                       URN Namespace for IEEE 


   This document describes the Namespace Identifier (NID) 'ieee' for
   Uniform Resource Names (URNs) used to identify resources published by
   the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).  IEEE
   specifies and manages resources that utilize this URN identification
   model.  Management activities for these and other resources types are
   handled by the manager of the IEEE Registration Authority.

Status of This Memo

   This Internet-Draft is submitted in full conformance with the
   provisions of BCP 78 and BCP 79.

   Internet-Drafts are working documents of the Internet Engineering
   Task Force (IETF).  Note that other groups may also distribute
   working documents as Internet-Drafts.  The list of current Internet-
   Drafts is at http://datatracker.ietf.org/drafts/current/.

   Internet-Drafts are draft documents valid for a maximum of six months

1.  Introduction

   The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) is an
   organization whose objectives include the educational and technical
   advancement of electrical and electronic engineering,
   telecommunications, computer engineering and allied disciplines.
   Within IEEE, standardization activities are organized into sponsors,
   such as the LAN/MAN Stadnards Commitee, and then working groups 
   such as 802.1 and 802.3.  See http://standards.ieee.org.

   As part of these specifications efforts, there is a need to identify
   identifiers in a managed namespace that are unique and persistent.
   To ensure that this namespace's uniqueness is absolute, a
   registration of a specific Unified Resource Name (URN) URN Syntax
   [RFC2141] Namespace Identifier (NID) for use by IEEE is being
   specified in this document, in full conformance with the NID
   registration process specified in URN Namespace Definition Mechanism
