La IANA en transición: actualización

Recibimos una respuesta abrumadora a nuestra convocatoria para aportar comentarios en el diseño de un proceso impulsado por la comunidad hacia el logro de la transición de la administración de las funciones de la IANA de la Administración Nacional de Telecomunicaciones e Información (NTIA). Desde el inicio del proceso de comentarios públicos en Singapur hace dos semanas hasta el jueves pasado, recibimos numerosas ideas sobre los principios y los mecanismos, y ahora los estamos incorporando a nuestros materiales de consulta. Asimismo, estamos considerando los comentarios recibidos de nuestros socios principales.

Por ello, necesitamos un poco más de tiempo que la fecha prevista del 7 de abril para finalizar y publicar los documentos relacionados con el alcance, la propuesta provisional del proceso y los plazos para lograr más diálogo público. Ahora los publicaremos a última hora del 8 de abril (UTC). ¡Gracias por su comprensión y esté atento!

    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."
