a copy to the IETF Charsets mailing list
   (ietf-charset@iana.org).



   1.1.  Conformance 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 RFC 2119 [RFC2119].

Internet Draft             IANA Charset MIB             10 February 2003



   1.2.  Charset Terminology

   The following terms are used in this specification, exactly as
   defined in section 1 'Definitions and Notation' of the IANA Charset
   Registration Procedures [RFC2978]:  "character", "charset", "coded
   character set (CCS)", and "character encoding scheme (CES)".



2.  The Internet-Standard Management Framework

   For a detailed overview of the documents that describe the current
   Internet-Standard Management Framework, please refer to section 7 of
   RFC 3410 [RFC3410].

   Managed objects are accessed via a virtual information store, termed
   the Management Information Base or MIB.  MIB objects are generally
   accessed through the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).
   Objects in the MIB are defined using the mechanisms defined in the
   Structure of Management Information (SMI).  This memo specifies a MIB
   module that is compliant to the SMIv2, which is described in STD 58,
   RFC 2578 [RFC2578], STD 58, RFC 2579 [RFC2579] and STD 58, RFC 2580
   [RFC2580].

3.  Generation of IANA Charset MIB

   Intellectual Property:  The C language utility 'ianachar.c' [CHARGEN]
   and the IANA Charset MIB template file [CHARTEMP] are hereby donated
   by the author (Ira McDonald) to IANA, in perpetuity, free of license
   or any other restraint.

   The [CHARGEN] utility may be used to generate an updated version of
   the 'IANACharset' textual convention by reading and parsing the
   (currently plaintext) IANA Charset Registry [CHARSET].

   This utility parses each charset registration, finding (in order):

   1)  The 'Name' field (which is saved for a fallback - see below);

   2)  The 'MIBenum' field (which contains the IANA-assigned positive
       decimal enum value); and

   3)  The (usually present) 'Alias' field that begins with 'cs' (that
       contains the IANA-assigned enum label).  If an 'Alias' field is
       not found, the utility constructs one from the 'Name' field by:

       - Beginning the enum label with a lowercase 'cs' prefix;

       - Copying _only_ alpha/numeric characters from the 'Name' field
         to the enum label (ignoring punctuation, whitespace, etc.).

    DESCRIPTION     "This MIB module defines the IANACharset Textual
                    Convention.  The IANACharset TC is used to specify
                    the encoding of string objects defined in a MIB.

                    Each version of this MIB is machine-generated from
                    the IANA Charset Registry file (see RFC 2978) at
                    http://www.iana.org/assignments/character-sets.

                    Note:  The IANACharset TC, originally defined in
                    RFC 1759, was inaccurately named CodedCharSet.

                    Note:  Best practice is to define new MIB string
                    objects with invariant UTF-8 (RFC 2279) syntax
                    using the SnmpAdminString TC (defined in RFC 3411)
                    in accordance with IETF Policy on Character Sets and
                    Languages (RFC 2277).

                    version of this MIB module is part of RFC xxxx;

        defined in 'IANA Charset Registration Procedures' (RFC 2978).

        Objects of this syntax are used to specify the encoding for
        string objects defined in one or more MIBs.  For example, the
        prtLocalizationCharacterSet, prtInterpreterDefaultCharSetIn, and
        prtInterpreterDefaultCharSetOut objects defined in Printer MIB.

        The current list of 'charset' names and enumerated values
        is contained in the IANA Character Set Registry at:

           http://www.iana.org/assignments/character-sets

        Enum names are derived from the IANA Charset Registry 'Alias'

Internet Draft             IANA Charset MIB             10 February 2003



5.  IANA Considerations

   IANA should assign a base arc in the 'mgmt' (standards track) OID
   tree for the 'ianaCharset' MODULE-IDENTITY defined in the IANA
   Charset MIB [CHARMIB].

   Whenever any 'charset' is added to the IANA Charset Registry
   [CHARSET], a new version of the IANA Charset MIB [CHARMIB] should be
   machine-generated using the C language utility [CHARGEN] described in
   section 3 of this document or some other utility.



6.  Intellectual Property

   The IETF takes no position regarding the validity or scope of any
   intellectual property or other rights that might be claimed to
   pertain to the implementation or use of the technology described in
   this document or the extent to which any license under such rights
   might or might not be available; neither does it represent that it
   has made any effort to identify any such rights.  Information on the
   IETF's procedures with respect to rights in standards-track and
   standards-related documentation can be found in RFC 2028.  Copies of
   claims of rights made available for publication and any assurances of
   licenses to be made available, or the result of an attempt made to
   obtain a general license or permission for the use of such
   proprietary rights by implementors or users of this specification can
   be obtained from the IETF Secretariat.

   The IETF invites any interested party to bring to its attention any
   copyrights, patents or patent applications, or other proprietary
   rights which may cover technology that may be required to practice
   this standard.  Please address the information to the IETF Executive
   Director.



7.  Internationalization Considerations

   The IANA Charset MIB [CHARMIB] defines the 'IANACharset' textual
   convention that may be used in a given MIB module to supply explicit
   character set labels for one or more text string objects defined in
   that MIB module.

   For example, the Printer MIB [RFC1759] defines the three character
   set label objects 'prtLocalizationCharacterSet' (for description and
   console strings), 'prtInterpreterDefaultCharSetIn' (for received
   print job input data), and 'prtIntpreterDefaultCharSetOut' (for
   processed print job output data).

McDonald                Expires 10 August 2003                 [Page 12]


Internet Draft             IANA Charset MIB             10 February 2003


   The IANA Charset MIB [CHARMIB] supports implementation of the best
   practices specified in "IETF Policy on Character Sets and Languages"
   [RFC2277].

   Note:  The use of the 'SnmpAdminString' textual convention defined in
   [RFC3411], which has a fixed character set of UTF-8 [RFC2779], is
   STRONGLY RECOMMENDED in defining new MIB modules.  The IANA Charset
   MIB [CHARMIB] supports locale-specific MIB objects with variable
   character sets.



8.  Security Considerations

   This MIB module does not define any management objects.  Instead, it
   defines a (set of) textual convention(s) which may be used by other
   MIB modules to define management objects.

   Meaningful security considerations can only be written in the MIB
   modules that define management objects.  This document has therefore
   no impact on the security of the Internet.



9.  Acknowledgements

   The editor would like to thank:  Bert Wijnen (Lucent) for his
   original suggestion that the 'IANACharset' textual convention should
   be extracted from Printer MIB v2 (work-in-progress) [RFC1759bis]; Ron
   Bergman (Hitachi Printing Solutions) and Harry Lewis (IBM) for their
   many years of effort as editors of Printer MIB v2 (work-in-progress)
   [RFC1759bis].
