RFC 8334              Launch Phase Mapping for EPP            March 2018


1.  Introduction

   This document describes an extension mapping for version 1.0 of the
   Extensible Provisioning Protocol (EPP) [RFC5730].  This EPP mapping
   specifies a flexible schema that can be used to implement several
   common use cases related to the provisioning and management of domain
   name registrations and applications during the launch of a domain
   name registry.

   It is typical for domain registries to operate in special modes as
   they begin operation to facilitate allocation of domain names, often
   according to special rules.  This document uses the term "launch
   phase" and the shorter form "launch" to refer to such a period.
   Multiple launch phases and multiple models are supported to enable
   the launch of a domain name registry.  Server policy determines what
   is supported and validated.  Communication of the server policy is
   typically performed using an out-of-band mechanism that is not
   specified in this document.

   The EPP domain name mapping [RFC5731] is designed for the steady-
   state operation of a registry.  During a launch period, the model in
   place may be different from what is defined in the EPP domain name
   mapping [RFC5731].  For example, registries often accept multiple
   applications for the same domain name during the "sunrise" launch
   phase, referred to as a Launch Application.  A Launch Registration
   refers to a registration made during a launch phase when the server
   uses a "first-come, first-served" model.  Even in a "first-come,
   first-served" model, additional steps and information might be
   required, such as trademark information.  In addition, RFC 7848
   [RFC7848] defines a registry interface for the Trademark Claims or
   "claims" launch phase that includes support for presenting a
   Trademark Claims Notice to the registrant.  This document proposes an
   extension to the domain name mapping in order to provide a uniform
   interface for the management of Launch Applications and Launch
   Registrations in launch phases.

1.1.  Conventions Used in This Document

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "NOT RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and
   "OPTIONAL" in this document are to be interpreted as described in
   BCP 14 [RFC2119] [RFC8174] when, and only when, they appear in all
   capitals, as shown here.

   XML [W3C.REC-xml11-20060816] 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.



Gould, et al.                Standards Track                    [Page 3]


RFC 8334              Launch Phase Mapping for EPP            March 2018


   In examples, "C:" represents lines sent by a protocol client and "S:"
   represents lines returned by a protocol server.  Indentation and
   whitespace in examples are provided only to illustrate element
   relationships and are not a REQUIRED feature of this protocol.  The
   use of "..." is used as shorthand for elements defined outside this
   document.

   A Launch Registration is a domain name registration during a launch
   phase when the server uses a "first-come, first-served" model.  Only
   a single registration for a domain name can exist in the server at a
   time.

   A Launch Application represents the intent to register a domain name
   during a launch phase when the server accepts multiple applications
   for a domain name, and the server later selects one of the
   applications to allocate as a registration.  Many Launch Applications
   for a domain name can exist in the server at a time.

   The XML namespace prefix "launch" is used for the namespace
   "urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:launch-1.0", 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.

   The XML namespace prefix "smd" is used for the namespace
   "urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:signedMark-1.0" [RFC7848], 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.

   The XML namespace prefix "mark" is used for the namespace
   "urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:mark-1.0" [RFC7848], 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 the EPP domain name
   mapping [RFC5731].  Only those new elements are described here.

2.1.  Application Identifier

   Servers MAY allow multiple applications, referred to as a Launch
   Application, of the same domain name during its launch phase
   operations.  Upon receiving a valid <domain:create> command to create
   a Launch Application, the server MUST create an application object
   corresponding to the request, assign an application identifier for
   the Launch Application, set the pendingCreate status [RFC5731], and
   return the application identifier to the client with the



Gould, et al.                Standards Track                    [Page 4]


RFC 8334              Launch Phase Mapping for EPP            March 2018


   <launch:applicationID> element.  In order to facilitate correlation,
   all subsequent launch operations on the Launch Application MUST be
   qualified by the previously assigned application identifier using the
   <launch:applicationID> element.

2.2.  Validator Identifier

   The Validator Identifier is unique to the server and is the
   identifier for a Trademark Validator, which validates marks and has a
   repository of validated marks.  The OPTIONAL "validatorID" attribute
   is used to define the Validator Identifier of the Trademark
   Validator.  Registries MAY support more than one third-party
   Trademark Validator.  The unique set of Validator Identifier values
   supported by the server is up to server policy.  The Internet
   Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) Trademark
   Clearinghouse (TMCH) is the default Trademark Validator and is
   reserved for the Validator Identifier of "tmch".  If the ICANN TMCH
   is not used or multiple Trademark Validators are used, the Validator
   Identifier MUST be defined using the "validatorID" attribute.

   The Validator Identifier MAY be related to one or more issuer
   identifiers of the <mark:id> and <smd:id> elements defined in
   [RFC7848].  Both the Validator Identifier and the Issuer Identifier
   used MUST be unique in the server.  If the ICANN TMCH is not used or
   multiple Trademark Validators are used, the server MUST define the
   list of supported validator identifiers and MUST make this
   information available to clients using a mutually acceptable, out-of-
   band mechanism.

   The Validator Identifier may define a non-Trademark Validator that
   supports a form of claims, where claims and a Validator Identifier
   can be used for purposes beyond trademarks.

2.3.  Launch Phases

   The server MAY support multiple launch phases sequentially or
   simultaneously.  The <launch:phase> element MUST be included by the
   client to define the target launch phase of the command.  The server
   SHOULD validate the phase and MAY validate the sub-phase of the
   <launch:phase> element against the active phase and OPTIONAL sub-
   phase of the server, and return an EPP error result code of 2306
   [RFC5730] if there is a mismatch.

   The following launch phase values are defined:

   sunrise:  The phase during which trademark holders can submit
      registrations or applications with trademark information that can
      be validated by the server.



Gould, et al.                Standards Track                    [Page 5]


RFC 8334              Launch Phase Mapping for EPP            March 2018


   landrush:  A post-"sunrise" launch phase when non-trademark holders
      are allowed to register domain names with steps taken to address a
      large volume of initial registrations.

   claims:  The phase, as defined in Section 2.3.1, in which a claims
      notice must be displayed to a prospective registrant of a domain
      name that matches trademarks.

   open:  A phase that is also referred to as "steady state".  Servers
      may require additional trademark protection during this phase.

   custom:  A custom server launch phase that is defined using the
      "name" attribute.

   For extensibility, the <launch:phase> element includes an OPTIONAL
   "name" attribute that can define a sub-phase or the full name of the
   phase when the <launch:phase> element has the "custom" value.  For
   example, the "claims" launch phase could have two sub-phases that
   include "landrush" and "open".

   Launch phases MAY overlap to support the "claims" launch phase,
   defined in Section 2.3.1, and to support a traditional "landrush"
   launch phase.  The overlap of the "claims" and "landrush" launch
   phases SHOULD be handled by setting "claims" as the <launch:phase>
   value and setting "landrush" as the sub-phase with the "name"
   attribute.  For example, the <launch:phase> element should be
   <launch:phase name="landrush">claims</launch:phase>.

2.3.1.  Trademark Claims Phase

   The Trademark Claims Phase is when a claims notice must be displayed
   to a prospective registrant of a domain name that matches trademarks.
   See [ICANN-TMCH] for additional details of trademark claims handling.
   The source of the trademarks is a Trademark Validator, and the source
   of the claims notice information is a Claims Notice Information
   Service (CNIS), which may be directly linked to a Trademark
   Validator.  The client interfaces with 1) the server to determine if
   a trademark exists for a domain name, 2) a CNIS to get the claims
   notice information, and 3) the server to pass the claims notice
   acceptance information in a create command.  This document supports
   the Trademark Claims Phase in two ways, including:

   Claims Check Form:  Is defined in Section 3.1.1 and is used to
      determine whether or not there are any matching trademarks for a
      domain name.  If there is at least one matching trademark that
      exists for the domain name, a claims key is returned.  The mapping
      of domain names and the claims keys is based on an out-of-band
      interface between the server and the Trademark Validator.  The

RFC 8334              Launch Phase Mapping for EPP            March 2018


      CNIS associated with the claims key Validator Identifier
      (Section 2.2) MUST accept the claims key as the basis for
      retrieving the claims information.

   Claims Create Form:  Is defined in Section 3.3.2 and is used to pass
      the claims notice acceptance information in a create command.  The
      notice identifier (<launch:noticeID>) format, validation rules,
      and server processing is up to the interface between the server
      and the Trademark Validator.  The CNIS associated with the
      Validator Identifier (Section 2.2) MUST generate a notice
      identifier compliant with the <launch:noticeID> element.

2.4.  Status Values

   A Launch Application or Launch Registration object MAY have a launch
   status value.  The <launch:status> element is used to convey the
   launch status pertaining to the object, beyond what is specified in
   the object mapping.  A Launch Application or Launch Registration MUST
   set the "pendingCreate" status [RFC5731] if a launch status is
   supported and is not one of the final statuses ("allocated" and
   "rejected").

   The following status values are defined using the required "s"
   attribute:

   pendingValidation:  The initial state of a newly created application
      or registration object.  The application or registration requires
      validation, but the validation process has not yet completed.

   validated:  The application or registration meets relevant registry
      rules.

   invalid:  The application or registration does not validate according
      to registry rules.  Server policies permitting, it may transition
      back into "pendingValidation" for revalidation, after
      modifications are made to ostensibly correct attributes that
      caused the validation failure.

   pendingAllocation:  The allocation of the application or registration
      is pending based on the results of some out-of-band process (for
      example, an auction).

   allocated:  The object corresponding to the application or
      registration has been provisioned.  This is a possible end state
      of an application or registration object.

   rejected:  The application or registration object was not
      provisioned.  This is a possible end state of an application or
      registration object.

   custom:  A custom status that is defined using the "name" attribute.

   Each status value MAY be accompanied by a string of human-readable
   text that describes the rationale for the status applied to the
   object.  The OPTIONAL "lang" attribute, as defined in [RFC5646], MAY
   be present to identify the language if the negotiated value is
   something other than the default value of "en" (English).

RFC 8334              Launch Phase Mapping for EPP            March 2018


   For extensibility, the <launch:status> element includes an OPTIONAL
   "name" attribute that can define a sub-status or the full name of the
   status when the status value is "custom".  The server SHOULD use one
   of the non-"custom" status values.

   Status values MAY be skipped.  For example, an application or
   registration MAY immediately start at the "allocated" status, or an
   application or registration MAY skip the "pendingAllocation" status.
   If the launch phase does not require validation of a request, an
   application or registration MAY immediately skip to
   "pendingAllocation".

2.5.  Poll Messaging

   A Launch Application MUST be handled as an EPP domain name object as
   specified in RFC 5731 [RFC5731], with the "pendingCreate" status and
   launch status values defined in Section 2.4.  A Launch Registration
   MAY be handled as an EPP domain name object as specified in RFC 5731
   [RFC5731], with the "pendingCreate" status and launch status values
   defined in Section 2.4.  As a Launch Application or Launch
   Registration transitions between the status values defined in
   Section 2.4, the server SHOULD insert poll messages, per [RFC5730],
   for the applicable intermediate statuses, including the
   "pendingValidation", "validated", "pendingAllocation", and "invalid"
   statuses, using the <domain:infData> element with the
   <launch:infData> extension.  The <domain:infData> element MAY contain
   non-mandatory information, like contact and name server information.
   Also, further extensions that would normally be included in the
   response of a <domain:info> command, per [RFC5731], MAY be included.
   For the final statuses, including the "allocated" and "rejected"
   statuses, the server MUST insert a <domain:panData> poll message, per
   [RFC5731], with the <launch:infData> extension.

   The following is an example poll message for a Launch Application
   that has transitioned to the "pendingAllocation" state.

2.6.  Mark Validation Models

   A server MUST support at least one of the following models for
   validating trademark information:

   code:  Use of a mark code by itself to validate that the mark matches
      the domain name.  This model is supported using the
      <launch:codeMark> element with just the <launch:code> element.





Gould, et al.                Standards Track                   [Page 14]


RFC 8334              Launch Phase Mapping for EPP            March 2018


   mark:  The mark information is passed without any other validation
      element.  The server will use some custom form of validation to
      validate that the mark information is authentic.  This model is
      supported using the <launch:codeMark> element with just the
      <mark:mark> (Section 2.6.2) element.

   code with mark:  A code is used along with the mark information by
      the server to validate the mark utilizing an external party.  The
      code represents some form of secret that matches the mark
      information passed.  This model is supported using the
      <launch:codeMark> element that contains both the <launch:code> and
      the <mark:mark> (Section 2.6.2) elements.

   signed mark:  The mark information is digitally signed as described
      in the Digital Signature section (Section 2.6.3).  The digital
      signature can be directly validated by the server using the public
      key of the external party that created the signed mark using its
      private key.  This model is supported using the <smd:signedMark>
      (Section 2.6.3.1) and <smd:encodedSignedMark> (Section 2.6.3.2)
      elements.

   More than one <launch:codeMark>, <smd:signedMark> (Section 2.6.3.1),
   or <smd:encodedSignedMark> (Section 2.6.3.2) element MAY be
   specified.  The maximum number of marks per domain name is up to
   server policy.

2.6.1.  <launch:codeMark> Element

   The <launch:codeMark> element is used by the "code", "mark", and
   "code with mark" validation models and has the following child
   elements:

   <launch:code>:  OPTIONAL mark code used to validate the <mark:mark>
      (Section 2.6.2) information.  The mark code is a mark-specific
      secret that the server can verify against a third party.  The
      OPTIONAL "validatorID" attribute is the Validator Identifier
      (Section 2.2) whose value indicates which Trademark Validator the
      code originated from, with no default value.

   <mark:mark>:  OPTIONAL mark information with child elements defined
      in the Mark section (Section 2.6.2).










Gould, et al.                Standards Track                   [Page 15]


RFC 8334              Launch Phase Mapping for EPP            March 2018


   The following is an example <launch:codeMark> element with both a
   <launch:code> and <mark:mark> (Section 2.6.2) element.

   <launch:codeMark>
     <launch:code validatorID="sample">
       49FD46E6C4B45C55D4AC</launch:code>
     <mark:mark xmlns:mark="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:mark-1.0">
       ...
     </mark:mark>
   </launch:codeMark>

2.6.2.  <mark:mark> Element

   A <mark:mark> element describes an applicant's prior right to a given
   domain name that is used with the "mark", "mark with code", and
   "signed mark" validation models.  The <mark:mark> element is defined
   in [RFC7848].  A new mark format can be supported by creating a new
   XML schema for the mark that has an element that substitutes for the
   <mark:abstractMark> element from [RFC7848].

2.6.3.  Digital Signature

   Digital signatures MAY be used by the server to validate the mark
   information, when using the "signed mark" validation model with the
   <smd:signedMark> (Section 2.6.3.1) and <smd:encodedSignedMark>
   (Section 2.6.3.2) elements.  When using digital signatures, the
   server MUST validate the digital signature.

2.6.3.1.  <smd:signedMark> Element

   The <smd:signedMark> element contains the digitally signed mark
   information.  The <smd:signedMark> element is defined in [RFC7848].
   A new signed mark format can be supported by creating a new XML
   schema for the signed mark that has an element that substitutes for
   the <smd:abstractSignedMark> element from [RFC7848].

2.6.3.2.  <smd:encodedSignedMark> Element

   The <smd:encodedSignedMark> element contains an encoded form of the
   digitally signed <smd:signedMark> (Section 2.6.3.1) element.  The
   <smd:encodedSignedMark> element is defined in [RFC7848].  A new
   encoded signed mark format can be supported by creating a new XML
   schema for the encoded signed mark that has an element that
   substitutes for the <smd:encodedSignedMark> element from [RFC7848].

3.  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 the Launch Phase
   Extension.

   This mapping is designed to be flexible, requiring only a minimum set
   of required elements.

   While it is meant to serve several use cases, it does not prescribe
   any interpretation by the client or server.  Such processing is
   typically highly policy dependent and therefore specific to
   implementations.

   Operations on application objects are done via one or more of the
   existing EPP commands defined in the EPP domain name mapping
   [RFC5731].  Registries MAY choose to support a subset of the
   operations.

3.1.  EPP <check> Command

   There are three forms of the extension to the EPP <check> command:
   the Claims Check Form (Section 3.1.1), the Availability Check Form
   (Section 3.1.2), and the Trademark Check Form (Section 3.1.3).  The
   <launch:check> element "type" attribute defines the form, with the
   value of "claims" for the Claims Check Form (Section 3.1.1), "avail"
   for the Availability Check Form (Section 3.1.2), and "trademark" for
   the Trademark Check Form (Section 3.1.3).  The default value of the
   "type" attribute is "claims".  The forms supported by the server is
   determined by server policy.  The server MUST return an EPP error
   result code of 2307 [RFC5730] if it receives a check form that is not
   supported.

3.1.1.  Claims Check Form

   The Claims Check Form defines a new command called the Claims Check
   Command that is used to determine whether or not there are any
   matching trademarks, in the specified launch phase, for each domain
   name passed in the command, that require the use of the "Claims
   Create Form" on a Domain Create Command.  The availability check
   information defined in the EPP domain name mapping [RFC5731] MUST NOT
   be returned for the Claims Check Command.  This form is the default
   form and MAY be explicitly identified by setting the <launch:check>
   "type" attribute to "claims".






Gould, et al.                Standards Track                   [Page 17]


RFC 8334              Launch Phase Mapping for EPP            March 2018


   Instead of returning whether the domain name is available, the Claims
   Check Command will return whether or not at least one matching
   trademark exists for the domain name, which requires the use of the
   "Claims Create Form" on a Domain Create Command.  If there is at
   least one matching trademark that exists for the domain name, a
   <launch:claimKey> element is returned.  The client MAY then use the
   value of the <launch:claimKey> element to obtain information needed
   to generate the Trademark Claims Notice from the Trademark Validator
   based on the Validator Identifier (Section 2.2).  The unique notice
   identifier of the Trademark Claims Notice MUST be passed in the
   <launch:noticeID> element of the extension to the Create Command
   (Section 3.3).

   The <domain:name> elements in the EPP <check> command of EPP domain
   name mapping [RFC5731] define the domain names to check for matching
   trademarks.  The <launch:check> element contains the following child
   element:

   <launch:phase>:  Contains the value of the active launch phase of the
       server.  The server SHOULD validate the value according to

   The following is an example Claims Check Command using the <check>
   domain command and the <launch:check> extension with the "type"
   explicitly set to "claims", to determine if "domain1.example",
   "domain2.example", and "domain3.example" require claims notices
   during the "claims" launch phase:

   C:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>

   If the <check> command has been processed successfully, the EPP
   <response> MUST contain an <extension> <launch:chkData> element that

   contains the following child elements:

   <launch:phase>:  The phase that mirrors the <launch:phase> element
       included in the <launch:check>.

   <launch:cd>:  One or more <launch:cd> elements that contain the
       following child elements:

       <launch:name>:  Contains the fully qualified name of the queried
           domain name.  This element MUST contain an "exists" attribute
           whose value indicates if a matching trademark exists for the
           domain name that requires the use of the "Claims Create Form"
           on a Domain Create Command.  A value of "1" (or "true") means

           query the service without using a well-known value like a
           domain name.  The OPTIONAL "validatorID" attribute is the
           Validator Identifier (Section 2.2) whose value indicates
           which Trademark Validator to query for the claims notice
           information, with the default being the ICANN TMCH.  The
           "validatorID" attribute MAY reference a non-trademark claims

3.1.2.  Availability Check Form

   The Availability Check Form defines additional elements to extend the
   EPP <check> command described in the EPP domain name mapping
   [RFC5731].  No additional elements are defined for the EPP <check>
   response.  This form MUST be identified by setting the <launch:check>
   "type" attribute to "avail".

   The EPP <check> command is used to determine if an object can be
   provisioned within a repository.  Domain names may be made available
   only in unique launch phases, whilst remaining unavailable for
   concurrent launch phases.  In addition to the elements expressed in
   the <domain:check>, the command is extended with the <launch:check>
   element that contains the following child element:

   <launch:phase>:  The launch phase to which domain name availability
       should be determined.  The server SHOULD validate the value and
       return an EPP error result code of 2306 [RFC5730] if it is
       invalid.

   The following is an example Availability Check Form Command using the
   <check> domain command and the <launch:check> extension with the
   "type" set to "avail", to determine the availability of two domain
   names in the "idn-release" custom launch phase:

   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>domain1.example</domain:name>

   C:      <launch:phase name="idn-release">custom</launch:phase>
   C:    </launch:check>
   C:   </extension>
   C:   <clTRID>ABC-12345</clTRID>
   C:  </command>
   C:</epp>






Gould, et al.                Standards Track                   [Page 22]


RFC 8334              Launch Phase Mapping for EPP            March 2018


   The Availability Check Form does not define any extension to the
   response of a <check> domain command.  After processing the command,
   the server replies with a standard EPP response as defined in the EPP
   domain name mapping [RFC5731].

3.1.3.  Trademark Check Form

   The Trademark Check Form defines a new command called the Trademark
   Check Command that is used to determine whether or not there are any
   matching trademarks for each domain name passed in the command,
   independent of the active launch phase of the server and whether the
   "Claims Create Form" is required on a Domain Create Command.  The
   availability check information defined in the EPP domain name mapping
   [RFC5731] MUST NOT be returned for the Trademark Check Command.  This
   form MUST be identified by setting the <launch:check> "type"
   attribute to "trademark".

   Instead of returning whether the domain name is available, the
   Trademark Check Command will return whether or not at least one
   matching trademark exists for the domain name.  If there is at least
   one matching trademark that exists for the domain name, a
   <launch:claimKey> element is returned.  The client MAY then use the
   value of the <launch:claimKey> element to obtain Trademark Claims
   Notice information from the Trademark Validator based on the
   Validator Identifier (Section 2.2).

   The <domain:name> elements in the EPP <check> command of EPP domain
   name mapping [RFC5731] define the domain names to check for matching
   trademarks.  The <launch:check> element does not contain any child
   elements with the "Trademark Check Form":

RFC 8334              Launch Phase Mapping for EPP            March 2018


   The following is an example Trademark Check Command using the <check>
   domain command and the <launch:check> extension with the "type" set
   to "trademark", to determine if "domain1.example", "domain2.example",
   and "domain3.example" have any matching trademarks:

   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>domain1.example</domain:name>
   C:      <domain:name>domain2.example</domain:name>
   C:      <domain:name>domain3.example</domain:name>
   C:    </domain:check>
   C:   </check>
   C:   <extension>
   C:    <launch:check
   C:     xmlns:launch="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:launch-1.0"
   C:     type="trademark"/>
   C:   </extension>
   C:   <clTRID>ABC-12345</clTRID>
   C:  </command>
   C:</epp>

   If the <check> command has been processed successfully, the EPP
   <response> MUST contain an <extension> <launch:chkData> element that
   identifies the launch namespace.  The <launch:chkData> element
   contains the following child elements:

   <launch:cd>:  One or more <launch:cd> elements that contain the
       following child elements:

       <launch:name>:  Contains the fully qualified name of the queried
           domain name.  This element MUST contain an "exists" attribute
           whose value indicates if a matching trademark exists for the
           domain name.  A value of "1" (or "true") means that a
           matching trademark does exist.  A value of "0" (or "false")
           means that a matching trademark does not exist.

       <launch:claimKey>:  Zero or more OPTIONAL claim keys that MAY be
           passed to a third-party Trademark Validator such as the ICANN
           TMCH for querying the information needed to generate a
           Trademark Claims Notice.  The <launch:claimKey> is used as
           the key for the query in place of the domain name to securely
           query the service without using a well-known value like a
           domain name.  The OPTIONAL "validatorID" attribute is the
           Validator Identifier (Section 2.2) whose value indicates

           which Trademark Validator to query for the claims notice
           information, with the default being the ICANN TMCH.  The
           "validatorID" attribute MAY reference a non-trademark claims
           clearinghouse identifier to support other forms of claims
           notices.

   The following is an example Trademark Check response for the "claims"
   launch phase when no matching trademarks are found for the domain
   name domain1.example, matching trademarks are found for the domain
   name domain2.example in the "tmch", and matching trademarks are found
   for domain name domain3.example in the "tmch" and "custom-tmch":

3.2.  EPP <info> Command

   This extension defines additional elements to extend the EPP <info>
   command and response to be used in conjunction with the EPP domain
   name mapping [RFC5731].

   The EPP <info> command is used to retrieve information for a Launch
   Registration or Launch Application.  The Application Identifier
   (Section 2.1) returned in the <launch:creData> element of the create
   response (Section 3.3) can be used for retrieving information for a
   Launch Application.  A <launch:info> element is sent along with the
   regular <info> domain command.  The <launch:info> element includes an
   OPTIONAL "includeMark" boolean attribute, with a default value of
   "false", to indicate whether or not to include the mark in the
   response.  The <launch:info> element contains the following child
   elements:

   <launch:phase>:  The phase during which the application or
       registration was submitted or is associated with.  Server policy
       defines the phases that are supported.  The server SHOULD
       validate the value and return an EPP error result code of 2306
       [RFC5730] if it is invalid.

   <launch:applicationID>:  OPTIONAL application identifier of the
       Launch Application.

RFC 8334              Launch Phase Mapping for EPP            March 2018


3.3.  EPP <create> Command

   There are four forms of the extension to the EPP <create> command
   that include the Sunrise Create Form (Section 3.3.1), the Claims
   Create Form (Section 3.3.2), the General Create Form (Section 3.3.3),
   and the Mixed Create Form (Section 3.3.4).  The form used is
   dependent on the supported launch phases (Section 2.3) as defined
   below.

   sunrise:  The EPP <create> command with the "sunrise" launch phase is
      used to submit a registration with trademark information that can
      be verified by the server with the <domain:name> value.  The
      Sunrise Create Form (Section 3.3.1) is used for the "sunrise"
      launch phase.

   landrush:  The EPP <create> command with the "landrush" launch phase
      MAY use the General Create Form (Section 3.3.3) to explicitly
      specify the phase and optionally define the expected type of
      object to create.

   claims:  The EPP <create> command with the "claims" launch phase is
      used to pass the information associated with the presentation and
      acceptance of the claims notice.  The Claims Create Form
      (Section 3.3.2) is used, and the General Create Form
      (Section 3.3.3) MAY be used for the "claims" launch phase.

   open:  The EPP <create> command with the "open" launch phase is
      undefined, but the form supported is up to server policy.  The
      Claims Create Form (Section 3.3.2) MAY be used to pass the
      information associated with the presentation and acceptance of the
      claims notice if required for the domain name.

   custom:  The EPP <create> command with the "custom" launch phase is
      undefined, but the form supported is up to server policy.

3.3.1.  Sunrise Create Form

   The Sunrise Create Form of the extension to the EPP domain name
   mapping [RFC5731] includes the verifiable trademark information that
   the server uses to match against the domain name to authorize the
   domain create.  A server MUST support one of four models in Mark
   Validation Models (Section 2.6) to verify the trademark information
   passed by the client.

   A <launch:create> element is sent along with the regular <create>
   domain command.  The <launch:create> element has an OPTIONAL "type"
   attribute that defines the expected type of object ("application" or
   "registration") to create.  The server SHOULD validate the "type"

   attribute, when passed, against the type of object that will be
   created, and return an EPP error result code of 2306 [RFC5730] if the
   type is incorrect.  The <launch:create> element contains the
   following child elements:

   <launch:phase>:  The identifier for the launch phase.  The server
       SHOULD validate the value according to Section 2.3.

   <launch:codeMark> or <smd:signedMark> or <smd:encodedSignedMark>:

       <launch:codeMark>:  Zero or more <launch:codeMark> elements.  The
           <launch:codeMark> child elements are defined in
           "<launch:codeMark> Element" (Section 2.6.1).

       <smd:signedMark>:  Zero or more <smd:signedMark> elements.  The
           <smd:signedMark> child elements are defined in
           "<smd:signedMark> Element" (Section 2.6.3.1).

       <smd:encodedSignedMark>:  Zero or more <smd:encodedSignedMark>
           elements.  The <smd:encodedSignedMark> child elements are
           defined in "<smd:encodedSignedMark> Element"
           (Section 2.6.3.2).

   attribute, when passed, against the type of object that will be
   created, and return an EPP error result code of 2306 [RFC5730] if the
   type is incorrect.  The <launch:create> element contains the
   following child elements:

   <launch:phase>:  Contains the value of the active launch phase of the
       server.  The server SHOULD validate the value according to
       Section 2.3.

   <launch:notice>:  One or more <launch:notice> elements that contain
       the following child elements:

       <launch:noticeID>:  Unique notice identifier for the claims
           notice.  The <launch:noticeID> element has an OPTIONAL
           "validatorID" attribute that is used to define the Validator
           Identifier (Section 2.2); it's value indicates which
           Trademark Validator is the source of the claims notice, with
           the default being the ICANN TMCH.

       <launch:notAfter>:  Expiry of the claims notice.

       <launch:acceptedDate>:  Contains the date and time that the
           claims notice was accepted.

3.3.3.  General Create Form

   The General Create Form of the extension to the EPP domain name
   mapping [RFC5731] includes the launch phase and optionally the object
   type to create.  The OPTIONAL "type" attribute defines the expected
   type of object ("application" or "registration") to create.  The
   server SHOULD validate the "type" attribute, when passed, against the
   type of object that will be created, and return an EPP error result
   code of 2306 [RFC5730] if the type is incorrect.

   A <launch:create> element is sent along with the regular <create>
   domain command.  The <launch:create> element contains the following
   child element:

   <launch:phase>:  Contains the value of the active launch phase of the
       server.  The server SHOULD validate the value according to
       Section 2.3.

3.3.4.  Mixed Create Form

   The Mixed Create Form supports a mix of the create forms where, for
   example, the Sunrise Create Form (Section 3.3.1) and the Claims
   Create Form (Section 3.3.2) MAY be supported in a single command by
   including both the verified trademark information and the information
   related to the registrant's acceptance of the claims notice.  The
   server MAY support the Mixed Create Form.  The "custom" launch phase
   SHOULD be used when using the Mixed Create Form.

3.3.5.  Create Response

   If the create was successful, the server MAY add a <launch:creData>
   element to the regular EPP <resData> to indicate that the server
   generated an Application Identifier (Section 2.1), when multiple
   applications of a given domain name are supported; otherwise, no
   extension is included with the regular EPP <resData>.  The
   <launch:creData> element contains the following child elements:

   <launch:phase>:  The phase of the application that mirrors the
       <launch:phase> element included in the <launch:create>.

   <launch:applicationID>:  The application identifier of the
       application.

   The following is an example response when multiple overlapping
   applications are supported by the server:

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

3.4.  EPP <update> Command

   This extension defines additional elements to extend the EPP <update>
   command to be used in conjunction with the domain name mapping.

   When an EPP <update> command with the extension is sent to a server
   that does not support Launch Applications, it will fail.  A server
   that does not support Launch Applications during its launch phase
   MUST return an EPP error result code of 2102 [RFC5730] when receiving
   an EPP <update> command with the extension.

   Registry policies permitting, clients may update an application
   object by submitting an EPP <update> command along with a
   <launch:update> element to indicate the application object to be
   updated.  The <launch:update> element contains the following child
   elements:

   <launch:phase>:  The phase during which the application was submitted
       or is associated with.  The server SHOULD validate the value and
       return an EPP error result code of 2306 [RFC5730] if it is
       invalid.

   <launch:applicationID>:  The application identifier for which the
       client wishes to update.

RFC 8334              Launch Phase Mapping for EPP            March 2018


   The following is an example <update> domain command with the
   <launch:update> extension to add and remove a name server of a
   sunrise application with the application identifier "abc123":

   C:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>

   C:      <launch:applicationID>abc123</launch:applicationID>
   C:    </launch:update>
   C:    </extension>
   C:    <clTRID>ABC-12345</clTRID>
   C:  </command>
   C:</epp>

   This extension does not define any extension to the response of an
   <update> domain command.  After processing the command, the server
   replies with a standard EPP response as defined in the EPP domain
   name mapping [RFC5731].

3.5.  EPP <delete> Command

   This extension defines additional elements to extend the EPP <delete>
   command to be used in conjunction with the domain name mapping.

   A client MUST NOT pass the extension on an EPP <delete> command to a
   server that does not support Launch Applications.  A server that does

   not support Launch Applications during its launch phase MUST return
   an EPP error result code of 2102 [RFC5730] when receiving an EPP
   <delete> command with the extension.

   Registry policies permitting, clients MAY withdraw an application by
   submitting an EPP <delete> command along with a <launch:delete>
   element to indicate the application object to be deleted.  The
   <launch:delete> element contains the following child elements:

   <launch:phase>:  The phase during which the application was submitted
       or is associated with.  The server SHOULD validate the value and
       return an EPP error result code of 2306 [RFC5730] if it is
       invalid.

   <launch:applicationID>:  The application identifier for which the
       client wishes to delete.

   The following is an example <delete> domain command with the
   <launch:delete> extension:

   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:      <domain:name>domain.example</domain:name>
   C:    </domain:delete>
   C:   </delete>
   C:   <extension>
   C:    <launch:delete
   C:     xmlns:launch="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:launch-1.0">
   C:      <launch:phase>sunrise</launch:phase>

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

   This extension does not define any extension to the response of a
   <delete> domain command.  After processing the command, the server
   replies with a standard EPP response as defined in the EPP domain
   name mapping [RFC5731].

RFC 8334              Launch Phase Mapping for EPP            March 2018


3.6.  EPP <renew> Command

   This extension does not define any extension to the EPP <renew>
   command or response described in the EPP domain name mapping
   [RFC5731].

3.7.  EPP <transfer> Command

   This extension does not define any extension to the EPP <transfer>
   command or response described in the EPP domain name mapping
   [RFC5731].

4.  Formal Syntax

   The EPP Launch Phase Mapping schema is presented in Section 4.1.

   The formal syntax presented 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.

5.  IANA Considerations

5.1.  XML Namespace

   This document uses URNs to describe XML namespaces and XML schemas
   conforming to a registry mechanism described in [RFC3688].

   IANA has registered the launch namespace as follows:

      URI: urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:launch-1.0

      Registrant Contact: IESG

      XML: None.  Namespace URIs do not represent an XML specification.










Gould, et al.                Standards Track                   [Page 54]


RFC 8334              Launch Phase Mapping for EPP            March 2018


   IANA has registered the launch XML schema as follows:

      URI: urn:ietf:params:xml:schema:launch-1.0

      Registrant Contact: IESG

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

5.2.  EPP Extension Registry

   IANA has registered the EPP extension described in this document in
   the "Extensions for the Extensible Provisioning Protocol (EPP)"
   registry described in [RFC7451].  The details of the registration are
   as follows:

   Name of Extension: "Launch Phase Mapping for the Extensible
   Provisioning Protocol (EPP)"

   Document Status: Standards Track

   Reference: RFC 8334

   Registrant Name and Email Address: IESG, <iesg@ietf.org>

   TLDs: Any

   IPR Disclosure: None

   Status: Active

   Notes: None

6.  Security Considerations

   The mapping extensions described in this document do not provide any
   security services beyond those described by EPP [RFC5730], the EPP
   domain name mapping [RFC5731], and protocol layers used by EPP.  The
   security considerations described in these other specifications apply
   to this specification as well.

   Updates to, and deletion of, an application object MUST be restricted
   to clients authorized to perform the said operation on the object.

   Information contained within an application, or even the mere fact
   that an application exists, may be confidential.  Any attempt to
   operate on an application object by an unauthorized client MUST be
   rejected with an EPP 2201 (authorization error) return code.  Server
   policy may allow an <info> operation with filtered output by clients



Gould, et al.                Standards Track                   [Page 55]


RFC 8334              Launch Phase Mapping for EPP            March 2018


   other than the sponsoring client, in which case the <domain:infData>
   and <launch:infData> responses SHOULD be filtered to include only
   fields that are publicly accessible.
