[[ sorry for the cross post - last time, I promise! ]] Sorry for the delay in getting this out. But here's the proposed final version of the ASID working group charter. I will incorporate comments I receive before this Friday, May 27. On Friday, I'll submit the charter so we can be a real working group. -- Tim Charter Access and Synchronization of the Internet Directory (ASID) Chair(s): Tim Howes <email@example.com> Responsible AD: Erik Huizer <Erik.Huizer@SURFnet.nl> Applications Area Director(s): Erik Huizer <Erik.Huizer@SURFnet.nl> John Klensin <Klensin@infoods.unu.edu> Mailing lists: General Discussion: firstname.lastname@example.org To Subscribe: email@example.com Archive: terminator.rs.itd.umich.edu:/ietf-asid/archive Description of Working Group: There is a clear need to provide and deploy a well managed Directory Service for the Internet. A so-called White Pages Directory Service providing people and organizational information, is especially long overdue. While the ultimate goal is a general Directory Service for the Internet, this is too ambitious a goal to be tackled by a single Working Group. Therefore ASID will keep a tight focus on access and synchronization protocols for a White Pages Internet Directory Service. Other related Working Groups will be formed in the Applications area that will deal with other aspects of the Internet Directory Service. Currently there are various protocols under development in the Internet that aim to provide such a service: Internet X.500, WHOIS++, NETFIND, CSO, RWhois, etc. To allow these services to evolve to a ubiquitous Internet Directory Service, a hybrid system that allows interaction between the various different services is a requirement. The ASID working group will define, evolve, and standardize protocols, algorithms and accesss methods for Directory Service on the Internet. Similar or related work items in this area already completed or underway by other groups include the Lightweight Directory Access Protocols (LDAP and Connectionless LDAP), the User Friendly Naming (UFN) and User Friendly Searching (UFS) specifications (all developed for internet X.500), much of the World-Wide-Web-based efforts, including the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) and UR* work, the SOLO directory access and searching system, the WHOIS++ directory service, and the NETFIND directory service. The group will focus on harmonizing, evolving and developing protocols and algorithms that deal with access to and synchronization of Directory Service, both ad hoc and standards-based, with a goal of converging where possible towards a hybrid system that ties together various forms of Directory Service. Clearly, protocol-level integration is only part of the solution. But to keep this group tightly focused, harmonizing directory information and service models will be tackled by other WGs.
