1. Introduction

This document describes a personal and organizational identifier mapping for version 1.0 of the Extensible Provisioning Protocol (EPP). This mapping is specified using the Extensible Markup Language (XML) 1.0 as described in [XML] and XML Schema notation as described in [XMLS-1] and [XMLS-2]. [RFC3730] provides a complete description of EPP command and response structures. A thorough understanding of the base protocol specification is necessary to understand the mapping described in this document. XML is case sensitive. Unless stated otherwise, XML specifications and examples provided in this document MUST be interpreted in the character case presented to develop a conforming implementation.

1.1. Conventions Used In This Document

The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT", "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this document are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2119]. In examples, "C:" represents lines sent by a protocol client and "S:" represents lines returned by a protocol server. Indentation and white space in examples is provided only to illustrate element relationships and is not a REQUIRED feature of this protocol.
ToP   noToC   RFC3733 - Page 3

2. Object Attributes

An EPP contact object has attributes and associated values that can be viewed and modified by the sponsoring client or the server. This section describes each attribute type in detail. The formal syntax for the attribute values described here can be found in the "Formal Syntax" section of this document and in the appropriate normative references.

2.1. Contact and Client Identifiers

All EPP contacts are identified by a server-unique identifier. Contact identifiers are character strings with a specified minimum length, a specified maximum length, and a specified format. Contact identifiers use the "clIDType" client identifier syntax described in [RFC3730].

2.2. Status Values

A contact object MUST always have at least one associated status value. Status values can be set only by the client that sponsors a contact object and by the server on which the object resides. A client can change the status of a contact object using the EPP <update> command. Each status value MAY be accompanied by a string of human-readable text that describes the rationale for the status applied to the object. A client MUST NOT alter status values set by the server. A server MAY alter or override status values set by a client subject to local server policies. The status of an object MAY change as a result of either a client-initiated transform command or an action performed by a server operator. Status values that can be added or removed by a client are prefixed with "client". Corresponding status values that can be added or removed by a server are prefixed with "server". Status values that do not begin with either "client" or "server" are server-managed. Status Value Descriptions: - clientDeleteProhibited, serverDeleteProhibited Requests to delete the object MUST be rejected. - clientTransferProhibited, serverTransferProhibited Requests to transfer the object MUST be rejected.
ToP   noToC   RFC3733 - Page 4
   -  clientUpdateProhibited, serverUpdateProhibited

   Requests to update the object (other than to remove this status) MUST
   be rejected.

   -  linked

   The contact object has at least one active association with another
   object, such as a domain object.  Servers SHOULD provide services to
   determine existing object associations.

   -  ok

   This is the normal status value for an object that has no pending
   operations or prohibitions.  This value is set and removed by the
   server as other status values are added or removed.

   -  pendingCreate, pendingDelete, pendingTransfer, pendingUpdate

   A transform command has been processed for the object, but the action
   has not been completed by the server.  Server operators can delay
   action completion for a variety of reasons, such as to allow for
   human review or third-party action.  A transform command that is
   processed, but whose requested action is pending, is noted with
   response code 1001.

   With one exception, transform commands MUST be rejected when a
   pendingCreate, pendingDelete, pendingTransfer, or pendingUpdate
   status is set.  The only exception is that a <transfer> command to
   approve, reject, or cancel a transfer MAY be processed while an
   object is in "pendingTransfer" status.

   When the requested action has been completed, the pendingCreate,
   pendingDelete, pendingTransfer, or pendingUpdate status value MUST be
   removed.  All clients involved in the transaction MUST be notified
   using a service message that the action has been completed and that
   the status of the object has changed.

   "ok" status MAY only be combined with "linked" status.

   "linked" status MAY be combined with any status.

   "pendingDelete" status MUST NOT be combined with either
   "clientDeleteProhibited" or "serverDeleteProhibited" status.

   "pendingTransfer" status MUST NOT be combined with either
   "clientTransferProhibited" or "serverTransferProhibited" status.
ToP   noToC   RFC3733 - Page 5
   "pendingUpdate" status MUST NOT be combined with either
   "clientUpdateProhibited" or "serverUpdateProhibited" status.

   The pendingCreate, pendingDelete, pendingTransfer, and pendingUpdate
   status values MUST NOT be combined with each other.

   Other status combinations not expressly prohibited MAY be used.

2.3. Individual and Organizational Names

Individual and organizational names associated with a contact are represented using character strings. These strings have a specified minimum length and a specified maximum length. Individual and organizational names MAY be provided in both UTF-8 [RFC2279] and a subset of UTF-8 that can be represented in 7-bit ASCII depending on local needs.

2.4. Address

Every contact has associated postal address information. A postal address contains OPTIONAL street information, city information, OPTIONAL state/province information, an OPTIONAL postal code, and a country identifier. Address information MAY be provided in both UTF-8 and a subset of UTF-8 that can be represented in 7-bit ASCII depending on local needs.

2.4.1. Street, City, and State or Province

Contact street, city, and state or province information is represented using character strings. These strings have a specified minimum length and a specified maximum length.

2.4.2. Postal Code

Contact postal codes are represented using character strings. These strings have a specified minimum length and a specified maximum length.

2.4.3. Country

Contact country identifiers are represented using two-character identifiers specified in [ISO3166].

2.5. Telephone Numbers

Contact telephone number structure is derived from structures defined in [E164a]. Telephone numbers described in this mapping are character strings that MUST begin with a plus sign ("+", ASCII value
ToP   noToC   RFC3733 - Page 6
   0x002B), followed by a country code defined in [E164b], followed by a
   dot (".", ASCII value 0x002E), followed by a sequence of digits
   representing the telephone number.  An optional "x" attribute is
   provided to note telephone extension information.

2.6. Email Addresses

Email address syntax is defined in [RFC2822]. This mapping does not prescribe minimum or maximum lengths for character strings used to represent email addresses.

2.7. Dates and Times

Date and time attribute values MUST be represented in Universal Coordinated Time (UTC) using the Gregorian calendar. The extended date-time form using upper case "T" and "Z" characters defined in [RFC3339] MUST be used to represent date-time values as XML Schema does not support truncated date-time forms or lower case "T" and "Z" characters.

2.8. Authorization Information

Authorization information is associated with contact objects to facilitate transfer operations. Authorization information is assigned when a contact object is created, and it might be updated in the future. This specification describes password-based authorization information, though other mechanisms are possible.

2.9. Disclosure of Data Elements and Attributes

The EPP core protocol requires a server operator to announce data collection policies to clients; see section 2.4 of [RFC3730]. In conjunction with this disclosure requirement, this mapping includes data elements that allow a client to identify elements that require exceptional server operator handling to allow or restrict disclosure to third parties. A server operator announces a default disclosure policy when establishing a session with a client. When an object is created or updated, the client can specify contact attributes that require exceptional disclosure handling using an OPTIONAL <contact:disclose> element. Once set, disclosure preferences can be reviewed using a contact information query. A server operator MUST reject any transaction that requests disclosure practices that do not conform to the announced data collection policy with a 2308 error response code.
ToP   noToC   RFC3733 - Page 7
   If present, the <contact:disclose> element MUST contain a "flag"
   attribute.  The "flag" attribute contains an XML Schema boolean
   value.  A value of "true" or "1" (decimal one) notes a client
   preference to allow disclosure of the specified elements as an
   exception to the stated data collection policy.  A value of "false"
   or "0" (decimal zero) notes a client preference to not allow
   disclosure of the specified elements as an exception to the stated
   data collection policy.

   The <contact:disclose> element MUST contain at least one of the
   following child elements:

   <contact:name type="int">
   <contact:name type="loc">
   <contact:org type="int">
   <contact:org type="loc">
   <contact:addr type="int">
   <contact:addr type="loc">
   <contact:voice>
   <contact:fax>
   <contact:email>

   Example <contact:disclose> element, flag="0":

   <contact:disclose flag="0">
     <contact:email>
     <contact:voice>
   </contact:disclose>

   In this example, the contact email address and voice telephone number
   can not be disclosed.  All other elements are subject to disclosure
   in accordance with the server's data collection policy.

   Example <contact:disclose> element, flag="1":

   <contact:disclose flag="1">
     <contact:name type="int">
     <contact:org type="int">
     <contact:addr type="int">
   </contact:disclose>

   In this example, the internationalized contact name, organization,
   and address information can be disclosed.  All other elements are
   subject to disclosure in accordance with the server's data collection
   policy.
ToP   noToC   RFC3733 - Page 8
   Client identification features provided by the EPP <login> command
   and contact authorization information are used to determine if a
   client is authorized to perform contact information query commands.
   These features also determine if a client is authorized to receive
   data that is otherwise marked for non-disclosure in a query response.

3. EPP Command mapping

A detailed description of the EPP syntax and semantics can be found in [RFC3730]. The command mappings described here are specifically for use in provisioning and managing contact objects via EPP.

3.1. EPP Query Commands

EPP provides three commands to retrieve contact information: <check> to determine if a contact object can be provisioned within a repository, <info> to retrieve detailed information associated with a contact object, and <transfer> to retrieve contact object transfer status information.

3.1.1. EPP <check> Command

The EPP <check> command is used to determine if an object can be provisioned within a repository. It provides a hint that allows a client to anticipate the success or failure of provisioning an object using the <create> command as object provisioning requirements are ultimately a matter of server policy. In addition to the standard EPP command elements, the <check> command MUST contain a <contact:check> element that identifies the contact namespace and the location of the contact schema. The <contact:check> element contains the following child elements: - One or more <contact:id> elements that contain the server-unique identifier of the contact objects to be queried. Example <check> command: C:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?> C:<epp xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp-1.0" C: xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" C: xsi:schemaLocation="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp-1.0 C: epp-1.0.xsd"> C: <command> C: <check> C: <contact:check C: xmlns:contact="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:contact-1.0" C: xsi:schemaLocation="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:contact-1.0
ToP   noToC   RFC3733 - Page 9
   C:       contact-1.0.xsd">
   C:        <contact:id>sh8013</contact:id>
   C:        <contact:id>sah8013</contact:id>
   C:        <contact:id>8013sah</contact:id>
   C:      </contact:check>
   C:    </check>
   C:    <clTRID>ABC-12345</clTRID>
   C:  </command>
   C:</epp>

   When a <check> command has been processed successfully, the EPP
   <resData> element MUST contain a child <contact:chkData> element that
   identifies the contact namespace and the location of the contact
   schema.  The <contact:chkData> element contains one or more
   <contact:cd> elements that contain the following child elements:

   -  A <contact:id> element that identifies the queried object.  This
      element MUST contain an "avail" attribute whose value indicates
      object availability (can it be provisioned or not) at the moment
      the <check> command was completed.  A value of "1" or "true" means
      that the object can be provisioned.  A value of "0" or "false"
      means that the object can not be provisioned.

   -  An OPTIONAL <contact:reason> element that MAY be provided when an
      object can not be provisioned.  If present, this element contains
      server-specific text to help explain why the object can not be
      provisioned.  This text MUST be represented in the response
      language previously negotiated with the client; an OPTIONAL "lang"
      attribute MAY be present to identify the language if the
      negotiated value is something other than the default value of "en"
      (English).

   Example <check> response:

   S:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
   S:<epp xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp-1.0"
   S:     xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
   S:     xsi:schemaLocation="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp-1.0
   S:     epp-1.0.xsd">
   S:  <response>
   S:    <result code="1000">
   S:      <msg>Command completed successfully</msg>
   S:    </result>
   S:    <resData>
   S:      <contact:chkData
   S:       xmlns:contact="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:contact-1.0"
   S:       xsi:schemaLocation="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:contact-1.0
   S:       contact-1.0.xsd">
ToP   noToC   RFC3733 - Page 10
   S:        <contact:cd>
   S:          <contact:id avail="1">sh8013</contact:id>
   S:        </contact:cd>
   S:        <contact:cd>
   S:          <contact:id avail="0">sah8013</contact:id>
   S:          <contact:reason>In use</contact:reason>
   S:        </contact:cd>
   S:        <contact:cd>
   S:          <contact:id avail="1">8013sah</contact:id>
   S:        </contact:cd>
   S:      </contact:chkData>
   S:    </resData>
   S:    <trID>
   S:      <clTRID>ABC-12345</clTRID>
   S:      <svTRID>54322-XYZ</svTRID>
   S:    </trID>
   S:  </response>
   S:</epp>

   An EPP error response MUST be returned if a <check> command can not
   be processed for any reason.

3.1.2. EPP <info> Command

The EPP <info> command is used to retrieve information associated with a contact object. In addition to the standard EPP command elements, the <info> command MUST contain a <contact:info> element that identifies the contact namespace and the location of the contact schema. The <contact:info> element contains the following child elements: - A <contact:id> element that contains the server-unique identifier of the contact object to be queried. - An OPTIONAL <contact:authInfo> element that contains authorization information associated with the contact object. If this element is not provided or if the authorization information is invalid, server policy determines if the command is rejected or if response information will be returned to the client. Example <info> command: C:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?> C:<epp xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp-1.0" C: xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" C: xsi:schemaLocation="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp-1.0 C: epp-1.0.xsd"> C: <command>
ToP   noToC   RFC3733 - Page 11
   C:    <info>
   C:      <contact:info
   C:       xmlns:contact="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:contact-1.0"
   C:       xsi:schemaLocation="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:contact-1.0
   C:       contact-1.0.xsd">
   C:        <contact:id>sh8013</contact:id>
   C:        <contact:authInfo>
   C:          <contact:pw>2fooBAR</contact:pw>
   C:        </contact:authInfo>
   C:      </contact:info>
   C:    </info>
   C:    <clTRID>ABC-12345</clTRID>
   C:  </command>
   C:</epp>

   When an <info> command has been processed successfully, the EPP
   <resData> element MUST contain a child <contact:infData> element that
   identifies the contact namespace and the location of the contact
   schema.  The <contact:infData> element contains the following child
   elements:

   -  A <contact:id> element that contains the server-unique identifier
      of the contact object.

   -  A <contact:roid> element that contains the Repository Object
      IDentifier assigned to the contact object when the object was
      created.

   -  One or more <contact:status> elements that describe the status of
      the contact object.

   -  One or two <contact:postalInfo> elements that contain postal
      address information.  Two elements are provided so that address
      information can be provided in both internationalized and
      localized forms; a "type" attribute is used to identify the two
      forms.  If an internationalized form (type="int") is provided,
      element content MUST be represented in a subset of UTF-8 that can
      be represented in the 7-bit US-ASCII character set.  If a
      localized form (type="loc") is provided, element content MAY be
      represented in unrestricted UTF-8.  The <contact:postalInfo>
      element contains the following child elements:

      -  A <contact:name> element that contains the name of the
         individual or role represented by the contact.

      -  An OPTIONAL <contact:org> element that contains the name of the
         organization with which the contact is affiliated.
ToP   noToC   RFC3733 - Page 12
      -  A <contact:addr> element that contains address information
         associated with the contact.  A <contact:addr> element contains
         the following child elements:

         -  One, two, or three OPTIONAL <contact:street> elements that
            contain the contact's street address.

         -  A <contact:city> element that contains the contact's city.

         -  An OPTIONAL <contact:sp> element that contains the contact's
            state or province.

         -  An OPTIONAL <contact:pc> element that contains the contact's
            postal code.

         -  A <contact:cc> element that contains the contact's country
            code.

   -  An OPTIONAL <contact:voice> element that contains the contact's
      voice telephone number.

   -  An OPTIONAL <contact:fax> element that contains the contact's
      facsimile telephone number.

   -  A <contact:email> element that contains the contact's email
      address.

   -  A <contact:clID> element that contains the identifier of the
      sponsoring client.

   -  A <contact:crID> element that contains the identifier of the
      client that created the contact object.

   -  A <contact:crDate> element that contains the date and time of
      contact object creation.

   -  A <contact:upID> element that contains the identifier of the
      client that last updated the contact object.  This element MUST
      NOT be present if the contact has never been modified.

   -  A <contact:upDate> element that contains the date and time of the
      most recent contact object modification.  This element MUST NOT be
      present if the contact object has never been modified.

   -  A <contact:trDate> element that contains the date and time of the
      most recent successful contact object transfer.  This element MUST
      NOT be provided if the contact object has never been transferred.
ToP   noToC   RFC3733 - Page 13
   -  A <contact:authInfo> element that contains authorization
      information associated with the contact object.  This element MUST
      NOT be provided if the querying client is not the current

   An EPP error response MUST be returned if an <info> command can not
   be processed for any reason.

3.1.3. EPP <transfer> Query Command

The EPP <transfer> command provides a query operation that allows a client to determine real-time status of pending and completed transfer requests. In addition to the standard EPP command elements, the <transfer> command MUST contain an "op" attribute with value "query", and a <contact:transfer> element that identifies the contact namespace and the location of the contact schema. The <contact:transfer> element MUST contain the following child elements: - A <contact:id> element that contains the server-unique identifier of the contact object to be queried. - An OPTIONAL <contact:authInfo> element that contains authorization information associated with the contact object. If this element is not provided or if the authorization information is invalid, server policy determines whether the command is rejected or the response information will be returned to the client. Example <transfer> query command: C:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?> C:<epp xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp-1.0" C: xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" C: xsi:schemaLocation="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp-1.0

   C:  </command>
   C:</epp>

   When a <transfer> query command has been processed successfully, the
   EPP <resData> element MUST contain a child <contact:trnData> element
   that identifies the contact namespace and the location of the contact
   schema.  The <contact:trnData> element contains the following child
   elements:

   -  A <contact:id> element that contains the server-unique identifier
      for the queried contact.

   -  A <contact:trStatus> element that contains the state of the most
      recent transfer request.

   -  A <contact:reID> element that contains the identifier of the
      client that requested the object transfer.

   -  A <contact:reDate> element that contains the date and time that
      the transfer was requested.

   -  A <contact:acID> element that contains the identifier of the
      client that SHOULD act upon the transfer request.

   -  A <contact:acDate> element that contains the date and time of a
      required or completed response.  For a pending request, the value
      identifies the date and time by which a response is required
      before an automated response action SHOULD be taken by the server.
      For all other status types, the value identifies the date and time
      when the request was completed.

   S:  </response>
   S:</epp>

   An EPP error response MUST be returned if a <transfer> query command
   can not be processed for any reason.

3.2. EPP Transform Commands

EPP provides four commands to transform contact object information: <create> to create an instance of a contact object, <delete> to delete an instance of a contact object, <transfer> to manage contact object sponsorship changes, and <update> to change information associated with a contact object. This document does not define a mapping for the EPP <renew> command. Transform commands are typically processed and completed in real time. Server operators MAY receive and process transform commands, but defer completing the requested action if human or third-party review is required before the requested action can be completed. In such situations the server MUST return a 1001 response code to the
ToP   noToC   RFC3733 - Page 17
   client to note that the command has been received and processed, but
   the requested action is pending.  The server MUST also manage the
   status of the object that is the subject of the command to reflect
   the initiation and completion of the requested action.  Once the
   action has been completed, all clients involved in the transaction
   MUST be notified using a service message that the action has been
   completed and that the status of the object has changed.

3.2.1. EPP <create> Command

The EPP <create> command provides a transform operation that allows a client to create a contact object. In addition to the standard EPP command elements, the <create> command MUST contain a <contact:create> element that identifies the contact namespace and the location of the contact schema. The <contact:create> element contains the following child elements: - A <contact:id> element that contains the desired server-unique identifier for the contact to be created. - One or two <contact:postalInfo> elements that contain postal address information. Two elements are provided so that address information can be provided in both internationalized and localized forms; a "type" attribute is used to identify the two forms. If an internationalized form (type="int") is provided, element content MUST be represented in a subset of UTF-8 that can be represented in the 7-bit US-ASCII character set. If a localized form (type="loc") is provided, element content MAY be represented in unrestricted UTF-8. The <contact:postalInfo> element contains the following child elements: - A <contact:name> element that contains the name of the individual or role represented by the contact. - An OPTIONAL <contact:org> element that contains the name of the organization with which the contact is affiliated. - A <contact:addr> element that contains address information associated with the contact. A <contact:addr> element contains the following child elements: - One, two, or three OPTIONAL <contact:street> elements that contain the contact's street address. - A <contact:city> element that contains the contact's city. - An OPTIONAL <contact:sp> element that contains the contact's state or province.
ToP   noToC   RFC3733 - Page 18
         -  An OPTIONAL <contact:pc> element that contains the contact's
            postal code.

         -  A <contact:cc> element that contains the contact's country
            code.

   -  An OPTIONAL <contact:voice> element that contains the contact's
      voice telephone number.

   -  An OPTIONAL <contact:fax> element that contains the contact's
      facsimile telephone number.

   -  A <contact:email> element that contains the contact's email
      address.

   -  A <contact:authInfo> element that contains authorization
      information to be associated with the contact object.  This
      mapping includes a password-based authentication mechanism, but
      the schema allows new mechanisms to be defined in new schemas.

   -  An OPTIONAL <contact:disclose> element that allows a client to
      identify elements that require exceptional server operator
      handling to allow or restrict disclosure to third parties.  See
      section 2.9 for a description of the child elements contained
      within the <contact:disclose> element.

   C:    <clTRID>ABC-12345</clTRID>
   C:  </command>
   C:</epp>

   When a <create> command has been processed successfully, the EPP
   <resData> element MUST contain a child <contact:creData> element that
   identifies the contact namespace and the location of the contact
   schema.  The <contact:creData> element contains the following child
   elements:

   -  A <contact:id> element that contains the server-unique identifier
      for the created contact.

   -  A <contact:crDate> element that contains the date and time of
      contact object creation.

   S:  </response>
   S:</epp>

   An EPP error response MUST be returned if a <create> command can not
   be processed for any reason.

3.2.2. EPP <delete> Command

The EPP <delete> command provides a transform operation that allows a client to delete a contact object. In addition to the standard EPP command elements, the <delete> command MUST contain a <contact:delete> element that identifies the contact namespace and the location of the contact schema. The <contact:delete> element MUST contain the following child element: - A <contact:id> element that contains the server-unique identifier of the contact object to be deleted. A contact object SHOULD NOT be deleted if it is associated with other known objects. An associated contact SHOULD NOT be deleted until associations with other known objects have been broken. A server SHOULD notify clients of object relationships when a <delete> command is attempted and fails due to existing object relationships. Example <delete> command: C:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?> C:<epp xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp-1.0" C: xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" C: xsi:schemaLocation="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp-1.0 C: epp-1.0.xsd"> C: <command> C: <delete> C: <contact:delete C: xmlns:contact="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:contact-1.0" C: xsi:schemaLocation="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:contact-1.0 C: contact-1.0.xsd"> C: <contact:id>sh8013</contact:id> C: </contact:delete>
ToP   noToC   RFC3733 - Page 21
   C:    </delete>
   C:    <clTRID>ABC-12345</clTRID>
   C:  </command>
   C:</epp>

   When a <delete> command has been processed successfully, a server
   MUST respond with an EPP response with no <resData> element.

   Example <delete> response:

   S:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
   S:<epp xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp-1.0"
   S:     xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
   S:     xsi:schemaLocation="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp-1.0
   S:     epp-1.0.xsd">
   S:  <response>
   S:    <result code="1000">
   S:      <msg>Command completed successfully</msg>
   S:    </result>
   S:    <trID>
   S:      <clTRID>ABC-12345</clTRID>
   S:      <svTRID>54321-XYZ</svTRID>
   S:    </trID>
   S:  </response>
   S:</epp>

   An EPP error response MUST be returned if a <delete> command can not
   be processed for any reason.

3.2.3. EPP <renew> Command

Renewal semantics do not apply to contact objects, so there is no mapping defined for the EPP <renew> command.

3.2.4. EPP <transfer> Command

The EPP <transfer> command provides a transform operation that allows a client to manage requests to transfer the sponsorship of a contact object. In addition to the standard EPP command elements, the <transfer> command MUST contain a <contact:transfer> element that identifies the contact namespace and the location of the contact schema. The <contact:transfer> element contains the following child elements: - A <contact:id> element that contains the server-unique identifier of the contact object for which a transfer request is to be created, approved, rejected, or cancelled.
ToP   noToC   RFC3733 - Page 22
   -  A <contact:authInfo> element that contains authorization
      information associated with the contact object.

      Every EPP <transfer> command MUST contain an "op" attribute that
      identifies the transfer operation to be performed as defined in
      [RFC3730].

   Example <transfer> request command:

   C:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
   C:<epp xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp-1.0"
   C:     xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
   C:     xsi:schemaLocation="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp-1.0
   C:     epp-1.0.xsd">
   C:  <command>
   C:    <transfer op="request">
   C:      <contact:transfer
   C:       xmlns:contact="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:contact-1.0"
   C:       xsi:schemaLocation="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:contact-1.0
   C:       contact-1.0.xsd">
   C:        <contact:id>sh8013</contact:id>
   C:        <contact:authInfo>
   C:          <contact:pw>2fooBAR</contact:pw>
   C:        </contact:authInfo>
   C:      </contact:transfer>
   C:    </transfer>
   C:    <clTRID>ABC-12345</clTRID>
   C:  </command>
   C:</epp>

   When a <transfer> command has been processed successfully, the EPP
   <resData> element MUST contain a child <contact:trnData> element that
   identifies the contact namespace and the location of the contact
   schema.  The <contact:trnData> element contains the same child
   elements defined for a transfer query response.

   Example <transfer> response:

   S:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
   S:<epp xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp-1.0"
   S:     xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"

   An EPP error response MUST be returned if a <transfer> command can
   not be processed for any reason.

3.2.5. EPP <update> Command

The EPP <update> command provides a transform operation that allows a client to modify the attributes of a contact object. In addition to the standard EPP command elements, the <update> command MUST contain a <contact:update> element that identifies the contact namespace and the location of the contact schema. The <contact:update> element contains the following child elements: - A <contact:id> element that contains the server-unique identifier of the contact object to be updated. - An OPTIONAL <contact:add> element that contains attribute values to be added to the object. - An OPTIONAL <contact:rem> element that contains attribute values to be removed from the object. - An OPTIONAL <contact:chg> element that contains object attribute values to be changed. At least one <contact:add>, <contact:rem>, or <contact:chg> element MUST be provided. The <contact:add> and <contact:rem> elements contain the following child elements:
ToP   noToC   RFC3733 - Page 24
   -  One or more <contact:status> elements that contain status values
      to be associated with or removed from the object.  When specifying
      a value to be removed, only the attribute value is significant;
      element text is not required to match a value for removal.

   A <contact:chg> element contains the following OPTIONAL child
   elements.  At least one child element MUST be present:

   -  One or two <contact:postalInfo> elements that contain postal
      address information.  Two elements are provided so that address
      information can be provided in both internationalized and
      localized forms; a "type" attribute is used to identify the two
      forms.  If an internationalized form (type="int") is provided,
      element content MUST be represented in a subset of UTF-8 that can
      be represented in the 7-bit US-ASCII character set.  If a
      localized form (type="loc") is provided, element content MAY be
      represented in unrestricted UTF-8.  The <contact:postalInfo>
      element contains the following OPTIONAL child elements:

      -  A <contact:name> element that contains the name of the
         individual or role represented by the contact.

      -  A <contact:org> element that contains the name of the
         organization with which the contact is affiliated.

      -  A <contact:addr> element that contains address information
         associated with the contact.  A <contact:addr> element contains
         the following child elements:

         -  One, two, or three OPTIONAL <contact:street> elements that
            contain the contact's street address.

         -  A <contact:city> element that contains the contact's city.

         -  An OPTIONAL <contact:sp> element that contains the contact's
            state or province.

         -  An OPTIONAL <contact:pc> element that contains the contact's
            postal code.

         -  A <contact:cc> element that contains the contact's country
            code.

   -  A <contact:voice> element that contains the contact's voice
      telephone number.
ToP   noToC   RFC3733 - Page 25
   -  A <contact:fax> element that contains the contact's facsimile
      telephone number.

   -  A <contact:email> element that contains the contact's email
      address.

   -  A <contact:authInfo> element that contains authorization
      information associated with the contact object.  This mapping
      includes a password-based authentication mechanism, but the schema
      allows new mechanisms to be defined in new schemas.

   -  A <contact:disclose> element that allows a client to identify
      elements that require exceptional server operator handling to
      allow or restrict disclosure to third parties.  See section 2.9.
      for a description of the child elements contained within the
      <contact:disclose> element.

   Example <update> command:

   C:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>

   C:  </command>
   C:</epp>

   When an <update> command has been processed successfully, a server
   MUST respond with an EPP response with no <resData> element.

   Example <update> response:

   S:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
   S:<epp xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp-1.0"
   S:     xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"

   S:  <response>

   S:      <msg>Command completed successfully</msg>
   S:    </result>
   S:    <trID>
   S:      <clTRID>ABC-12345</clTRID>
   S:      <svTRID>54321-XYZ</svTRID>
   S:    </trID>
   S:  </response>
   S:</epp>

   An EPP error response MUST be returned if an <update> command can not
   be processed for any reason.

3.2.6. Offline Review of Requested Actions

Commands are processed by a server in the order they are received from a client. Though an immediate response confirming receipt and processing of the command is produced by the server, a server operator MAY perform an offline review of requested transform commands before completing the requested action. In such situations, the response from the server MUST clearly note that the transform command has been received and processed, but the requested action is pending. The status of the corresponding object MUST clearly reflect
ToP   noToC   RFC3733 - Page 27
   processing of the pending action.  The server MUST notify the client
   when offline processing of the action has been completed.

   Examples describing a <create> command that requires offline review
   are included here.  Note the result code and message returned in
   response to the <create> command.

   S:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
   S:<epp xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp-1.0"
   S:     xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
   S:     xsi:schemaLocation="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp-1.0
   S:     epp-1.0.xsd">
   S:  <response>
   S:    <result code="1001">
   S:      <msg>Command completed successfully; action pending</msg>
   S:    </result>
   S:    <resData>
   S:      <contact:creData
   S:       xmlns:contact="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:contact-1.0"
   S:       xsi:schemaLocation="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:contact-1.0
   S:       contact-1.0.xsd">
   S:        <contact:id>sh8013</contact:id>
   S:        <contact:crDate>1999-04-03T22:00:00.0Z</contact:crDate>
   S:      </contact:creData>
   S:    </resData>
   S:    <trID>
   S:      <clTRID>ABC-12345</clTRID>
   S:      <svTRID>54321-XYZ</svTRID>
   S:    </trID>
   S:  </response>
   S:</epp>

   The status of the contact object after returning this response MUST
   include "pendingCreate".  The server operator reviews the request
   offline, and informs the client of the outcome of the review by
   queuing a service message for retrieval via the <poll> command.

   The service message MUST contain text in the <response>, <msgQ>,
   <msg> element that describes the notification.  In addition, the EPP
   <resData> element MUST contain a child <contact:panData> element that
   identifies the contact namespace and the location of the contact
   schema.  The <contact:panData> element contains the following child
   elements:

   -  A <contact:id> element that contains the server-unique identifier
      of the contact object.  The <contact:id> element contains a
      REQUIRED "paResult" attribute.  A positive boolean value indicates
      that the request has been approved and completed.  A negative
ToP   noToC   RFC3733 - Page 28
      boolean value indicates that the request has been denied and the
      requested action has not been taken.

   -  A <contact:paTRID> element that contains the client transaction
      identifier and server transaction identifier returned with the
      original response to process the command.  The client transaction
      identifier is OPTIONAL and will only be returned if the client
      provided an identifier with the original <create> command.

   -  A <contact:paDate> element that contains the date and time
      describing when review of the requested action was completed.

   Example "review completed" service message:

   S:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
   S:<epp xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp-1.0"
   S:     xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"

An EPP object mapping is specified in XML Schema notation. The formal syntax presented here is a complete schema representation of the object mapping suitable for automated validation of EPP XML instances. The BEGIN and END tags are not part of the schema; they are used to note the beginning and ending of the schema for URI registration purposes.

5. Internationalization Considerations

EPP is represented in XML, which provides native support for encoding information using the Unicode character set and its more compact representations, including UTF-8. Conformant XML processors recognize both UTF-8 and UTF-16 [RFC2781]. Though XML includes provisions to identify and use other character encodings through use of an "encoding" attribute in an <?xml?> declaration, use of UTF-8 is RECOMMENDED in environments where parser encoding support incompatibility exists. All date-time values presented via EPP MUST be expressed in Universal Coordinated Time using the Gregorian calendar. The XML Schema allows use of time zone identifiers to indicate offsets from the zero meridian, but this option MUST NOT be used with EPP. The extended date-time form using upper case "T" and "Z" characters defined in [RFC3339] MUST be used to represent date-time values as the XML Schema does not support truncated date-time forms or lower case "T" and "Z" characters. Humans, organizations, and other entities often need to represent social information in both a commonly understood character set and a locally optimized character set. This specification provides features allowing representation of social information in both a subset of UTF-8 for broad readability and unrestricted UTF-8 for local optimization.

6. IANA Considerations

This document uses URNs to describe XML namespaces and XML schemas conforming to a registry mechanism described in [RFC3688]. Two URI assignments have been registered by the IANA. Registration request for the contact namespace: URI: urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:contact-1.0 Registrant Contact: See the "Author's Address" section of this document. XML: None. Namespace URIs do not represent an XML specification. Registration request for the contact XML schema: URI: urn:ietf:params:xml:schema:contact-1.0 Registrant Contact: See the "Author's Address" section of this document. XML: See the "Formal Syntax" section of this document.

7. Security Considerations

Authorization information as described in section 2.8. is REQUIRED to create a contact object. This information is used in some query and transfer operations as an additional means of determining client authorization to perform the command. Failure to protect authorization information from inadvertent disclosure can result in unauthorized transfer operations and unauthorized information release. Both client and server MUST ensure that authorization information is stored and exchanged with high-grade encryption mechanisms to provide privacy services. The object mapping described in this document does not provide any other security services or introduce any additional considerations beyond those described by [RFC3730] and protocol layers used by EPP.
