Abstract

   The Registration Data Access Protocol (RDAP) provides limited search
   functionality based on pattern matching.  This document describes an
   RDAP query extension that provides additional search functionality
   using POSIX extended regular expressions.

1.  Introduction

   The search patterns for Registration Data Access Protocol (RDAP)
   search as described in RFC 7482 [RFC7482] are limited.  The protocol
   described in this specification extends RDAP search capabilities by
   adding path segments for RDAP search functions using a RESTful web
   service and POSIX [IEEE.1003.1_2013_EDITION] extended regular
   expressions.  The service is implemented using the Hypertext Transfer
   Protocol (HTTP) [RFC7230] and the conventions described in RFC 7480
   [RFC7480].
