Abstract

Using Unicode codepoints in protocol strings requires preparation of the string. Internationalized Domain Names(idn) initial work defined and used Stringprep and Nameprep. Other protocols have defined Stringprep profiles. A new approach different from Stringprep/ Nameprep is used for a revision of IDN. The Stringprep profiles need to be updated or a replacement of Stringprep need to be designed. This document summarizes the findings of the current usage of Stringprep and identifies directions for a new Stringprep replacement protocol.
