Dear Colleagues,

The Number Resource Organization (NRO) has developed a proposal for ITHI risk identification and definition in response to an ongoing ICANN initiative.

Each Regional Internet Registry (RIR) is responsible for ensuring the accuracy of its registry data. This is critical to the reliability of the RIR Whois databases which provide access to the public data of the Registry. For the purposes of measuring the state of the data, accuracy has been defined as “comprehensive, correct, and current”. The Registration Services coordination (RSCG) and Engineering coordination groups (ECG) have developed recommendations for how the RIRs can identify and measure risk associated with registry data accuracy.

We are now seeking feedback on the NRO ITHI project proposal, specifically on the definition of the risks and measurements to report on registry data accuracy.

Draft Proposal: Proposal for ITHI risk identification and definition (https://www.nro.net/ithi-project/).

The deadline for providing feedback: Tuesday December 12th 2017

How to engage in discussions:

Community feedback and discussion will be conducted on the < ithi-consult at nro.net> mailing list.
