First Russian Internet Governance Forum

Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs)

The Internet was initially created for communication in English, however quite quickly it turned into a global means of communication with the number of non-English-speaking users growing annually. Limitations of the Internet infrastructure in terms of multilingual capability may happen to be one of the primary factors that impede the development of the global net in the future. The technical community organized under the Internet Design Working Group has come up with a technological solution for multilingual domain names (IDN) which permits the use of other script systems (for instance, Chinese, Arabic, Cyrillic alphabet) in their names along with the Roman alphabet. Presently, Russia has filed a request with ICANN for the first Cyrillic domain in the Russian Federation. The history of launching the first Cyrillic domain in Russia, the issues of the business community cooperation to create it, the fist lessons and prospects – all these topics will be discussed by the section participants.

Re: First Russian Internet Governance Forum

Internetworking via tcpIP was invented / directed by DARPA via UCLA et al, and NASA and DOD.

It was designed by DOD requirements for military computers to have redundant peers for strategic and tactical military communications of the US Military.

ASCII was a mutual agreement between experts in DARPA and several universities.

Language requirements for NATO allies were addressed with 3rd party look up tables.

The organizers want to imply that they, as elite English speakers, were also part of it.
