Generic Allocation * ETSI URN Namespace

ETSI URN Namespace

ETSI maintains a namespace registry based on URNs in support of the specifications produced by ETSI. The ETSI registry allocates these URNs based upon a reserved NID ('etsi'). See RFCXXXX for the document which reserved this NID.

All URNs in the ETSI URN namespace will have the following structure:
                                                          urn:etsi:<etsi-urn>


The <etsi-urn> will have the following structure:

                                                  <NSS-Root>:<NSS-restoftree>

where <NSS-Root> are the nodes allocated under ETSI URN namespace as defined in Table 1 and <NSS-restoftree> is the rest of tree that has one or more strings each separated with a colon ":"

Procedure for requesting an <etsi-urn> under ETSI URN namespace

Applications for new <etsi-urn>, using one of the NSS-Roots (excluding experimental) specified in table 1 shall be made via email to pnns@etsi.org.
 
The application will be reviewed by the appropriate group in ETSI.

URNs within experimental is for those modules that are not expected to be used in any published work. So, there is no need to submit a request for such URNs. This document will not capture any URNs under experimental.

Application Details
Applications for an URN should be made in the context of an approved ETSI Technical Committee Work Item. The request can happen at any time during the life of the WI. The application should include the following:
• Approved Work Item number
• Namespace Specific String Root
• a brief description of its functionality;
• the name and email address of the person making the application; and
• any supplementary information considered necessary to support the application.

When a URN application implies the creation of a new node under ETSI URN namespace, then the application should include the following:
• Approved Work Item number
• New node name(s) to be created
• a brief description of the node and the possible sub-nodes under this node;
• a brief description of its functionality;
• the name and email address of the person making the application; and,

• any supplementary information considered necessary to support the application.

 

Table 1. NSS-Roots

Structure NSS-Root urn:NID:NSS-Root Type Comments
 yang-nss  "yang"  urn:etsi:yang  string Branch of tree. This value is used when purpose is YANG
 experimental-nss  "example"  urn:etsi:example  string Branch of tree. For experimental use

 

where:

string = (ALPHA)0*(ALPHANUMERIC/-/_)

i.e. a string starts with an alphabet (a-z, A-Z) and has 0 or more mix alphanumeric (a-zA-Z0-9) or hyphen or underscore.
