1.  Introduction

   There are many entities, such as registrars, resellers, DNS service
   operators, and privacy proxies, involved in the domain registration
   business.  These kinds of entities are supported in the Extensible
   Provisioning Protocol (EPP) by the "organization" entities in
   [RFC8543].  This document provides a way to associate any EPP object
   such as domain names in [RFC5731], hosts in [RFC5732], and contacts
   in [RFC5733] to "organization" entities in [RFC8543].  The examples
   provided in this document are used for the domain object for
   illustration purposes.  The host and contact object could be extended
   in the same way as the domain object.

   Organization object identifiers, defined in [RFC8543], MUST be known
   to the server before the organization object can be associated with
   the EPP object.

   This document is specified using XML 1.0 as described in
   [W3C.REC-xml-20081126] and XML Schema notation as described in
   [W3C.REC-xmlschema-1-20041028] and [W3C.REC-xmlschema-2-20041028].

2.  Conventions Used in This Document

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "NOT RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and
   "OPTIONAL" in this document are to be interpreted as described in
   BCP 14 [RFC2119] [RFC8174] when, and only when, they appear in all
   capitals, as shown here.

   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 are provided only to illustrate element
   relationships and are not a required feature of this specification.

   XML is case sensitive.  Unless stated otherwise, XML specifications
   and examples provided in this document MUST be interpreted in the
   character case presented.

   The XML namespace prefix "orgext" is used for the namespace
   "urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp:orgext-1.0", but implementations MUST NOT
   depend on it; instead, they should employ a proper namespace-aware
   XML parser and serializer to interpret and output the XML documents.

3.  Object Attributes

   This extension adds additional elements to EPP object mappings such
   as the EPP domain name mapping [RFC5731].  Only the new elements are
   described here.
Top   ToC   Page 4
3.1.  Organization Identifier

   The organization identifier provides the ID of an organization.  Its
   corresponding element is <orgext:id>, which refers to the <org:id>
   element defined in [RFC8543].  All organization objects are
   identified by a server-unique identifier.  A "role" attribute is used
   to represent the relationship that the organization has to the EPP
   object.  Any given object MUST have at most one associated
   organization ID for any given role value.

4.  EPP Command Mapping

   A detailed description of the EPP syntax and semantics can be found
   in the EPP core protocol specification [RFC5730].  The command
   mappings described here are specifically for assigning organizations
   to EPP objects.

4.1.  EPP Query Commands

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

4.1.1.  EPP <check> Command

   This extension does not add any elements to the EPP <check> command
   or <check> response described in the EPP object mapping.

4.1.2.  EPP <info> Command

   This extension does not add any elements to the EPP <info> command
   described in the EPP object mapping.  However, additional elements
   are defined for the <info> response in the EPP object mapping.

   When an <info> command has been processed successfully, the EPP
   <resData> element MUST contain child elements as described in the EPP
   object extensions.  In addition, the EPP <extension> element SHOULD
   contain a child <orgext:infData> element.  This element is returned
   if the object has data that is associated with this extension and
   that is based on server policy.  This element or its ancestor element
Top   ToC   Page 5
   MUST identify the extension namespace
   "urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp:orgext-1.0".  The <orgext:infData>
   element contains the following child elements:

   o  Zero or more <orgext:id> elements are allowed that contain the
      identifier of the organization, as defined in Section 3.1.  The
      "role" attribute is used to represent the relationship that the
      organization has to the object.  See Section 7.3 of [RFC8543] for
      a list of values.

   Example <info> response for an authorized client with multiple
   organizations:

   An EPP error response MUST be returned if an <info> command cannot be
   processed for any reason.
Top   ToC   Page 8
4.1.3.  EPP <transfer> Query Command

   This extension does not add any elements to the EPP <transfer> query
   command or <transfer> query response described in the EPP object
   mapping.

4.2.  EPP Transform Commands

   EPP provides five commands to transform EPP objects: <create> to
   create an instance of an object, <delete> to delete an instance of an
   object, <renew> to extend the validity period of an object,
   <transfer> to manage the object sponsorship changes, and <update> to
   change information associated with an object.

4.2.1.  EPP <create> Command

   This extension defines additional elements for the EPP <create>
   command described in the EPP object extensions.  No additional
   elements are defined for the EPP <create> response.

   The EPP <create> command provides a transform operation that allows a
   client to create an object.  In addition to the EPP command elements
   described in the EPP object extensions, the command MUST contain an
   <extension> element, and the <extension> element MUST contain a child
   <orgext:create> element.  This element is used if the client wants to
   associate data defined in this extension to the object.  This element
   or its ancestor element MUST identify the extension namespace
   "urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp:orgext-1.0".  The <orgext:create> element
   contains the following child elements:

   o  One or more <orgext:id> elements that contain the identifier of
      the organization, as defined in Section 3.1.  The "role" attribute
      is used to represent the relationship that the organization has to
      the object.  See Section 7.3 of [RFC8543] for a list of values.

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

   When a <create> command has been processed successfully, the EPP
   response is as described in the EPP object extension.

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

4.2.2.  EPP <delete> Command

   This extension does not add any elements to the EPP <delete> command
   or <delete> response described in the EPP object mapping.

4.2.3.  EPP <renew> Command

   This extension does not add any elements to the EPP <renew> command
   or <renew> response described in the EPP object mapping.
Top   ToC   Page 11
4.2.4.  EPP <transfer> Command

   This extension does not add any elements to the EPP <transfer>
   command or <transfer> response described in the EPP object mapping,
   but after a successful transfer of an object with an assigned
   organization, the handling of the assigned organization is dependent
   on the organization roles and server policy.

4.2.5.  EPP <update> Command

   This extension defines additional elements for the EPP <update>
   command described in the EPP domain mapping [RFC5731], host mapping
   [RFC5732], and contact mapping [RFC5733].  No additional elements are
   defined for the EPP <update> response.

   The EPP <update> command provides a transform operation that allows a
   client to modify the attributes of an object.  In addition to the EPP
   <update> command elements, the command MUST contain an <extension>
   element, and the <extension> element MUST contain a child
   <orgext:update> element.  This element is used if the client wants to
   update the object with data defined in this extension.  This element
   or its ancestor element MUST identify the extension namespace
   "urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp:orgext-1.0".  The <orgext:update> element
   contains the following child elements:

   o  An OPTIONAL <orgext:add> element that contains one or more
      <orgext:id> elements, as defined in Section 3.1, that add
      nonexistent organization roles to the object.  The <orgext:id>
      element MUST have a non-empty organization identifier value.  The
      server SHOULD validate that the <orgext:id> element role does not
      exist.

   o  An OPTIONAL <orgext:rem> element that contains one or more
      <orgext:id> elements, as defined in Section 3.1, that remove
      organization roles from the object.  The <orgext:id> element MAY
      have an empty organization identifier value.  The server SHOULD
      validate the existence of the <orgext:id> element role and the
      organization identifier if provided.

   o  An OPTIONAL <orgext:chg> element that contains one or more
      <orgext:id> elements, as defined in Section 3.1, that change
      organization role identifiers for the object.  The existing

      role.  The server SHOULD validate the existence of the <orgext:id>
      element role.

   At least one <orgext:add>, <orgext:rem>, or <orgext:chg> element MUST
   be provided.

   When an extended <update> command has been processed successfully,
   the EPP response is as described in the EPP object extension.

   An EPP error response MUST be returned if an <update> command cannot
   be processed for any reason.  An attempt to add one organization ID
   or multiple organization IDs with a particular role value when at
   least one of them already exists does not change the object at all.
   A server SHOULD notify clients that object relationships exist by
   sending a 2305 error response code.  An attempt to remove an
   organization ID or multiple organization IDs with a particular role
   value when at least one of them does not exist does not change the
   object at all.  A server SHOULD notify clients that object
   relationships do not exist by sending a 2305 error response code.  An
   attempt to change an organization ID or multiple organization IDs
   with a particular role value when at least one of them does not exist
   does not change the object at all.  A server SHOULD notify clients
   that object relationships do not exist by sending a 2305 error
   response code.  Response format with error value elements is defined
   in Section 2.6 of [RFC5730].

5.  Formal Syntax

   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.

6.  Internationalization Considerations

   EPP is represented in XML, which provides native support for encoding
   information using the Unicode character set [UNICODE] and its more
   compact representations, including UTF-8.  Conformant XML processors
   recognize both UTF-8 [RFC3629] 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.

   As an extension of the EPP object mapping, the elements and element
   content described in this document MUST inherit the
   internationalization conventions used to represent higher-layer
   domain and core protocol structures present in an XML instance that
   includes this extension.

7.  IANA Considerations

7.1.  XML Namespace

   This document uses URNs to describe XML namespaces and XML schemas
   conforming to a registry mechanism described in [RFC3688].  IANA has
   assigned the following URI.

   The organization extension namespace:

      URI: urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp:orgext-1.0

      Registrant Contact: IESG

      XML: None.  Namespace URIs do not represent an XML specification.

   The organization XML schema:

      URI: urn:ietf:params:xml:schema:epp:orgext-1.0

      Registrant Contact: IESG

      XML: See the "Formal Syntax" section of RFC 8544 (this document).
Top   ToC   Page 19
7.2.  EPP Extension Registry

   The EPP extension described in this document has been registered by
   IANA in the "Extensions for the Extensible Provisioning Protocol
   (EPP)" registry described in [RFC7451].  The details of the
   registration are as follows:

   Name of Extension: Organization Extension for the Extensible
   Provisioning Protocol (EPP)

   Document Status: Standards Track

   Reference: RFC 8544

   Registrant Name and Email Address: IESG, iesg@ietf.org

   TLDs: Any

   IPR Disclosure: None

   Status: Active

   Notes: None

8.  Security Considerations

   The object mapping extension described in this document does not
   provide any other security services or introduce any additional
   considerations beyond those described by [RFC5730], [RFC5731],
   [RFC5732], and [RFC5733] or those caused by the protocol layers used
   by EPP.
