Proposed Strategic Initiatives for Improved DNS Security, Stability and Resiliency (SSR)

Open: 12 February 2010
Closed: 29 March 2010 Extended to 14 April 2010

Explanation/Background: The Proposed Strategic Initiatives for Improved DNS Security, Stability and Resiliency (SSR) [PDF, 177 KB] paper presents the rationale, key features and projected costs of two strategic initiatives that ICANN believes are necessary to fulfill its obligations under its Bylaws, the 2009 Affirmation of Commitments, and the 2010-2013 ICANN Strategic Plan. This paper provides a basis for a multi-stakeholder discussion of these proposed initiatives, ICANN's responsibilities in establishing proposed capabilities and how the community might proceed in organizing efforts to support such initiatives.

Note: The Strategic Initiatives paper and accompanying Global DNS-CERT Business Case are proposed as efforts beyond those which are currently identified for Security, Stability and Resiliency in the FY 11 ICANN Operational Plan and Budget framework to be posted for the Nairobi meeting. ICANN is seeking public comment on these documents in order to obtain community feedback. An open consultation session is also planned for the ICANN Nairobi meeting and details will be made available on the overall meeting schedule. Translations of the Strategic Initiatives paper into the 5 UN languages will be made available in the next week.
