Busy end to 2018 Internet governance calendar

At APNIC, we continually keep track of Internet governance discussions, both at regional and global levels, making positive and constructive contributions where possible.

While these policy measures mostly affect the world of gTLD names, many discussions from ICANN extended into the realm of Regional Internet Registries (RIRs) because whois is a globally distributed system that also includes Internet numeric address data.

Although no important changes to the way whois is published by the RIRs are foreseen in response to the GDPR, we have been promoting the value, and supporting the continuity of the whois service.

At APNIC, we promoted discussions on whois in several events during 2018: Also at ICANN 63, the RIRs, via the Number Resource Organization Executive Council (NRO-EC), held initial discussions with ICANN executives and the ICANN Board about the implementation of the recommendations of the second independent review of the Addressing Supporting Organization (ASO).

These statements refer to what President Xi Jinping envisioned as a “community of common destiny”, which he articulated at WIC 2015, including four principles (cyber sovereignty, peace and security, openness and cooperation, and good order) and five action proposals (digital divide, cultural diversity, digital economy, cyber security and Internet governance).

This panel is expected to propose new solutions to digital cooperation, and suggested the IGF to take a more multidisciplinary approach in supporting these solutions.

While this regulatory approach generated controversy, at the end of his speech he referred to a more subtle initiative called “The Paris Call for Trust and Security in Cyberspace”, a high level declaration suggested by France and supported by more than 250 entities, among them governments, private sector and several organizations, including APNIC, to implement cooperative measures to address these threats.

The main goals for APNIC in this conference were to: provide technical insights to the delegations, be a resource for those interested in understanding the Internet addressing community, keep the network operators at top of mind during negotiations, and promote further collaboration with ITU in the Asia Pacific region.

Referring to the 20+ years of history, I noted the efforts by different stakeholder communities to develop international governance frameworks for the coordination of the Internet addressing system, sometimes also known as ‘critical Internet resources’.

This in turn, can result in restricting future governance discussions to mostly state actors, while the probabilities of them reaching agreements at the international level could be very low.

However, this can also result in a scenario where the history of cybersecurity and the Internet can converge in seeking innovative governance solutions through inclusive processes that can learn from past experiences but offer feasible solutions to maintain trust in the stability and security of the Internet.

The APNIC community has 25 years of experience on just that: seeking innovative governance solutions through our Policy Development Process and through sharing best practices for network operators, on IPv6, cybersecurity, and the development of a stable and secure Internet in Asia Pacific.
