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. Protocol Quality During Last Call, there was some very constructive review by the community. The document was reviewed for the IESG by Paul Hoffman and Allison Mankin RFC Editor Note: Old: In addition, any upper-case characters input via a user interface should be mapped to their lower-case equivalents. New: In addition, any upper-case characters input via a user interface MUST be mapped to their lower-case equivalents. The reference to [stringprep] in Section 6 should be a reference to [RFC3454].
