ICANN Opens Public Comment on A Revised Version of IDN Guidelines Draft

Shall we participate and make some comments? It could be worthwhile to draft a letter perhaps?

Draft Revised IDN Guidelines: Public Comment Period

20 September 2005

ICANN has opened a 30-day public comment period on a draft revised version of the Guidelines for the Implementation of Internationalized Domain Names ("IDN Guidelines"). This draft reflects the experiences of the IDN registries in the implementation of Version 1.0 of the guidelines. Particular attention has been paid to concerns that have arisen about the deceptive use of visually confusable characters from different scripts in individual IDN labels.

Analysis concerning such usage has been ongoing for several months and culminated when the IDN registries met during the ICANN meeting in Luxembourg. Some of the results from this meeting and from the Luxembourg IDN workshop have been reflected in the draft revised IDN Guidelines. This includes:


The registries will follow established authoritative language tables when such exist.
The registries will not permit the co-mingling of scripts in a domain label when no language table exists.
The successor document to the current guidelines must maximize the ability of a registry to support IDN in all regards where it is reasonably needed, and must minimize the ability for the abuse of IDN for deceptive purposes.
Policies based on script are needed in addition to those based solely on language, and developing script-based policies should be an immediate focus of action.

Following the Luxembourg ICANN meeting, a working group of registries with IDN experience was formed to work on a revision of the guidelines, to be put forth for public comment. The working group includes the following members:


gTLD Registry Constituency Representatives:
Cary Karp, MuseDoma
Pat Kane, VeriSign
Ram Mohan, Afilias
ccNSO Representatives:
Hiro Hotta, JPRS
Mohammed EL Bashir, .sd Registry
ICANN Staff:
Tina Dam

The revised version is now posted for public comments, and will subsequently be modified in accordance with commentary received. A final draft of version 2.0 will then be submitted to the ICANN Board for endorsement.

The IDN Guidelines v.1.0 can be found here.

The draft IDN Guidelines v.2.0 can be found here. Comments must be submitted by 19 October 2005, 23:00 UTC.

Re: ICANN Opens Public Comment on A Revised Version of IDN Guidelines Draft

Thanks for that Rolf,

I think all they are trying to do is limit the scope for domains likely to be used for Phishing.
Complexed issued, but basically should not adversely affect our interests. I certainly have not registered mixed scripts. except in Japanese where they use several in same sentence.

The big one that we are all waiting for is final draft on implementation of Top Level on IDNs, i.e. how they are going to implement the translaton of the dot com and the dot net, or indeed even the dot jp and dot cn. This seems to be taking shape, but some commitment to actually do it would be very welcome!

Best Regards
Dave Wrixon
