The Request for Information is intended to educate ICANN organization and its contract parties on various tools in the marketplace that support physical address validation including geographic coverage, service availability and response times. The findings will assist with education and awareness of possible solutions that will be able to support our objectives to protect registrants and support greater accuracy of WHOIS information.
