I represent the VeriSign Domain Name Registry as an implementer of the latest IDNA specifications. The following four (4) questions arose during our implementation of the conformance test.
Question 1 of 4
Input \u0646 \u0627 \u0645 \u0647 \u200C \u0627 \u06CC
Reference Appendix A.1 of RFC 5892 (Tables) <https://trac.tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5892>
Issue Per the reference, the ZWNJ (\u200C) must meet one of two qualifications. It must be preceded by a character with VIRAMA combining class. OR the characters in the label must have a certain pattern of joining types. This input does not meet either of these criteria, and appears to be an invalid IDN label with respect to the IDNA 2008 standards. There are ten (10) such lines in the input file.
Question 2 of 4
Reference Sections 3.1 and 3.5 of RFC 1034 <http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc1034.txt>
Issue Per the reference, DNS labels cannot contain more than 63 octets. It appears that this is a purposeful test, since the first label is exactly 63 octets, and the second label is 64 octets. This does not apply to other applications, but these lines of input are not valid for DNS. There are three (3) such lines in the input file.
Question 3 of 4
Input U \u0308 . xn--tda
Reference Section 4.1 of RFC 5891 (Protocol) <https://trac.tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5891>
Issue Per the reference, input into the IDNA Registration process "MUST be... in Normalization Form C". This input does not meet these standards. The first label is not properly normalized. Implementations of IDNA 2008 for registration should expect an exception. There are four (4) such lines in the input file.
Question 4 of 4
Reference Appendix B.1 of RFC 5892 (Tables) <https://trac.tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5892>
Issue Per the reference, the character \u2615 is disallowed.
2460..26CD ; DISALLOWED # CIRCLED DIGIT ONE..DISABLED CAR
Implementations should expect an exception. There are twenty (20) such lines in the input file.
Any input is appreciated,
