Abstract

   This document describes uniform patterns to construct HTTP URLs that
   may be used to retrieve identifier information from Second-Level
   Nodes (SLN) using "RESTful" web access patterns. These uniform
   patterns define the query syntax for the Industrial Internet
   Identifier Data Access Protocol (IIIDAP).

1. Introduction

   This document describes a specification for querying identifier data
   using a RESTful web service and uniform query patterns. The service
   is implemented using the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP)
   [RFC7230] and the conventions described in [IDENTIFIER-HTTP]. These
   uniform patterns define the query syntax for the Industrial Internet
   Identifier Data Access Protocol (IIIDAP).

Internet-Draft     Identifier Data Query Protocol        July 13, 2020

   The intent of the patterns described here are to enable queries of
   the identifier information by identifiers or names. [RFC3986]
   patterns specified in this document are only applicable to the HTTP
