ICANN Publishes Unified Access Framework for WHOIS Data

ICANN recently published its proposed framework elements for a unified access model for continued access to full WHOIS data in response to implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The framework is based on a number of proposal and other feedback that ICANN had solicited from the community at large. ICANN’s update on community feedback and the proposed framework can be found here.

As part of its update, ICANN provides a chart comparing its framework with two other proposal that it received from the community, including InfoNetwork’s own “Philly Special” proposal.
