ITU-T and ICANN to co-host workshop on .int TLD
Reaffirming their respective responsibilities, ICANN and the ITU-T look forward to co-hosting the upcoming workshop to develop recommendations on the management of the .int TLD. The workshop will be held in Geneva on 15-16 September.
ICANN is responsible for coordinating the assignment of the global Internet’s unique identifiers, including Internet domain names, IP address numbers, and protocol parameter and port numbers. In addition, ICANN oversees the operation of the Internet's root server system. As part of ICANN’s role through the IANA function is in the coordination of the domain name system, ICANN oversees the administration of the .int TLD.
The ITU-T, with its mission to ensure an efficient and on-time production of high quality standards covering all fields of telecommunications, is hosting the workshop pursuant to the ITU Resolution 102, through which the ITU is to work with appropriate bodies to develop a recommendation to clarify the management of the domain .int.
ICANN will contribute to this workshop through its experiences in the administration of the .int domain.
ICANN and the ITU look forward to a fruitful discussion, and any outcomes that may further benefit the ongoing successful management of the .int TLD.
