       Finding the Authoritative Registration Data (RDAP) Service
                   draft-ietf-weirds-bootstrap-09.txt

Abstract

   This document specifies a method to find which Registration Data
   Access Protocol (RDAP) server is authoritative to answer queries for
   a requested scope, such as domain names, IP addresses or Autonomous
   System numbers.

1.  Introduction

   Querying and retrieving registration data from registries are defined
   in the Registration Data Access Protocol (RDAP) [I-D.ietf-weirds-rdap
   -query][I-D.ietf-weirds-using-http][I-D.ietf-weirds-json-response].
   These documents do not specify where to send the queries.  This
   document specifies a method to find which server is authoritative to
   answer queries for the requested scope.

   Top-level domains(TLD), Autonomous numbers (AS), and network blocks
   are delegated by IANA to Internet registries such as TLD registries
   and Regional Internet Registries(RIR) that then issue further
   delegations and maintain information about them.  Thus, obviously the
   bootstrap information needed by RDAP clients is best generated from
