Network Working Group M. Mealling Request for Comments: 3061 Verisign Category: Informational February 2001 Obsoletes: 3001 A URN Namespace of Object Identifiers Status of this Memo This memo provides information for the Internet community. It does not specify an Internet standard of any kind. Distribution of this memo is unlimited. Copyright Notice Copyright (C) The Internet Society (2001). All Rights Reserved. Abstract This document describes a Uniform Resource Name (URN) namespace that contains Object Identifiers (OIDs). It obsoletes RFC 3001. 1. Introduction An Object Identifier is a tree of nodes where each node is simply a sequence of digits. The rules roughly state that once an entity is assigned a node in the Object Identifier (OID) tree, it has sole discretion to further subdelegate sub-trees off of that node. Some examples of OIDs include: o 1.3.6.1 - the Internet OID o 1.3.6.1.4.1 - IANA-assigned company OIDs, used for private MIBs and such things o 1.3.6.1.2.1.27 - The Applications MIB o 0.9.2342.19200300.100.4 - Object ID's used in the directory pilot project to identify X.500 Object Classes. Mostly defined in RFC 1274. This document specifies the "oid" URN namespace [2]. This namespace is for encoding an Object Identifier as specified in ASN.1 [3] as a URI. RFC 3001 [1] is obsoleted by this specification. The namespace specification is for a formal namespace. Mealling Informational [Page 1]
