ICANN 宣布设立公共技术标识符 (PTI)

ICANN 于今日宣布"移交后 IANA"以其正式名称"公共技术标识符(现称为'PTI')"已将法人设立文件提交给了加利福尼亚州务卿,并获得接受。随着这份文件的提交和接受,PTI 现已正式作为一家非营利公益法人和 ICANN 的控股附属机构而存在。

PTI 的设立文件的起草反映了 IANA 管理权移交协调小组 (ICG) 提案中的建议。该提案已由 ICANN 董事会于 2016 年 3 月 10 日呈交给了美国国家电信和信息管理局 (NTIA)。PTI 的设立旨在按照与 ICANN 签署的合同执行 IANA 的域名相关职能。

PTI 的设立章程也于 2016 年 7 月 1 日公开发布征询了公众意见。在 2016 年 8 月 9 日的会议上,ICANN 董事会通过了《PTI 设立章程》,并要求 ICANN 员工推进 PTI 的设立事宜。

尽管 PTI 目前是一个法人实体,但尚未执行任何工作。PTI 在 IANA 仍与 NTIA 签有职能合同期间不会启动任何服务。PTI 只有在移交圆满完成后才会执行其 IANA 的职能。届时,PTI 才将按照与 ICANN 签署的《IANA 域名职能合同》(于 2016 年 8 月 10 日至 9 月 9 日启动公共评议期)、以及按照 ICANN 承包给该企业执行号码和协议参数服务的分包合同来执行 IANA 的职能。

为了保证 IANA 职能和整体运营程序的连贯性,ICG 的提案中要求 IANA 号码和协议参数职能的执行工作被分包给 PTI。分包协议现已草拟完成,并即将由 PTI 和 ICANN 进行签署,从而在移交之时确保协议生效。

拟定《企业设立章程》是 PTI 正式启动运营所需的一系列治理性文件中的第一份。在接下来的几周内,ICANN 将公开发布《PTI 章程》、《利益冲突政策》、《董事会行为准则》和《预期行为标准》的终稿。这些文件已经通过了公共评议期,即将呈交给 ICANN 和 PTI 的董事会供其在移交前(酌情)审批通过。

PTI 的设立过程中的各种努力都是为了执行 ICG 提案中的一个关键建议,即:成立一个新的法人实体执行 IANA 的三项职能。与此相关的实施规划工作请查看:https://www.icann.org/stewardship-implementation

Domain Name System
Internationalized Domain Name ,IDN,"IDNs are domain names that include characters used in the local representation of languages that are not written with the twenty-six letters of the basic Latin alphabet ""a-z"". An IDN can contain Latin letters with diacritical marks, as required by many European languages, or may consist of characters from non-Latin scripts such as Arabic or Chinese. Many languages also use other types of digits than the European ""0-9"". The basic Latin alphabet together with the European-Arabic digits are, for the purpose of domain names, termed ""ASCII characters"" (ASCII = American Standard Code for Information Interchange). These are also included in the broader range of ""Unicode characters"" that provides the basis for IDNs. The ""hostname rule"" requires that all domain names of the type under consideration here are stored in the DNS using only the ASCII characters listed above, with the one further addition of the hyphen ""-"". The Unicode form of an IDN therefore requires special encoding before it is entered into the DNS. The following terminology is used when distinguishing between these forms: A domain name consists of a series of ""labels"" (separated by ""dots""). The ASCII form of an IDN label is termed an ""A-label"". All operations defined in the DNS protocol use A-labels exclusively. The Unicode form, which a user expects to be displayed, is termed a ""U-label"". The difference may be illustrated with the Hindi word for ""test"" — परीका — appearing here as a U-label would (in the Devanagari script). A special form of ""ASCII compatible encoding"" (abbreviated ACE) is applied to this to produce the corresponding A-label: xn--11b5bs1di. A domain name that only includes ASCII letters, digits, and hyphens is termed an ""LDH label"". Although the definitions of A-labels and LDH-labels overlap, a name consisting exclusively of LDH labels, such as""icann.org"" is not an IDN."
