ENUM (RFC 3761) describes how the Domain Name System (DNS) can be
used to identify services associated with an E.164 number. The EPP (RFC
3730) mapping described in this document specifies a mechanism for
the provisioning and management of E.164 numbers stored in a shared central
repository. Information exchanged via this mapping can be extracted
from the repository and used to publish DNS resource records as
described in ENUM. Examples used in this document were chosen
specifically to illustrate provisioning concepts for the example
resource records described in the ENUM specification.
Working Group Summary
The working group strongly supported this work. At the time of development,
there was no longer a working group for EPP, but the principle of extensions
for EPP has been for them to be developed in their subject working groups.
There was one Last Call comment with a concern about a capability, but this
concern was well addressed by discussion on the IETF mailing list, and the
commenter withdrew the concern.
The document was reviewed for the IESG by Allison Mankin. This specification
has been prototyped. IESG review required a small revision to improve the
alignment of the document with RFC 3761.
