Registration Data Access Protocol (RDAP)

In January 2016, Verisign Labs launched an experimental implementation of the RDAP, a protocol designed to address the deficiencies of WHOIS. RDAP provides an opportunity for the domain name ecosystem to enable Registration Data Directory Services (RDDS) without the need to replicate data, while also addressing local data privacy requirements. Verisign Labs wrote a white paper, Registration Data Access Protocol (RDAP) Implementation Experiments at Verisign, which described our implementation and concluded that the approach would improve the quality and provenance of domain name registration data while protecting personal privacy.
