You had best take a look at the definition of Whois, in RFC 954.
PIN numbers and/or passwords aren't going to work there, or will
provide only worse-than-symbolic security. If you want to
start talking about selective access to the information, you
need to think in terms of some more advanced protocol or
database technology. I'd suggest that you go to
in regards to ENUM implementation, issues like privacy and
security cannot be avoided. the concern arise on what should
be contained in the WHOIS and Tier 2 NAPTR record. With WHOIS,
MAYBE to only allow a certain eligible people to access the
record by having PIN number and password?
and start reading the documents cited there as an introduction
to some of the possibilities and issues.
