                         URN Namespace for IEEE

Abstract

   This document describes the Namespace Identifier (NID) 'ieee' for
   Uniform Resource Names (URNs) used to identify resources published by
   the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).  IEEE
   specifies and manages resources that utilize this URN identification
   model.  Management activities for these and other resources types are
   handled by the manager of the IEEE Registration Authority.

1.  Introduction

   The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) is an
   organization whose objectives include the educational and technical
   advancement of electrical and electronic engineering,
   telecommunications, computer engineering, and allied disciplines.
   Within IEEE, standardization activities are organized into sponsors,
   such as the LAN/MAN Standards Committee, and then working groups such
   as 802.1 and 802.3.  See <http://standards.ieee.org>.

   As part of these specification efforts, there is a need to maintain
   identifiers in a managed namespace that is unique and persistent.  To
   ensure that this namespace's uniqueness is absolute, a registration
   of a specific URN Syntax [RFC2141] Namespace Identifier (NID) for use
   by IEEE is specified in this document, in full conformance with the
   NID registration process specified in URN Namespace Definition
   Mechanisms [RFC3406].
