Public Comment: Roadmap to a New Domain Name Registration Data Access
Protocol (WHOIS)****

18 February 2012****

ICANN is pleased to announce the posting of the draft
roadmap<http://www.icann.org/en/committees/security/sac051-draft-roadmap-18feb12-en.pdf>[PDF,
214 KB] to implement ICANN's Security and Stability Advisory
Committee's* Report on Domain Name WHOIS Terminology and Structure* (SAC
051). To make or view comments click

The SSAC report specifically targets, among other things, the
"internationalization" of the WHOIS protocol, reflecting concern about the
inability of the current WHOIS protocol to consistently handle non-ASCII
data. Additionally, SAC 051 recommends terminology to be used to clarify
discussions where traditionally the terms Whois or WHOIS have been used.****

This roadmap explores the coordination of the technical and policy
discussions necessary to implement the recommendations outlined in SAC 051:
*SSAC Report on Domain Name WHOIS Terminology and Structure.*****

As requested by the Board resolution, ICANN posts this draft Roadmap for
community consultation, requesting community input on the scope, timing,
utility, challenges, and ways to overcome those challenges that should also
be considered.****

Staff will be conducting a public workshop on the draft
roadmap<http://www.icann.org/en/committees/security/sac051-draft-roadmap-18feb12-en.pdf>[PDF,
214 KB] at ICANN's meeting in Costa Rica as an additional means of
consulting with experts and the community. In order to allow extensive time
for community dialogue and comment, it is envisioned to have two public
comment periods allowing the draft Roadmap to evolve with the input
received. Following that, the report will be finalized for Board and
community action by the Prague ICANN meeting in June 2012.****
