urn:geant Registry

GÉANT administers the urn:geant Uniform Resource Name (URN) namespace, supporting the assignment of unique, global, persistent names to various kinds of resources by the GÉANT community and its delegates. This page lists registrations in this namespace.

Requests for Namespaces and Requirements

A request for a urn:geant namespace can be issued by contacting aai-is@lists.geant.org.   Namespaces are delegated according to the requirements set out in RFC4926.   GÉANT notes this RFC is out of date regarding contact information and company name and will be ensuring the namespace is updated as soon as possible. 

GÉANT URI NameSpace

The GÉANT URI NameSpace http://www.geant.net/uri/ is an alternative to the urn:geant NameSpace when there is a need to have a well known URL that is accessible with descriptive information on its purpose.

Currently the URI NameSpace includes:
