Title : ZONEPREP - Zone Preparations for IDN
Author(s) : E. Chung
Filename : draft-chung-idnop-zoneprep-00.txt
Pages : 12
Date : 2003-4-1
Zoneprep intends to provide a framework for applying Charprep
variants to zone file management. More specifically, Charprep
profiles are used to generate a set of perceptually equivalent
domains from a given primary domain, Zoneprep policy profiles are
used to determine which among the generated set of Charprep variants
to include into the DNS zone file.
This document does NOT provide any specific Zoneprep policy profiles,
instead it describes a framework for Zone Administrators (e.g.
registries) to consider when implementing IDN. More importantly, to
consider the policy on reserving and publishing variants from the
given primary domain to the DNS zone files.
This framework also leads into the discussion of provisioning
protocol for IDN, more importantly for a server to announce its
policies on reserved variants and zone variants, as well as for the
client to further manage the IDN. This document will NOT describe
extensively this issue, for further discussion please refer to [EPP-
I], which incorporates this framework into EPP.

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.
