Abstract

   This document describes the IANA's allocation of a block of Diameter
   Command Codes for the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP)
   Release 5.  This document does not pass judgment on the usage of
   these command codes.  Further more, these command codes are for use
   for Release 5.  For future releases, these codes cannot be reused,
   but must be allocated according to the Diameter Base specification.

Introduction The Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) is defining the Internet Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) as part of their Release 5 architecture. As part of this architecture, they have defined a Diameter application [29.229] and [29.329] which requires the use of new Diameter Command Codes [DIAM]. 1.1. Abbreviations 3GPP Third Generation Partnership Project IANA Internet Assigned Name Authority IMS Internet Multimedia Subsystem 2. Command Code Allocation The IANA has allocated Diameter Command Codes 300 through 313, for use in 3GPP Release 5. The protocols defined by these command codes have not been carefully reviewed by the IETF community and are not considered to be general mechanisms appropriate for broad usage. More work is needed to develop general mechanisms and may become a work item of an IETF Working Group. These command codes are intended to be used for 3GPP Release 5 only [29.228], [29.229]. Future 3GPP releases are expected to make use of alternate mechanisms. Command codes for 3GPP Release 6 are expected to be allocated from the standard command space, with IETF documentation. The current intent as agreed with 3GPP is to develop a standards track application addressing the needs of AAA for SIP/SDP and encompassing the requirements of the cellular community. 3. Security Considerations This document is not known to affect the security of the Internet. 4. Intellectual Property Statement The IETF takes no position regarding the validity or scope of any intellectual property or other rights that might be claimed to pertain to the implementation or use of the technology described in this document or the extent to which any license under such rights might or might not be available; neither does it represent that it has made any effort to identify any such rights. Information on the IETF's procedures with respect to rights in standards-track and standards-related documentation can be found in BCP-11. Copies of claims of rights made available for publication and any assurances of licenses to be made available, or the result of an attempt made to obtain a general license or permission for the use of such proprietary rights by implementors or users of this specification can be obtained from the IETF Secretariat. The IETF invites any interested party to bring to its attention any copyrights, patents or patent applications, or other proprietary rights, which may cover technology that may be required to practice this standard.
