             Uniform Resource Names for Device Identifiers
                       draft-ietf-core-dev-urn-10

Abstract

   This document describes a new Uniform Resource Name (URN) namespace
   for hardware device identifiers.  A general representation of device
   identity can be useful in many applications, such as in sensor data
   streams and storage, or equipment inventories.  A URN-based
   representation can be passed along in applications that need the
   information.
