Technical Summary This document specifies a method to find which Registration Data Access Protocol (RDAP) server is authoritative to answer queries for a requested scope, such as domain names, IP addresses or Autonomous System numbers. Working Group Summary The WG spent a good deal of time working on the wording of the IANA section. Attempts were made to clarify the specific data output requirements without providing instruction to IANA on update frequency, policy, etc., since this work has the unusual complication that the registry policies actually will mirror whatever rules ICANN puts in place for updating their name and number registries. IANA was consulted and (at last check) was satisfied with the proposed way forward. Document Quality The document appears to have the support of the WG, and there is at least one implementation in progress. Personnel The document shepherd is Michael Szucs. Pete Resnick is the responsible Area Director.
