The CRISP (Cross-Registry Information Service Protocol) WG will define a standard mechanism that can be used for finding authoritative information associated with a label, a protocol to transport queries and responses for accessing that information, and a first profile (schema & queries) to support commonly-required queries for domain registration information. Backwards compatibility with existing administrative directory services such as WHOIS is not a goal of this effort. Provisioning of data into registry or registrar systems is likewise out of scope -- CRISP provides a uniform access to and view of data that may be held in disparate backend servers. While the framework created will hopefully be sufficiently flexible to allow re-use by other registries/services with related design criteria, those uses will be deferred to the creation of appropriate schema & query profiles at some future date.
The CRISP service definition will define:
o a standard mechanism that can be used to determine the authoritative server(s) for information about a given label
o a single mandatory to implement protocol for transporting application queries and responses, including
o expression of input query
o expression of result sets
o standard expression of error conditions
o authentication and verification of data integrity
o specific data types and queries to be supported in the first supported registry service: a global service for domain registration information access
o Finalized requirements document for the CRISP service
o Document specifying a new protocol, or the use of an existing one, for providing CRISP service (application transport).
o Document specifying required schema elements and queries for domain registration administrative directory queries.
