Technical Summary
 
An ENUM domain name is tightly coupled with the underlying E.164 number.
The process of verifying whether the Registrant of an ENUM domain name is
identical to the Assignee of the corresponding E.164 number is commonly
called "validation". This document describes a signed XML data format --
the Validation Token -- with which Validation Entities can convey
successful completion of a validation procedure in a secure fashion.
