Anuncio del equipo ejecutivo

Cada vez que se produce un cambio en el equipo de líderes ejecutivos de la organización de la ICANN, es importante que informemos a la comunidad en forma oportuna. Hoy quiero informarles que Cyrus Namazi, Vicepresidente Sénior de la División Global de Dominios (GDD), decidió renunciar a la organización de la ICANN con efecto inmediato.

En sus siete años con la organización de la ICANN, Cyrus acompañó el crecimiento y la madurez de la industria de nombres de dominio y apoyó a la comunidad de Internet.

Considero importante mantener la continuidad del trabajo crítico que lleva a cabo la GDD. Le solicité a Theresa Swinehart, miembro de mi equipo de suplentes y Vicepresidente Sénior de Estrategia de Múltiples Partes Interesadas e Iniciativas Estratégicas, que supervise temporariamente el trabajo de la GDD. Theresa tiene una extensa trayectoria en la organización de la ICANN y un conocimiento profundo de la industria de nombres de dominio y sus partes interesadas. Trabajará en estrecha colaboración con los suplentes de Cyrus, Karen Lentz, Directora Sénior de Investigación sobre Políticas y Servicios de Datos, y Russ Weinstein, Director Sénior de Cuentas y Servicios de Dominios Genéricos de Alto Nivel, para liderar la división y determinar el camino a seguir.

    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."
