Cross-Community Discussion on Next-Generation gTLD Registration Directory Services (RDS) Policy Requirements

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 during this session. The session will include a brief overview of the questions now being addressed by this WG, and the progress of the WG in answering those questions. However, most of the agenda will include an interactive dialogue between the WG members and the broader community on the WG's initial key concepts for users/purposes, data elements, privacy, and access to gTLD registration data, specifically for a 'minimum public data set.' The WG is continuing to deliberate on key concepts and possible requirements for a 'minimum public data set' and plans to expand to other data elements soon.
