The rescap protocol is a general client-server resolution protocol that translates resource identifiers to a list of attributes. For instance, a rescap client can ask a rescap server for the attributes of a particular mail user. rescap is very light-weight and acts only as a resolution protocol, not a directory service. This document describes the format of rescap requests and responses.
