Abstract

The requirements document for URN resolution systems defines the concept of a "resolver discovery service". This document describes the first, experimental, RDS. It is implemented by a new DNS Resource Record, NAPTR (Naming Authority PoinTeR), that provides rules for mapping parts of URIs to domain names. This memo defines an Experimental Protocol for the Internet community.
