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

1.  Introduction

   Various extensions and companion specifications to The OAuth 2.0
   Authorization Framework [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 is 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 a registrant wishes to have a OAuth URI registered, then a URN of
   the form urn:ietf:params:oauth:<value> will be requested where
   <value> is a suitable representation of the functionality or concept
   being registered.

   The registration procedure for new entries requires a request in the
   form of the following template and is Specification Required per RFC
   5226 [RFC5226].

   URN:
      The URI that identifies the registered functionality.

   Common Name:
      The name by which the functionality being registered is generally
