GNS Protocol Numbers#

This registry is for protocol number mappings for GNS names that are BOXed.

Some “_”-labels map to protocol numbers, but others do not. For common “_”-labels, we provide a number mapping in this registry.

Policy#

Each registry entry should contain three values: the port “Number” of the protocol, which must be above 255, the “Name” of the protocol, and a “Reference” with links to further information about the record type.

The “Name” must be unique in the entire registry. The value must be a case insensitive ASCII string and is restricted to alphanumeric characters.

Adding protocols is possible after expert review, using a first-come-first-served policy for unique “Name” allocation. Experts are responsible to ensure that the chosen “Name” is appropriate for the record type.

The current contact(s) for expert review are reachable at gns-registry@gnunet.org.
