Abstract

   The Incident Object Description Exchange Format (IODEF) is an XML
   data representation framework for sharing information about computer
   security incidents.  In IODEF, the Reference class provides
   references to externally specified information such as a
   vulnerability, IDS alert, malware sample, advisory, or attack
   technique.  In practice, these references are based on external
   enumeration specifications that define both the enumeration format
   and the specific enumeration values, but the IODEF Reference class
   (as specified in IODEF v1 in RFC 5070) does not indicate how to
   include both of these important pieces of information.

   This memo establishes a stand-alone data format to include both the
   external specification and specific enumeration identification value,
   and establishes an IANA registry to manage external enumeration
   specifications.  While this memo does not update IODEV v1, this
   enumeration reference format is used in IODEF v2 and is applicable to
   other formats that support this class of enumeration references.

Status of this Memo

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

   Internet-Drafts are working documents of the Internet Engineering
   Task Force (IETF), its areas, and its working groups.  Note that
   other groups may also distribute working documents as
   Internet-Drafts.

   Internet-Drafts are draft documents valid for a maximum of six months
   and may be updated, replaced, or obsoleted by other documents at any
   time.  It is inappropriate to use Internet-Drafts as reference
   material or to cite them other than as "work in progress."

INTERNET DRAFT     IODEF Enumeration Reference Format  December 24, 2014

1  Introduction

   There is an identified need to specify a format to include relevant
   enumeration values from other data representation formats in an IODEF
   document. It is anticipated that this requirement will exist in other
   standardization efforts within several IETF Working Groups, but the
   scope of this document pertains solely to IODEF. This format is used
   in IODEF v2 [I-D.draft-ietf-mile-rfc5070-bis] which replaces the
   original IODEF v1 [IODEF] specification.
