阿迪尔•阿科普罗根(Adiel Akplogan)加入ICANN担任技术合作副总裁

本职务旨在加强技术社群之间的联系

互联网技术资深专家阿迪尔•阿科普罗根(Adiel Akplogan)现加入ICANN担任新设立的技术合作副总裁一职。

此前,阿科普罗根先生自2004年起一直担任非洲互联网号码资源注册机构非洲网络信息中心(AfriNIC)的首席执行官。

"我非常高兴地看到阿迪尔能够到ICANN任职。"负责全球利益相关方合作的总裁特别顾问莎莉•科斯特顿(Sally Costerton)指出。"他是互联网社群中颇受尊敬的积极贡献人,其丰富的领导经验将促进ICANN深入并拓展在技术社群中的长期参与,这是至关重要的。"

阿科普罗根是西非地区的互联网发展开创人之一,在设立并管理本地区首个私营互联网服务提供商CAFENet的过程中起着关键的作用。

"我希望能够帮助ICANN实现其所预期的运营卓越性。"阿迪尔指出。"我们都将努力维护并改善全球沟通和信息系统,该系统将从多个层面构建我们的未来。"

阿科普罗根在这一新的职务中将帮助ICANN促进技术合作和外展。鉴于他曾帮助创建非洲多家技术协调机构,具体包括:非洲网络运营商团体(AfNOG)、非洲ccTLD经理协会(AfTLD)、AfricaCERT和非洲互联网峰会(AIS)等,因此他将为非洲大陆上的信息和通信技术社群建立有益联系。

阿科普罗根现居住在加拿大蒙特利尔,并将于3月1日走马上任。

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."
