Technical Summary

  The iSCSI protocol provides a way for hosts to access SCSI devices
   over an IP network.  The iSCSI end-points each have a globally-unique 
   name that must be transcribable, as well as easily compared.

  This document describes how to prepare internationalized iSCSI names
   to increase the likelihood that name input and comparison work in
   ways that make sense for typical users throughout the world.

   It is a profile for iSCSI  of  RFC 3454, Stringprep.

Working Group Summary

  The working group strongly supported advancement of this specification.
