Information technology -- Metadata Registries Interoperability and Bindings (MDR-IB) -- Part 4: Protocol bindings


The ISO/IEC 20944 series of International Standards provides the bindings and their interoperability for metadata registries, such as those specified in the ISO/IEC 11179 series of International Standards. ISO/IEC 20944-4:2013 contains provisions that are common to protocol bindings and the protocol bindings themselves. The protocol bindings have commonality in their conceptualization of the services provided. Common features include:

  • common data transfer semantics;
  • harmonized session services for connection-oriented and connection-less protocols.

Bindings for HTTP and WebDAV protocols are provided.
