  15. 15. BAKOM . ENUM Workshop . 2002-11-25 . Biel/Bienne 15 Major Issues of the Policy Framework § Competition – On ENUM Tier 2 (Registrar and Name Server Provider) it shall be possible in any case to have fair competition on the basis of a level playing field § Integrity of E.164 numbering space – Integrity of E.164 numbering space and associated ENUM domain space must be assured under any circumstances § Validation – Necessary validations shall be possible for all players on their respective level (i.e. for ENUM SP, which are no TSP) – Extent of validation to be investigated in dedicated sub-group
  16. 16. BAKOM . ENUM Workshop . 2002-11-25 . Biel/Bienne 16 Validation is key ... (. . . at least for the regulator) – To verify the identity of the ENUM subscriber – Already known (easy) – Not known (online, face-to-face, id-card, …) – Authentication (password, …) – To verify that the ENUM subscriber is the assignee of an E.164 number – Already known (easy) – Not known (last bill from TSP, letter of confirmation, …) – To verify that this E.164 number is in operation with a TSP – Known, because of own customer (easy ?) – Not known (central database, directory, info from TSP, …) – To verify that item 2 and 3 are still valid – Otherwise: cease ENUM delegation – Most problematic validation
  17. 17. BAKOM . ENUM Workshop . 2002-11-25 . Biel/Bienne 17 Validation for the Trial (not suited for future commercial phase) § Participation of subscribers already known only – later identification via billing address possible § E.164 number shall be listed in public directory – data to be the same as in application for ENUM delegation § Geographic and mobile numbers only – Other numbers after consultation with RTR possible § Validation and de-validation with periodic check to be done by ENUM service provider (registrar) § Open issue: corporate ENUM subscribers § Evaluation of methods during trial

  22. 22. BAKOM . ENUM Workshop . 2002-11-25 . Biel/Bienne 22 Summary § Strong joint effort of industry and authority puts Austria amongst the first to start an ENUM field trial § RTR policy framework is intended to enable a first trial within a short timeframe not demanding all the problems to be solved in advance § Validation as well as competition are issues discussed controversially in the first months of the work § Finally, we hope to see a Swiss ENUM Trial to take off soon and would like to invite you to interwork with the Austrian ENUM Trial
