 A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts 
 directories. This draft is a work item of the Integrated Directory 
 Services Working Group of the IETF.                                       

       Title     : Internet Nomenclator Project                            
       Author(s) : J. Ordille
       Filename  : draft-ietf-ids-inp-00.txt
       Pages     : 14

The goal of the Internet Nomenclator Project is to integrate the hundreds 
of publicly available CCSO servers from around the world.  Each CCSO server
has a database schema that is tailored to the needs of the organization 
that owns it.  The project is integrating the different database schema 
into one query service.  The Internet Nomenclator Project will provide fast
cross-server searches for locating people on the Internet.  It augments 
existing CCSO services by supplying schema integration, more extensive 
indexing, and two kinds of caching -- all this in a system that scales as 
the number of CCSO servers grows.  One of the best things about the system 
is that administrators can incorporate their CCSO servers into Nomenclator 
without changing the servers. All Nomenclator needs is basic information 
about the server.                   

This document provides an overview of the Nomenclator system, describes 
how to register a CCSO server in the Internet Nomenclator Project, and 
how to use the Nomenclator search engine to find people on the Internet.  
Distribution of this document is unlimited.  Comments should be sent 
to the author.

Internet-Drafts are also available by mail.	
Send a message to:  mailserv@ds.internic.net. In the body type: 
     "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-ietf-ids-inp-00.txt".
NOTE: The mail server at ds.internic.net can return the document in
      MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
      feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
      command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
      a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
      exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
      "multipart" MIME messages (i.e., documents which have been split
      up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
      how to manipulate these messages.
For questions, please mail to Internet-Drafts@ietf.org

Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader 
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version
of the Internet-Draft.
