RFC 4479, "A Data Model for Presence", July 2006

Source of RFC: simple (rai)

Errata ID: 2963
Status: Held for Document Update
Type: Technical
Publication Format(s) : TEXT

Reported By: Raphael Bossek
Date Reported: 2011-09-08
Held for Document Update by: Robert Sparks

Section 7.1. says:

<dm:deviceID>mac:8asd7d7d70</dm:deviceID>
...
<dm:deviceID>mac:8asd7d7d70</dm:deviceID>

It should say:

Replace both with

<dm:deviceID>urn:uuid:698137d0-b395-11e0-aff2-0800200c9a66</dm:deviceID>

Notes:

As mentioned in Errata ID 2131 and 2962 a valid URN as defined in RFC3406: Uniform Resource Names (URN) Namespace Definition Mechanisms should be used for <dm:deviceID>. This is not the case for this example.
RFC 4479 in section 3.4. Device RECOMMENDS version 1 UUIDs for the <deviceID> element: "For devices with a MAC address, version 1 UUIDs are RECOMMENDED, as they result in a time-based identifier that makes use of the MAC address."
