DNS SRV (RFC 2782) Service Types


To add your protocol to this list, send email to: giving:

1. Short name of protocol, fourteen characters maximum, conforming to normal DNS host name rules: Only
lower-case letters, digits, and hyphens; must begin and end with lower-case letter or digit.
2. Longer, descriptive name of protocol.
3. Name and email address of responsible person.
4. URL giving description of protocol. (Or statement that the protocol is proprietary.)
5. Primary Transport Protocol. ("_udp" or "_tcp", only needed for historical reasons, to determine correct SRV service
type)
6. List of defined TXT record keys (see draft-cheshire-dnsext-dns-sd.txt, Section 6) for this service or URL reference to
document describing defined keys.

The primary historical list of DNS SRV (RFC 2782) service type names for existing protocols with well-known port
numbers is given in the IANA list of assigned port names and numbers. However, that list does not include any
information about the defined DNS-SD TXT keys, and that list includes only protocols that have fixed well-known port
numbers, which is unfortunate, because one of the big benefits of DNS SRV is that it obviates the need for fixed port
numbers in most cases.

For applications that need a fixed well-known port number, you should list your protocol in both places. When you fill
out the IANA "Application for User (Registered) Port Number" form to get a registered port number for your application
protocol, the last section of that form is the space for the fourteen-character service protocol name, used by SRV records
and DNS-SD.

For applications that do not need a fixed well-known port number, you should list your protocol only on this DNS SRV
list. Before you send your email, check the IANA list of assigned port names and numbers to make sure that your chosen
protocol name is not already in use for a different protocol.

As soon as the correct IANA procedures are in place and formalized, the two lists will be re-unified and managed by
IANA.

Unless explicitly specified otherwise, all protocols are assumed to be "_protoname._tcp", not "_protoname._udp". Protocols
that can run over either UDP or TCP (e.g. NFS) are usually advertised using whichever transport is considered the 'normal'
or 'primary' mode of operation (and clients should attempt communication with the service using either or both transports,
as appropriate for the client). Protocols that run only over UDP should of course advertise as "_protoname._udp".

guid Special service type for resolving by GUID (Globally Unique Identifier)
Defined TXT keys: Varies; Depends on type of service being offered/resolved
Although DNS-SD does not recommend or advocate using GUIDs as the primary name
of an offered service (why not?), it does support use of GUIDs as service names
where developers want to use them that way.
Typically users do not browse for GUIDs. They are not user-friendly and not very
informative. Typically, the service is advertised as usual, using a user-friendly
name. One of the TXT record attributes is a GUID for the service instance.
Once the user has browsed and chosen the desired service instance via its user-friendly
name, the service is resolved, the TXT record is retrieved, and the GUID is stored.
A given network service instance is therefore being advertised two ways, for example:
<User-Friendly-Name>._ptp._tcp.local
<GUID>._guid._tcp.local
On subsequent accesses to the service, the GUID-based name is resolved, and that
particular service instance is discovered, even if the user has subsequently
changed the user-friendly name to something else.
Note: Although each different logical service type needs to have its own different
DNS-SD service type, all GUID-based names use the same pseudo-type: "_guid._tcp".
There is no possibility of name conflict because (by definition) GUIDs are globally unique.

http World Wide Web HTML-over-HTTP


Tim Berners-Lee <timbl at W3.org>
Protocol description: RFC 2616
Defined TXT keys: u=<username> p=<password> path=<path to document>
(see txtrecords.html#http)
NOTE: The meaning of this service type, though called just "http", actually
denotes something more precise than just "any data transported using HTTP".
The DNS-SD service type "http" should only be used to advertise content that:
* is served over HTTP,
* can be displayed by "typical" web browser client software, and
* is intented primarily to be viewed by a human user.
Of course, the definition of "typical web browser" is subjective, and may
change over time, but for practical purposes the DNS-SD service type "http"
can be understood as meaning "human-readable HTML content served over HTTP".
In some cases other widely-supported content types may also be appropriate,
such as plain text over HTTP, or JPEG image over HTTP.
Content types not intented primarily for viewing by a human user, or not
widely-supported in web browsing clients, should not be advertised as
DNS-SD service type "http", even if they do happen to be transported over HTTP.
Such types should be advertised as their own logical service type with their
own DNS-SD service type, for example, XUL (XML User Interface Language)
transported over HTTP is advertised explicitly as DNS-SD service type "xul-http".

https HTTP over SSL/TLS

DNS SRV (RFC 2 782 ) Service Types http://www.dns-sd.org/ServiceTypes.htm l

Tim Berners-Lee <timbl at W3.org>


Protocol description: RFC 2616
NOTE: Web browsers like Safari and Internet Explorer (with the Bonjour for Windows plugin)
DO NOT browse for DNS-SD service type "_https._tcp" in addition to browsing for "_http._tcp".
This is a conscious decision to reduce proliferation of service types, to help keep
DNS-SD efficient on the network. Today, if a user types http://www.mybank.com/ into their
web browser, the web server automatically redirects the user to https://www.mybank.com/.
Rather than having an entirely different DNS-SD service type for https, we recommend
using the same redirection mechanism: advertise a plain "http" service, which consists
of nothing except an HTTP redirection to the desired "https" URL.
Work is currently being done on adding mechanisms to HTTP and TLS to allow the server
to tell the client that it needs to activate TLS on the current connection before
proceeding. If this becomes widely adopted, it further justifies the decision to
not create a separate DNS-SD service type "_https._tcp", because security becomes
just another one of the things that is negotiated on a per-connection basis (like
content-type negotiation today) rather than being an entirely separate thing.

jini Jini Service Discovery


Daniel Steinberg <daniel at oreilly.com>
Protocol description: Convention giving a deterministic programmatic mapping
between Jini service interface names and subtypes of the DNS-SD service
meta-type "_jini._tcp". For example, a client wishing to discover objects
that implement the "com.oreilly.ExampleService" interface would broswse for
the DNS-SD service subtype "ExampleService.oreilly.com._sub._jini._tcp".
(Note: Using Apple's Bonjour programming API, service subtypes
like this are expressed as a comma-separated list following
main type, e.g. "_jini._tcp,ExampleService.oreilly.com".
This allows an object that implements several interfaces to specify
all of those interfaces in a list when it registers its service.
When browsing for services, at most a single subtype is allowed.)

Note: Registration updated May 2007. Was formerly listed as "iChat AV" (Apple's IM client
for Mac OS X) with TXT keys: txtvers, port.p2pj, phsh, vc, 1st, AIM, msg, status, last
When first shipped in Mac OS X 10.2, iChat's peer-to-peer messaging protocol was
created to solve the problem of serverless messaging between peers on the same link.
However, there is nothing inherent in the protocol that limits it to being only link-local;
it was simply an artifact of iChat in Mac OS X 10.2 using link-local Multicast DNS to
discover peers. With the advent of Wide-Area DNS-SD, it is also possible to use iChat's
peer-to-peer messaging between machines on different links.
