it came up to my attention about ENUM privacy and security. according to the ENUM USA forum, the focus is on Tier 2 NAPTR where collection of information from consumer is happening, as well as the WHOIS database where people can look up for other's information.
there is a debate in australian ENUM whether we should involve WHOIS or not for privacy reason.
in my opinion, there should be a dedicated entity to handle the record collection and maintenance and another entity to ensure that the dedicated entity is doing the job properly according to the regulation.
i would like to know from your point of view on the management of information flow in Tier 2 NAPTR and the WHOIS database?
i think it is a good idea to keep the WHOIS database, yet only the privileged people that is allowed to access the database (e.g having PIN number)
