Subject: RE: URN's as ID's
David Take a look at the URN spec (RFC 2611). Essentially the URN allows to specify and register your own structure for a name. This means that a company could specify a structure that allows a name at lower than the company level. For example: "urn:example.com:division:AB123" David -----Original Message----- From: David RR Webber [mailto:Gnosis_@compuserve.com] Sent: Wednesday, August 16, 2000 1:19 PM To: David Burdett; ebxml transport; Marty Sachs Subject: URN's as ID's Dave, You suggested IETF is using URN's - at their level of sever-server granularity that's ok. Deleted your message then realized that won;t work for us though! If I'm a division within a company - I have my whole own accounting process - but our URN is the companies main site.... And similar situations. If I'm a AOL user - your system sees one of AOL's proxy URN's - nothing to do with who I really am. We need to have assigned ID's. DW.
