El Grupo de Expertos Públicos en Responsabilidad y Gobernanza inicia sus debates

Esta página está disponible en:

Tal como se anunciara el 19 de agosto de 2014, fueron seleccionados los miembros del Grupo de Expertos Públicos en Responsabilidad y Gobernanza. El grupo será responsable de seleccionar un máximo de siete asesores del Grupo de Coordinación de Responsabilidad y Gobernanza de la ICANN para garantizar la incorporación de las mejores prácticas provenientes de la comunidad global en su conjunto.

Los miembros del grupo han comenzado sus primeros debates, y realizarán su primera teleconferencia el 26 de agosto a los efectos de determinar su metodología de trabajo. La grabación de audio de la teleconferencia del Grupo de Expertos Públicos estará disponible en el espacio Wiki de la comunidad con posterioridad a la llamada.

La comunidad también puede seguir las actividades del Grupo de Expertos Públicos mediante su lista pública de correo electrónico.

La información referida al Grupo de Expertos Públicos y al proceso de responsabilidad y gobernanza de la ICANN se encuentra disponible en el espacio Wiki de la comunidad.

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."
