ICANN, unprepared for the implementation of GDPR in WHOIS

Its board of directors Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is reportedly running and not reaching. In the days left until the implementation of the GDPR it will have to find a way to him y WHOIS, the main database that lists who owns domain names, to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation of the European Union.ICANN

ICANN had asked for a year of grace to deal with the problems in the WHOIS data collection, but apparently did not succeed.

Εάν δεν υπάρξει μορατόριουμ, δεν θα είμαστε πλέον σε θέση να … διατηρήσουμε το WHOIS. Χωρίς την επίλυση αυτών των ζητημάτων, το σύστημα WHOIS θα κατακερματιστεί … Ένα κατακερματισμένο WHOIS δεν θα μπορεί να χρησιμοποιεί πλέον ένα κοινό πλαίσιο για γενικές top-level domains (gTLD) registry.

This is bad…

Domain registration companies will be responsible and will have penalties from GDPR μέχρι και 20 εκατ. ευρώ ή το 4% του ετήσιου τζίρου, που μπορεί να ξεπερνάει τα 20 εκατομμύρια. τους – όποιο είναι μεγαλύτερο. Μια άλλη άσχημη παρενέργεια για τις εταιρείες καταχώρησης domain είναι ότι πολλές από αυτές τώρα χρεώνουν επιπλέον για να κρατήσουν τις πληροφορίες των ιδιοκτητών των domains ιδιωτικές. Με την εφαρμογή όμως του GDPR για την της ιδιωτικής ζωής, δεν θα υπάρχει ανάγκη για την συγκεκριμένη υπηρεσία.

The GDPR will treat WHOIS as another set of data and not as an integral part of how the internet works, which is incredibly short-sighted.
Intelligence expert Angela Gunn reports: “The security experts, researchers, webmasters, and even ordinary citizens will pay dearly for concealment.

Or, as Cherine Chalaby, Chairman of the Board of ICANN, stated, “WHOIS is an important system and its maintenance allows us to have a key tool in the ongoing fight against cybercrime against malicious agents. The proposed model aims to prevent the fragmentation of WHOIS and to ensure that WHOIS will continue to be available. ICANN's role in providing technical coordination to the global WHOIS is a unique issue of a public interest nature. "

So what is the problem? Τα Site registers εξακολουθούν να συλλέγουν τα δεδομένα νέων εγγραφών όπως το έκαναν πάντα. Στα δεδομένα συμπεριλαμβάνονται πληροφορίες καταχώρησης, στοιχεία επικοινωνίας του κατόχου του domain αλλά και της ομάδες/υπευθύνου της τεχνικής υποστήριξης. Τα περισσότερα δεν θα είναι διαθέσιμα δημοσίως και αν κάποιος τα χρειάζεται , θα μπορεί να έχει through providers. This can be done through an anonymous online form.
This creates a very serious issue. Domain registrants are required to publish the data in the WHOIS database of the global ICANN authority, which is in conflict with the requirements of the upcoming GDPR.

ICANN could not find a way to provide "reasonable access" to this data to third parties with "legitimate interests".
So many questions seem to remain, while the still spinning. Whether ICANN is ready or not, GDPR will take effect on May 25, 2018.
