ICANN Maps Whois Models for GDPR

Michele Neylon

Earlier today ICANN held a webinar to provide an update on their data privacy activities in relation to whois and GDPR.

Rather than simply talking about the various "models" they produced both a visual mapping as well as a matrix.

While some attendees may not agree with how all the models are classified it is still a helpful way of showing the deviations from the current fully public whois model for gTLD domain name registrations.

ICANN has been publishing updates and related documents on their site here.
