Internet-Draft             IODEF XML Registry                   May 2012

1.  Introduction

   IODEF extensions via class extension through AdditionalData and
   RecordItem elements, as per section 5.2 of [RFC5070], generally
   register their namespaces and schemas with the IANA XML Namespace
   registry at and
   the IANA XML Schema registry at,
   respectively [RFC3688].

   In addition to schema reviews required by IANA, these registry
   requests should be accompanied by a review by IODEF experts to ensure
   the specified AdditionalData and/or RecordItem contents are
   compatible with IODEF and with other existing IODEF extensions.  This
   document specifies that review.

2.  Expert Review of IODEF-related XML Registry Entries

   Changes to the XML Schema registry for schema names beginning with
   "urn:ietf:params:xml:schema:iodef" are subject to an additional IODEF
   Expert Review [RFC5226] for IODEF-correctness and -appropriateness.

   The IODEF expert(s) for these reviews will be designated by the IETF
   Security Area Directors.

3.  Security Considerations

   This document has no security considerations.

4.  IANA Considerations

   [IANA NOTE: The authors request that IANA list an IODEF Expert be
   designated by the IETF Security Area Directors on the XML Schema
   registry, responsible for performing an IODEF Expert Review [RFC5226]
   on schemas with names beginning with
   'urn:ietf:params:xml:schema:iodef', to be noted in the most
   appropriate way.  This should appear in the same place as other
   expert designations, and note that the review is IODEF-specific.  In
   addition, the References column of
   urn:ietf:params:xml:schema:iodef-1.0 at should be
   made to reference this document as well as RFC5070.]

   This document specifies additional expert reviews for IODEF
   extensions, on the XML Schema registry
