ICANN to Convene North America Regional Registry/Registrar Event

by Karla Valente on April 11, 2012

On 17-18 May 2012, ICANN and its gTLD registration services providers will meet in Los Angeles, USA.

These regional events are a chance for ICANN staff and representatives from gTLD registries and ICANN-accredited registrars to meet informally to discuss topics important to our industry and business relationships. These events happen regularly and in different locations around the world. Previous events, for example, took place in Tokyo, Munich, Toronto, and Rome.

Although the event is tailored to regional ICANN-accredited registrars and gTLD registries, others located around the globe that may have a regional or business interest also attend.

The agenda is not final yet, however some of the anticipated agenda items are:

  • New gTLDs update, ICANN Registry and Registrar departments operational readiness
  • Developments in Contractual Compliance
  • IDN Developments
  • GNSO Policy Development
  • Policy updates

The regional event model was introduced in 2006 as an educational opportunity for ICANN and its contracted parties to share information about registry and registrar operations within the domain name industry. The events have largely been focused on the policies and procedures registration service providers are obligated to implement and enforce as a result of either their contract with ICANN or with one another.

These regional events are distinguished from the regular international ICANN meetings in that they are not structured, for example, to influence policy development. If you are interested in the policy development and a broader interaction with ICANN stakeholders, please join the upcoming ICANN Meeting in Prague in June this year.

All presentation materials will be published on the ICANN website after the event.

The space to attend this event is limited and interested registrars and registries are asked to pre-register. Others parties who may be interested in becoming an ICANN-accredited registrar or gTLD registry and wish to attend as observers should contact regionalevents@icann.org for further details.

We look forward to seeing you in Los Angeles!

Yes, there will be 4096 slots for gTLDs (aka TLDs including Single Symbol)

Each “slot” also has a Currency for the TLD Community

ICANN was warned that The.Applicant.System (TAS) would not SCALE

ICANN apparently does not listen to technical advice

ICANN could have used Bit.Throttle technology like the New P2P DNS

Batching and Digital.Archery are even worse and yet to emerge

and your own Digital.Currency
http://bitcoin.org/

P2P DNS uses Bit.Throttle technology to prevent overload and negate the need for a Land.Rush. The Network IS the Registry.

The 4096 gTLDs (including single symbols) are determined by computers, not secret cabals.

The New Internet starts with YOUR own Digital.Wallet
http://www.bitaddress.org/
A 16-digit Account Number from a Plastic Card can be used to generate a Deterministic.Digital.Wallet with 160-bit Account Numbers.

The 160-bit Account Numbers derived directly from the Public Keys are combined to form the 480-bit DHT (Distributed Hash Table) Keys

THREE physical CPE routers ($30 each) running *NIX each have one of the Digital.Wallets they manage. 3×160=480

When you “buy” a domain you should obtain all of the physical credentials used to manage the domain in the P2P DNS.

WASHINGTON, D.C. 20580

Chairman Leibowitz:

I am writing in regard to your letter dated December 16, 2011 to ICANN the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. The letter was sent to Dr. Stephen D. Crocker and Rod Beckstrom and copied to various members of the U.S. Congress and the U.S. NTIA.

Your letter does not seem to address one key question:

How does ICANN sell Franchises given the U.S. FTC Franchise Test?

As you are probably aware, the U.S. FTC Franchise Test has THREE main points:

1.Does the Franchisor (ICANN) allow the Franchisee to use their LOGO and Brand?
2.Does the Franchisor (ICANN) charge the Franchisee Fees?
3.Does the Franchisor (ICANN) control the Franchisee?

In all three cases, the answers are clearly: YES YES YES. One, ICANN is very protective of their Logo and Brand. When ICANN Franchisees are stripped of their Franchise one of the first requests is to discontinue use of the ICANN branding. Two, ICANN clearly charges the Franchisees substantial fees. Three, some people question whether ICANN controls their Franchisees. Your letter to ICANN points out some of their short-comings. They still meet the third part of the U.S. FTC Franchise Test and attempt to control their Franchisees.

ICANN claims and has claimed in sworn testimony that “they do not sell anything”. When asked about the U.S. FTC Franchise Test and the various Federal and State laws required for registering and selling Franchises, ICANN simply ignores the questions.

As one of the major protectors of consumer’s trust and their online safety using the Internet, I request that you enforce the U.S. Franchise Laws as they pertain to ICANN.

It should be clear that the new Peer-2-Peer DNS does not rely on any IANA Task, Function, Cartel, Cabal, or Central.Intelligence.Authority.
Distributed.Intelligence serves humanity better.

Despite that…people are determined to promote and prolong the Legacy 1980s IANA…

https://www.fbo.gov/?s=opportunity&mode=form&id=72dc5eb7b831f44f5eadb6c2f44a60ef&tab=core&_cview=0

“The United States Department of Commerce (DoC), National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) intends to award a contract to maintain the continuity and stability of services related to certain interdependent Internet technical management functions, known collectively as the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA)….”

Jim Fleming 04.17.12 at 12:50 pm

There will be 4096 slots for gTLDs (aka TLDs including Single Symbol) The 4096 is partly derived from the 6-bit Alphabet where 2-symbol gTLDs require 12-bits resulting in 4096 combinations.

Each “slot” also has a Currency for the TLD Community
A Bit.Throttle is used for the Currency and DNS Registry
http://bitcoin.org/

The 12-bits determine the PORT used for IP/UDP in the Peer-2-Peer networking. On 12-12-12 Flag.Day the 12-bits will be migrated to the IP Header in the deprecated Identification Field (left 12 bits). The Source Port and Destination Port have the same value. The UDP Header can then be removed for transit and restored on the other end.

3-symbol gTLDs can compute a PORT value using a 4-bit Alphabet

COM=12.3.13 or 0xC3D = P2P Port 3133
NET=4.0.1 or 0x401 = P2P Port 1025

No IANA is needed to derive PORT Values

Has ICANN been asked to delay the TLD Applicant Process until the .ORACLE and .GOOGLE legal battles are worked out over the true origins of .SUN and .JAVA ?

Will the Applicant Information become part of the trial now in process?

Revealing who thinks they “own” .SUN or .JAVA may be interesting.

http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-oracle-page-20120419,0,401138.story

http://TheBigLieSociety.com will reveal a lot of the “truth” behind the .JAVA Programming Language which did not come from the .SUN or the .MOON or .MARS for that matter…

DNSMASQ has been forked… as in FORK://CODE

The AAAA DNS records are synthesized (made up on the fly) so it is sort of hard to see them from central control points.

30-bit routing on the aging legacy dual-core transport (0|1) is ringed by another 30-bit ASN layer. The FREE ASN can be constructed using the 5-bit DNS Alphabet and 6 symbols.

.CA vs CA (0xCA)

People often become confused by the ASCII .CA “CA” which for some silly reason people **think** is CAnada and not CAlifornia.

The DNS wire protocol supports 8-bit Clear (pure binary) in the Labels between the dots.

The ASCII “CA” requires TWO 8-bit bytes to ecode.

The 0XCA only requires ONE byte with the decimal value 202.

The ICONIC representation for .CA as ONE Symbol maps to 0XCA.

The ONE Byte Top-Level-Domains, such as .CA (for CAlifornia) may prove to be more popular that 2-byte “CA” ASCII gTLDs run by a private group of Canadians (not the government).

Two Symbols from the 4-b it Alphabet (below) can be welded together into ONE Iconic unit like a branding-iron for cattle. Those can be Single-Symbol Top Level Domains like [.CA].

The Official ZOOM://DNS 4-bit Alphabet
“ETAO^NRIS^HDLF^CMUZ”

http://atcoalition.org/article/picture-symbol-systems-aac

Jim Fleming 04.25.12 at 10:58 am

.CA vs CA (0xCA) vs [.CA].

To be more clear, 0xCA is decimal 202.

[.CA] used in the ZOOM://DNS has a value 0xC2 = 194 decimal
…because A is mapped to 2.

[.CA] as a Top Level Domain with ONE byte and ONE Icon can be used by people who like that domain. In the Peer-2-Peer DNS people start with a Currency (like BitCoin, NameCoin or SolidCoin) and then use that Currency to “buy” domains in the gTLD they like.

“ETAO^NRIS^HDLF^CMUZ”
“0123^4567^89AB^CDEF”
The ordering is based on letter frequency usage in common words.

Jim Fleming 04.25.12 at 1:41 pm

On “OE.” or Œ. Top Level Domains

In the Microsoft Peer-Name-Resolution Protocol (PNRP) their patents seem to imply that the Single-Symbol Top Level Domain Name “0” (dot Zero) is their choice for the Free Global Registry Space. [As an aside, PNRP seems to lack a Bit.Throttle to manage insertion load.]

Looking at “0” as an ASCII value and 8-bits on the DNS wire protocol, one should see decimal 48 or hex 30 (ox30) for the letter “0”.

0x30 with the 4-bit Alphabet results in an Icon that looks like “OE” or Œ.
ΠLatin capital ligature OE &OElig &#338 &#x152

In a Model-View-Controller world one has to understand the View may not be exactly the Model. The DNS wire protocol only sees the single byte value 0x30 (48) for that gTLD. The person may see “OE” or Œ or some other Icon people use for that gTLD.

OE is not a country but neither are CA or OZ. They are just Icons.

The 160-bit IP Header for IPv3 and IPv4 is the same. IPv6 has a 320-bit Header that can be fixed using IPv16. The two headers are combined for 480-bits.

480-bits is a handy size. With the 6-bit DNS Alphabet, one 80-column punched card can encode one 480-bit DHT KEY.

The API for the DHT is simple: Put(KEY,DATA,TIME) and Get(KEY)

You can also make a 480-bit KEY from three 160-bit Keys in your Wallet. The THREE CPE routers each have a Wallet.

IPv3 could be named because of the THREE CPE Routers used.
