Abstract

   The DTNRG Research Group has defined the experimental Licklider
   Transmission Protocol (LTP) and the Compressed Bundle Header Encoding
   (CBHE) mechanism for the InterPlanetary Network ('ipn' URI scheme).
   Moreover, RFC 5050 defines values for the Bundle Protocol
   administrative record type.  All of these fields are subject to a
   registry.  For the purpose of its research work, the group has
   created ad hoc registries.  As the specifications are stable and have
   multiple interoperable implementations, the group would like to hand
   off the registries to IANA for official management.  This document
   describes the necessary IANA actions.

1.  Introduction

   The DTNRG Research Group has defined the Licklider Transmission
   Protocol (LTP) [RFC5326].  LTP contains certain fields that are
   subject to a registry.  For the purpose of its research work, the
   group has created ad hoc registries.  As the specifications are
   stable and have multiple interoperable implementations, the group
   would like to hand off the registries to IANA for official
   management.  This document describes the actions that IANA needs to
   take and uses the well-known IANA policy definitions as described in
   Section 4.1 of [RFC5226].

   The Compressed Bundle Header Encoding (CBHE) [RFC6260] specification
   defines the concepts of 'Node Number' and 'Service Number' in the
   'ipn' URI scheme.  In this document, we request formation of IANA
   registries for these fields.
