Registration Data Access Protocol (RDAP)

In January 2016, Verisign Labs launched an experimental implementation of the Registration Data Access Protocol (RDAP), a protocol that was designed to address the deficiencies of WHOIS. RDAP provides an opportunity for the domain name ecosystem to enable Registration Data Directory Services (RDDS) without the need to replicate data and address local data privacy requirements. We wrote a white paper, Registration Data Access Protocol (RDAP) Implementation Experiments at Verisign, which describes our implementation and concludes that the approach improves the quality and provenance of domain registration data while protecting personal privacy.
