Technical Study Group Publishes Draft Model for Review and Input

7 March 2019
By Ram Mohan


On behalf of the Technical Study Group on Access to Non-Public Registration Data, I am pleased to share with you the Draft Technical Model for Access to Non-Public Registration Data. This document represents the collective input of our group. We are sharing this model now to give the community time to review it prior to an engagement session on 11 March 2019 at ICANN64 in Kobe, Japan.

As noted in my last blog, at the conclusion of our February face-to-face meeting, this model is built on the Registration Data Access Protocol (RDAP). The draft model includes details on the system requirements, actor models, and recommended authentication/authorization mechanisms. When we finish our work, we will send our report to ICANN President and CEO Göran Marby, who chartered our work.

We look forward to discussing this model with you in more detail in Kobe, from 04:30-06:00 UTC on 11 March 2019 in Portopia Hall. Remote participation will be available for this session. We are also looking forward to meeting with several community groups in Kobe. If you are interested in hearing more from our group or would like to send us your input on the model, please email gdpr@icann.org.
