Ballot 224: WHOIS and RDAP

Purpose of Ballot: The Registry Data Access Protocol (RDAP) is the
successor to WHOIS, and this ballot adds explicit support for RDAP to the
BRs by adding a definition of "WHOIS". The new definition permits the use
of the registry or registrar's web interface, and requires WHOIS
information to be retrieved directly from the registrar or registry of the
domain name.

The following motion has been proposed by Wayne Thayer of Mozilla and
endorsed by Tim Hollebeek of DigiCert and Adriano Santoni of Actalis.

— MOTION BEGINS –
This ballot modifies the “Baseline Requirements for the Issuance and
Management of Publicly-Trusted Certificates” as follows, based upon Version
1.5.7:

In section 1.6.1, add the following definition:

WHOIS: information retrieved directly from the Domain Name Registrar or
registry operator via the protocol defined in RFC 3912, the Registry Data
Access Protocol defined in RFC 7482, or an HTTPS website.

In section 1.6.3, add the following references:

RFC3912, Request for Comments: 3912, WHOIS Protocol Specification, Daigle,
September 2004.

RFC7482, Request for Comments: 7482, Registration Data Access Protocol
(RDAP) Query Format, Newton, et al, March 2015.
