Update on WHOIS-Related Initiatives

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This high interest topic session is proposed by the GAC Public Safety Working Group (PSWG).
There are currently several substantial Whois-related initiatives underway across ICANN and its Community: the Next Generation Registration Directory Services GNSO Policy Development Process, the implementation of the Proxy & Privacy Services Accreditation GNSO Policy Recommendations, as well as other activities such as the development of the Whois Accuracy Reporting System or the Implementation Advisory Group on the Whois Conflict Procedure with Local Laws.
Currently, the PSWG is involved in several of these Whois-related initiatives that may have Public Policy and Public Safety implications. Through its contributions in these activities the PSWG has been developing positions and a body knowledge that could benefit the larger ICANN Community.
To ensure an interactive and productive session, the PSWG is proposing a focus on accountability of domain registration. The PSWG will introduce the challenges and invite an update on the various ongoing initiatives from this perspective, for discussion with the ICANN community.
Goals and expected outcomes:
• Update of the ICANN Community and its SO/ACs on objectives, scope, timeline, progress and achievements of relevant initiatives, with a specific focus on accountability of domain registration
• Presentation of the body of knowledge related to accountability of domain registration, documented in work products or discussions to date, including that of the PSWG
• Sharing of views on the challenges of accountability of domain registration
