Novedades del Defensor del Pueblo

La Oficina del Defensor del Pueblo continúa en pleno funcionamiento a pesar de las disrupciones ocasionadas por la pandemia de COVID-19. Junto a mi colega y compañera de equipo, Barbara Corwin, quisiera contarles acerca de las actividades que hemos llevado a cabo recientemente.

Tenemos el agrado de anunciarles que el Informe Anual 2019 de la Oficina del Defensor del Pueblo se encuentra publicado en este espacio.

Durante el Foro Virtual de la Comunidad ICANN67, trabajamos mediante la oficina en línea del Defensor del Pueblo, lo cual fue un éxito. Tenemos una cuenta en Zoom para realizar reuniones virtuales y llevar adelante investigaciones (recepción de reclamos, entrevistas, mediaciones, etc.) mientras siga estando restringida la interacción presencial.

Nuestro equipo también ofrece sesiones informativas para los líderes de la comunidad de la ICANN sobre iniciativas contra el acoso, o bien para tratar incidentes de acoso o conducta indebida en sus correspondientes organizaciones de apoyo o comités asesores.

Si necesitan contactarse con el equipo de la Oficina del Defensor del Pueblo, pueden escribirnos a ombudsman@icann.org o presentar un reclamo mediante el formulario disponible en https://omb.icann.org.

Les agradezco su atención y espero que se encuentren bien.

    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."
