Diálogo sobre Medio Oriente en Pekín

Si bien esta semana nos reunimos en el Pacífico Asiático, en el curso de los últimos tres meses continuamos trabajando en la estrategia trienal de participación para Medio Oriente. El lunes tuve el honor de coordinar una sesión de trabajo acerca el borrador del documento sobre la estrategia con aproximadamente 60 miembros de la comunidad de la ICANN. En la estrategia se identifican las metas clave para Medio Oriente en relación con la seguridad y estabilidad del DNS, la industria de los nombres de dominio y el ecosistema de gobernanza de Internet.

El desarrollo de esta estrategia ha sido verdaderamente impulsado por la comunidad y desde las bases, y su implementación se llevará a cabo en una total asociación con la comunidad de Internet regional e internacional. Muchas organizaciones, como la Sociedad de Internet, los Registros Regionales de Internet, los administradores de ccTLD, y demás organismos, ya están en marcha en esta área, y nuestros esfuerzos complementan a los suyos.

Invitamos al público a presentar sus comentarios sobre la estrategia antes del 19 de abril; si aún no han presentado sus comentarios, los invito a que lo hagan. Tenemos planeado publicar el documento final en mayo, y esperamos trabajar con la comunidad en la implementación del plan.

    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."
