[EP3.7] [Social] Approval of ENS Name Normalization Standard (ENSIP-15)

Abstract

This is a vote to approve ENSIP-15: Normalization Standard.

Motivation

EP3.7 Motivation

  • Normalization isn't enforced on-chain.
  • There is no code for the DAO to execute.
  • Approval for ENSIP-15 should be confirmed through a social vote.

ENSIP-15 Motivation

  • Since ENSIP-1 (originally EIP-137) was finalized in 2016, Unicode has evolved from version 8.0.0 to 15.0.0 and incorporated many new characters, including complex emoji sequences.
  • ENSIP-1 does not state the version of Unicode.
  • ENSIP-1 implies but does not state an explicit flavor of IDNA processing.
  • UTS-46 is insufficient to normalize emoji sequences. Correct emoji processing is only possible with UTS-51.
  • Validation tests are needed to ensure implementation compliance.
  • The success of ENS has encouraged spoofing via the following techniques:
    1. Insertion of zero-width characters.
    2. Using names which normalize differently between algorithms.
    3. Using names which appear differently between applications and devices.
    4. Substitution of confusable (look-alike) characters.
    5. Mixing incompatible scripts.
