6th Registration Operations Workshop (ROW), Madrid, 12 May 2017

The Registration Operations Workshop (ROW) was conceived as an informal industry conference aimed at providing a forum for discussing the technical aspects of registration operations in the Domain Name System (DNS).

The sixth ROW will be held in Madrid, Spain, on Friday, 12 May 2017, from 13:30 to 17:30 CEST (15:30 – 19:30 UTC). It will commence shortly after the Identifier Health Technology Initiative workshop, and prior to OARC 26. All events will be held at Hotel NH Collection Madrid Eurobuilding in Madrid. The current ROW agenda is as follows:

  • RDAP extension proposals for federated authentication, object tagging, and regular expression searching
  • RDAP implementation in the gTLD space
  • Impact of ICANN SLA monitoring on gTLD WHOIS services
  • Contact object management by registrars
  • Syncing delegation information from DNS operator
  • Extending RDAP query parameters to enable result sorting and paging
  • RDAP test suite

Speakers include individuals from CentralNic, CloudFlare, ICANN, IIT-CNR, Verisign and Viagénie. Attendance to the workshop is free, but registration required.

The ROW Series workshops are sponsored by Verisign and ICANN.

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"""" is not an IDN."
