1.  Introduction

   Domain resellers are the individuals or companies that act as agents
   for domain name registrars.  A domain name registrar is a direct
   customer of the domain name registry, is represented as the
   sponsoring client to the server in [RFC5730], and may have several
   resellers to help them sell domain names to end users.

   This document describes an extension mapping for version 1.0 of the
   Extensible Provisioning Protocol (EPP) [RFC5730].  This EPP mapping
   specifies the reseller object mapping.

   This document is specified using the XML 1.0 as described in
   [W3C.REC-xml-20040204] and XML Schema notation as described in
   [W3C.REC-xmlschema-1-20041028] and [W3C.REC-xmlschema-2-20041028].

2.  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 [RFC2119].

   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 specification.

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

   "reseller-1.0" in is used as an abbreviation for
   "urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:reseller-1.0".  The XML namespace prefix
   "reseller" 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.

3.  Object Attributes

   An EPP reseller object has attributes and associated values that can
   be viewed and modified by the sponsoring client or the server.  This
   section describes each attribute type in detail.  The formal syntax
   for the attribute values described here can be found in the "Formal
   Syntax" section of this document and in the appropriate normative
   references.

Internet-Draft            EPP Reseller Mapping                March 2016


3.1.  Reseller Identifier

   Reseller identifier provides the ID of the reseller of a sponsoring
   registrar.  Its corresponding element is <reseller:id> defined in
   this document.  All reseller objects are identified by a server-
   unique identifier.

3.2.  Contact and Client Identifiers

   All EPP contacts are identified by a server-unique identifier.
   Contact identifiers are character strings with a specific minimum
   length, a specified maximum length, and a specified format.  Contact
   identifiers use the "clIDType" client identifier syntax described in
   [RFC5730].

3.3.  Reseller State

   A reseller object MUST always have at least one associated state
   value.  Valid values include "ok", "readonly" and "terminated".

   State Value Descriptions:

   o  ok: the normal status value for the reseller object.

   o  readonly: transform commands submitted with the reseller
      identifier in the reseller extension would not be allowed.

   o  terminated: query and transform commands submitted with the
      reseller identifier in the reseller extension would not be
      allowed.

3.4.  Parent Identifier

   There can be more than one layer of resellers.  The parent
   identifier, as defined with the <reseller:parentId> element,
   represents the parent reseller identifier in a child reseller.  The
   parent identifier is not defined for the top level reseller, namely
   the registrar of the registry.  An N-tier reseller has a parent
   reseller and at least one child reseller.  A reseller customer has a
   parent reseller and no child resellers.

   Loops SHOULD be prohibited.  If reseller A has B as parent
   identifier, reseller B must not have reseller A as parent identifier.

3.5.  URL

   The URL represents the reseller web home page, as defined with the
   <reseller:url> element.

3.6.  Disclosure of Data Elements and Attributes

   This document supports the same disclosure features described in
   Section 2.9 of with the use of the <reseller:disclose> element.
   [RFC5733].

   The <reseller:disclose> element MUST contain at least one of the
   following child elements:

   <reseller:name type="int"/>

   <reseller:name type="loc"/>

   <reseller:addr type="int"/>

   <reseller:addr type="loc"/>

   <reseller:voice/>

   <reseller:fax/>

   <reseller:email/>

   <reseller:url/>

   <reseller:contact/>

4.  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 provisioning and
   managing reseller information via EPP.

4.1.  EPP Query Commands

   EPP provides two commands to retrieve domain information: <check> to
   determine if a reseller object can be provisioned within a
   repository, and <info> to retrieve detailed information associated
   with a reseller object.  This document does not define a mapping for
   the EPP <transfer> command.

Internet-Draft            EPP Reseller Mapping                March 2016


4.1.1.  EPP <check> Command

   The EPP <check> command is used to determine if an object can be
   provisioned within a repository.  It provides a hint that allows a
   client to anticipate the success or failure of provisioning an object
   using the <create> command, as object-provisioning requirements are
   ultimately a matter of server policy.

   In addition to the standard EPP command elements, the <check> command
   MUST contain a <reseller:check> element that identifies the reseller
   namespace.  The <reseller:check> element contains the following child
   elements:

   o  One or more <reseller:id> elements that contain the server-unique
      identifier of the reseller objects to be queried.

   Example <check> command:


   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:      <reseller:check
   C:       xmlns:reseller="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:reseller-1.0">
   C:        <reseller:id>res1523</reseller:id>
   C:        <reseller:id>re1523</reseller:id>
   C:        <reseller:id>1523res</reseller:id>
   C:      </reseller:check>
   C:    </check>
   C:    <clTRID>ABC-12345</clTRID>
   C:  </command>
   C:</epp>

   When a <check> command has been processed successfully, the EPP
   <resData> element MUST contain a child <reseller:chkData> element
   that identifies the reseller namespace.  The <reseller:chkData>
   element contains one or more <reseller:cd> elements that contain the
   following child elements:

   o  A <reseller:id> element that identifies the queried object.  This
      element MUST contain an "avail" attribute whose value indicates
      object availability (can it be provisioned or not) at the moment
      the <check> command was completed.  A value of "1" or "true" means
      that the object can be provisioned.  A value of "0" or "false"
      means that the object cannot be provisioned.

   o  An OPTIONAL <reseller:reason> element that MAY be provided when an
      object cannot be provisioned.  If present, this element contains
      server-specific text to help explain why the object cannot be
      provisioned.  This text MUST be represented in the response
      language previously negotiated with the client; an OPTIONAL "lang"
      attribute MAY be present to identify the language if the
      negotiated value is something other than the default value of
      "en"(English).

   Example <check> response:


   S:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
   S:<epp xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp-1.0">
   S:  <response>
   S:    <result code="1000">
   S:      <msg>Command completed successfully</msg>
   S:    </result>
   S:    <resData>
   S:      <reseller:chkData
   S:       xmlns:reseller="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:reseller-1.0">
   S:        <reseller:cd>
   S:          <reseller:id avail="1">res1523</reseller:id>
   S:        </reseller:cd>
   S:        <reseller:cd>
   S:          <reseller:id avail="0">re1523</reseller:id>
   S:          <reseller:reason>In use</reseller:reason>
   S:        </reseller:cd>
   S:        <reseller:cd>
   S:          <reseller:id avail="1">1523res</reseller:id>
   S:        </reseller:cd>
   S:      </reseller:chkData>
   S:    </resData>
   S:    <trID>
   S:      <clTRID>ABC-12345</clTRID>
   S:      <svTRID>54322-XYZ</svTRID>
   S:    </trID>
   S:  </response>
   S:</epp>

   An EPP error response MUST be returned if a <check> command cannot be
   processed for any reason.

4.1.2.  EPP <info> Command

   The EPP <info> command is used to retrieve information associated
   with a reseller object.  In addition to the standard EPP command
   elements, the <info> command MUST contain a <reseller:info> element



Zhou, et al.           Expires September 10, 2016               [Page 7]


Internet-Draft            EPP Reseller Mapping                March 2016


   that identifies the reseller namespace.  The <reseller:info> element
   contains the following child elements:

   o  A <reseller:id> element that contains the server-unique identifier
      of the reseller object to be queried.

   Example <info> command:


   C:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
   C:<epp xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp-1.0">
   C:  <command>
   C:    <info>
   C:      <reseller:info
   C:       xmlns:reseller="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:reseller-1.0">
   C:        <reseller:id>res1523</reseller:id>
   C:      </reseller:info>
   C:    </info>
   C:    <clTRID>ABC-12345</clTRID>
   C:  </command>
   C:</epp>

   When an <info> command has been processed successfully, the EPP
   <resData> element MUST contain a child <reseller:infData> element
   that identifies the reseller namespace.  The <reseller:infData>
   element contains the following child elements:

   o  A <reseller:id> element that contains the server-unique identifier
      of the reseller object, as defined in Section 3.1.

   o  A <reseller:roid> element that contains the Repository Object
      IDentifier assigned to the reseller object when the object was
      created.

   o  A <reseller:state> element that contains the operational state of
      the reseller, as defined in Section 3.3.

   o  An OPTIONAL <reseller:parentId> element that contains the
      identifier of the parent object, as defined in Section 3.4.

   o  One or two <reseller:postalInfo> elements that contain postal-
      address information.  Two elements are provided so that address
      information can be provided in both internationalized and
      localized forms; a "type" attribute is used to identify the two
      forms.  If an internationalized form (type="int") is provided,
      element content MUST be represented in a subset of UTF-8 that can
      be represented in the 7-bit US-ASCII character set.  If a
      localized form (type="loc") is provided, element content MAY be

      element contains the following child elements:

      *  A <reseller:name> element that contains the name of the
         reseller, which SHOULD be the name of the organization.

      *  A <reseller:addr> element that contains address information
         associated with the reseller.  A <reseller:addr> element
         contains the following child elements:

         +  One, two, or three OPTIONAL <reseller:street> elements that
            contain the reseller's street address.

         +  A <reseller:city> element that contains the reseller's city.

         +  An OPTIONAL <reseller:sp> element that contains the
            reseller's state or province.

         +  An OPTIONAL <reseller:pc> element that contains the
            reseller's postal code.

         +  A <reseller:cc> element that contains the reseller's country
            code.

   o  An OPTIONAL <reseller:voice> element that contains the reseller's
      voice telephone number.

   o  An OPTIONAL <reseller:fax> element that contains the reseller's
      facsimile telephone number.

   o  A <reseller:email> element that contains the reseller's email
      address.

   o  A <reseller:url> element that contains the URL to the website of
      the reseller.

   o  Zero or more OPTIONAL <reseller:contact> elements that contain
      identifiers for the contact objects to be associated with the
      reseller object.  Contact object identifiers MUST be known to the
      server before the contact object can be associated with the
      reseller object.  An attribute "type" associated with
      <reseller:contact> is used to represent contact types.  The type
      values include admin, tech and billing.

   o  A <reseller:clID> element that contains the identifier of the
      sponsoring client, who is the domain name registrar.

      NOT be present if the reseller has never been modified.

   o  A <reseller:upDate> element that contains the date and time of the
      most recent reseller-object modification.  This element MUST NOT
      be present if the reseller object has never been modified.

   o  An OPTIONAL <reseller:disclose> element that identifies elements
      that require exceptional server-operator handling to allow or
      restrict disclosure to third parties.  See Section 3.6 for a
      description of the child elements contained within the
      <reseller:disclose> element.

4.1.3.  EPP <transfer> Command

   The transfer semantics does not apply to reseller object.  No EPP
   <transfer> command is defined in this document.

4.2.  EPP Transform Commands

   EPP provides four commands to transform reseller-object information:
   <create> to create an instance of a reseller object, <delete> to
   delete an instance of a reseller object, <transfer> to manage
   reseller-object sponsorship changes, and <update> to change
   information associated with a reseller object.  This document does
   not define a mapping for the EPP <transfer> and <renew> command.

   Transform commands are typically processed and completed in real
   time.  Server operators MAY receive and process transform commands
   but defer completing the requested action if human or third-party
   review is required before the requested action can be completed.  In
   such situations, the server MUST return a 1001 response code to the
   client to note that the command has been received and processed but
   that the requested action is pending.  The server MUST also manage
   the status of the object that is the subject of the command to
   reflect the initiation and completion of the requested action.  Once
   the action has been completed, all clients involved in the
   transaction MUST be notified using a service message that the action
   has been completed and that the status of the object has changed.
   Other notification methods MAY be used in addition to the required
   service message.

4.2.1.  EPP <create> Command

   The EPP <create> command provides a transform operation that allows a
   client to create a reseller object.  In addition to the standard EPP
   command elements, the <create> command MUST contain a
   <reseller:create> element that identifies the reseller namespace.
   The <reseller:create> element contains the following child elements:

   o  A <reseller:id> element that contains the desired server-unique
      identifier for the reseller to be created, as defined in
      Section 3.1.

   o  A <reseller:state> element that contains the operational status of
      the reseller, as defined in Section 3.3.

   o  An OPTIONAL <reseller:parentId> element that contains the
      identifier of the parent object, as defined in Section 3.4.

   o  One or two <reseller:postalInfo> elements that contain postal-
      address information.  Two elements are provided so that address
      information can be provided in both internationalized and
      localized forms; a "type" attribute is used to identify the two
      forms.  If an internationalized form (type="int") is provided,
      element content MUST be represented in a subset of UTF-8 that can
      be represented in the 7-bit US-ASCII character set.  If a
      localized form (type="loc") is provided, element content MAY be
      represented in unrestricted UTF-8.  The <reseller:postalInfo>
      element contains the following child elements:

      *  A <reseller:name> element that contains the name of the
         reseller, which SHOULD be the name of the organization.

      *  A <reseller:addr> element that contains address information
         associated with the reseller.  A <reseller:addr> element
         contains the following child elements:

         +  One, two, or three OPTIONAL <reseller:street> elements that
            contain the reseller's street address.

         +  A <reseller:city> element that contains the reseller's city.

         +  An OPTIONAL <reseller:sp> element that contains the
            reseller's state or province.

         +  An OPTIONAL <reseller:pc> element that contains the
            reseller's postal code.

         +  A <reseller:cc> element that contains the reseller's country
            code.

   o  An OPTIONAL <reseller:voice> element that contains the reseller's
      voice telephone number.

   o  An OPTIONAL <reseller:fax> element that contains the reseller's
      facsimile telephone number.

   o  A <reseller:email> element that contains the reseller's email
      address.

   o  A <reseller:url> element that contains the URL to the website of
      the reseller.

   o  Zero or more OPTIONAL <reseller:contact> elements that contain
      identifiers for the human or organizational social information
      objects associated with the reseller object.

   o  An OPTIONAL <reseller:disclose> element that identifies elements
      that require exceptional server-operator handling to allow or
      restrict disclosure to third parties.  See Section 3.6 for a

   <reseller:delete> element that identifies the reseller namespace.
   The <reseller:delete> element MUST contain the following child
   element:

   A reseller object SHOULD NOT be deleted if it is associated with
   other known objects.  An associated reseller SHOULD NOT be deleted
   until associations with other known objects have been broken.  A
   server SHOULD notify clients that object relationships exist by
   sending a 2305 error response code when a <delete> command is
   attempted and fails due to existing object relationships.

   Example <delete> command:


   C:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
   C:<epp xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp-1.0">
   C:  <command>
   C:    <delete>
   C:      <reseller:delete
   C:       xmlns:reseller="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:reseller-1.0">
   C:        <reseller:id>res1523</reseller:id>

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

   When a <delete> command has been processed successfully, a server
   MUST respond with an EPP response with no <resData> element.

   Example <delete> response:


   S:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
   S:<epp xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp-1.0">
   S:  <response>
   S:    <result code="1000">

4.2.3.  EPP <renew> Command

   Renewal semantics do not apply to reseller objects, so there is no
   mapping defined for the EPP <renew> command.

4.2.4.  EPP <transfer> Command

   Transfer semantics do not apply to reseller objects, so there is no
   mapping defined for the EPP <transfer> command.

4.2.5.  EPP <update> Command

   The EPP <update> command provides a transform operation that allows a
   client to modify the attributes of a reseller object.  In addition to
   the standard EPP command elements, the <update> command MUST contain
   a <reseller:update> element that identifies the reseller namespace.
   The <reseller:update> element contains the following child elements:

   o  A <reseller:id> element that contains the server-unique identifier
      of the reseller object to be updated, as defined in Section 3.1.

   o  An OPTIONAL <reseller:add> element that contains attribute values
      to be added to the object.

   o  An OPTIONAL <reseller:rem> element that contains attribute values
      to be removed from the object.

   o  An OPTIONAL <reseller:chg> element that contains attribute values
      to be changed.

   At least one <reseller:add>, <reseller:rem> or <reseller:rem> element
   MUST be provided if the command is not being extended.  All of these
   elements MAY be omitted if an <update> extension is present.  The
   <reseller:add> and <reseller:rem> elements contain the following
   child element:

   o  Zero or more <reseller:contact> elements that contain the
      identifiers for contact objects to be associated with or removed
      from the reseller object.  Contact object identifiers MUST be
      known to the server before the contact object can be associated
      with the reseller object.

   A <reseller:chg> element contains the following OPTIONAL child
   elements.  At least one child element MUST be present:

   o  A <reseller:state> element that contains the operational status of
      the reseller.

   When an <update> command has been processed successfully, a server
   MUST respond with an EPP response with no <resData> element.

   Example <update> response:

   An EPP error response MUST be returned if an <update> command cannot
   be processed for any reason.

5.  Formal Syntax

   An EPP object mapping is specified in XML Schema notation.  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.

6.  Internationalization Considerations

   EPP is represented in XML, which provides native support for encoding
   information using the Unicode character set and its more compact
   representations including UTF-8.  Conformant XML processors recognize
   both UTF-8 and UTF-16.  Though XML includes provisions to identify
   and use other character encodings through use of an "encoding"
   attribute in an <?xml?> declaration, use of UTF-8 is RECOMMENDED.

   As an extension of the EPP reseller object mapping, the elements and
   element content described in this document MUST inherit the
   internationalization conventions used to represent higher-layer
   domain and core protocol structures present in an XML instance that
   includes this extension.

7.  IANA Considerations

7.1.  XML Namespace

   This document uses URNs to describe XML namespaces and XML schemas
   conforming to a registry mechanism described in [RFC3688].  IANA is
   requested to assignment the following URI.

   Registration request for the reseller namespace:

   o  URI: urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:reseller-1.0

   o  Registrant Contact: See the "Author's Address" section of this
      document.

   o  XML: See the "Formal Syntax" section of this document.

Internet-Draft            EPP Reseller Mapping                March 2016


7.2.  EPP Extension Registry

   The EPP extension described in this document should be registered by
   the IANA in the EPP Extension Registry described in [RFC7451].  The
   details of the registration are as follows:

   Name of Extension: Domain Reseller Object Extension

   Document status: Standards Track

   Reference: (insert reference to RFC version of this document)

   Registrant Name and Email Address: See the "Author's Address" section
   of this document.

   TLDs: any

   IPR Disclosure: none

   Status: active

   Notes: none

8.  Security Considerations

   Authorization information described in [RFC5733] is not supported in
   this document.  If the querying client is not the sponsoring
   registrar of the reseller, not all the object information is
   accessible.  The disclose element defined in [RFC5733] is used to
   allow or restrict disclosure of object elements to third parties.
   Other mechanism, such as defining a registry customized authorization
   information list according to their local policies and regulations,
   is also possible.
