MACE has delegated responsibility for the urn:mace:ac.uk namespace to JISC. The namespace is operated on their behalf by Janet according to the policy for the management of the urn:mace:ac.uk namespace.
The eligibility rules for the namespace are the same as for the .ac.uk DNS domain, so Janet will only issue names of the forms urn:mace:ac.uk:organisation.ac.uk and urn:mace:ac.uk:project.ac.uk where the organisation or project holds the equivalent DNS domain. For sub-namespaces within an organisation or project, the top level namespace must first be delegated by Janet and the organisation to which this is delegated may then issue sub-namespaces within it.
Questions and requests for delegations with the namespace should be sent by a Janet-registered contact for your organisation, to email@example.com.
- Internet2/MACE Uniform Resource Name (URN) registry home page
- RFC 3613 defines the "urn:mace" namespace and describes the procedures and policies governing its use.
