1. Introduction

  This document describes a personal and organizational identifier
  mapping for version 1.0 of the Extensible Provisioning Protocol (EPP).
  This mapping is specified using the Extensible Markup Language (XML)
  1.0 as described in [XML] and XML Schema notation as described in
  [XMLS-1] and [XMLS-2].

  [EPP] provides a complete description of EPP command and response
  structures.  A thorough understanding of the base protocol
  specification is necessary to understand the mapping described in this
  document.

  XML is case sensitive.  Unless stated otherwise, XML specifications
  and examples provided in this document MUST be interpreted in the
  character case presented to develop a conforming implementation.

2. Object Attributes

  An EPP contact object has attributes and associated values that can be
  viewed and modified by the sponsoring client or the server.  This
  section describes each attribute type in detail.  The formal syntax
  for the attribute values described here can be found in the "Formal
  Syntax" section of this document and in the appropriate normative
  references.

2.1 Contact and Client Identifiers

  All EPP contacts are identified by a server-unique identifier.
  Contact identifiers are character strings with a specified minimum
  length, a specified maximum length, and a specified format.  Contact
  identifiers use the "clIDType" client identifier syntax described in
  [EPP].

2.2 Status Values

  A contact object MUST always have at least one associated status
  value.  Status values can be set only by the client that sponsors a
  contact object and by the server on which the object resides.  A
  client can change the status of a contact object using the EPP
  <update> command.  Each status value MAY be accompanied by a string of
  human-readable text that describes the rationale for the status
  applied to the object.

  A client MUST NOT alter status values set by the server.  A server MAY
  alter or override status values set by a client subject to local
  server policies.  The status of an object MAY change as a result of
  either a client-initiated transform command or an action performed by
  a server operator.

  Status values that can be added or removed by a client are prefixed
  with "client".  Corresponding status values that can be added or
  removed by a server are prefixed with "server".  Status values that do
  not begin with either "client" or "server" are server-managed.

  Status Value Descriptions:

  - clientDeleteProhibited, serverDeleteProhibited

  Requests to delete the object MUST be rejected.

  - clientTransferProhibited, serverTransferProhibited

  Requests to transfer the object MUST be rejected.

Internet-Draft            EPP Contact mapping             April 24, 2003


  - clientUpdateProhibited, serverUpdateProhibited

  Requests to update the object (other than to remove this status) MUST
  be rejected.

  - linked

  The contact object has at least one active association with another
  object, such as a domain object.  Servers SHOULD provide services to
  determine existing object associations.

  - ok

  This is the normal status value for an object that has no pending
  operations or prohibitions.  This value is set and removed by the
  server as other status values are added or removed.

  - pendingCreate, pendingDelete, pendingTransfer, pendingUpdate

  A transform command has been processed for the object, but the action
  has not been completed by the server.  Server operators can delay
  action completion for a variety of reasons, such as to allow for human
  review or third-party action.  A transform command that is processed,
  but whose requested action is pending, is noted with response code
  1001.

  With one exception, transform commands MUST be rejected when a
  pendingCreate, pendingDelete, pendingTransfer, or pendingUpdate status
  is set.  The only exception is that a <transfer> command to approve,
  reject, or cancel a transfer MAY be processed while an object is in
  "pendingTransfer" status.

  When the requested action has been completed, the pendingCreate,
  pendingDelete, pendingTransfer, or pendingUpdate status value MUST be
  removed.  All clients involved in the transaction MUST be notified
  using a service message that the action has been completed and that
  the status of the object has changed.

  "ok" status MAY only be combined with "linked" status.

  "linked" status MAY be combined with any status.

  "pendingDelete" status MUST NOT be combined with either
  "clientDeleteProhibited" or "serverDeleteProhibited" status.

  "pendingTransfer" status MUST NOT be combined with either
  "clientTransferProhibited" or "serverTransferProhibited" status.

Internet-Draft            EPP Contact mapping             April 24, 2003


  "pendingUpdate" status MUST NOT be combined with either
  "clientUpdateProhibited" or "serverUpdateProhibited" status.

  The pendingCreate, pendingDelete, pendingTransfer, and pendingUpdate
  status values MUST NOT be combined with each other.

  Other status combinations not expressly prohibited MAY be used.

2.3 Individual and Organizational Names

  Individual and organizational names associated with a contact are
  represented using character strings.  These strings have a specified
  minimum length and a specified maximum length.  Individual and
  organizational names MAY be provided in both UTF-8 [RFC2279] and a
  subset of UTF-8 that can be represented in 7-bit ASCII depending on
  local needs.

2.4 Address

  Every contact has associated postal address information.  A postal
  address contains OPTIONAL street information, city information,
  OPTIONAL state/province information, an OPTIONAL postal code, and a
  country identifier.  Address information MAY be provided in both UTF-8
  and a subset of UTF-8 that can be represented in 7-bit ASCII depending
  on local needs.

2.4.1 Street, City, and State or Province

  Contact street, city, and state or province information is represented
  using character strings.  These strings have a specified minimum
  length and a specified maximum length.

2.4.2 Postal Code

  Contact postal codes are represented using character strings.  These
  strings have a specified minimum length and a specified maximum
  length.

2.4.3 Country

  Contact country identifiers are represented using two-character
  identifiers specified in [ISO3166].

2.5 Telephone Numbers

  Contact telephone number structure is derived from structures defined
  in [E164a].  Telephone numbers described in this mapping are character
  strings that MUST begin with a plus sign ("+", ASCII value 0x002B),



Hollenbeck              Expires October 24, 2003                [Page 6]


Internet-Draft            EPP Contact mapping             April 24, 2003


  followed by a country code defined in [E164b], followed by a dot (".",
  ASCII value 0x002E), followed by a sequence of digits representing the
  telephone number.  An optional "x" attribute is provided to note
  telephone extension information.

2.6 Email Addresses

  Email address syntax is defined in [RFC2822].  This mapping does not
  prescribe minimum or maximum lengths for character strings used to
  represent email addresses.

2.7 Dates and Times

  Date and time attribute values MUST be represented in Universal
  Coordinated Time (UTC) using the Gregorian calendar.  The extended
  date-time form using upper case "T" and "Z" characters defined in
  [RFC3339] MUST be used to represent date-time values as XML Schema
  does not support truncated date-time forms or lower case "T" and "Z"
  characters.

2.8 Authorization Information

  Authorization information is associated with contact objects to
  facilitate transfer operations.  Authorization information is assigned
  when a contact object is created, and it might be updated in the
  future. This specification describes password-based authorization
  information, though other mechanisms are possible.

2.9 Disclosure of Data Elements and Attributes

  The EPP core protocol requires a server operator to announce data
  collection policies to clients; see section 2.4 of [EPP].  In
  conjunction with this disclosure requirement, this mapping includes
  data elements that allow a client to identify elements that require
  exceptional server operator handling to allow or restrict disclosure
  to third parties.

  A server operator announces a default disclosure policy when
  establishing a session with a client.  When an object is created or
  updated, the client can specify contact attributes that require
  exceptional disclosure handling using an OPTIONAL <contact:disclose>
  element.  Once set, disclosure preferences can be reviewed using a
  contact information query.  A server operator MUST reject any
  transaction that requests disclosure practices that do not conform to
  the announced data collection policy with a 2308 error response code.

  If present, the <contact:disclose> element MUST contain a "flag"
  attribute.  The "flag" attribute contains an XML Schema boolean value.



Hollenbeck              Expires October 24, 2003                [Page 7]


Internet-Draft            EPP Contact mapping             April 24, 2003


  A value of "true" or "1" (decimal one) notes a client preference to
  allow disclosure of the specified elements as an exception to the
  stated data collection policy.  A value of "false" or "0" (decimal
  zero) notes a client preference to not allow disclosure of the
  specified elements as an exception to the stated data collection
  policy.

  The <contact:disclose> element MUST contain at least one of the
  following child elements:

  <contact:name type="int"> <contact:name type="loc"> <contact:org
  type="int"> <contact:org type="loc"> <contact:addr type="int">
  <contact:addr type="loc"> <contact:voice> <contact:fax>
  <contact:email>

  Example <contact:disclose> element, flag="0":

  <contact:disclose flag="0">
    <contact:email>
    <contact:voice>
  </contact:disclose>

  In this example, the contact email address and voice telephone number
  can not be disclosed.  All other elements are subject to disclosure in
  accordance with the server's data collection policy.

  Example <contact:disclose> element, flag="1":

  <contact:disclose flag="1">
    <contact:name type="int">
    <contact:org type="int">
    <contact:addr type="int">
  </contact:disclose>

  In this example, the internationalized contact name, organization, and
  address information can be disclosed.  All other elements are subject
  to disclosure in accordance with the server's data collection policy.

  Client identification features provided by the EPP <login> command and
  contact authorization information are used to determine if a client is
  authorized to perform contact information query commands.  These
  features also determine if a client is authorized to receive data that
  is otherwise marked for non-disclosure in a query response.

3. EPP Command mapping

  A detailed description of the EPP syntax and semantics can be found in
  [EPP].  The command mappings described here are specifically for use
  in provisioning and managing contact objects via EPP.

3.1 EPP Query Commands

  EPP provides three commands to retrieve contact information: <check>
  to determine if a contact object can be provisioned within a
  repository, <info> to retrieve detailed information associated with a
  contact object, and <transfer> to retrieve contact object transfer
  status information.

3.1.1 EPP <check> Command

  The EPP <check> command is used to determine if an object can be
  provisioned within a repository.  It provides a hint that allows a
  client to anticipate the success or failure of provisioning an object
  using the <create> command as object provisioning requirements are
  ultimately a matter of server policy.

  In addition to the standard EPP command elements, the <check> command
  MUST contain a <contact:check> element that identifies the contact
  namespace and the location of the contact schema.  The <contact:check>
  element contains the following child elements:

  - One or more <contact:id> elements that contain the server-unique
  identifier of the contact objects to be queried.

Internet-Draft            EPP Contact mapping             April 24, 2003



  Example <check> command:

  C:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
  C:<epp xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp-1.0"
  C:     xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
  C:     xsi:schemaLocation="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp-1.0
  C:     epp-1.0.xsd">
  C:  <command>
  C:    <check>
  C:      <contact:check
  C:       xmlns:contact="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:contact-1.0"
  C:       xsi:schemaLocation="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:contact-1.0
  C:       contact-1.0.xsd">
  C:        <contact:id>sh8013</contact:id>
  C:        <contact:id>sah8013</contact:id>
  C:        <contact:id>8013sah</contact:id>
  C:      </contact:check>
  C:    </check>
  C:    <clTRID>ABC-12345</clTRID>
  C:  </command>
  C:</epp>

  When a <check> command has been processed successfully, the EPP
  <resData> element MUST contain a child <contact:chkData> element that
  identifies the contact namespace and the location of the contact
  schema. The <contact:chkData> element contains one or more
  <contact:cd> elements that contain the following child elements:

  - A <contact:id> element that identifies the queried object.  This
  element MUST contain an "avail" attribute whose value indicates object
  availability (can it be provisioned or not) at the moment the <check>
  command was completed.  A value of "1" or "true" means that the object
  can be provisioned.  A value of "0" or "false" means that the object
  can not be provisioned.

  - An OPTIONAL <contact:reason> element that MAY be provided when an
  object can not be provisioned.  If present, this element contains
  server-specific text to help explain why the object can not be
  provisioned.  This text MUST be represented in the response language
  previously negotiated with the client; an OPTIONAL "lang" attribute
  MAY be present to identify the language if the negotiated value is
  something other than the default value of "en" (English).

  S:      <svTRID>54322-XYZ</svTRID>
  S:    </trID>
  S:  </response>
  S:</epp>

  An EPP error response MUST be returned if a <check> command can not be
  processed for any reason.

3.1.2 EPP <info> Command

  The EPP <info> command is used to retrieve information associated with
  a contact object.  In addition to the standard EPP command elements,
  the <info> command MUST contain a <contact:info> element that
  identifies the contact namespace and the location of the contact
  schema.  The <contact:info> element contains the following child
  elements:

  - A <contact:id> element that contains the server-unique identifier of
  the contact object to be queried.

  - An OPTIONAL <contact:authInfo> element that contains authorization
  information associated with the contact object.  If this element is
  not provided or if the authorization information is invalid, server
  policy determines if the command is rejected or if response
  information will be returned to the client.

  Example <info> command:

  C:<epp xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp-1.0"
  C:     xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"

  C:    </info>
  C:    <clTRID>ABC-12345</clTRID>
  C:  </command>
  C:</epp>

  When an <info> command has been processed successfully, the EPP
  <resData> element MUST contain a child <contact:infData> element that
  identifies the contact namespace and the location of the contact
  schema. The <contact:infData> element contains the following child
  elements:

  - A <contact:id> element that contains the server-unique identifier of
  the contact object.

  - A <contact:roid> element that contains the Repository Object
  IDentifier assigned to the contact object when the object was created.

  - One or more <contact:status> elements that describe the status of
  the contact object.

  - One or two <contact:postalInfo> elements that contain postal address

  information.  Two elements are provided so that address information
  can be provided in both internationalized and localized forms; a
  "type" attribute is used to identify the two forms.  If an
  internationalized form (type="int") is provided, element content MUST
  be represented in a subset of UTF-8 that can be represented in the 7-
  bit US-ASCII character set.  If a localized form (type="loc") is
  provided, element content MAY be represented in unrestricted UTF-8.
  The <contact:postalInfo> element contains the following child
  elements:

    - A <contact:name> element that contains the name of the individual
    or role represented by the contact.

    - An OPTIONAL <contact:org> element that contains the name of the
    organization with which the contact is affiliated.

    - A <contact:addr> element that contains address information
    associated with the contact.  A <contact:addr> element contains the
    following child elements:

      - One, two, or three OPTIONAL <contact:street> elements that
      contain the contact's street address.

      - A <contact:city> element that contains the contact's city.

      - An OPTIONAL <contact:sp> element that contains the contact's
      state or province.

      - An OPTIONAL <contact:pc> element that contains the contact's
      postal code.

      - A <contact:cc> element that contains the contact's country code.

  - An OPTIONAL <contact:voice> element that contains the contact's
  voice telephone number.

  - An OPTIONAL <contact:fax> element that contains the contact's
  facsimile telephone number.

  - A <contact:email> element that contains the contact's email address.

  - A <contact:clID> element that contains the identifier of the
  sponsoring client.

3.1.3 EPP <transfer> Query Command

  The EPP <transfer> command provides a query operation that allows a
  client to determine real-time status of pending and completed transfer
  requests.  In addition to the standard EPP command elements, the
  <transfer> command MUST contain an "op" attribute with value "query",
  and a <contact:transfer> element that identifies the contact namespace
  and the location of the contact schema.  The <contact:transfer>
  element MUST contain the following child elements:

  - A <contact:id> element that contains the server-unique identifier of
  the contact object to be queried.




Hollenbeck              Expires October 24, 2003               [Page 15]


Internet-Draft            EPP Contact mapping             April 24, 2003


  - An OPTIONAL <contact:authInfo> element that contains authorization
  information associated with the contact object.  If this element is
  not provided or if the authorization information is invalid, server
  policy determines if the command is rejected or if response
  information will be returned to the client.

  Example <transfer> query command:

  C:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
  C:<epp xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp-1.0"
  C:     xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
  C:     xsi:schemaLocation="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp-1.0
  C:     epp-1.0.xsd">
  C:  <command>
  C:    <transfer op="query">
  C:      <contact:transfer
  C:       xmlns:contact="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:contact-1.0"
  C:       xsi:schemaLocation="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:contact-1.0
  C:       contact-1.0.xsd">
  C:        <contact:id>sh8013</contact:id>
  C:        <contact:authInfo>
  C:          <contact:pw>2fooBAR</contact:pw>
  C:        </contact:authInfo>
  C:      </contact:transfer>
  C:    </transfer>
  C:    <clTRID>ABC-12345</clTRID>
  C:  </command>
  C:</epp>

  When a <transfer> query command has been processed successfully, the
  EPP <resData> element MUST contain a child <contact:trnData> element
  that identifies the contact namespace and the location of the contact
  schema. The <contact:trnData> element contains the following child
  elements:

  - A <contact:id> element that contains the server-unique identifier
  for the queried contact.

  - A <contact:trStatus> element that contains the state of the most
  recent transfer request.

  - A <contact:reID> element that contains the identifier of the client
  that requested the object transfer.

  - A <contact:reDate> element that contains the date and time that the
  transfer was requested.

  - A <contact:acID> element that contains the identifier of the client

  that SHOULD act upon the transfer request.

  - A <contact:acDate> element that contains the date and time of a
  required or completed response.  For a pending request, the value
  identifies the date and time by which a response is required before an
  automated response action SHOULD be taken by the server.  For all
  other status types, the value identifies the date and time when the
  request was completed.

  Example <transfer> query response:

  S:  </response>
  S:</epp>

  An EPP error response MUST be returned if a <transfer> query command
  can not be processed for any reason.

3.2 EPP Transform Commands

  EPP provides four commands to transform contact object information:
  <create> to create an instance of a contact object, <delete> to delete
  an instance of a contact object, <transfer> to manage contact object



Hollenbeck              Expires October 24, 2003               [Page 17]


Internet-Draft            EPP Contact mapping             April 24, 2003


  sponsorship changes, and <update> to change information associated
  with a contact object.  This document does not define a mapping for
  the EPP <renew> command.

  Transform commands are typically processed and completed in real time.
  Server operators MAY receive and process transform commands, but defer
  completing the requested action if human or third-party review is
  required before the requested action can be completed.  In such
  situations the server MUST return a 1001 response code to the client
  to note that the command has been received and processed, but the
  requested action is pending.  The server MUST also manage the status
  of the object that is the subject of the command to reflect the
  initiation and completion of the requested action.  Once the action
  has been completed, all clients involved in the transaction MUST be
  notified using a service message that the action has been completed
  and that the status of the object has changed.

3.2.1 EPP <create> Command

  The EPP <create> command provides a transform operation that allows a
  client to create a contact object.  In addition to the standard EPP
  command elements, the <create> command MUST contain a <contact:create>
  element that identifies the contact namespace and the location of the
  contact schema.  The <contact:create> element contains the following
  child elements:

  - A <contact:id> element that contains the desired server-unique
  identifier for the contact to be created.

  - One or two <contact:postalInfo> elements that contain postal address
  information.  Two elements are provided so that address information
  can be provided in both internationalized and localized forms; a
  "type" attribute is used to identify the two forms.  If an
  internationalized form (type="int") is provided, element content MUST
  be represented in a subset of UTF-8 that can be represented in the 7-
  bit US-ASCII character set.  If a localized form (type="loc") is
  provided, element content MAY be represented in unrestricted UTF-8.
  The <contact:postalInfo> element contains the following child
  elements:

    - A <contact:name> element that contains the name of the individual
    or role represented by the contact.

    - An OPTIONAL <contact:org> element that contains the name of the
    organization with which the contact is affiliated.

    - A <contact:addr> element that contains address information
    associated with the contact.  A <contact:addr> element contains the

Internet-Draft            EPP Contact mapping             April 24, 2003


    following child elements:

      - One, two, or three OPTIONAL <contact:street> elements that
      contain the contact's street address.

      - A <contact:city> element that contains the contact's city.

      - An OPTIONAL <contact:sp> element that contains the contact's
      state or province.

      - An OPTIONAL <contact:pc> element that contains the contact's
      postal code.

      - A <contact:cc> element that contains the contact's country code.

  - An OPTIONAL <contact:voice> element that contains the contact's
  voice telephone number.

  - An OPTIONAL <contact:fax> element that contains the contact's
  facsimile telephone number.

  - A <contact:email> element that contains the contact's email address.

  - A <contact:authInfo> element that contains authorization information
  to be associated with the contact object.  This mapping includes a
  password-based authentication mechanism, but the schema allows new
  mechanisms to be defined in new schemas.

  - An OPTIONAL <contact:disclose> element that allows a client to
  identify elements that require exceptional server operator handling to
  allow or restrict disclosure to third parties.  See section 2.9 for a
  description of the child elements contained within the
  <contact:disclose> element.

3.2.2 EPP <delete> Command

  The EPP <delete> command provides a transform operation that allows a
  client to delete a contact object.  In addition to the standard EPP
  command elements, the <delete> command MUST contain a <contact:delete>
  element that identifies the contact namespace and the location of the
  contact schema.  The <contact:delete> element MUST contain the
  following child elements:

  - A <contact:id> element that contains the server-unique identifier of
  the contact object to be deleted.

Internet-Draft            EPP Contact mapping             April 24, 2003


  A contact object SHOULD NOT be deleted if it is associated with other
  known objects.  An associated contact SHOULD NOT be deleted until
  associations with other known objects have been broken.  A server
  SHOULD notify clients of object relationships when a <delete> command
  is attempted and fails due to existing object relationships.

  Example <delete> command:

  C:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
  C:<epp xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp-1.0"
  C:     xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"

  C:    <clTRID>ABC-12345</clTRID>
  C:  </command>
  C:</epp>

  When a <delete> command has been processed successfully, a server MUST
  respond with an EPP response with no <resData> element.

  Example <delete> response:

  be processed for any reason.

3.2.3 EPP <renew> Command

  Renewal semantics do not apply to contact objects, so there is no
  mapping defined for the EPP <renew> command.

3.2.4 EPP <transfer> Command

  The EPP <transfer> command provides a transform operation that allows
  a client to manage requests to transfer the sponsorship of a contact
  object.  In addition to the standard EPP command elements, the
  <transfer> command MUST contain a <contact:transfer> element that
  identifies the contact namespace and the location of the contact
  schema. The <contact:transfer> element contains the following child
  elements:

  - A <contact:id> element that contains the server-unique identifier of
  the contact object for which a transfer request is to be created,
  approved, rejected, or cancelled.

  - A <contact:authInfo> element that contains authorization information
  associated with the contact object.

  Every EPP <transfer> command MUST contain an "op" attribute that
  identifies the transfer operation to be performed as defined in [EPP].

3.2.5 EPP <update> Command

  The EPP <update> command provides a transform operation that allows a
  client to modify the attributes of a contact object.  In addition to
  the standard EPP command elements, the <update> command MUST contain a
  <contact:update> element that identifies the contact namespace and the
  location of the contact schema. The <contact:update> element contains
  the following child elements:

  - A <contact:id> element that contains the server-unique identifier of
  the contact object to be updated.

  - An OPTIONAL <contact:add> element that contains attribute values to

  be added to the object.

  - An OPTIONAL <contact:rem> element that contains attribute values to
  be removed from the object.

  - An OPTIONAL <contact:chg> element that contains object attribute
  values to be changed.

  At least one <contact:add>, <contact:rem>, or <contact:chg> element
  MUST be provided.  The <contact:add> and <contact:rem> elements
  contain the following child elements:

  - One or more <contact:status> elements that contain status values to
  be associated with or removed from the object.  When specifying a
  value to be removed, only the attribute value is significant; element
  text is not required to match a value for removal.

  A <contact:chg> element contains the following OPTIONAL child
  elements.  At least one child element MUST be present:

  - One or two <contact:postalInfo> elements that contain postal address
  information.  Two elements are provided so that address information
  can be provided in both internationalized and localized forms; a
  "type" attribute is used to identify the two forms.  If an
  internationalized form (type="int") is provided, element content MUST
  be represented in a subset of UTF-8 that can be represented in the 7-
  bit US-ASCII character set.  If a localized form (type="loc") is
  provided, element content MAY be represented in unrestricted UTF-8.
  The <contact:postalInfo> element contains the following child
  elements:

    - A <contact:name> element that contains the name of the individual
    or role represented by the contact.

    - A <contact:org> element that contains the name of the organization
    with which the contact is affiliated.

    - A <contact:addr> element that contains address information
    associated with the contact.  A <contact:addr> element contains the
    following child elements:

      - One, two, or three OPTIONAL <contact:street> elements that
      contain the contact's street address.

      - A <contact:city> element that contains the contact's city.

      - An OPTIONAL <contact:sp> element that contains the contact's
      state or province.

      - An OPTIONAL <contact:pc> element that contains the contact's
      postal code.

      - A <contact:cc> element that contains the contact's country code.

  - A <contact:voice> element that contains the contact's voice
  telephone number.

  - A <contact:fax> element that contains the contact's facsimile
  telephone number.

  - A <contact:email> element that contains the contact's email address.

  - A <contact:authInfo> element that contains authorization information
  associated with the contact object.  This mapping includes a
  password-based authentication mechanism, but the schema allows new
  mechanisms to be defined in new schemas.

  - A <contact:disclose> element that allows a client to identify
  elements that require exceptional server operator handling to allow or
  restrict disclosure to third parties.  See section 2.9 for a
  description of the child elements contained within the
  <contact:disclose> element.

  An EPP error response MUST be returned if an <update> command can not

3.2.6 Offline Review of Requested Actions

  Commands are processed by a server in the order they are received from
  a client.  Though an immediate response confirming receipt and
  processing of the command is produced by the server, a server operator
  MAY perform an offline review of requested transform commands before
  completing the requested action.  In such situations the response from
  the server MUST clearly note that the transform command has been
  received and processed, but the requested action is pending.  The
  status of the corresponding object MUST clearly reflect processing of
  the pending action.  The server MUST notify the client when offline
  processing of the action has been completed.

  Examples describing a <create> command that requires offline review
  are included here.  Note the result code and message returned in
  response to the <create> command.

  The status of the contact object after returning this response MUST
  include "pendingCreate".  The server operator reviews the request
  offline, and informs the client of the outcome of the review by
  queuing a service message for retrieval via the <poll> command.

  The service message MUST contain text in the <response>, <msgQ>, <msg>
  element that describes the notification.  In addition, the EPP
  <resData> element MUST contain a child <contact:panData> element that
  identifies the contact namespace and the location of the contact
  schema. The <contact:panData> element contains the following child
  elements:

  - A <contact:id> element that contains the server-unique identifier of
  the contact object.  The <contact:id> element contains a REQUIRED
  "paResult" attribute.  A positive boolean value indicates that the
  request has been approved and completed.  A negative boolean value
  indicates that the request has been denied and the requested action
  has not been taken.

  - A <contact:paTRID> element that contains the client transaction
  identifier and server transaction identifier returned with the
  original response to process the command.  The client transaction

  identifier is OPTIONAL and will only be returned if the client
  provided an identifier with the original <create> command.

  - A <contact:paDate> element that contains the date and time
  describing when review of the requested action was completed.

  An EPP object mapping is specified in XML Schema notation.  The formal
  syntax presented here is a complete schema representation of the
  object mapping suitable for automated validation of EPP XML instances.
  The BEGIN and END tags are not part of the schema; they are used to
  note the beginning and ending of the schema for URI registration

5. Internationalization Considerations

  EPP is represented in XML, which provides native support for encoding
  information using the Unicode character set and its more compact
  representations including UTF-8.  Conformant XML processors recognize
  both UTF-8 and UTF-16 [RFC2781].  Though XML includes provisions to
  identify and use other character encodings through use of an
  "encoding" attribute in an <?xml?> declaration, use of UTF-8 is
  RECOMMENDED in environments where parser encoding support
  incompatibility exists.

  All date-time values presented via EPP MUST be expressed in Universal
  Coordinated Time using the Gregorian calendar.  XML Schema allows use
  of time zone identifiers to indicate offsets from the zero meridian,
  but this option MUST NOT be used with EPP.  The extended date-time
  form using upper case "T" and "Z" characters defined in [RFC3339] MUST
  be used to represent date-time values as XML Schema does not support
  truncated date-time forms or lower case "T" and "Z" characters.

  Humans, organizations, and other entities often need to represent
  social information in both a commonly understood character set and a
  locally optimized character set.  This specification provides features
  allowing representation of social information in both a subset of
  UTF-8 for broad readability and unrestricted UTF-8 for local
  optimization.

6. IANA Considerations

  This document uses URNs to describe XML namespaces and XML schemas
  conforming to a registry mechanism described in [IETF-XML].  Two URI
  assignments are requested.

  Registration request for the contact namespace:

  URI: urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:contact-1.0

  Registrant Contact: See the "Author's Address" section of this
  document.

  XML: None.  Namespace URIs do not represent an XML specification.

  Registration request for the contact XML schema:

  URI: urn:ietf:params:xml:schema:contact-1.0

  Registrant Contact: See the "Author's Address" section of this
  document.

  XML: See the "Formal Syntax" section of this document.

7. Security Considerations

  Authorization information as described in section 2.8 is REQUIRED to
  create a contact object.  This information is used in some query and
  transfer operations as an additional means of determining client
  authorization to perform the command.  Failure to protect
  authorization information from inadvertent disclosure can result in
  unauthorized transfer operations and unauthorized information release.
  Both client and server MUST ensure that authorization information is
  stored and exchanged with high-grade encryption mechanisms to provide
  privacy services.

  The object mapping described in this document does not provide any
  other security services or introduce any additional considerations
  beyond those described by [EPP] and protocol layers used by EPP.
