Another one: WTDC 45 relates to PP 130 and WTSA 50, which both refer to work being undertaken by ITU-T Study Group 17 on “National IP-based Public Network Security Centers.” It may be necessary to revise WTDC 45 to reflect edits to PP 130 and WTSA 50, recognizing that the kind of security measures that can be implemented on an IP-based network is very different from cybersecurity across competing, autonomous providers. The work in Study Group 17 should reflect that distinction, acknowledging that different contexts and different political cultures would favor different approaches.

So, one more in the list: WTDC Resolutions 23, 30, 13, 37, 47 and now 45 are all examples of WTDC resolutions that may need to be revised based on recognizing the Internet in the WSIS resolutions.

Here are links to html versions of PP 130 and WTSA 50:

Hello Doreen, Franz, Julian, all:

Please take note of the following observations on WTDC Prep in the overall WSIS context.

I have been reading all the relevant resolutions from a broad perspective, including WTDC, WTSA and Plenipot.
