Welcome to the Trademark Clearinghouse Database (TMDB) web client

As part of ICANN’s commitment to security and stability, ICANN will be enhancing the security configuration on the Trademark Database (TMDB) interfaces. These changes will be effective in the production environment for the TMDB as of 10 December 2018. To ensure contracted parties can prepare for these changes, the TMDB Operational Testing & Evaluation (OT&E) systems will be available for validation and testing beginning on 10 October 2018. We strongly recommend that contracted parties begin testing their systems as soon as possible.

The new settings for the OT&E systems are provided below:

The Transport Layer Security (TLS) implementation on the following URLs:

https://ry.marksdb.org and https://tmcnis.org will be updated as follows:
    Only TLS v1.2 will be supported.
    Only the following ciphers will be permitted:
        TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256
        TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384
        TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA
        TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA
        TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA256
        TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA384
        TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256
        TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384
        TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA
        TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA
        TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA256
        TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA384
        TLS_DHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256
        TLS_DHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384
        TLS_DHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA
        TLS_DHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA
        TLS_DHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA256

The Trademark Clearinghouse Database (TMDB) system serves as the central database to provide information to Registries and Registrars supporting the Sunrise and Claims services.

The TMDB system web client enables Registries and Registrars to access the Clearinghouse Database (TMDB) system. Only Registries and Registrars that are authorised by ICANN are authorised to access the TMDB system.

Registry:

As a Registry, you own a Top Level Domain (TLD) and can accept Domain Name registrations from Registrars; maintaining the central Database of Registered Domains. If you are authorized as a Registry, the TMDB web client allows you to:
  • Configure and test your connections with the TMDB
  • Retrieve the SMD Revocation List
  • Retrieve the DNL List
  • Submit a LORDN File
  • Retrieve a LORDN Log File

Registrar:

As a Registrar, you can register Domain Names with the Registry on behalf of the Registrant. If you are authorized as a Registrar, the TMDB web client allows you to:
  • Configure and test your connections with the TMDB
  • Retrieve the SMD Revocation List
  • Retrieve CNIS files

You can refer to the ICANN website (http://www.icann.org) for further details.
