      Security Services for the Registration Data Access Protocol
                     draft-ietf-weirds-rdap-sec-11

Abstract

   The Registration Data Access Protocol (RDAP) provides "RESTful" web
   services to retrieve registration metadata from domain name and
   regional internet registries.  This document describes information
   security services including authentication, authorization,
   availability, data confidentiality, and data integrity for RDAP.

1.  Introduction

   The Registration Data Access Protocol (RDAP) is specified in multiple
   documents, including "Registration Data Access Protocol Lookup
   Format" [I-D.ietf-weirds-rdap-query], "JSON Responses for the
   Registration Data Access Protocol (RDAP)"
   [I-D.ietf-weirds-json-response], and "HTTP usage in the Registration
   Data Access Protocol (RDAP)" [I-D.ietf-weirds-using-http].

   One goal of RDAP is to provide security services that do not exist in
   the WHOIS [RFC3912] protocol, including authentication,
   authorization, availability, data confidentiality, and data
   integrity.  This document describes how each of these services is
   achieved by RDAP using features that are available in other protocol
   layers.  Additional or alternative mechanisms can be added in the
   future.  Where applicable, informational references to requirements
   for a WHOIS replacement service [RFC3707] are noted.
