vwrap -- Virtual World Region Agent Protocol - IETF working group


About vwrap
English (USA)

This is the IETF mailing list for the VWRAP working group.

The working group will define the Virtual World Region Agent Protocol (VWRAP) for a collaborative 3-dimensional virtual environment. The protocol permits users to interact as digital representations called "avatars". An avatar exists in at most one location within a shared virtual space. Conforming client applications use the protocol to manipulate and move the user's avatar, create virtual objects, interact with other users and their surroundings, consume and create media and information from sources inside and outside their simulated environment.

A virtual space can be partitioned into "regions" to facilitate the computational and communication load balancing required to simulate the virtual environment. A region provides the service environment in which inhabitants and objects can interact. A region uniquely represents a partition of the virtual space; they are not a mechanism for load balancing by having multiple instances of the same space. Different regions may be administered by different organizations. The state of a virtual world is independent of the client applications that access it and may persist between user sessions.

Within a VWRAP virtual environment, services may be deployed by multiple organizations having varying policies and trust domains. The VWRAP protocol will provide the mechanisms for these services to interoperate, when permitted by policy. The working group may document examples of policies applicable to a VWRAP environment.
