This document describes the `Protocol to Access White Space database (PAWS)' that uses HTTP/TLS as transport. The protocol is used for retrieving the necessary TV white space information (e.g., channel, frequency, transmitted power) at a given location and time from a database that is operating under a regulatory domain. The document includes the protocol functionalities, its elements, corresponding data model and recommends its encoding scheme.
