Internet-Draft     An IETF URN Sub-Namespace for OAuth          Jan 2012

1.  Introduction

   Various extensions and companion specifications to The OAuth 2.0
   Authorization Protocol [I-D.ietf.oauth-v2] utilize URIs to identify
   the extension in use or other relevant context.  This document
   creates and registers an IETF URN Sub-namespace, as documented in RFC
   3553 [RFC3553], for use with such specifications.  The new 'oauth'
   sub-namespace look like urn:ietf:params:oauth and OAuth relevant
   parameters will be established underneath it.

2.  Notational Conventions

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
   document are to be interpreted as described in RFC 2119 [RFC2119].

3.  Registration Template

   If the registrant wishes to have a URI assigned, then a URN of the
   form urn:ietf:params:oauth:<class>:<id> will be assigned where
   <class> is the category of the parameters being registered and <id>
   is a unique id generated by the IANA based on any means the IANA
   deems necessary to maintain uniqueness and persistence.  NOTE: in
   order for a URN of this type to be assigned, the item being
   registered MUST be documented in a RFC.  The RFC 3553 [RFC3553] URN
   registration template is found in the IANA consideration section of
   this document.

   The registration procedure for new entries requires a request in the
   form of the following template:

   URN:
      The token URI that identifies the registered component.  If the
