A Revised Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories. This draft is a work item of the Whois and Network Information Lookup Service Working Group of the IETF. Title : Architecture of the WHOIS++ service Author(s) : P. Deutsch, R. Schoultz, P. Faltstrom, C. Weider Filename : draft-ietf-wnils-whois-arch-02.txt Pages : 44 Date : 01/31/1995 This document describes WHOIS++, an extension to the trivial WHOIS service described in RFC 954 to permit WHOIS-like servers to make available more structured information to the Internet. We describe an extension to the simple WHOIS data model and query protocol and a companion extensible, distributed indexing service. A number of options have also been added such as the use of multiple languages and character sets, more advanced search expressions, structured data and a number of other useful features. An optional authentication mechanism for protecting all or part of the associated WHOIS++ information database from unauthorized access is also described.

Send a message to: firstname.lastname@example.org. In the body type: "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-ietf-wnils-whois-arch-02.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@cnri.reston.va.us. Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the Internet-Draft.
