         Definition of the ROLIE Software Descriptor Extension
              draft-ietf-sacm-rolie-softwaredescriptor-03

Abstract

   This document uses the "information-type" extension point as defined
   in the Resource-Oriented Lightweight Information Exchange (ROLIE)
   [RFC8322] Section 7.1.2 to better support Software Record and
   Software Inventory use cases.  This specification registers a new
   ROLIE information-type, "software-descriptor", that allows for the
   categorization of information relevant to software description
   activities and formats.  In particular, the usage of the ISO
   19770-2:2015 (SWID Tag) and the Concise SWID (COSWID) formats in
   ROLIE are standardized.  Additionally, this document discusses
   requirements and usage of other ROLIE elements in order to best
   syndicate software description information.
