Hello SM / Kris,

1.         Est-ce légal qu’AfriNIC procède à l’audit et à la récupération
des ressources? Oui.

2.         L’exigence de faire l’audit en toute transparence
constitue-t-elle un risque de violation du NDA ?

Nous ne pensons pas que ça soit le cas car les informations échangées ne
sont pas mises sur la place publique et sont manipulées exclusivement  par

3.         La publication du rapport : celle-ci ne constitue pas un risque
de violation du NDA les données personnelles ne sont pas publiées et la
version actuelle de la proposition n’impose pas de les publier. Pour éviter
toute équivoque, nous nous proposons de spécifier clairement dans la
section 3.6  de ne pas publier les données personnelles pour ne pas violer
le NDA.

En rapport avec la DPA, est-ce le modèle de rapport proposé sur la liste  et
présenté sous [1] expose t’il a une violation quelconque ?

Si oui quel type de données y contribue ?

Bien cordialement.


Description of "members” in AFRINIC context may at some points looks like:

A- How many members have been reviewed :

 - By type:  LIR, End-users, etc…

 - By Category:  Extralarge, Large, Medium, small, etc…

B- Type of ressources involved:  ASN, IPv4 ,IPv6

C- Level of compliance
