Subject:  [cabfpub] Voting Begins: Ballot 224: WHOIS and RDAP

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.
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.
