Technical Summary This document describes an application layer client-server protocol for a framework representing the query and result operations of the administrative information services of Internet registries. Specified in XML, the protocol defines generic query and result operations and a mechanism for extending these operations for specific registry service needs. Working Group Summary The working group went through an extensive requirements process and had two competing proposals; this one and one based on LDAP. The group was able to come to consensus on this proposal, and there has been no significant dissent on the shape of this proposal since the working group decided on it as the way forward. Protocol Quality There is at least one implementation of the current specification. The document was reviewed during working group last call by the working group chairs, Dave Blacka, and Ted Hardie.
