WGIG Papers Released

The Working Group on Internet Governance has released its first major set of documents. From the WGIG website:

The papers below are the first of a series of 'draft working papers' prepared by WGIG members, reflecting the preliminary findings of various drafting teams. They have been subject to review by all WGIG members, but they do not necessarily present a consensus position nor do they contain agreed language accepted by every member. The purpose of the drafts is to provide a basis for the ongoing work of the group. They are therefore not to be seen as chapters of the final WGIG report, but rather as raw material that will be used when drafting the report. The draft working papers have been published here for public comment, so they will evolve, taking into account input from governments and stakeholders. Additional draft working papers will be made available in this section.

List of Papers:

- Administration of Internet names and IP addresses
- Administration of the Root Server system
- Peering and Interconnection
- Telecommunications infrastructure, broadband access, convergence with NGN
- Cyber security, cybercrime
- Competition policy, liberalization, privatization and regulations
- Spam
- Dispute Resolution
- Security of network and information systems

Governments and all stakeholders are invited to comment on these papers, preferably by making use of this template. Due consideration will be given to all comments, but use of the template will facilitate processing feedback. All comments received from governments and WSIS accredited entities by 11 February 1200 hours GMT will be posted on the website. Comments by other entities or individuals will also be posted, provided they are relevant to the issues under discussion.
