                    URN Namespace for ETSI Documents

Abstract

   This document describes the Namespace Identifier (NID) "etsi" for
   Uniform Resource Names (URNs) used to identify resources published by
   the European Telecommunications Standards Institute
   (http://etsi.org).  ETSI specifies and manages resources that utilize
   this URN identification model.  Management activities for these and
   other resource types are handled by the manager of the ETSI Protocol
   Naming and Numbering Service (PNNS).

RFC 8515                   Namespace for ETSI              February 2019

1.  Introduction

   ETSI is a nonprofit international industry standards organization
   that produces globally acceptable standards for information and
   communication technologies including fixed, mobile, radio, broadcast,
   internet, aeronautical, and other areas.

   As part of these efforts, there is a need to specify identifiers in a
   managed namespace that are unique and persistent.  To ensure that
   this namespace's uniqueness is absolute, the registration of a
   specific Uniform Resource Name (URN) [RFC8141] Namespace Identifier
   (NID) for use by ETSI is specified in this document, in full
   conformance with the NID registration process specified in [RFC8141].
