This report supports substantive deliberations, and facilitates the progress of the Open-ended Working Group (OEWG) on developments in the field of information and telecommunications in the context of international security by elaborating possible options and practical recommendations for establishing an effective global directory of Points of Contact (PoC) on security in the use of ICTs.
