Title : Defining and Using Global Service Attributes in SLP
Author(s) : W. Zhao, H. Schulzrinne
Filename : draft-zhao-slp-attr-00.txt
Pages : 8

This document describes a mechanism for extending the functionality
of the Service Location Protocol (SLP) via defining and using global
service attributes. A global service attribute is service type
independent. It is used for describing a common service property or
for a service management purpose. Its name begins with the 'service-'
prefix. It is defined using an attribute template, and can be
imported into any service template. We give examples of three global
service attributes: service-id, service-transport-protocol, and
service-replication-id. We also show how to use global service
attributes to support replicated server groups, multiple access
protocols, multiple transport protocols, and URL changes.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org 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.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
