ICANN's Security Stability and Resiliency (SSR) Team Responds to Public Input on Domain Abuse Activity Reporting (DAAR) Reviews
LOS ANGELES – 1 February 2019 – Today, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) published a summary of the public input on the Domain Abuse Activity Reporting (DAAR) methodology. The Office of the Chief Technology Officer Security, Stability, and Resiliency (OCTO-SSR) Team carefully reviewed the recent public input submissions from the ICANN community and provided responses where relevant.
DAAR was designed to provide the ICANN community with reliable, persistent, and reproducible data from which security threat (abuse) analyses could be performed.
To foster confidence in the DAAR system, the ICANN organization has engaged two independent experts to review the methodology paper, comment on the threat data, and experiment with the reporting system.
To further incorporate community opinion on DAAR and the independent reviews, ICANN org asked for public input between 20 July 2018 and 24 August 2018. The findings and recommendations from the reviewers and parties who provided input will be considered in the final drafting of the methodology paper and future modifications to the DAAR system.

ICANN's mission is to help ensure a stable, secure, and unified global Internet. To reach another person on the Internet, you need to type an address – a name or a number – into your computer or other device. That address must be unique so computers know where to find each other. ICANN helps coordinate and support these unique identifiers across the world. ICANN was formed in 1998 as a not-for-profit public-benefit corporation with a community of participants from all over the world.
