SSAC Report on WHOIS Terminology and Structure [SAC 051]

SSAC Report on WHOIS Terminology and Structure

This Report has two parts: In Section 2, we propose a taxonomy that disambiguates terminology that has been used in discussions related to domain name registration data. In Section 3, we identify features the SSAC believes should be considered in future domain name registration data directory services. Section 4 summarizes four key observations related to the stalled progress on WHOIS thus far, and Section 5 offers recommendations for how to move the conversation forward to fulfill the commitment stated above.
