Technical Summary The Registration Data Access Protocol (RDAP) provides "RESTful" web services to retrieve registration metadata from domain name and regional internet registries. This document describes information security services, specific requirements for RDAP, and approaches to provide RDAP security services. The document is requesting Proposed Standard status as per the definition of a Technical Specification in RFC2026 Section 3.1. It defines a set of protocol requirements and solutions for those, and as such is part of an overal protocol specification. Working Group Summary The document has received broad review and support of the participants of the WEIRDS working group. Document Quality Expert review of the Security Area Directorate will happen automatically, so such was not explicitly solicited to date. No other external reviews from other directorates or expertise areas appear to be necessary as this merely discusses security requirements and does not touch directly on other services (e.g., DNS) or concepts (e.g., internationalization). Personnel Murray Kucherawy is the document shepherd. Pete Resnick is the responsible Area Director.
