||ICANN Staff is seeking input on the Preliminary Issue Report on the Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy Part C [PDF, 572 KB].
The Preliminary Issue Report [PDF, 572 KB] addresses the following three issues:
"Change of Control" function, including an investigation of how this function is currently achieved, if there are any applicable models in the country-code name space that can be used as a best practice for the gTLD space, and any associated security concerns. It should also include a review of locking procedures, as described in Reasons for Denial #8 and #9, with an aim to balance legitimate transfer activity and security.
Whether provisions on time-limiting Form Of Authorization (FOA)s should be implemented to avoid fraudulent transfers out. For example, if a Gaining Registrar sends and receives an FOA back from a transfer contact, but the name is locked, the registrar may hold the FOA pending adjustment to the domain name status, during which time the registrant or other registration information may have changed.
Whether the process could be streamlined by a requirement that registries use IANA IDs for registrars rather than proprietary IDs
||The Preliminary Issue Report will be updated to reflect community feedback submitted through this forum. A Final Issue Report will then be presented to the Generic Names Supporting Organization (GNSO) Council for its consideration.
