Defender Security protects geographic names at the second level of .SECURITY by the following described measures. These have been developed in response to the GAC’s Principles regarding New gTLDs, dated March 28, 2007, and to adhere to the requirements of the ICANN Registry Agreement Specification 5.
In correspondence with GAC principle 2.7, all country and territory names under .SECURITY are reserved for registration free of charge for the corresponding countries and territories. To accomplish this we will prior to launch (i) place the names on a reserved list that can solely be released as second-level registrations under .SECURITY by an agreement with the respective country or territory and with ICANN; and (ii) include in the registration policy that country and territory names are prohibited for use at lower levels.
The names reserved as country and territory names will correspond to the requirements in the ICANN Registry Agreement Specification 5, paragraph 5; and paragraph 2 where all two-character labels will be reserved for registration. Any release of such names is done to the appropriate corresponding country or territory and thereby avoids user confusion. All other Specification 5 requirements are also included in the reserved names.
When Defender Security is launching Internationalized Domain Names under the TLD translated versions of country and territory names will be placed on a reserved list that
also only can be released for registration if an agreement has been reached with the corresponding country or territory and ICANN.
Dispute resolution policies will address dispute over any names not reserved by the above provisions; see response to question #28 and #29. In particular all domains awarded to registrants are subject to the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP), and to any properly-situated court proceeding. We will ensure appropriate procedures to allow governments, public authorities or IGO’s to challenge abuses of names with national or geographic significance at the second level. In its registry-registrar agreement, and flowing down to registrar-registrant agreements, the registry operator will institute a provision to suspend domains names in the event of a dispute. We may exercise that right in the case of a dispute over a geographic name.
The release of a two-character, country, or territory name as second level registration will be done in agreement with the corresponding country or territory and ICANN. We will define a procedure so that governments can request the above reserved domain(s) if they would like to take possession of them. This procedure will be based on existing methodology developed for the release of country names in the .INFO TLD. For example, we will require a written request from the country’s GAC representative, or a written request from the country’s relevant Ministry or Department. We will allow the designated beneficiary (the Registrant) to register the name, with an accredited Afilias Registrar, possibly using an authorization number transmitted directly to the designated beneficiary in the country concerned.
Other GAC Principles regarding New gTLDs are defined elsewhere in this application, for example methods for limiting the need for defensive registrations in paragraph 2.9 is described in response to question #18b; efforts concerning data accuracy, integrity and validity is described in response to question #18b and #26.
