Abstract: The cone search is the simplest of the VO protocols to implement and use. These services provide a basic research tool for data access and play an important role in the data access layer (DAL). As the first data access layer protocol used in the VO, the cone search aims to be simple so that data providers can quickly implement it as a powerful search tool. The requirements for using and publishing a cone search service, as well as required responses from the service will be described.
