Abstract

   The Calendar Access Protocol (CAP) is an Internet protocol described
   in this memo that permits a Calendar User (CU) to utilize a Calendar
   User Agent (CUA) to access an [iCAL] based Calendar Store (CS).

   The CAP definition is based on requirements identified by the
   Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) Calendaring and Scheduling

Internet-Draft       Calendar Access Protocol (CAP)            July 2003


1. Introduction

   This document specifies how a Calendar CUA interacts with a CS to
   manage calendar information. In particular, it specifies how to
   query, create, modify, and delete iCalendar components (e.g., events,
   to-dos, or daily journal entries). It further specifies how to search
   for available busy time information. Synchronization with CUAs is not
   covered and believed to be possible using CAP.

   CAP is specified as a [BEEP] "profile". As such, many aspects of the
   protocol (e.g., authentication and privacy) are provided within
   [BEEP].  The protocol data units leverage the standard iCalendar
   format [iCAL] to convey calendar related information.

   CAP can also be used to store and fetch [iTIP] objects and when those
   objects are used in this memo, they mean exactly the same as defined
   in [iTIP]. When iCalendar objects are transferred between the CUA and
   a CS, some additional properties and parameters may be added and the
   CUA is responsible for correctly generating iCalendar objects to non
   CAP processes.

   The definition of new components, properties, parameter's, and value
   types are broken into two parts. The first part summarizes and
   defined the new objects. The second part provides the detail and any
   ABNF for those objects. The ABNF in CAP as in other iCalendar
   specifications is order independent. That is properties in a
   component may occur in any order and parameters in any property may
   occur in any order.

1.1 Formatting 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 [RFCWORDS].

   Calendaring and scheduling roles are referred to in quoted-strings of
   text with the first character of each word in upper case. For
   example, "Organizer" refers to a role of a "Calendar User" (CU)
   within the protocol defined by [iTIP]. Calendar components defined by
   [iCAL] are referred to with capitalized, quoted-strings of text. All
   iCalendar components should start with the letter "V". For example,
   "VEVENT" refers to the event calendar component, "VTODO" refers to
   the to-do component and "VJOURNAL" refers to the daily journal
   component.

   Scheduling methods defined by [iTIP], are referred to with
   capitalized, quoted-strings of text. For example, "REPLY" refers to
   the method for replying to a "REQUEST".

Internet-Draft       Calendar Access Protocol (CAP)            July 2003


   CAP commands are referred to by upper-case, quoted-strings of text,
   followed by the word "command".  For example, "CREATE" command refers
   to the command for creating a calendar entry, "SEARCH" command refers
   to the command for reading calendar components. CAP Commands are
   named using the "CMD" property.

   Properties defined by this memo are referred to with capitalized,
   quoted-strings of text, followed by the word "property". For example,
   "ATTENDEE" property refers to the iCalendar property used to convey
   the calendar address that has been invited to a "VEVENT" or "VTODO"
   component.

   Property parameters defined by this memo are referred to with
   capitalized, quoted-strings of text, followed by the word
   "parameter". For example, "PARTSTAT" parameter refers to the
   iCalendar property parameter used to specify the participation status
   of an attendee.  Enumerated values defined by this memo are referred
   to with capitalized text, either alone or followed by the word
   "value".

   Object states defined by this memo are referred to with capitalized,
   quoted-strings of text, followed by the word "state". For example,
   "BOOKED" state refers to an object in the booked state.

   Within a query, the different parts are referred to as a "clause" and
   its value as "clause value" and the clause name will be in uppercase
   enclosed in quotes. Example, The "SELECT" clause or if the "SELECT"
   clause value contains ...

   In tables, the quoted-string text is specified without quotes in
   order to minimize the table length.

1.2 Related Documents

   Implementers will need to be familiar with several other memos that,
   along with this one, describe the Internet calendaring and scheduling
   standards. These documents are:

   [iCAL] -  (RFC2445) Which specifies the objects, data types,
      properties and property parameters used in the protocols, along
      with the methods for representing and encoding them.

   [iTIP] -  (RFC2446) Which specifies an interoperability protocol for
      scheduling between different installations.

   [iMIP] -  (RFC2447) Which specifies the Internet email binding for
      [iTIP].

   [GUIDE] -  (RFC3283),  a guide to implementers and describes the
      elements of a calendaring system, how they interact with each
      other, how they interact with end users, and how the standards and
      protocols are used.

   This memo does not attempt to repeat the specification of concepts
   and definitions from these other memos. Where possible, references
   are made to the memo that provides for the specification of these
   concepts and definitions.

1.3 Definitions

   BOOKED -  An object in the calendar store has one of three conceptual
      states. It is in the "UNPROCESSED" state, "BOOKED" state, or
      marked for deletion which is the "DELETED" state. How the
      implementation stores the state of any object is not a protocol
      issues and is not discussed. An object can be said to be booked,
      unprocessed, or marked for delete.



      1.  An "UNPROCESSED" state scheduling object has been stored in
          the calendar store but has not been acted on by a CU or CUA.
          All scheduled entries are [iTIP] objects. All [iTIP] objects
          in the store are not in the "BOOKED" state. To retrieve any
          [iTIP] object, simply do a query asking for any objects that
          are stored in the "UNPROCESSED" state.

      2.  A "BOOKED" state entry is stored with the "CREATE" command. It
          is an object that has been acted on by a CU or CUA and there
          has been a decision to store an object. To retrieve any booked
          object, simply do a query asking for any objects that were
          stored in the "BOOKED" state.

      3.  A "DELETED" state entry is created by sending a "DELETE"
          command with the "OPTION" parameter value set to "MARK". To
          retrieve any deleted object, simply do a query asking for any
          objects that were stored in the "DELETED" state. By default
          objects marked for delete are not returned. The CUA must
          specifically ask for marked for delete objects. You can not
          ask for components in the "DELETED" state and in other states
          in the same "VQUERY" component, as there would be no way to
          distinguish between them in the reply.

   Calendar -  A collection of logically related objects or entities
      each of which may be associated with a calendar date and possibly
      time of day. These entities can include calendar properties or
      components. In addition, a calendar might be related to other

      calendars with the "RELATED-TO" property. A calendar is identified
      by its unique calendar identifier. The [iCAL] defines the initial
      calendar properties, calendar components and properties that make
      up the contents of a calendar.

   Calendar Access Protocol (CAP) -  The standard Internet protocol that
      permits a CUA to access and manipulate calendars residing on a
      Calendar Store. (this memo)

   Calendar Access Rights (VCAR) -  The mechanism for specifying the CAP
      operations ("PERMISSION") that a particular calendar user ("UPN")
      is granted or denied permission to perform on a given calendar
      object ("SCOPE"). The calendar access rights are specified with a
      "VCAR" component. (Section 9.3.

   Calendar Address -  Also See Calendar URL - they are one in the same
      for CAP addresses. The calendar address can also be the value to
      the "ATTENDEE" and "ORGANIZER" properties as defined in [iCAL].

   Calendar URL -  A calendar URL is a URL defined in this memo that
      specifies the address of a CS or Calendar.

   Component-  Any object that conforms to the iCalendar object format
      and that is either defined in an internet draft, registered with
      IANA, or is an experimental object that is prefixed with "x-".
      Some types of components include calendars, events, to-dos,
      journals, alarms, and time zones. A component consists of
      properties and possibly other contained components. For example,
      an event may contain an alarm component.

   Container -  This is a generic name for VCALSTORE or VAGENDA.

   Properties -  An attribute of a particular component. Some properties
      are applicable to  different types of components. For example, the
      "DTSTART" property is applicable to the "VEVENT", "VTODO", and
      "VJOURNAL" components. Other components are applicable only to an
      individual type of calendar component. For example, the "TZURL"
      property may only be applicable to the "VTIMEZONE" components.

   Calendar Identifier (CALID) -  A globally unique identifier
      associated with a calendar. Calendars reside within a CS. See
      Qualified Calendar Identifier and Relative Calendar Identifier.
      All CALIDs start with "cap:".

   Calendar Policy -  A CAP operational restriction on the access or
      manipulation of a calendar. These may be outside of the scope of
      the CAP protocol. An example of an implementation or site policy
      is, "events MUST BE scheduled in unit intervals of one hour".

Internet-Draft       Calendar Access Protocol (CAP)            July 2003


   Calendar Property -  An attribute of a calendar ("VAGENDA"). The
      attribute applies to the calendar, as a whole. For example, the
      "CALSCALE" property specifies the calendar scale (e.g., the
      "GREGORIAN" value) for the all entries within the calendar.

   Calendar Store (CS) -  The data and service model definition for a
      Calendar Store as defined in this memo. This memo does not specify
      how the CS is implemented.

   Calendar Server -  An implementation of a Calendar Store (CS) that
      manages one or more calendars.

   Calendar Store Identifier (CSID) -  The globally unique identifier
      for an individual CS. A CSID consists of the host and port
      portions of a "Common Internet Scheme Syntax" part of a URL, as
      defined by [URL]. The CSID excludes any reference to a specific
      calendar. (Section 8.9)

   Calendar Store Components -  Components maintained in a CS specify a
      grouping of calendar store-wide information.

   Calendar Store Properties -  Properties maintained in a Calendar
      Store calendar store-wide information.

   Calendar User (CU) -  An entity (often biological) that uses a
      calendaring system.

   Calendar User Agent (CUA) -  The client application that a CU
      utilizes to access and manipulate a calendar.

   CAP Session -  An open communication channel between a CUA and a CS.
      If the CAP session is authenticated, the CU is "authenticated" and
      it is an "authenticated CAP session".

   Contained Component / Contained Properties -  A component or property
      that is contained inside of another component. A "VALARM"
      component for example may be contained inside of a "VEVENT"
      component. And a "TRIGGER" property could be a contained property
      of a "VALARM" component.

   Delegate -  A CU (sometimes called the delegatee) who has been
      assigned participation in a scheduled component (e.g., VEVENT) by
      one of the attendees in the scheduled component (sometimes called
      the delegator). An example of a delegate is a team member told to
      go to a particular meeting in place of another Attendee who is
      unable to attend.

Internet-Draft       Calendar Access Protocol (CAP)            July 2003


   Designate -  A CU who is authorized to act on behalf of another CU.
      An example of a designate is an assistant.

   Experimental -  The CUA and CS may implement experimental extensions
      to the protocol. They also might have experimental components,
      properties, and parameters. These extensions MUST start with "x-"
      (or "X-") and should include a vendor prefix (such as
      "x-myvendor-"). There is no guarantee that these experimental
      extensions will interoperate with other implementations. There is
      no guarantee that they will not interact in unpredictable ways
      with other vendor experimental extensions. There is no guarantee
      that the same specific experimental extension is not used my
      multiple vendors in incompatible ways. Implementations should
      limit sending those extensions to other implementations.

   Object -  A generic name for any component, property, parameter, or
      value type to be used in iCalendar.

   Overlapped Booking -  A policy which indicates whether or not
      components with a "TRANSP" property not set to
      "TRANSPARENT-NOCONFLICT" or "OPAQUE-NOCONFLICT" value can overlap
      one another. When the policy is applied to a calendar it indicates
      whether or not the time span of any component (VEVENT, VTODO, ...)
      in the calendar can overlap the time span of any other component
      in the same calendar.  When applied to an individual object, it
      indicates whether or not any other component's time span can
      overlap that individual component. If the CS does not allow
      overlapped booking, then the CS is unwilling to allow any
      overlapped bookings within any calendar or entry in the CS.

   Owner -  One or more CUs or UGs that are listed in the "OWNER"
      property in a calendar. There can be more than one owner. The "

   Qualified Calendar Identifier (Qualified CALID) -  A CALID in which
      both the scheme and CSID of the CAP URI are present.

   Realm -  A collection of calendar user accounts, identified by a
      string.  The name of the Realm is only used in UPNs. In order to
      avoid namespace conflict, the Realm SHOULD be postfixed with an
      appropriate DNS domain name. (e.g., the foobar Realm could be
      called foobar.example.com).

   Relative Calendar Identifier (Relative CALID) -  An identifier for an
      individual calendar in a calendar store. It MUST BE unique within
      a calendar store. A Relative CALID consists of the "URL path" of
      the "Common Internet Scheme Syntax" portion of a URL, as defined
      by [URI] and [URLGUIDE].

   Session Identity -  A UPN associated with a CAP session. A session
      gains an identity after successful authentication. The identity is
      used in combination with VCAR to determine access to data in the
      CS.

   User Group (UG) -  A collection of Calendar Users and/or User Groups.
      These groups are expanded by the CS and may reside either locally
      or in an external database or directory.  The group membership may
      be fixed or dynamic over time.

2. Additions to iCalendar

   Several new components, properties, parameters, and value types are
   added in CAP. This section summarizes those new objects.

   This memo extends the properties that can go into 'calprops' as
   defined in [iCAL] section 4.6 page 51 to allow [iTIP] objects
   transmitted between a CAP aware CUA and the CS to contain the
   "TARGET" and "CMD" properties. This memo also adds to the [iCAL] ABNF
   to allow IANA and experimental extensions. This memo does not address
   how a CUA transmits [iTIP] or [iMIP] objects to non CAP programs.


   calprops   = 2*(

              ; 'prodid' and 'version' are both REQUIRED,
              ; but MUST NOT occur more than once.
              ;
                prodid /version /

              ; These are optional, but MUST NOT occur
              ; more than once.
              ;
                calscale        /
                method          /
                cmd             /

              ; Target is optional, and may occur more
              ; than once.
              ;
                target / other-props )

    other-props  = *(x-prop) *(iana-prop) *(other-props)

    iana-prop   = ; Any property registered by IANA directly or
                  ; included in an RFC that may be applied to
                  ; the component and within the rules published.

    x-prop      = ; As defined in [iCAL]


   Another change is that the 'component' part of the 'icalbody' ABNF as
   described in [iCAL] section 4.6 is optional when sending a command as
   shown in the following updated ABNF:

   icalbody = calprops component

             ; If the "VCALENDAR" component contains the "CMD"

             ; property then the 'component' is optional:
             ;
             / calprops     ; Which MUST include a "CMD" property


   In addition a problem exists with the control of "VALARM" components
   and their "TRIGGER" properties. A CU may wish to set their own alarm
   (local alarms) on components. These local alarms are not to be
   forwarded to other CUs, CUAs, or CSs as are the "SEQUENCE" property
   and the "ENABLE" parameter. So for the protocol between a CUA and a
   CS, the following changes apply to the CAP protocol from [iCAL]
   section 4.6.6 page 67:


     alarmc     = "BEGIN" ":" "VALARM" CRLF
               alarm-seq
                  other-props
               (audioprop / dispprop / emailprop / procprop)
               "END" ":" "VALARM" CRLF

    alarm-seq   = "SEQUENCE" alarmseqparams ":" posint0 CRLF

   alarmseqparams = other-params [";" local-param] other-params

                  ; Where DIGIT is defined in [iCAL]
                  ;
    posint0     = 1*DIGIT
    posint1     = posintfirst 1*DIGIT

                  ; A number starting with 1 through 9.
                  ;
    posintfirst = %x31-39

    other-params = *(";" xparam) *(";" iana-params) *(";" other-param)

    iana-params = ; Any parameter registered by IANA directly or
                  ; included in an RFC that may be applied to
                  ; the property and within the rules published.

    xparam        ; As defined in [iCAL]


   The CUA adds a "SEQUENCE" property to each "VALARM" component as it
   books the component. This property along with the "LOCAL" and
   "ENABLE" parameters allow the CUA to uniquely identify any VALARM in
   any component. The CUA should remove those before forwarding to non
   CAP aware CUAs.

   In addition, if a CUA wished to ignore a "TRIGGER" property in a
   "VALARM" component that was supplied to it by the "Organizer", the
   CUA needs a common way to tag that trigger as disabled. So the
   following is a modification to [iCAL] section 4.8.6.3 page 127:


   trigger    = "TRIGGER" 1*(";" enable-param) (trigrel / trigabs)


   Section 7.2 and Section 7.5.

2.1 New Value Types (summary)

   UPN The UPN value type is text value type restricted to only UPN
      values. (Section 6.1.2)

   UPN-FILTER Like the UPN value type, but also includes filter rules
      that allow wildcards. (Section 6.1.3)

   CALQUERY The "CAL-QUERY" value type is a query syntax that is used by
      the CUA to specify the rules that apply to a CAP command. (Section
      6.1.1)


2.1.1 New Parameters (summary)

   ACTION -  The "ACTION" parameter informs the endpoint if it should
      abort or ask to continue on timeout. (Section 7.1).

   ENABLE -  The "ENABLE" parameter in CAP is used to tag a property in
      a component as disabled or enabled. (Section 7.2).

   ID -  The "ID" parameter specifies a unique identifier to be used for
      any outstanding commands.

   LATENCY -  The "LATENCY" parameter supplies the timeout value for
      command completion to the other endpoint. (Section 7.4).

   LOCAL -  The "LOCAL" parameter in CAP is used to tag a property in a
      component to signify that the component is local or to be
      distributed. (Section 7.5).

   LOCALIZE -  The "LOCALIZE" parameter specifies the locale to be used
      in error and warning messages.

   OPTIONS -  The "OPTIONS" parameter passes optional information for
      the command being sent.

Internet-Draft       Calendar Access Protocol (CAP)            July 2003


   SEQUENCE -  When the "SEQUENCE" parameter is used in a "VALARM"
      component it uniquely identifies the instances of the "VALARM"
      within that component.


2.1.2 New Properties (summary)

   ALLOW-CONFLICT -  Some entries in a calendar might not be valid if
      other entries were allowed to overlap the same time span. (Section
      8.1)

   ATT-COUNTER -  When storing a "METHOD" property with the "COUNTER"
      method, there needs to be a way to remember the "ATTENDEE" value
      that sent the COUNTER. (Section 8.2)

   CSID -  The Calendar Store IDentifier (CSID) uniquely identifies a
      CAP server. (Section 8.9)

   CALID -  Each calendar within a CS needs to be uniquely identifiable.
      The "CALID" property identifies a unique calendar within a CS. It
      can be a full CALID or a relative CALID. (Section 8.3)

   CALMASTER -  The "CALMASTER" property specifies the contact
      information for the CS. (Section 8.4)

   CARID -  Access rights can be saved and fetched by unique ID - the
      "CARID" property. (Section 8.6)

   CMD -  The CAP commands, as well as replies are transmitted using the
      "CMD" property. (Section 10.1)

   DECREED -  Some access rights are not changeable by the CUA. When
      that is the case, the "DECREED" property value in the "VCAR"
      component will be TRUE. (Section 8.10)

   DEFAULT-CHARSET -  The list of charsets supported by the CS. The
      first entry is the default for the CS. (Section 8.11)

      will denied access as described in the "VRIGHT" component.
      (Section 8.15)

   EXPAND -  This property tells the CS if the query reply should expand
      components into multiple instances. The default is FALSE and is
      ignored for CSs that can not expand recurrence rules. (Section
      8.16)

   GRANT -  The UPNs listed in the "GRANT" property of a "VCAR"
      component will allowed access as described in the "VRIGHT"
      component. (Section 8.17)

      descriptions into components. (Section 8.23)

   OWNER -  Each calendar has at least one "OWNER" property. (xref
      target="OWNER"/>) Related to the "CAL-OWNERS()" (Section 6.1.1.1)
      query clause.

   PERMISSION -  This property specifies the permission being granted or
      denied. Examples are the "SEARCH" and "MODIFY" values. (Section
      8.25)

   QUERY -  Used to hold the CAL-QUERY (Section 8.26) for the component.

   QUERYID -  A unique id for a stored query. (Section 8.27)

   QUERY-LEVEL -  The level of the query language supported. (Section
      8.29)

   RECUR-ACCEPTED -  If the implementation support recurrence rules.
      (Section 8.30)

   REQUEST-STATUS -  The [iCAL] "REQUEST-STATUS" property is extended to
      include new error numbers. (Section 8.28)

   RESTRICTION -  In the final check when granting calendar access
      requests, the CS test the results to the value of the
      "RESTRICTION" property in the corresponding "VRIGHT" component to
      determine if the access meets that restriction. (Section 8.33)

   SCOPE -  The "SCOPE" property is used in "VRIGHT"s component to
      select the subset of data that may be acted upon when checking
      access rights. (Section 8.34)

   STORES-EXPANDED -  Specifies if the implementation stores recurring
      object expanded or not. (Section 8.35)

   TARGET -  The new "VCALENDAR" component property "TARGET" (Section
      8.36) is used to specify which calendar(s) will be the subject of
      the CAP command.

   TRANSP -  This is a modification the [iCAL] "TRANSP" property and it
      allows more values. The new values are related to conflict
      control. (Section 8.37)


2.1.3 New Components (summary)

   VAGENDA -  CAP allows the fetching and storing of the entire contents
      of a calendar. The "VCALENDAR" component is not sufficient to
      encapsulate all of the needed data that describes a calendar. The
      "VAGENDA" component is the encapsulating object for an entire
      calendar. (Section 9.1)

Internet-Draft       Calendar Access Protocol (CAP)            July 2003


   VCALSTORE -  Each CS contains one or more calendars (VAGENDAs), the
      "VCALSTORE" component is the encapsulating object that can hold
      all of the "VAGENDA" components along with any components and
      properties that are unique to the store level. (Section 9.2)

   VCAR -  Calendar Access Rights are specified and encapsulated in the
      new iCalendar "VCAR" component. The "VCAR" component holds some
      new properties and at least one "VRIGHT" component. (Section 9.3)

   VRIGHT -  This component encapsulates a set of instructions to the CS
      that define the rights or restrictions needed. (Section 9.4)

   VREPLY -  This component encapsulates a set of data that can consist
      of an arbitrary amounts of properties and components. Its contents
      is dependent on the command that was issued. (Section 9.5)

   VQUERY -  The search operation makes use of a new component, called
      "VQUERY" and a new value type "CAL-QUERY" (Section 6.1.1). The
      "VQUERY" component is used to fetch objects from the CS. (Section
      9.6)


2.2 Relationship of RFC-2446 (ITIP) and CAP

   [iTIP] describes scheduling methods which result in indirect
   manipulation of components. In CAP, the "CREATE" command is used to
   deposit entities into the store. Other CAP commands such as "DELETE",
   "MODIFY" and "MOVE" command values provide direct manipulation of
   components. In the CAP calendar store model, scheduling messages are
   conceptually kept separate from other components by their state.

   All scheduling operations and are as define in [iTIP]. This memo
   makes no changes to any of the methods or procedures described in
   [iTIP]. In this memo referring to the presence of the "METHOD"
   property in an object is the same as saying an [iTIP] object.

   A CUA may create a "BOOKED" state object by depositing an iCalendar
   object into the store. This is done by depositing an object that does
   not have a "METHOD" property. The CS then knows to set the state of
   the object to the "BOOKED" state. If the object has a "METHOD"
   property then the object is stored in the "UNPROCESSED" state.

   If existing "UNPROCESSED" state objects exist in the CS for the same
   UID then a CUA may wish to consolidate the objects in to one "BOOKED"
   state object. The CUA would fetch the "UNPROCESSED" state objects for
   that UID and process them in the CUA as described in [iTIP]. Then if

   by a "DELETE" command to remove any related old [iTIP] objects from
   the CS. And it might also involve having the CUA send some [iMIP]
   objects or contacting other CSs and performing CAP operations on
   those CSs.

   The CUA could also decide not to book the object. In which case the
   "UNPROCESSED" state objects could be removed from the CS or the CUA
   could set those object to the marked for delete state. The CUA could
   also ignore objects for later processing.

   The marked for delete state is used to keep the object around so that
   the CUA can process duplicate requests automatically. If a duplicate
   [iTIP] object is deposited into the CS and there exists identical
   marked for delete objects, then a CUA acting on behalf of the "OWNER"
   can silently drop those duplicate entries.

   Another purpose for the marked for delete state is so that when a CU
   decides they do not wish to have the object show in their calendar,
   the CUA can book the object; changing the "PARTSTAT" parameter to
   "DECLINED" in the "ATTENDEE" property that corresponds to their UPN.
   Perform an [iTIP] processing such as sending back a decline. Then
   mark that object as marked for delete. Their CUA might be
   configurable to automatically drop any updates for that object
   knowing the CU has already declined.

   When synchronizing with multiple CUAs, the marked for delete state
   could be used to inform the synchronization process that an object is
   to be deleted. How synchronization is done is not specified in this
   memo.

   Several "UNPROCESSED" state entries can be in the CS for the same
   UID. However once consolidated, then only one object exists in the CS
   and that is the booked object. The others MUST BE removed, or have
   their state changed to "DELETED".

   There MUST NOT BE more than one "BOOKED" state object in a calendar
   for the same "UID". The "ADD" method value may create multiple
   objects all in the "BOOKED" state for the same UID, however for the
   purpose of this memo, they are the same object that simply have
   multiple "VCALENDAR" components.

   For example, if you were on vacation, you could have receive a
   "REQUEST" method to attend a meeting and several updates to that
   meeting. Your CUA would have to issue "SEARCH" commands to find them
   in the CS using CAP, process them, determine what the final state of
   the object from a possible combination of user input and programmed
   logic. Then the CUA would instruct the CS to create a new booked
   object from the consolidated results. Finally, the CUA could do a

3. CAP Design

3.1 System Model

   The system model describes the high level components of a calendar
   system and how they interact with each other.

   CAP is used by a CUA to send commands to and receive responses from a
   CS.

   The CUA prepares a [MIME] encapsulated command, sends it to the CS,
   and receives a [MIME] encapsulated response. The calendaring related
   information within these messages are represented by iCalendar
   objects. In addition the "GET-CAPABILITY" command can be sent from
   the CS to the CUA.

   There are two distinct protocols in operation to accomplish this
   exchange. [BEEP] is the transport protocol is used to move these
   encapsulations between a CUA and a CS. CAP's [BEEP] profile defines
   the application protocol where the content and semantics of the
   messages sent between the CUA and the CS are specified.

3.2 Calendar Store Object Model

   [iCAL] describes components such as events, todos, alarms, and
   timezones. [CAP] requires additional object infrastructure. In
   particular,  detailed definitions of the containers for events and
   todos (calendars), access control objects, and a query language.

   The conceptual model for a calendar store is shown below. The
   calendar store (VCALSTORE - Section 9.2) contains "VCAR"s, "VQUERY"s,
   "VTIMEZONE"s, "VAGENDA"s and calendar store properties.

   Calendars (VAGENDAs) contain "VEVENT"s, "VTODO"s, "VJOURNAL"s,
   "VCAR"s, "VTIMEZONE"s, "VFREEBUSY", "VQUERY"s and calendar
   properties.

   The component "VCALSTORE" is used to denote the a root of the
   calendar store and contains all of the calendars.

   Calendars within a Calendar Store are identified by their unique
   Relative CALID.

3.3 Protocol Model

   CAP uses beep as the transport and authentication protocol.

   The initial charset MUST BE UTF-8 for the session in an unknown
   locale. If the CS supplied the [BEEP] 'localize' attribute in the
   [BEEP] 'greeting' then the CUA may tell the CS to switch locales for
   the session by issuing the "SET-LOCALE" CAP command and supplying one
   of the locales supplied by the [BEEP] 'localize' attribute. If
   supplied the first locale supplied in the [BEEP] 'localize' attribute
   is the default locale of the CS. The locale is switched only after a
   successful reply.

   The "DEFAULT-CHARSET" property of the CS contains the list of
   charsets supported by the CS with the first value being the default
   for new calendars. If the CUA wishes to switch to one of those
   charsets for the session, the CUA issues the "SET-LOCALE" command.
   The CUA would have to first perform a "GET-CAPABILITY" command on the
   CS to get the list of charsets supported by the CS. The charset is
   switched only after a successful reply.



Royer, et al.           Expires January 25, 2004               [Page 22]


Internet-Draft       Calendar Access Protocol (CAP)            July 2003


   The CUA may switch locales and charsets as needed. There is no
   requirement that a CS support multiple locales or charsets.

3.3.1 Use of BEEP, MIME and iCalendar

   CAP uses the [BEEP] application protocol over TCP. (refer to [BEEP]
   and [BEEPTCP] for more information). The default port that the CS
   listens for connections is on user port 1026.

   The [BEEP] data exchanged in CAP is a iCalendar MIME content that
   fully conforms to [iCAL] iCalendar format.

   This example tells the CS to generate and return 10 UIDs to be used
   by the CUA. Note throughout this memo, 'C:' refers to what the CUA
   sends, 'S:' refers to what the CS sends, 'I:' refers to what the
   initiator sends, and 'L:' refers to what the listener sends. Where
   initiator and listener are used as defined in [BEEP].


   C: MSG 1 2 . 432 62
   C: Content-Type: text/calendar
   C:
   C: BEGIN:VCALENDAR
   C: VERSION:2.0
   C: PRODID:-//someone's prodid
   C: CMD;ID=unique-per-cua-123;OPTIONS=10:GENERATE-UID
   C: END:VCALENDAR


   NOTE: The following examples will not include the [BEEP] header and
   footer information. Only the iCalendar objects that are sent between
   the CUA and CS will be shown as the [BEEP] payload boundaries are
   independent of CAP.

   The commands listed below are used to manipulate or access the data
   on the calendar store:

   ABORT -  Sent to halt the processing of some of the commands.
      (Section 10.1.2)

   CONTINUE -  Sent to continue processing a command that has had its
      specified timeout time reached. (Section 10.1.3)

   CREATE -  Create a new object on the CS. This can be implied for
      [iTIP] objects. Initiated by the CUA only. (Section 10.1.4)

   MOVE -  Move components to another container. Initiated by the CUA
      only. (Section 10.6)

   REPLY -  When replying to a command, the "CMD" value will be set to
      "REPLY" so that it will not be confused with a new command.
      (Section 10.7)

   SEARCH -  Search for components. Initiated by the CUA only. (Section
      10.8)

   TIMEOUT -  Sent when a specified amount of time has lapsed and a

4. Security Model

   The [BEEP] transport performs all session authentication.

4.1 Calendar User and UPNs

   A CU is an entity that can be authenticated. It is represented in CAP
   as a UPN, which is a key part of access rights.  The UPN
   representation is independent of the authentication mechanism used
   during a particular CUA/CS interaction. This is because UPNs are used
   within VCARs. If the UPN were dependent on the authentication
   mechanism, a VCAR could not be consistently evaluated. A CU may use
   one mechanism while using one CUA but the same CU may use a different
   authentication mechanism when using a different CUA, or while
   connecting from a different location.

   The user may also have multiple UPNs for various purposes.

   Note that the immutability of the user's UPN may be achieved by using
   SASL's authorization identity feature. (The transmitted authorization
   identity may be different than the identity in the client's
   authentication credentials.) [SASL, section 3]. This also permits a
   CU to authenticate using their own credentials, yet request the
   access privileges of the identity for which they are proxying SASL.
   Also, the form of authentication identity supplied by a service like
   TLS may not correspond to the UPNs used to express a server's access
   rights, requiring a server specific mapping to be done. The method by
   which a server determines a UPN, based on the authentication
   credentials supplied by a client, is implementation specific. See
   [BEEP] for authentication details; [BEEP] relies on SASL.

4.1.1 UPNs and Certificates

   When using X.509 certificates for purposes of CAP authentication, the
   UPN should appear in the certificate. Unfortunately there is no
   single correct guideline for which field should contain the UPN.

   From RFC-2459, section 4.1.2.6 (Subject):

      If subject naming information is present only in the
      subjectAlt-Name extension (e.g., a key bound only to an email
      address or URI), then the subject name MUST be an empty sequence
      and the subjectAltName extension MUST BE critical.

      Implementations of this specification MAY use these comparison
      rules to process unfamiliar attribute types (i.e., for name
      chaining). This allows implementations to process certificates
      with unfamiliar attributes in the subject name.



Royer, et al.           Expires January 25, 2004               [Page 25]


Internet-Draft       Calendar Access Protocol (CAP)            July 2003


      In addition, legacy implementations exist where an RFC 2822 name
      is embedded in the subject distinguished name as an EmailAddress
      attribute.  The attribute value for EmailAddress is of type
      IA5String to permit inclusion of the character '@', which is not
      part of the PrintableString character set. EmailAddress attribute
      values are not case sensitive (e.g., "fanfeedback@redsox.com" is
      the same as "FANFEEDBACK@REDSOX.COM").

      Conforming implementations generating new certificates with
      electronic mail addresses MUST use the rfc822Name in the subject
      alternative name field (see sec. 4.2.1.7 of [X509CRL]) to describe
      such identities. Simultaneous inclusion of the EmailAddress
      attribute in the subject distinguished name to support legacy
      implementations is deprecated but permitted.

   Since no single method of including the UPN in the certificate will
   work in all cases, CAP implementations MUST support the ability to
   configure what the mapping will be by the CS administrator.
   Implementations MAY support multiple mapping definitions, for
   example, the UPN may be found in either the subject alternative name
   field, or the UPN may be embedded in the subject distinguished name
   as an EmailAddress attribute.

   Note: If a CS or CUA is validating data received via [iMIP], if the
   "ORGANIZER" or "ATTENDEE" properties said (e.g.) "ATTENDEE;CN=Joe
   Random User:MAILTO:juser@example.com" then the email address should
   be checked against the UPN. This is so the "ATTENDEE" property cannot
   be changed to something misleading like "ATTENDEE;CN=Joe Rictus
   User:MAILTO:jrictus@example.com" and have it pass validation. Note
   that it is the email addresses that miscompare, the CN miscompare is
   irrelevant.

4.1.2 Anonymous Users and Authentication

   Anonymous access is often desirable. For example an organization may
   publish calendar information that does not require any access control
   for viewing or login. Conversely, a user may wish to view
   unrestricted calendar information without revealing their identity.

4.1.3 User Groups

   A User Group is used to represent a collection of CUs or other UGs
   that can be referenced in VCARs. A UG is represented in CAP as a UPN.
   The CUA cannot distinguish between a UPN that represents a CU or a
   UG.

   UGs are expanded as necessary by the CS. The CS MAY expand a UG
   (including nested UGs) to obtain a list of unique CUs. Duplicate UPNs



Royer, et al.           Expires January 25, 2004               [Page 26]


Internet-Draft       Calendar Access Protocol (CAP)            July 2003


   are filtered during expansion.

   How the UG expansion is maintained across commands is implementation
   specific. A UG may reference a static list of members, or it may
   represent a dynamic list. Operations SHOULD recognize changes to UG
   membership.

   CAP does not define commands or methods for managing UGs.

4.2 Access Rights

   Access rights are used to grant or deny access to calendars,
   components, properties, and parameters in a CS to a CU. CAP defines a
   new component type called a Calendar Access Right (VCAR).
   Specifically, a "VCAR" component grants, or denies, UPNs the right to
   search and write components, properties, and parameters on calendars
   within a CS.

   The "VCAR" component model does not put any restriction on the
   sequence in which the object and access rights are created. That is,
   an object associated with a particular "VCAR" component might be
   created before or after the actual "VCAR" component is defined. In
   addition, the "VCAR" and "VEVENT" components might be created in the
   same iCalendar object and passed together in a single object.

   All rights MUST BE denied unless specifically granted.

   If two rights specified in "VCAR" components are in conflict, the
   right that denies access always takes precedence over the right that
   grants access. Any attempt to create a "VCAR" component that
   conflicts with a "VCAR" components with a "DECREED" property set to
   the "TRUE" value must fail.

4.2.1 Access Control and NOCONFLICT

   The "TRANSP" property can take on values "TRANSPARENT-NOCONFLICT" and
   "OPAQUE-NOCONFLICT" that prohibit other components from overlapping
   it. This setting overrides access. The "ALLOW-CONFLICT" CS, Calendar
   or component setting may also prevent overlap, returning an error
   code "6.3".

4.2.2 Predefined VCARs

   Predefined calendar access CARIDs that MUST BE implemented are:

Internet-Draft       Calendar Access Protocol (CAP)            July 2003


   CARID:READBUSYTIMEINFO -  Specifies the "GRANT" and "DENY" rules that
      allow UPNs to search "VFREEBUSY" components. An example definition
      for this VCAR is:




    BEGIN:VCAR
    CARID:READBUSYTIMEINFO
    BEGIN:VRIGHT
    GRANT:*
    PERMISSION:SEARCH
    SCOPE:SELECT * FROM VFREEBUSY WHERE STATE() = 'BOOKED'
    END:VRIGHT
    END:VCAR


   CARID:REQUESTONLY -  Specifies the "GRANT" and "DENY" rules to UPNs
      other than the owner of the calendar the ability to write new
      objects with the property "METHOD" property set to the "REQUEST"
      value. This CARID allows the owner to specify which UPNs are
      allowed to make scheduling requests. An example definition for
      this VCAR is:




    BEGIN:VCAR
    CARID:REQUESTONLY
    BEGIN:VRIGHT
    GRANT:NON CAL-OWNERS()
    PERMISSION:CREATE
    RESTRICTION:SELECT VEVENT FROM VAGENDA WHERE METHOD = 'REQUEST'
    RESTRICTION:SELECT VTODO FROM VAGENDA WHERE METHOD = 'REQUEST'
    RESTRICTION:SELECT VJOURNAL FROM VAGENDA WHERE METHOD = 'REQUEST'
    END:VRIGHT
    END:VCAR


   CARID:UPDATEPARTSTATUS -  Grants to authenticated users the right to
      modify the instances of the "ATTENDEE" property set to one of
      their calendar addresses in any components for any booked
      component containing an "ATTENDEE" property. This allows (or
      denies) a CU the ability to update their own participation status
      in a calendar where they might not otherwise have "MODIFY" command
      access. They are not allowed to change the "ATTENDEE" property
      value. An example definition for this VCAR is (This example only
      affects the "VEVENT" components):

    PERMISSION:MODIFY
    SCOPE:SELECT ATTENDEE FROM VEVENT

     AND ORGANIZER = CURRENT-TARGET()
     AND STATE() = 'BOOKED'
    RESTRICTION:SELECT * FROM VEVENT
     WHERE ATTENDEE = SELF()
    END:VRIGHT
    END:VCAR


   CARID:DEFAULTOWNER -  Grants to any owner the permission they have
      for the target. An example definition for this VCAR is:




    BEGIN:VCAR
    CARID:DEFAULTOWNER
    BEGIN:VRIGHT
    GRANT:CAL-OWNERS()
    PERMISSION:*
    SCOPE:SELECT * FROM VAGENDA
    END:VRIGHT
    END:VCAR



4.2.3 Decreed VCARs

   A CS MAY choose to implement and allow persistent immutable VCARs
   that may be configured by the CS administrator. A reply from the CS
   may dynamically create "VCAR" components that are decreed depending
   on the implementation. To the CUA any "VCAR" component with the
   "DECREED" property set to "TRUE" can not be changed by the currently
   authenticated UPN, and depending on the implementation and other
   "VCAR" components; might not be able to be changed by any UPN using
   CAP, and never when the CUA gets a "DECREED:TRUE" VCAR.

   When a user attempts to modify or override a decreed "VCAR" component
   rules an error will be returned indicating that the user has

   insufficient authorization to perform the operation. The reply to the
   CUA MUST BE the same as if a non-decreed VCAR caused the failure.

   The CAP protocol does not define the semantics used to initially
   create a decreed VCAR. This administrative task is outside the scope
   of the CAP protocol.

   For example; an implementation or a CS administrator may wish to
   define a VCAR that will always allow the calendar owners to have full
   access to their own calendars.

   Decreed "VCAR" components MUST BE readable by the calendar owner in
   standard "VCAR" component format.

4.3 CAP Session Identity

   A [BEEP] session has an associated set of authentication credentials,
   from which is derived a UPN. This UPN is the identity of the CAP
   session, and is used to determine access rights for the session.

   The CUA may change the identity of a CAP session by calling the
   "IDENTIFY" command. The CS only permits the operation if the
   session's authentication credentials are good for the requested
   identity. The method of checking this permission is implementation
   dependent, but may be thought of as a mapping from authentication
   credentials to UPNs. The "IDENTIFY" command allows a single set of
   authentication credentials to choose from multiple identities, and
   allows multiple sets of authentication credentials to assume the same
   identity.

   For anonymous access the identity of the session is "@". A UPN with a
   null Username and null Realm is anonymous. A UPN with a null
   Username, but non-null Realm, such as "@foo.com" may be used to mean
   any identity from that Realm, which is useful to grant access rights
   to all users in a given Realm. A UPN with a non-null Username and
   null Realm, such as "bob@" could be a security risk and MUST NOT be
   used.

   As the UPN includes Realm information it may be used to govern
   calendar store access rights across Realms. However, governing access
   rights across Realms is only useful if login access is available.
   This could be done through a trusted server relationship or a
   temporary account. Note that trusted server relationships are outside
   the scope of [CAP].

   The "IDENTIFY" command also provides for a weak group implementation.
   By allowing multiple sets of authentication credentials belonging to
   different users to identify as the same UPN, that UPN essentially

5. CAP URL and Calendar Address

   The CAP URL scheme is used to designate calendar stores and calendars
   accessible using the CAP protocol.

   The CAP URL scheme conform to the generic URL syntax, defined in RFC
   2396, and follows the Guidelines for URL Schemes, set forth in RFC
   2718.

   A CAP URL begins with the protocol prefix "cap" and is defined by the
   following grammar.


   capurl   = "cap://" csid [ "/" relcalid ]
   csid     = hostport   ; As defined in Section 3.2.2 of RFC 2396
   relcalid = *uric      ; As defined in Section 2 of RFC 2396


   A 'relcalid' is an identifier that uniquely identifies a calendar on
   a particular calendar store. There is no implied structure in a
   Relative CALID. It may refer to the calendar of a user or of a
   resource such as a conference room. It MUST BE unique within the
   calendar store.

   Examples:


   cap://cal.example.com
   cap://cal.example.com/Company/Holidays
   cap://cal.example.com/abcd1234Usr


   Relative CAP URLs are permitted and are resolved according to the
   rules defined in Section 5 of RFC 2396.

   Examples of valid relative CAP URLs:


   opqaueXzz123String
   UserName/Personal


   A Calendar addresses can be described as qualified or relative CAP
   URLs.

   For a user currently authenticated to the CS on cal.example.com,
   these two example calendar addresses refer to the same calendar:

6. New Value Types

   The following sections contains new components, properties,
   parameters, and value definitions.

   The purpose of these is to extend the iCalendar objects in a
   compatible way so that existing iCalendar "VERSION" property "2.0"
   value parsers can still parse the objects without modification.

6.1 Property Value Data Types

6.1.1 CAL-QUERY Value Type

   Subject: Registration of text/calendar MIME value type CAL-QUERY

   Value Name: CAL-QUERY

   Value Type Purpose: This value type is used to identify values and
   contains query statements targeted at locating those values.

   This is based on [SQL92] and [SQLCOM].

   1.  For the purpose of a query, all components should be handled as
       tables, and the properties of those components, should be handled
       as columns.

   2.  All VAGENDAs and CSs look like tables for the purpose of a QUERY.
       And all of their properties look like columns in those tables.

   3.  You CAN NOT do any cross component-type joins. And that means you
       can ONLY have one component, OR one "VAGENDA" component OR one
       "VCALSTORE" component in the "FROM" clause.

   4.  Everything in the "SELECT" clause and "WHERE" clauses in MUST BE
       from the same component type, or "VAGENDA" component OR
       "VCALSTORE" component in the "FROM" clause.

   5.  When multiple "QUERY" properties are supplied in a single
       "VQUERY" component, the results returned are the same as the
       results returned for multiple "VQUERY" components having each a
       single "QUERY" property.

   6.  The '.' is used to separate the table name (component) and column
       name (property or component) when selecting a property that is
       contained inside of a component that is targeted in the TARGET
       property.

   7.  A contained component without a '.' is not the same as

       "component-name.*". If given as "component-name" (no dot) the
       encapsulating BEGIN/END statement will be supplied for
       "component-name".:

   In this example the '.' is used to separate the "TRIGGER" property
   from its contained component (VALARM). Which is contained in any
   "VEVENT" component in the selected "TARGET" property value (a
   relcalid). All "TRIGGER" properties in any "VEVENT" component in
   relcalid would be returned.



   TARGET:relcalid
   QUERY:SELECT VALARM.TRIGGER FROM VEVENT




   SELECT VALARM FROM VEVENT WHERE UID = "123"

   This return one BEGIN/END "VALARM" component for each
   "VALARM" component in the matching "VEVENT" component.
   As there is no '.' (dot) in the VALARM after the SELECT above:

   BEGIN:VALARM
   TRIGGER;RELATED=END:PT5M
   REPEAT:4
   ...
   END:VALARM
   BEGIN:VALARM
   TRIGGER;RELATED=START:PT5M
   DURATION:PT10M
   ...
   END:VALARM
   ...
   ...


   If provided as "component-name.*", then only the properties and any
   contained components will be returned:



   SELECT VALARM.* FROM VEVENT WHERE UID = "123"

   Will return all of the properties in each "VALARM" component
   in the matching "VEVENT" component:

   Note:
       (a) Selects all instances of <a-property-name>
        from all "VEVENT" components.

       (b) and (c) Select all "VALARM" components from all
        "VEVENT" components. (b) would return then in
        BEGIN/END VALARM tags. (c) would return all
        of the properties without BEGIN/END VALARM tags.

       (d) Selects every property and every component
        that is in any "VEVENT" component. With each "VEVENT"
           component wrapped in a BEGIN/END VALARM tags.

       (e) Selects all properties and all contained
        components in all "VEVENT" components that have a "VALARM"
        component with a "TRIGGER" property value between
        the provided dates and times.  With each "VEVENT"
           component wrapped in a BEGIN/END VALARM tags.

   NOT VALID:

       (f) SELECT VEVENT.VALARM.TRIGGER FROM VEVENT

       (g) SELECT DTSTART,UID FROM VEVENT WHERE
         VTODO.SUMMERY = "Fix typo in CAP"

   Note: (f) Is NOT valid because it contains
        two '.' characters in the "SELECT" clause.

       (g) Is NOT valid because it mixes VEVENT
        and VTODO properties in the same VQUERY.

   notation:

6.1.1.1 [NOT] CAL-OWNERS()

   This function returns the list of "OWNER" properties for the named
   calendar when used in the "SELECT" clause.

   If called as 'CAL-OWNERS()', it is equivalent to the comma separated
   list of all of the owners of the calendar that match the provided
   "TARGET" property value. If the target is a "VCALSTORE", it returns
   the "CALMASTER" property.

   If called as 'CAL-OWNERS(cal-address)', then it is the equivalent to
   the comma separated list of owners for the named calendar id. If
   'cal-address' is a CS, it returns the "CALMASTER" property.

   If used in the in the "WHERE" clause it then returns true if the
   currently authenticated UPN is an owner of the currently selected
   object matched in the provided "TARGET" property. Used in a CAL-QUERY
   "WHERE" clause and in the UPN-FILTER.

6.1.1.2 CURRENT-TARGET()

   Is equivalent to the value of the "TARGET" property in the current
   command. Used in a CAL-QUERY "WHERE" clause.

6.1.1.3 PARAM()

   Used in a CAL-QUERY. Returns or tests for the value of the named
   parameter from the named property.

6.1.1.3.1 PARAM() in SELECT

   When used in a "SELECT" clause, it returns the entire property and
   all of that properties parameters (the result is not limited to the
   supplied parameter). If the property does not contain the named
   parameter, then the property is not returned (It could however be
   returned as a result of another "SELECT" clause value.) If multiple
   properties of the supplied name have the named parameter, all
   properties with that named parameter are returned. If multiple
   PARAM() clauses in a single "SELECT" CLAUSE match the same property,



Royer, et al.           Expires January 25, 2004               [Page 40]


Internet-Draft       Calendar Access Protocol (CAP)            July 2003


   then the single matching property is returned only once.

   Also note that many parameters have default values defined in [iCAL]
   that must be treated as existing with their default value in the
   properties as defined in [iCAL} even when not explicitly present. So
   for example if a query were performed with PARAM(ATTENDEE,ROLE) then
   ALL "ATTENDEE" properties would match because even when they do not
   explicitly contain the "ROLE" parameter, it has a default value and
   therefore must match.

   So when PARAM() is used in a "SELECT" clause, then it is more
   accurate to say that it means return the property if it contains the
   named parameter explicitly in the property or simply because the
   parameter has a default for that property.

6.1.1.3.2 PARAM() in WHERE

   When used in the "WHERE" clause, a match is true when the parameter
   value matches the compare clause according to the supplied WHERE
   values. If multiple named properties contain the named parameter,
   then each parameter value is compared in turn to the condition and if
   any match, then the results would be true for that condition the same
   as if only one had existed. Each matching properties or components
   are returned only once.

   As a parameter may be multivalued then the comparison might need to
   be done with an "IN" or "NOT IN" comparator.

   Given the following query:

     ATTENDEE;PARTSTAT=ACCEPTED:cap://host.com/joe

     SELECT VEVENT FROM VAGENDA
      WHERE PARAM(ATTENDEE,PARTSTAT) = 'ACCEPTED'

   Then all "VEVENT" components that contain one or more "ATTENDEE"
   properties that have a "PARTSTAT" parameter with a "ACCEPTED" value
   would be returned. And each uniquely matching VEVENT would only be
   returned once no matter how many "ATTENDEE" properties had matching
   roles in each unique "VEVENT" component.

   Also note that many parameters have default values defined in [iCAL].
   So if the following query were performed on the "ATTENDEE" property
   in the above example:

     SELECT VEVENT FROM VAGENDA
      WHERE PARAM(ATTENDEE,ROLE) = 'REQ-PARTICIPANT'

Internet-Draft       Calendar Access Protocol (CAP)            July 2003


   It would return the "ATTENDEE" property exampled above because the
   default value for the "ROLE" parameter is "REQ-PARTICIPANT".

6.1.1.4 SELF()

   Used in a CAL-QUERY "WHERE" clause. Returns the UPN of the currently
   authenticated UPN or their current UPN as a result of an IDENTIFY
   command.

6.1.1.5 STATE()

   Returns one of three values, "BOOKED", "UNPROCESSED", or "DELETED"
   depending on the state of the object. Where "DELETED" is a component
   in the marked for delete state. Components that have been removed
   from the store are never returned.

6.1.1.6 Use of single quote

   All literal values are surrounded by single quotes ('), not double
   quotes ("), and not without any quotes. If the value contains quotes
   or any other ESCAPED-CHAR, they MUST BE backslash escaped as
   described in section 4.3.11 "Text" of [iCAL]. Any "LIKE" clause
   wildcard characters that are part of any literal data that is
   preceded by a "LIKE" clause or "NOT LIKE" clause and is not intended
   to mean wildcard search MUST BE escaped.

6.1.1.7 Comparing DATE and DATE-TIME values

   When comparing "DATE-TIME" values to "DATE" values and when comparing
   "DATE" values to "DATE-TIME" values, the result will be true if the
   "DATE" value is on the same day as the "DATE-TIME" value. And they
   are compared in UTC no matter what time zone the data may actual have
   been stored in.

   Local time event as descibed in section 4.2.19 of [iCAL] must be
   considered to be in the CUA default timezone that was supplied by the
   CUA in the "CAPABILITY" exchange.

   (in UTC-3)          (in UTC-3)

   20020304            20020304T003456    FALSE

   (in UTC-0)          (in UTC-7)


   When comparing "DATE" values and "DATE-TIME" values with the "LIKE"
   clause the comparison will be done as if the value is a [iCAL] DATE
   or DATE-TIME string value.


   LIKE '2002%' will match anything in the year 2002.

   LIKE '200201%' will match anything in January 2002.

   LIKE '%T000000' will match anything at midnight.

   LIKE '____01__T%' will match anything for any year or
              time that is in January.
              (Four '_', '01', two '_' 'T%').


   Using a "LIKE" clause value of "%00%, would return any value that
   contained two consecutive zeros.

   All comparisons will be done in UTC.

6.1.1.8 DTEND and DURATION

   The "DTEND" property value is not included in the time occupied by
   the component. That is a "DTEND" property value of 20030614T12000
   includes all of the time up to but not including noon on that day.

   The "DURATION" property value end time is also not inclusive. So an
   object with a "DTSTART" property value of 20030514T110000 and a
   "DURATION" property value of "1H" does not include noon on that day.

   When a "QUERY" property value contains a "DTEND" value, then the CS
   MUST also evaluate any existing "DURATION" property value and
   determine if it has an effective end time that matches the "QUERY"
   property supplied "DTEND" value or any range of values supplied by
   the "QUERY" property.

   When a "QUERY" property contains a "DURATION" value, then the CS MUST
   also evaluate any existing "DTEND" property values and determine if
   they have an effective duration that matches the "QUERY" property
   value supplied "DURATION" value or any range of values supplied by
   the "QUERY" property.

6.1.1.9 [NOT] LIKE

   The pattern matching characters are the '%' that matches zero or more
   characters, and '_' that matches exactly one character (where
   character does not always mean octet).

   "LIKE" clause pattern matches always cover the entire string. To
   match a pattern anywhere within a string, the pattern must start and
   end with a percent sign.

   To match a '%' or '_' in the data and not have it interpreted as a
   wildcard character, they MUST BE backslash escaped. That is to search
   for a '%' or '_' in the string:


     LIKE '%\%%'    Matches any string with a '%' in it.
     LIKE '%\_%'    Matches any string with a '_' in it.


   Strings compared using the "LIKE" clause MUST BE performed using case
   in-sensitive comparisons when the locale allows. (Example: in
   US-ASCII the compare assumes 'a' = 'A').

   If the "LIKE" clause is preceded by 'NOT' then there is a match when
   the string compare fails.

   Some property values (such as the 'recur' value type), contain commas
   and are not multi valued. The CS must understand the objects being
   compared and understand how to determine how any multi valued or
   multi instances properties or parameter values are separated, quoted,
   and backslash escaped and perform the comparisons as if each value
   existed by itself and not quoted or backslash escaped when comparing
   using the LIKE element.

   See related examples in Section 6.1.1.11

6.1.1.10 Empty vs. NULL

   When used in a CAL-QUERY value, "NULL" means that the property or
   parameter is not present in the object. Paramaters that are not
   provided and have a default value in the property are considered to
   exist with their default value and will not be "NULL".

   If the property exists but has no value then "NULL" MUST NOT match.
   If the parameter exists but has no value then "NULL" MUST NOT match.
   If the parameter not present and has a default value then "NULL" MUST
   NOT match.

   If the property (or parameter) exists, but has no value then it
   matches the empty string '' (quote quote).

6.1.1.11 [NOT] IN

   This is similar to the "LIKE" clause, except it does value matching
   and not string comparison matches.

   Some iCalendar objects can be multi instance and multi valued. The
   "IN" clause will return a match if the literal value supplied as part
   of the "IN" clause is contained in the value of any instance of the
   named property or parameter, or is in any of the multiple values in
   the named property or parameter. Unlike the "LIKE" clause, the '%'
   and '_' matching characters are not used with the "IN" clause and
   have no special meaning.


          BEGIN:A-COMPONENT
   a       property:value1,value2        One property, two values.
   b       property:"value1,value2"      One property, one value.
   c       property:parameter=1,2:x           One parameter, two values.
   d       property:parameter="1,2",3:y       One parameter, one value.
   e       property:parameter=",":z           One parameter, one value.
   f       property:x,y,z                One property, three values
          END:A-COMPONENT

          'value1' IN property          would match (a) only.
          'value1,value2' IN property   would match (b) only.
          'value%'  IN property         would NOT match any.
          ',' IN property               would NOT match any.
          '%,%' IN property             would NOT match any.
          'x' IN property               would match (f) and (c).
          '2' IN parameter              would match (c) only.
          '1,2' IN parameter            would match (d) only.
          ',' IN parameter              would match (e) only.
          '%,%' IN parameter            would NOT match any.

          property  LIKE 'value1%'      would match (a) and (b).
          property  LIKE 'value%'       would match (a) and (b).
          property  LIKE 'x'            would match (f) and (c).
          parameter LIKE '1%'           would match (c) and (d).
          parameter LIKE '%2%'          would match (c) and (d).
          parameter LIKE ','            would match (e) only.


   Some property values (such as the "RECUR" value type), contain commas

   multi instances properties or parameter values are separated, quoted,
   and backslash escaped and perform the comparisons as if each value
   existed by itself and not quoted or backslash escaped when comparing
   using the IN element.

   If the "IN" clause is preceded by 'NOT' then there is a match when
   the value does not exist in the property or parameter value.

6.1.1.12 DATE-TIME and TIME values in a WHEN clause

   All "DATE-TIME" and "TIME" literal values supplied in a "WHEN" clause
   MUST BE terminated with 'Z'. That means that the CUA MUST supply the
   values in UTC.


   Valid:

   WHERE alarm.TRIGGER < '20020201T000000Z'
    AND alarm.TRIGGER > '20020101T000000Z'


   Not valid and it is a syntax error and the CS MUST reject the QUERY.


   WHERE alarm.TRIGGER < '20020201T000000'
   AND alarm.TRIGGER > '20020101T000000'



6.1.1.13 Multiple contained components

   All comparisons MUST BE done from the same instance of a contained
   component or property and repeated for each instance. As in the
   following example that uses a "VALARM" component contained in a
   "VEVENT" component . If any instance of a "VALARM" component in any
   "VEVENT" component  matches the query and the rest of the query is
   satisfied, then the "UID", "SUMMARY", and "DESCRIPTION" properties
   from all "VEVENT" components will be returned. If there were two
   "VALARM" components in a "VEVENT" component, then both "VALARM"
   components are tested and in this example only when the "VEVENT"
   component state is booked:



   BEGIN:VQUERY
   EXPAND:TRUE
   QUERY:SELECT UID,SUMMARY,DESCRIPTION FROM VEVENT
   WHERE VALARM.TRIGGER >= '20000101T030405Z'

   AND VALARM.TRIGGER <= '20001231T235959Z'
   AND STATE() = 'BOOKED'
   END:VQUERY



6.1.1.14 Example, Query by UID

   The following example would match the entire content of a "VEVENT" or
   "VTODO" component with the "UID" property equal to "uid123" and not
   expand any multiple instances of the component.  If the CUA does not
   know  if "uid123" was a "VEVENT", "VTODO", "VJOURNAL", or any other
   component, then all components that the CUA supports MUST BE supplied
   in a QUERY property. This example assumes the CUA is only interested
   in "VTODO" and "VEVENT" components.

   If the results were empty it could also mean that "uid123" was a
   property in a component other than a VTODO or VEVENT.


   BEGIN:VQUERY
   QUERY:SELECT * FROM VTODO WHERE UID = 'uid123'
   QUERY:SELECT * FROM VEVENT WHERE UID = 'uid123'
   END:VQUERY



6.1.1.15 Query by Date-Time range

   This query selects the entire content of every booked "VEVENT"
   component that has an instance greater than or equal to July 1st,
   2000 00:00:00 UTC and less than or equal to July 31st, 2000 23:59:59
   UTC. This includes single instance "VEVENT" components that do no
   explicitly contain any recurence properties or "RECURRENCE-ID"
   properties. This works only for CSs that have the "RECUR-EXPAND"
   property value set to "TRUE" in the "CAPABILITY" exchange.

   BEGIN:VQUERY
   EXPAND:TRUE
   QUERY:SELECT * FROM VEVENT
   WHERE RECURRENCE-ID >= '20000801T000000Z'
   AND RECURRENCE-ID <= '20000831T235959Z'
   AND STATE() = 'BOOKED'
   END:VQUERY

6.1.1.16 Query for all Unprocessed Entries

   The following example selects the entire contents of all non-booked
   "VTODO" and "VEVENT" components in the "UNPROCESSED" state. The
   default for the "EXPAND" property is FALSE, so the recurrence rules
   will not be expanded.


   BEGIN:VQUERY
   QUERYID:Fetch VEVENT and VTODO iTIP components
   QUERY:SELECT * FROM VEVENT WHERE STATE() = 'UNPROCESSED'
   QUERY:SELECT * FROM VTODO WHERE STATE() = 'UNPROCESSED'
   END:VQUERY


   The following example fetches all "VEVENT" and "VTODO" components in
   the "BOOKED" state.


   BEGIN:VQUERY
   QUERYID:Fetch All Booked VEVENT and VTODO components
   QUERY:SELECT * FROM VEVENT WHERE STATE() = 'BOOKED'
   QUERY:SELECT * FROM VTODO WHERE STATE() = 'BOOKED'
   END:VQUERY


   The following fetches the "UID" property for all "VEVENT" and "VTODO"
   components that have been marked for delete.


   BEGIN:VQUERY
   QUERYID:Fetch UIDs of marked for delete VEVENTs and VTODOs
   QUERY:SELECT UID FROM VEVENT WHERE STATE() = 'DELETE'
   QUERY:SELECT UID FROM VTODO WHERE STATE() = 'DELETE'
   END:VQUERY



6.1.1.17 Query with Subset of Properties by Date/Time

   In this example only the named properties will be selected and all
   booked and non-booked components will be selected that have a
   "DTSTART" value from February 1st to February 10th 2000 (in UTC).


   BEGIN:VQUERY
   QUERY:SELECT UID,DTSTART,DESCRIPTION,SUMMARY FROM VEVENT
   WHERE DTSTART >= '20000201T000000Z'

   AND DTSTART <= '20000210T235959Z'
   END:VQUERY



6.1.1.18 Query with Components and Alarms In A Range

   This example fetches all booked "VEVENT" components with an alarm
   that triggers within the specified time range. In this case only the
   "UID", "SUMMARY", and "DESCRIPTION" properties will be selected for
   all booked "VEVENTS" components that have an alarm between the two
   date-times supplied.


   BEGIN:VQUERY
   EXPAND:TRUE
   QUERY:SELECT UID,SUMMARY,DESCRIPTION FROM VEVENT
   WHERE VALARM.TRIGGER >= '20000101T030405Z'
   AND VALARM.TRIGGER <= '20001231T235959Z'
   AND STATE() = 'BOOKED'
   END:VQUERY



6.1.2 UPN Value Type

   Value Name: UPN

   Purpose: This value type is used to identify values that contain user
   principal name of CU or group of CU.

   Formal Definition: The value type is defined by the following
   notation:


   upn        = "@"
        / [ dot-atom-text ] "@" dot-atom-text

          ; dot-atom-text is defined in RFC 2822



   Description: This data type is an identifier that denotes a CU or a
   group of CU. A UPN is a RFC 2822 compliant email address, with
   exceptions listed below, and in most cases it is deliverable to the
   CU. In some cases it is identical to the CU's well known email
   address.  A CU's UPN MUST never be an e-mail address that is
   deliverable to a different person as there is no requirement that a

Internet-Draft       Calendar Access Protocol (CAP)            July 2003


   person's UPN MUST BE their e-mail address. A UPN is formatted as a
   user name followed by "@" followed by a Realm in the form of a valid,
   and unique, DNS domain name. The user name MUST BE unique within the
   Realm. In  it's simplest form it looks like "user@example.com".

   In certain cases a UPN will not be RFC 2822 compliant. When anonymous
   authentication is used, or anonymous authorization is being defined,
   the special UPN "@" will be used. When authentication MUST BE used,
   but unique identity MUST BE obscured, a UPN of the form
   @DNS-domain-name may be used. For example, "@example.com".

   Example:

   The following is a UPN for a CU:


   jdoe@example.com


   The following is a example of a UPN that could be for a group of CU:


   staff@example.com


   The following is a UPN for an anonymous CU belonging to a specific
   realm or when used as a UPN-FILTER it specifies that it applies to
   all UPNs in a specific realm:


   @example.com


   The following is a UPN for an anonymous CU:

   have local control over their own CUA and when or how alarms are
   triggered.

   A CUA may add the "ENABLE" parameter to any "TRIGGER" property before
   booking the component. If the "ENABLE" parameter is set to "FALSE",
   then the alarm will be ignored by the CUA. If set to "TRUE", or if
   the "ENABLE" property is not in the "TRIGGER" property, the alarm is
   enabled. This parameter may not be known by pre-CAP implementations
   and should not be an issue as it conforms to an 'ianaparam' as
   defined in [iCAL].

   Formal Definition: The property is defined by the following notation:

7.5 LOCAL Parameter

   Parameter Name: LOCAL

   Purpose: Indicates if the named component should be exported to any
   non-organizer calendar.

   Value Type: BOOLEAN

   Conformance: This parameter can be specified in the "SEQUENCE"
   properties in a "VALARM" component.

   Description: When a non owner sends an [iTIP] "REQUEST" to a calendar
   that object might contain a "VALARM" component. The owner may wish to
   have local control over their own CUA and when or how alarms are
   triggered.

   A CUA may add the "LOCAL" parameter to the "SEQUENCE" property before
   booking the component. If the "LOCAL" parameter is set to "FALSE",
   then the alarm MUST NOT be forwarded to any other calender. If set to
   "TRUE", or of the "LOCAL" property is not in the "SEQUENCE" property,
   the alarm is global.

8. New Properties

8.1 ALLOW-CONFLICT Property

   Property Name: ALLOW-CONFLICT

   Purpose: This property indicates whether or not the calendar and CS
   supports component conflicts. That is, whether or not any of the
   components in the calendar can overlap.

   Value Type: BOOLEAN

   Property Parameters: Non-standard property parameters can be
   specified on this property.

   Conformance: This property can be specified in "VAGENDA" and
   "VCALSTORE" component.

   Description: This property is used to indicate whether components may
   conflict. That is, if their expanded instances may share the same
   time or overlap the same time periods. If it has a value of TRUE,
   then conflicts are allowed. If FALSE, the no two components may

   component.  The "NAME" property specifies a localizable display name.

   Example: In the following example, the UPN "foo@example.com" is given
   search access to the "DTSTART" and "DTEND" VEVENT properties.  No
   other access is specified:


   BEGIN:VCAR
   CARID:View Start and End Times
   NAME:View Start and End Times
   BEGIN:VRIGHT
   GRANT:foo@example.com
   PERMISSION:SEARCH
   SCOPE:SELECT DTSTART,DTEND FROM VEVENT
   END:VRIGHT
   END:VCAR


   In this example, all UPNs are given search access to "DTSTART" and
   "DTEND" properties of VEVENT components. "All CUs and UGs" are
   specified by the UPN value "*".  Note that this enumerated UPN value
   is not in quotes:


   BEGIN:VCAR
   CARID:ViewStartEnd2
   NAME:View Start and End Times 2
   BEGIN:VRIGHT
   GRANT:*
   PERMISSION:SEARCH
   SCOPE:SELECT DTSTART,DTEND FROM VEVENT
   END:VRIGHT

   END:VCAR


   In these examples, full calendar access rights are given to the
   CAL-OWNERS(), and a hypothetical administrator is given access rights
   to specify calendar access rights.  If no other rights are specified,
   only these two UPNs can specify calendar access rights:


   BEGIN:VCAR
   CARID:some-id-3
   NAME:Only OWNER or ADMIN Settable VCARs
   BEGIN:VRIGHT
   GRANT:CAL-OWNERS()
   PERMISSION:*
   SCOPE:SELECT * FROM VAGENDA
   END:VRIGHT
   BEGIN:VRIGHT
   GRANT:cal-admin@example.com
   PERMISSION:*
   SCOPE:SELECT * FROM VCAR
   RESTRICTION:SELECT * FROM VCAR
   END:VRIGHT
   END:VCAR


   In this example, rights to write, search, modify or delete calendar
   access rights are denied to all UPNs.  This example would disable
   providing different access rights to the calendar store or calendar.
   This calendar access right should be specified with great care, as it
   removes the ability to change calendar access; even for the owner or
   administrator. It could be used by small devices that do not support
   the changing of any VCAR:


   BEGIN:VCAR
   CARID:VeryRestrictiveVCAR-2
   NAME:No CAR At All
   BEGIN:VRIGHT
   DENY:*
   PERMISSION:*
   SCOPE:SELECT * FROM VCAR
   END:VRIGHT
   END:VCAR

9.4 VRIGHT Component

   Component Name: "VRIGHT"

   Purpose: Provide a grouping of properties that describe an access
   right (granted or denied).

   Formal Definition: A "VRIGHT" component is defined by the following
   notation:


   rightc    = "BEGIN" ":" "VRIGHT" CRLF
               rightprop
               "END" ":" "VRIGHT" CRLF

   rightprop = 2*(

             ; either 'grant' or 'deny' MUST
             ; occur at least once
             ; and MAY occur more than once

              grant / deny /

             ; 'permission' MUST occur at least once
             ; and MAY occur more than once

              permission /

             ; the following are optional,
             ; and MAY occur more than once

              scope / restriction / other-props

          )


   Description: A "VRIGHT" component is a grouping of calendar access
   right properties.

   The "GRANT" property specifies the UPN that is being granted access.
   The "DENY" property specifies the UPN is being denied access. The
   "PERMISSION" property specifies the actual permission being set. The
   "SCOPE" property identifies the calendar store properties, calendar
   properties, components, or properties to which the access right
   applies.  The "RESTRICTION" property specifies restriction on the
   value that may take calendar store properties, calendar properties,
   calendar components, and properties after a "CREATE" or "MODIFY"
   command. Values MUST match all the instances of the "RESTRICTION"

   property to be valid.

9.5 VREPLY Component

   Component Name: "VREPLY"

   Purpose: Provide a grouping of arbitrary properties and components
   that are the data set result from an issued command.

   Formal Definition: A "VREPLY" component is defined by the following
   notation:


   replyc           =  "BEGIN" ":" "VREPLY" CRLF
                       any-prop-or-comp
                       "END" ":" "VREPLY" CRLF

   any-prop-or-comp = ; Zero or more iana or experimental
                      ; properties and components, in any order.


   Description: Provide a grouping of arbitrary properties and
   components that are the data set result from an issued command.

   A query can return a predictable set of arbitrary properties and
   components. This component is used by query and other commands to
   return data that does not fit into any other component. It may
   contain any valid property or component, even if they are not
   registered.

9.6 VQUERY Component

   Component Name: VQUERY

   Purpose: A component to specify what is to be fetched from a CS.

   Formal Definition: A "VQUERY" component is defined by the following
   notation:


   queryc    =  "BEGIN" ":" "VQUERY" CRLF
                queryprop
                "END" ":" "VCAR" CRLF

             / name / other-props

             ; the following MUST occur at least once.
             ;
             / query

           )


   Description: A "VQUERY" contains properties that specify which
   properties and components the CS is requested to return during a
   SEARCH command.

   The "QUERYID" property specifies the local identifier for a stored
   "VQUERY" component. The "NAME" property specifies a localizable
   display name of a stored "VQUERY" component. Normally "NAME" and
   "QUERYID" properties are used when looking for a correct stored
   "VQUERY" component, or when storing a "VQUERY" component.

   For a search, if the "TARGET" property is supplied in a "VQUERY"
   component, then the CS is to search for the query in the CALID
   supplied by the "TARGET" property value.

   For a create the "TARGET" property MUST NOT be supplied as the
   destination container is already supplied in the "TARGET" property of
   the "VCALENDAR" component.

   For examples, see Section 6.1.1.

10. Commands and Responses

   CAP commands and responses are described in this section.

10.1 CAP Commands (CMD)

   All commands are send using the CMD property.

   Property Name: CMD

   Purpose: The property defines the command to be sent.

   Value Type: TEXT

   Property Parameters: Non-standard, id, localize, latency, action or
   options.

   Conformance: This property is the method used to specify the commands
   to a CS and can exist in any object sent to the CS.

   Description: All of the command to the CS are supplied in this
   property. The "OPTIONS" parameter is overloaded and its meaning is
   dependent on the CMD value supplied.

   Formal Definition: The property is defined by the following notation:


   cmd              = "CMD" (
                    / abort-cmd
                    / continue-cmd
                    / create-cmd
                    / delete-cmd
                    / generate-uid-cmd
                    / get-capability-cmd
                    / identify-cmd
                    / modify-cmd
                    / move-cmd
                    / reply-cmd
                    / search-cmd
                    / set-locale-cmd
                    / iana-cmd

                     ) CRLF

   option-value     = paramtext ; As defined in [iCAL]


   Calendaring commands allow a CUA to directly manipulate a calendar.

   Calendar access rights can be granted or denied for any commands.

10.1.1 Bounded Latency

   A CAP command can have an associated maximum latency time by
   specifying the "LATENCY" parameter.  If the command is unable to be
   completed in the specified amount of time (as specified by the
   "LATENCY" parameter value), then a "TIMEOUT" command MUST BE sent on
   the same channel to which there MUST BE a an "ABORT" or a "CONTINUE"
   command reply. If the CUA initiated the original command, then the CS
   would issue the "TIMEOUT" command and the CUA would then have to
   issue an "ABORT" or "CONTINUE" command. If the CS initiated the
   original command then the CUA would have to issue the "TIMEOUT" and
   the CS would send the "ABORT" or "CONTINUE".

   Upon receiving an "ABORT" command, the command must then be
   terminated. Only the "ABORT", "TIMEOUT", "REPLY, and "CONTINUE"
   commands can not be aborted. The "ABORT", "TIMEOUT", and "REPLY"
   commands MUST NOT have latency set.

   Upon receiving a "CONTINUE" command the work continues as if it had
   not been delayed or stopped. Note that a new latency time MAY BE
   included in a "CONTINUE" command indicating to continue the original
   command until the "LATENCY" parameter value expires or the results of
   the original command can be returned.

   Both the "LATENCY" parameter and the "ACTION" parameter MUST BE
   supplied to any "CMD" property, or nether can be added to the "CMD"
   property. The "LATENCY" parameter MUST BE set to the maximum latency
   time in seconds.  The "ACTION" parameter accepts the following
   values: "ASK" and "ABORT" parameters.

   If the maximum latency time is exceeded and the "ACTION" parameter is
   set to the "ASK" value, then "TIMEOUT" command MUST BE sent.
   Otherwise if the "ACTION" parameter is set to the "ABORT" value then
   the command MUST BE terminated and return a REQUEST-STATUS code of
   2.0.3 for the original command.

   If a CS can both start sending the reply to a command and guarantee
   that all of the results can be sent from a command (short of
   something like network or power failure) prior to the "LATENCY"
   timeout value then the "LATENCY" time has not expired.

   Example:

   In this example the initiator asks for the listeners capabilities.

10.1.2 ABORT Command

   CMD: ABORT

   Purpose: The "ABORT" command is sent to request that the named or
   only in process command be aborted. Latency MUST not be supplied with
   the "ABORT" command.

   Formal Definition: An "ABORT" command is defined by the following
   notation:


    abort-cmd   = abortparam ":" "ABORT"

   abortparam   = *(

             ; the following are optional,
             ; but MUST NOT occur more than once

                calprops
                abort-vreply
               "END" ":" "VCALENDAR" CRLF

   abort-vreply  = "BEGIN" ":" "VREPLY" CRLF
                 request-status
                 other-props
                "END" ":" "VREPLY" CRLF



10.1.3 CONTINUE Command

   CMD: CONTINUE

   Purpose: The "CONTINUE" command is only sent after a "TIMEOUT"
   command has been received to inform the other end of the session to
   resume working on a command.

   Formal Definition: A "CONTINUE" command is defined by the following
   notation:


   continue-cmd   = continueparam ":" "CONTINUE"

   continueparam   = *(

                   ; the following are optional,
                   ; but MUST NOT occur more than once

10.1.4 CREATE Command

   CMD: CREATE

   Purpose:  The "CREATE" command is used to create one or more
   iCalendar objects in the store in the "BOOKED" or "UNPROCESSED"
   state.

   A CUA MAY send a "CREATE" command to a CS. The "CREATE" command MUST
   BE implemented by all CSs.

   The CS MUST NOT send a "CREATE" command to any CUA.

   Formal Definition: A "CREATE" command is defined by the following
   notation:


   create-cmd     = createparam ":" "CREATE"

   createparam    = *(

                  ; the following are optional,
                  ; but MUST NOT occur more than once

   For a "CREATE" command the "TARGET" property specifies the containers
   where the components will be created.

   If the iCalendar object being created does not have a "METHOD"
   property, then is not an [iTIP] object, then its state will be
   "BOOKED". Use the "DELETE" command to set the state of an object to
   the "DELETED" state (tagged for deletion). A CUA can not use the
   "CREATE" command to create an object in the "DELETED" state.

   If the intention is to book an [iTIP] object then the "METHOD"
   property MUST NOT BE supplied. Otherwise any [iTIP] object MUST have
   a valid [iTIP] "METHOD" property value and it is a scheduling request
   being deposited into the CS and will have its state set to
   "UNPROCESSED" state.

   ABNF for a "CREATE" object is:


   create-object = "BEGIN" ":" "VCALENDAR" CRLF

   To create a new component in multiple containers simply name all of
   the containers in the "TARGET" in the create command. Here a new
   "VEVENT" component is created in two TARGET components. In this
   example, the "VEVENT" component is one new [iTIP] "REQUEST" to be
   stored in two calendars. The results would be iCalendar objects that
   conform to the [iTIP] replies as defined in [iTIP].

   This example shows two [iTIP] "VEVENT" components being created in
   each of the two supplied "TARGET" properties and as it contains the
   "METHOD" property they will be stored in the "UNPROCESSED" state:


   C: Content-Type: text/calendar

   The CS sends the "VREPLY" commands in separate MIME objects, one per
   supplied "TARGET" property value.

10.1.5 DELETE Command

   CMD: DELETE

   Purpose: The "DELETE" command physically removes the QUERY result
   from the store or marks it for deletion.

   A CUA MAY send a "DELETE" command to a CS. The "DELETE" command MUST
   BE implemented by all CSs.




Royer, et al.           Expires January 25, 2004              [Page 106]


Internet-Draft       Calendar Access Protocol (CAP)            July 2003


   The CS MUST NOT send a "DELETE" command to any CUA.

   Formal Definition: A "DELETE" command is defined by the following
   notation:


   delete-cmd   = deleteparam ":" "DELETE"

   deleteparam  = *(

                ; the following are optional,
                ; but MUST NOT occur more than once
                ;
                 id-param
                / localize-param
                / latency-param
                / option-param "MARK"

                ; The following MUST occur exactly once and only
                ; when the latency-param has been supplied and
                ; MUST NOT be supplied if the latency-param is
                ; not supplied.
                ;
                / action-param

                ; the following is optional,
                ; and MAY occur more than once
                ;
                / other-params
               )


   The "DELETE" command is used to delete calendars or components. The
   included "VQUERY" component(s) specifies the container(s) to delete.

   If a component is to be marked for delete and not physically removed,
   then include the "OPTIONS" parameter with its value set to the "MARK"
   value in order to alter its state to "DELETED".

   When components are deleted, only the top most component
   "REQUEST-STATUS" properties are returned. No "REQUEST-STATUS"
   properties are returned for components inside of the selected
   components. There MUST BE one "VREPLY" component returned for each
   object that is deleted or marked for delete. Note that if no "VREPLY"
   components are returned then nothing matched and nothing was deleted.


   Restriction Table for the "REPLY" command for any "DELETE" command.

   deleted-id    = ( calid / carid / uid / uid recurid
                  / queryid / tzid / sequence / x-id )


   Example to delete a "VEVENT" component with "UID" value of
   'abcd12345' from the calendar "relcald-22" from the current CS:


   C: Content-Type: text/calendar
   C:
   C: BEGIN:VCALENDAR

   C: CMD;ID:"random but unique per CUA":DELETE
   C: BEGIN:VQUERY

   C: END:VQUERY

   One or more iCalendar objects will be returned that contain a
   "REQUEST-STATUS" properties for the deleted components. There could
   have been more than one component deleted, Any booked and any number
   of unprocessed [iTIP] scheduling components that matched the QUERY
   value in the above example. Each unique "METHOD" property value that
   was deleted from the store MUST BE in a separate iCalendar object.
   This is because only one "METHOD" property is allowed in a single
   "VCALENDAR" BEGIN/END block.

10.2 GENERATE-UID Command

   CMD: GENERATE-UID

   Purpose: The "GENERATE-UID" command returns one or more unique

   The "GENERATE-UID" command MAY BE sent to any CS. The "GENERATE-UID"
   command MUST BE implemented by all CSs.

   The "GENERATE-UID" command MUST NOT be sent to a CUA.

   Formal Definition: A "GENERATE-UID" command is defined by the
   following notation:


   generate-uid-cmd   = genuidparam ":" "GENERATE-UID"

   genuidparam     = *(

                   ; The following are optional,

   The values returned may differ depending on current user identify and
   the security level of the connection.

   Client implementations SHOULD NOT require any capability element
   beyond those defined in this specification or future RFC publications
   , and MAY ignore any nonstandard, experimental capability elements.
   The "GET-CAPABILITY" reply may return  different results depending on
   the UPN and if the UPN is authenticated.

   When sending a reply to a "GET-CAPABILITY" command, all of these MUST
   BE supplied. The following properties are returned in response to a

            A "REQUEST-STATUS" property wrapped in a "VREPLY" component with only one of the following
            request-status codes:

                  2.0 Successful.

                  6.4 Identity not permitted. VCAR restriction.


   The CS determines through an internal mechanism if the credentials
   supplied at authentication permit the operation as the selected
   identity. If they do, the session assumes the new identity, otherwise
   a security error is returned.

10.5 MODIFY Command

   CMD: MODIFY

   Purpose: The "MODIFY" command is used to modify existing components.

   A CUA MAY send a "MODIFY" command to a CS. The "MODIFY" command MUST
   BE implemented by all CSs.

   The CS MUST NOT send a "MODIFY" command to any CUA.

   Formal Definition: A "MODIFY" command is defined by the following
   notation:


           modify-cmd   = modifyparam ":" "MODIFY"

          modifyparam   = *(

                        ; the following are optional,
                        ; but MUST NOT occur more than once

                          id-param
                        / localize-param
                        / latency-param

                        ; the following MUST occur exactly once and only
                        ; when the latency-param has been supplied and
                        ; MUST NOT be supplied if the latency-param is
                        ; not supplied.

                        / action-param

                        ; the following is optional,
                        ; and MAY occur more than once

                        / other-params

                        )


   The "MODIFY" command is used to modify existing components.  The
   TARGET property specifies the calendars where the components exist
   that are going to be modified.

   The format of the request is two components inside of "VCALENDAR"
   component:




Royer, et al.           Expires January 25, 2004              [Page 116]


Internet-Draft       Calendar Access Protocol (CAP)            July 2003


           BEGIN:VCALENDAR
           ...
           BEGIN:VQUERY
           ...
           END:VQUERY
           BEGIN:XXX
           ...old-values...
           END:XXX
           BEGIN:XXX
           ...new-values...
           END:XXX
           END:CALENDAR


   The "VQUERY" component selects the components that are to be
   modified.

   Where "XXX" above is a named component type (VEVENT, VTODO, ...).
   Both the old and new components MUST BE of the same type.

   The old-values is a component and the contents of that component are
   going to change and may contain information that helps uniquely
   identify the original component (SEQUENCE in the example below). If
   the CS can not find a component that matches the QUERY and does not
   have at least all of the OLD-VALUES, then a 6.1 error is returned.

   The new-values is a component of the same type as old-values and
   new-values contains the new data for each selected component. Any
   data that is in old-values and not in new-values is deleted from the
   selected component. Any values in new-values that was not in
   old-values is added to the component.

   In this example the "VEVENT" component with a "UID" property value of
   'unique-58' has; the "LOCATION" property and "LAST-MODIFIED" property
   changed, the "VALARM" component with the "SEQUENCE" property with a
   value of "3" has its "TRIGGER" property disabled, the "X-LOCAL"
   property is removed from the "VEVENT" component, and a "COMMENT"
   property is added.

   Because "SEQUENCE" property is used to locate the "VALARM" component
   in this example,  both the old-values and the new-values contain the
   "SEQUENCE" property with a value of "3" and if the "SEQUENCE"
   property were to be left out of new-values, it would have been
   deleted.


     Example:

     C: SEQUENCE:3
     C: TRIGGER;ENABLE=FALSE:RELATED=END:PT5M
     C: END:VALARM
     C: END:VEVENT


   The "X-LOCAL" property was not supplied in the new-values, so it was
   deleted. The "LOCATION" property value was altered, as was the
   "LAST-MODIFIED" value. The "VALARM" component with a "SEQUENCE"
   property value of "3" had its "TRIGGER" property disabled, and the
   "SEQUENCE" property value did not change so it was not effected. The
   "COMMENT" property was added.

   When it comes to inline ATTACHMENTs, the CUA only needs to uniquely
   identify the contents of the ATTACHMENT value in the old-values in
   order to delete them. When the CS compares the attachment data it is
   compared in its binary form. The ATTACHMENT value supplied by the CUA
   MUST BE valid encoded information.

   For example, to delete the same huge inline attachment from every
   VEVENT in 'my-cal' that has an "ATTACH" property value with the
   old-values:

           CMD:MODIFY
           BEGIN:VQUERY

           BEGIN:VEVENT
           END:VEVENT
           END:VCALENDAR


   Above the new-values is empty, so everything in the old-values is
   deleted.

   Furthermore, the following additional restrictions apply:

   1.  One can not change the "UID" property of a component.

   2.  If a contained component is changed inside of a selected
       component, and that contained component has multiple instances,
       then old-values MUST contain information that uniquely identifies
       the instance or instances that are changing. It is valid to
       change more than one. As all contained components that match
       old-values will be modified. In the first modify example above,
       if "SEQUENCE" properties were to be deleted from both the
       old-values and new-values, then all "TRIGGER" properties that
       matched the old-values in all "VALARM" components in the selected
       "VEVENT" components would be disabled.

   3.  The result of the modify MUST BE a valid iCalendar object.

   Response:

   A "VCALENDAR" component is returns with one ore more "REQUEST-STATUS"
   property values.

   If any error occurred:

      No component will be changed at all. That is, it will appear just
      as it was prior to the modify and the CAP server SHOULD return a

      "REQUEST-STATUS" property for each error that occurred.

      There MUST BE at least one error reported.

   If multiple components are selected, then what uniquely identified
   the component MUST BE returned (UID, QUERYID, ...) if the component
   contains a unique identifier. If not, sufficient information to
   uniquely identify the modified components MUST BE returned in the
   reply.

10.6 MOVE Command

   Purpose: The "MOVE" command is used to move components within the CS.

   A CUA MAY send a "MOVE" command to a CS. The "MOVE" command MUST BE
   implemented by all CSs.

   The CS MUST NOT send a "MOVE" command to any CUA.

   Formal Definition: A "MOVE" command is defined by the following
   notation:

      Response:
              The REQUEST-STATUS in a VCALENDAR object.


   The content of each "result" is subject to the result restriction
   table defined below.

   The access control on the "VAGENDA" component after it has been moved
   to its new location in the calstore MUST BE at least as secure as it
   was prior to the move. If the CS is not able to ensure the same level
   of security, a permission denied "REQUEST-STATUS" property value MUST
   BE returned and the "MOVE" command not performed.

   The "TARGET" property value specifies the new location, and the
   "VQUERY" component specifies the old location.

Internet-Draft       Calendar Access Protocol (CAP)            July 2003


   Purpose: The "REPLY" value to the "CMD" property is used to return
   the results of all other commands to the CUA.

   A CUA MUST send a "REPLY" command to a CS for any command a CS MAY
   send to the CUA. The "REPLY" command MUST BE implemented by all CUAs
   that support getting the "GET-CAPABILITY" command.

   A CS MUST send a "REPLY" command to a CUA for any command a CUA MAY
   send to the CS.  The "REPLY" command MUST BE implemented by all CSs.

   Formal Definition: A "REPLY" command is defined by the following
   notation:

10.8 SEARCH Command

   CMD: SEARCH

   Purpose: The "SEARCH" command is used to return selected components
   to the CUA.

   A CUA MAY send a "SEARCH" command to a CS. The "SEARCH" command MUST
   BE implemented by all CSs.

   The CS MUST NOT send a "SEARCH" command to any CUA.

   Formal Definition: A "SEARCH" command is defined by the following

   Response:

   The data in each result set contains one or more iCalendar components
   composed of all the selected results enclosed in a single "VREPLY"
   component per "QUERY".

   Only "REQUEST-STATUS" property and the properties mentioned in the
   "SELECT" clause of the QUERY are included in the components. Each
   "VCALENDAR" component is tagged with the "TARGET" property.

   Searching for objects

   In the example below objects on March 10,1999 between 080000Z and
   190000Z are read. In this case only 4 properties for each objects are
   returned. Two calendars are specified. Only booked (vs scheduled)
   entries are to be returned (this example only selected VEVENT
   objects):

   The return values are subject to VCAR filtering. That is, if the
   request contains properties to which the UPN does not have access,
   those properties will not appear in the return values. If the UPN has
   access to at least one property of the component, but has been denied
   access to all properties called out in the request, the response will
   contain a single "REQUEST-STATUS" property indicating the error.

   Here the request was successful, however one of the "VEVENT"
   components contents were not accessible (4.1).

   If the UPN has no access to any components at all, the response will
   simply be an empty data set.  The response looks the same if there
   the particular components did not exist.

   If there are multiple targets, each iCalendar reply is contained
   within its own iCalendar object.

   Stored VQUERY can be used by specifying the property QUERYID instead
   of QUERY.

10.8.1 Searching for VFREEBUSY

   For CSs that set the "CAPABILITY" "RECUR-EXPAND" property to "TRUE"
   and have the "VFREEBUSY" component in the "COMPONENTS" value in the
   "CAPABILITY" reply, the CS MUST dynamically create the results of a
   search for the "VFREEBUSY" component at search time when searching
   for STATE() = 'BOOKED' items. If searching for STATE() =
   'UNPROCESSED' items then the [iTIP] object are returned. For these
   CSs it is the the CS is responsibility and not the CUAs
   responsibility to provide the correct "VFREEBUSY" information for a
   calendar. If a CUA  performs a "CREATE" "VFREEBUSY" the CS MUST
   return success and not store the "VFREEBUSY" component.

   For CSs that set the "CAPABILITY" "RECUR-EXPAND" property to "FALSE"
   and have the "VFREEBUSY" component in the "COMPONENTS" value in the
   "CAPABILITY" reply, a CUA MAY store the "VFREEBUSY" information on
   the CS. These CSs then MUST return a "VFREEBUSY" component calculated
   from the stored components. If no "VFREEBUSY" information is
   available for the "TARGET" calendar, then a "VFREEBUSY" with no
   blocked out time will be returned with a success code. A CUA sets the
   "VFREEBUSY" time on a those calendars by creating a "VFREEBUSY"

   component without a "METHOD" creating a "BOOKED" entry.

   If a CS does not set the "VFREEBUSY" value in the "COMPONENTS"
   "CAPABILITY" value, the CS does not support the "VFREEBUSY" component
   and all creation and searching for a "VFREEBUSY" component MUST fail.
   Examples of calendars that may be in this category are public event
   calendars that will never require scheduling with other UPNs.

10.9 SET-LOCALE Command

   CMD: SET-LOCALE

   Purpose: The "SET-LOCALE" command is used to select the locale that
   will be used in error codes used in the "REQUEST-STATUS" property.

   A CUA MAY send a "SET-LOCALE" command to a CS. The SET-LOCALE command
   MUST BE implemented by all CSs.

   The CS MUST NOT send a "SET-LOCALE" command to any CUA.

   Formal Definition: A "SET-LOCALE" command is defined by the following
   notation:


           setlocale-cmd   = setlocaleparam ":" "SET-LOCALE"

          setlocaleparam   = *(

                           ; the following are optional,
                           ; but MUST NOT occur more than once

                             id-param
                           / localize-param
                           / latency-param
                           / setlocale-option

                           ; the following MUST occur exactly once and only
                           ; when the latency-param has been supplied and
                           ; MUST NOT be supplied if the latency-param is
                           ; not supplied.

                           / action-param

                           ; the following is optional,
                           ; and MAY occur more than once

                           / other-params

         setlocal-option   = option-param newlocale

               newlocale   = ; Any locale supplied in the initial [BEEP]
                             ; "greeting" "localize" parameter and

         CMD:OPTIONS=es_MX.ISO8859-1:SET-LOCALE


   Restriction Table for the "REPLY" command of any "SET-LOCALE"
   command.



           setlocale-reply  = "BEGIN" ":" "VCALENDAR" CRLF

                              request-status
                              "END" ":" "VREPLY" CRLF



10.10 TIMEOUT Command

   CMD: TIMEOUT

   Purpose: The "TIMEOUT" command is only sent after a command has been
   sent with a latency value set. When received it means the command
   could not be completed in the time allowed.

   Formal Definition: A "TIMEOUT" command is defined by the following
   notation:


         timeout-cmd   = continueparam ":" "TIMEOUT"

        timeoutparam   = *(

                        ; the following are optional,
                        ; but MUST NOT occur more than once

                          id-param

                        / other-params

                        )



10.11 Response Codes

   Numeric response codes are returned using the "REQUEST-STATUS"
   property.

   The format of these codes is described in [iCAL], and extend in
   [iTIP] and [iMIP]. The following describes new codes added to this
   set and how existing codes apply to CAP.

   At the application layer response codes are returned as the value of
   a "REQUEST-STATUS" property. The value type of this property is
   modified from that defined in [iCAL], in order to make the
   accompanying "REQUEST-STATUS" property text optional.


       Code              Description
       --------------------------------------------------------------
       2.0               Success. The parameters vary with the
                         operation and are specified.

       2.0.3             In response to the client issuing an
                         "abort" reply, this reply code indicates
                         that any command currently underway was
                         successfully aborted.

       3.1.4             Capability not supported.

       4.1               Calendar store access denied.

       6.1               Container not found.

       6.2               Attempt to create or modify an object
                         such that it would overlap another object
                         in either of the following two circumstances:

                         property set to OPAQUE-NOCONFLICT or
                         TRANSPARENT-NOCONFLICT.

                         (b) The calendar's ALLOW-CONFLICT
                         property is set to FALSE.

       6.3               Bad args.

       6.4               Permission denied - VCAR restriction.
                         A VCAR exists and the CS will not perform
                         the operation.

       7.0               A timeout has occurred. The server was
                         unable to complete the operation in the
                         requested time.

       8.0               A failure has occurred in the CS
                         that prevents the operation from
                         succeeding.

       8.1               A query was performed and the query is
                         too complex for the CS. The operation
                         was not performed.

       8.2               Used to signal that an iCalendar object has
                         exceeded the server's size limit

       8.3               A DATETIME value was too far in the future
                         represented on this Calendar.

       8.4               A DATETIME value was too far in the past
                         to be represented on this Calendar.

       8.5               An attempt was made to create a new
                         object but the unique UID specified is
                         already in use.

       9.0               An unrecognized command was received.
                         Or an unsupported command was received.


       10.4              The operation has not been performed
                         because it would cause the resources
                         (memory, disk, CPU, etc) to exceed the
                         allocated quota.

11. Object Registration

   This section provides the process for registration of new or modified
   properties, parameters, commands, or other modifications, additions,
   or deletions to objects.

11.1 Registration of New and Modified Entities

   New objects are registered by the publication of an IETF Request for
   Comment (RFC). Changes to a objects are registered by the publication
   of a revision to the RFC in a new RFC.

11.2 Post the item definition

   The object description MUST BE posted to the new object discussion
   list: ietf-calendar@imc.org.

11.3 Allow a comment period

   Discussion on a new object MUST BE allowed to take place on the list
   for a minimum of two weeks. Consensus MUST BE reached on the object
   before proceeding to the next step.

11.4 Release a new RFC

   The new object will be submitted for publication as any other
   internet draft requesting RFC status.

12. BEEP and CAP

12.1 BEEP Profile Registration

   TBD

12.2 BEEP Exchange Styles

   [BEEP] defines three styles of message exchange:

   MSG/ANS,ANS,...,NUL -  For one to many exchanges.

   MSG/RPY -  For one to one exchanges.

   MSG/ERR -  For requests the cannot be processed due to an error.

   A CAP request, targeted at more than one containers, MAY use a one-
   to-many exchange, with a distinct answer associated with each target.
   CAP request targeted at a single container MAY use a one-to-one
   exchange or a one-to-many exchange.  "MSG/ERR" MAY only be used when
   an error condition prevents the execution of the request on all the
   targeted calendars.

13. IANA Considerations

   This memo defines IANA registered extensions to the attributes
   defined by iCalendar, as defined in [iCAL], and [iTIP].

   IANA registration proposals for iCalendar and [iTIP] are to be mailed
   to the registration agent for the "text/calendar" [MIME]
   content-type, <MAILTO: ietf-calendar@imc.org> using the format
   defined in section 7 of [iCAL].

   If the IESG approves this memo for publication, then the IANA
   registers the profile specified in Section 12.1, and selects an
   IANA-specific URI, e.g., http://iana.org/beep/cap/1.0.

14. Security Considerations

   Access rights should be granted cautiously, consult Section 2.4.2 for
   a discussion of the subject. Without careful planning it is possible
   to open up access to a greater degree than desired.

   The "IDENTIFY" command should be carefully implemented as discussed
   in Section 6.1.3.

   In addition, since CAP is a profile of the [BEEP], consult [BEEP]'s
   Section 9 for a discussion of BEEP-specific security issues.

   Although service provisioning is a policy matter, at a minimum, all
   implementations must provide the following tuning profiles:

      for authentication: http://iana.org/beep/SASL/DIGEST-MD5

      for confidentiality: http://iana.org/beep/TLS (using the
      TLS_RSA_WITH_3DES_EDE_CBC_SHA cipher)

      for both: http://iana.org/beep/TLS (using the
      TLS_RSA_WITH_3DES_EDE_CBC_SHA cipher supporting client-side
      certificates)
