Description of Working Group

The RWhois Operational Development Working Group will be a forum for coordinating the deployment, engineering and operation of the RWhois protocol to replace the current centralized whois model. The minimum attribute set will be defined to ensure that all delegated registries maintain the required information. Required user authentication will be defined to allow remote registration with RWhois servers. Operational procedures will be established to ensure that all delegated servers conform to a set of minimum standards. If necessary the RWhois protocol specification will be updated to reflect changes in requirments identifed during the working group tenure.
