Open Date: 2 March 2018 Close Date: 18 April 2018
Originating Organization: Security and Stability Advisory Committee (SSAC)
  • Top-Level Domains
  • Security/Stability
Brief Overview: The proposed Name Collision Analysis Project (NCAP) project plan has been drafted by the ICANN Security and Stability Advisory Committee (SSAC). It details their proposed approach for studying name collision in response to the ICANN Board's request in resolutions 2017.11.02.29 - 2017.11.02.31. The proposed SSAC study is intended to facilitate the development of policy on Collision Strings to mitigate potential harm to the stability and security of the DNS posed by delegation of such strings. The SSAC seeks community input on the project plan before it is finalized and SSAC consensus is reached for submission to the Board for approval and project kick-off.
