Charter for Working Group

Administration of Domain Name Service (DNS) registration increasingly
distinguishes between operation of the data base for registrations,
versus "front-end" sales and support services by registrars who interact
with registrants and with the "back-end" data base.  Especially for
various Top-Level Domains, the desire is to permit multiple registrars
to share access to the database.  This BOF will consider a working group
for development of a protocol for a registrar access to the registry. 
The protocol will permit interaction between a registrar's own
application and the data base service running a domain name service
registry repository. Specification for user interface access, such as by
a web front end, is beyond the scope of the proposed working group.  The
working group will base its efforts on the CORE SRS version 1.5
protocol, as documented in <draft-crispin-srs-00.txt>.
