GNSO - new gTLD Registration Directory Services (RDS) to replace WHOIS Policy Development Process Working Group F2F Meeting

Feedback form is now closed.
On 26 May, 2015, the ICANN Board reaffirmed its 2012 request for a Board-initiated PDP to define the purpose of collecting, maintaining and providing access to gTLD registration data, and to consider safeguards for protecting data, using the recommendations in the EWG’s Final Report as an input to, and, if appropriate, as the foundation for a new gTLD policy. Accordingly, the GNSO Next-Generation gTLD RDS PDP Working Group is currently working through phase 1 of the Board-requested PDP, using the Framework’s 3-phase process to (1) establish gTLD registration data requirements to determine if and why a next-generation RDS is needed, (2) design policies that detail functions that must be provided by a next-generation RDS to support those requirements, and (3) provide guidance for how a next-generation RDS should implement those policies, coexisting with and eventually replacing WHOIS. The purpose of this cross-community session is to obtain community feedback on key concepts related to the purposes of gTLD registration data and directory services, data elements required by those purposes, and related data protection and privacy requirements, and access requirements. The WG is currently deliberating on these concepts and hopes to solicit community feedback on its rough consensus agreements to date at ICANN59.
This session will be led by RDS PDP WG chair Chuck Gomes, supported by vice chairs David Cake, Susan Kawaguchi, and Michele Neylon and by ICANN Policy Staff members Marika Konings, Lisa Phifer, and Amr Elsadr. During this session, the WG will focus on making progress on near-term tasks outlined in the WG's work plan (see https://community.icann.org/x/oIxlAw). Specifically, the WG plans to continue its deliberation on key concepts for users/purposes, data elements, privacy and access to gTLD registration data. This meeting will be open to WG members, WG observers and guests. For further information about this PDP, please see https://community.icann.org/x/rjJ-Ag
