A new.net for IDNs

This is probably not new, but it's the first I've heard of it.

Universal-names dot com is selling domain names with native script TLDs. Their current offerings include:

Japanese .会社 .ネット .ゲーム
Korean .회사 .통신 .기관
Arabic ش. ك. م.
Hebrew קום. נט. ארג.
Cyrillic .ком .нет .орг

Nice idea, maybe ICANN should think about this

ICANN knows exactly what the hell they are doing. They are a US Gov controlled organization, and they and MS are both clearly stalling IDNs for as long as they can while the NSA gets it's IDN monitoring systems coded and tested, as well as training their analysts.

You got a link to that information or news source?

Seriously, just consider it for a little while. NSA/DHS have been data mining and tracking websites for suspected terrorist activity for a long time. IDN URLs would throw a *major* monkey wrench into their tooling. It's very easy for them to serve Twoney a "national security letter" or similar and put him under NDA. Call me a conspiracy theorist, but I am starting to believe that this is the case.

Re: A new.net for IDNs

I think commercial interests drive this more than security considerations.

Would anyone want to empower the competition? No.

Its a interesting theory, and I am sure with a good basis for it. Would no doubt make a great high tech spy novel.

Yes, apart from the fact he is from down under!

Furthermore, Microsoft need no encouragement to be greedy and incompetent.

By the way, has anyone else noticed that since they have introduced this new transparency, there is very little information actually emerging from the meetings. Is this a conspiracy?

That makes it even easier. Australia is right in the USA defense agencies' (as well as Microsoft's) back pocket. The US finds it very easy to implement their policy in Australia, this isn't much of a secret.

Re: A new.net for IDNs

2006 article, which nicely points up the scope and size of the problem at hand, and they are just referring to phone communications.
I think the various international government agencies worldwide hope they give the impression they are watching and waiting...

QUOTE "The controversy over the NSA's covert program of collecting data on millions of phones calls placed by normal citizens begs the question of how well the agency will actually be able to mine the vast quantities of information it is amassing. Although the NSA is not revealing any details about its databases or the technologies that it is using to maintain and search them, the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) reports that AT&T's Daytona call detail record (CDR) database, which was reportedly made accessible to the NSA, exceeds 312 TB. Assuming that figure is accurate and that Verizon and BellSouth provided access to databases of similar sizes, the NSA could have more than 900 TB of data on its hands, requiring massive storage capacity, intense computing power, and sophisticated analytical software. Access to the bulk of the database in real time is critical for effective data mining, though some believe the NSA is frozen out of much of its own information by virtue of its sheer size. "My impression--strictly a professional guess--is that at least 75 percent of what NSA 'knows' is...offline and not accessible," said Robert Steele, CEO of OSS.net. "You cannot do good pattern analysis, including historical comparisons, without massive online storage."

SGI has begun developing computers with terabyte-scale active memories, the largest containing 13 TB, which is not enough memory to handle even 1.5 percent of the three CDR databases put together. Moreover, a computer's capacity for memory space is limited by its amount of address bits on chips, according to SGI's Bill Mannel. "Some of our customers who already have big-memory databases are looking for something beyond [what they have], but they have power and footprint problems," Mannel said, adding that the storage architecture must be overhauled to incorporate enough RAM to access the entire database.
