GNSO Next-Generation Registration Directory Services (RDS) to replace WHOIS Policy Development Process Working Group Meeting
On 26 May, 2015, the ICANN Board reaffirmed its 2012 request for a Board-initiated PDP to define the purpose of collecting, maintaining and providing access to gTLD registration data, and to consider safeguards for protecting data, using the recommendations in the EWG’s Final Report as an input to, and, if appropriate, as the foundation for a new gTLD policy. Accordingly, the GNSO Next-Generation gTLD RDS PDP Working Group is currently working through phase 1 of the Board-requested PDP, using the Framework’s 3-phase process to (1) establish gTLD registration data requirements to determine if and why a next-generation RDS is needed, (2) design policies that detail functions that must be provided by a next-generation RDS to support those requirements, and (3) provide guidance for how a next-generation RDS should implement those policies, coexisting with and eventually replacing WHOIS. This session provides an opportunity for WG members, WG observers and guests to help shape possible requirements to be deliberated upon by this WG. The WG will strive to reach consensus on requirements, using them to decide if and why a next-generation RDS is needed to replace WHOIS. During this session, the WG will focus on making progress on near-term tasks outlined in the WG's work plan (see https://community.icann.org/x/oIxlAw). This session will be led by RDS PDP WG chair Chuck Gomes, supported by vice chairs David Cake, Susan Kawaguchi, and Michele Neylon and by ICANN Policy Staff members Marika Konings, Lisa Phifer, and Amr Elsadr. For further information about this PDP, please see https://community.icann.org/x/rjJ-Ag. Wiki agenda page: https://community.icann.org/x/oiIhB

GNSO Review of all Rights Protection Mechanisms in all Generic Top-Level Domains
Part I: The GNSO’s Review of All Rights Protection Mechanisms (RPMs) Policy Development Process (PDP) Working Group was chartered in March 2016 to conduct a two-phased PDP. In Phase One, which is ongoing, the Working Group is reviewing all the RPMs that were developed for the 2012 New gTLD Program. In September 2017, the GNSO Council approved a request for extensive data collection from the Working Group, involving surveys of registries, registrars, trademark and brand owners, actual and potential domain name registrants, and public interest groups and industry associations.
This session is a working session for the Working Group’s Data Sub Team, which has been tasked to review the data collection request covering the Sunrise Registrations and Trademark Claims RPMs, with a view toward providing more specific guidance as to the nature of the questions to be developed for the surveys. The session is open to all interested community members to attend. Part II: In this second of four open community sessions being held at ICANN60, the Working Group will begin its initial review of the Uniform Rapid Suspension procedure (URS).
The URS is a dispute resolution procedure, based substantially on the longstanding Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy, that allows trademark owners to obtain a suspension of a domain name that was registered and used in bad faith by a third party without legitimate rights in the name. This open session will include an overview of the procedure, and a staff presentation of initial data regarding the cases that have been filed to date under the URS. All interested community members are welcome to attend this session.

Competition, Consumer Trust, and Consumer Choice Review Team (CCT) Engagement Session
Interested in hearing how DNS Abuse impacts the New Generic Top-Level Domain (New gTLD) Program? Join the engagement session of the Competition, Consumer Trust and Consumer Choice (CCT) Review Team on 29 October 2017 to learn about its latest findings and share your input.
The goal of this engagement session is to provide an overview of the CCT findings and recommendations from its Draft Reports. This is a unique opportunity to provide your feedback, questions, and comments. Community participation is key to the success of a review, so please share your unique input and perspective to help shape the final recommendations of the CCT.
The CCT plans to publish new sections to their draft report for public comment in November. These include the impact of safeguards introduced as part of the New gTLD Program to mitigate DNS abuse and the costs to trademark holders. A link to new sections draft is available in the interim - see: https://community.icann.org/display/CCT/New+Sections+Public+Comment+Period.
The Review Team sought to measure the effectiveness of a number of technical safeguards developed for the New gTLD Program in mitigating various forms of DNS abuse. To do so, ICANN commissioned the Statistical Analysis of DNS Abuse in gTLDs (SADAG) report by researchers from SIDN Labs and Delft University of Technology to address the review team’s request for a comprehensive DNS abuse study. Results of the study can be found at https://www.icann.org/public-comments/sadag-final-2017-08-09-en.
To better understand the impact of the New gTLD Program on rights holders, the CCT Review Team worked with INTA, which commissioned a survey of its members. The results of this survey informed the CCT Review Team as it made recommendations on rights protection mechanisms that were incorporated into the New gTLD Program.
The Competition, Consumer Trust and Consumer Choice Review (CCT) is mandated by the ICANN Bylaws to evaluate: 1) how the New gTLD Program has promoted competition, consumer trust and consumer choice. 2) the effectiveness of the application and evaluation processes. 3) the effectiveness of safeguards put in place to mitigate issues arising from the New gTLD Round.
This review is one of the key inputs to the re-opening of applications for the next round of New gTLDs.
For further information on the Competition, Consumer Trust and Consumer Choice Review Team, please see https://www.icann.org/resources/reviews/specific-reviews/cct and the CCTRT wiki http://cct.wiki.

ccNSO TLD OPS Workshop [C]
TLD-OPS Workshop on the Collaborative Development of a ccTLD DDoS Mitigation Framework
Goal
The goal of the workshop is to explore how TLD-OPS members can collaborate to develop a DDoS Mitigation framework
Motivation
This workshop is in response to the TLD-OPS DDoS Mitigation workshop held at ICANN58 in Copenhagen on March 12, 2017. Since DDoS attacks may have a severe impact on the target (and potentially collateral damage for others), TLD-OPS Standing Committee believes it is important to mobilize the collective experience of the TLD-OPS community to develop and document a framework to better prepare ccTLD in responding to a DDoS attacks.
The workshop facilitates this dialog through sharing of experiences, discussion, and generation of ideas. We will be looking the topic from multiple perspectives, such as technical, operational, compliance, and strategic. Breakout groups will use flip charts for brainstorming.
Ultimately we would like to morph the framework into a usable maturity model where a ccTLD can evaluate/assess its DDoS mitigation readiness stance against a simple model.
TLD-OPS is the incident response community for and by ccTLDs. Its purpose is to enable TLD-OPS members to collaboratively detect and mitigate relevant security and stability-related incidents on a global level, including DDoS attacks.
The aim of TLD-OPS is to further extend members’ existing incident response structures, processes, and tools and not to replace them.
Closed Session
Please accept our apologies for not being able to open up this session for everyone. This is because we will be sharing confidential information that will help ccTLDs to collaboratively strengthen the operational security and stability of their services.
Thank you for your understanding!
On behalf of the TLD-OPS Standing Committee, Jacques Latour Chair
About TLD-OPS
TLD-OPS is the global incident response community for and by ccTLDs. For more information, please contact the TLD-OPS Standing Committee at ccnso-tldops@icann.org or visit the TLD-OPS website: http://ccnso.icann.org/resources/tld-ops-secure-communication.htm.

GNSO - ICANN & Human Rights - CCWP-HR
Human rights are an increasingly crucial part of processes and community discussions at ICANN. The commitment to human rights is now part of the ICANN bylaws with the the Framework of Interpretation being finalised. The most recent budget also approves a human rights impact assessment (HRIA) for 2018. The Cross Community Working Party on ICANNs Corporate and Social Responsibility to Respect Human Rights aims to provide an overview of ongoing human rights related processes and present research on ICANN's present and potential impact on human rights. The session will begin with an overview of the human rights discussion at ICANN, with updates from the CCWG processes from Work-Stream 2. This will be followed by the presentation of a new report on potential HRIA models for the GNSO. This session hopes to better inform the nuances of human rights discussions at ICANN, while encouraging interactive and constructive cross-community participation. We will invite expert discussants from across stakeholder groups to provide feedback and dialogue at the session. This builds on the sessions held since ICANN50 in London, on this issue as well as the previous reports that were produced on this topic which can be found here: http://icannhumanrights.net Wiki agenda page: https://community.icann.org/x/LSMhB

Join this high-interest session for an exceptional opportunity to provide your input and feedback on draft recommendations, as the Cross Community Working Group on Accountability (CCWG-Accountability) of Work Stream 2 (WS2) begins writing its final report.
The session will inform the ICANN communities on: • The approach for completing the work of the CCWG-Accountability. • The progress made on its 8 sub-projects: o Diversity (draft report should be completing its first public consultation). o Guidelines for standards of conduct presumed to be in good faith associated with exercising removal of individual ICANN Board Directors (final recommendations should be submitted for final approval). o Human Rights (recommendations should be submitted for final approval). o Jurisdiction (TBD). o Ombudsman (draft recommendations expected to be in public consultation). o SO/AC Accountability (recommendations should be submitted for final approval). o Staff Accountability (draft recommendations expected to be in public consultation). o Transparency (second version of the draft recommendations should be in public consultation). o The developments of the IRP Implementation Oversight Team (IOT).
There will be multiple opportunities for Q&A throughout the session.
Background The CCWG-Accountability is expected to deliver proposals that would enhance ICANN’s accountability towards all stakeholders. Work Stream 2 was extended for all of fiscal year 2018 at ICANN59, and is currently on track to complete the project by June 2018. The CCWG-Accountability must begin writing its final Report after ICANN60 and be prepared to publish it for a public consultation by ICANN61. This would allow it to finalize its report for Chartering Organizations' approval by ICANN62 in June 2018.
Agenda • Background on WS2 • Process for completing WS2 • Review of schedule to complete WS2 • Review, status and Q&A for each WS2 topic: • Closing Q&A

GNSO Review of all Rights Protection Mechanisms in all Generic Top-Level Domains
The GNSO’s Review of All Rights Protection Mechanisms (RPMs) Policy Development Process (PDP) Working Group was chartered in March 2016 to conduct a two-phased PDP. In Phase One, which is ongoing, the Working Group is reviewing all the RPMs that were developed for the 2012 New gTLD Program. Concurrently, a review on competition, consumer protection, security, stability and resiliency, malicious abuse issues, sovereignty concerns, and rights protection – mandated by the ICANN Bylaws to take place a year after the 2012 New gTLD Program Round has been in operation – is also ongoing. This Competition, Consumer Protection & Consumer Trust (CCT) Review Team published an initial report in March 2017 that included a number of preliminary recommendations for RPMs.
In this session, the RPM Review Working Group will meet with the CCT Review Team, to obtain an update on the Review Team’s proposed final recommendations on RPMs. The Review Team’s work was highlighted in the PDP Charter to be a specific parallel work track which outcome needs to be taken into account by the Working Group. All interested community members are welcome to attend this session.

This group is an ICANN wide Cross-Community Committee focussed on assisting ICANN in being as ‘Accessible’, with as few barriers to engagement, as possible.

At this meeting in Abu Dhabi, we will review recent accomplishments in our key objectives, look at what has recently been mentioned in the ‘Diversity’ report from Work Stream 2 of the CCWG - Accountability and continue to focus discussions on how we can assist ICANN to become a ‘Top-Notch' organisation on matters of facilitating and supporting Accessibility.
This is an open meeting and anyone with an interest in accessibility and wishing to help "ICANN to bake into its DNA" consideration, care and proactive design towards excellence in 'Accessibility' in its work is welcome to attend. Agenda: https://community.icann.org/x/oW7wAw
