Internet White Pages Requirements (WHIP) Charter


Mailing List Information

Description of Working Group

At the Seattle IETF in March 1994, a BOF was held on the establishment of a Simple Internet White Pages Service (SIWPS). A basic model was proposed, and further work was defined. One of the requested work items was a definition of the basic requirements for such a service. This working group is chartered to produce a single Informational RFC capturing these basic requirements. It will do so without prejudice to existing solutions or implementations.

The requirements document should only contain the basic requirements for a SIWPS. The list is not meant to be exhaustive, but rather should provide a set of minimum requirements to guide the overall structure of white pages service effort; these requirements can be used by related IETF working groups to start to define the Internet white pages service.

The working group is meant to be short-lived and to produce only the one document.
