Second Security, Stability, and Resiliency (SSR2) Review Team Update
The second Security, Stability, and Resiliency (SSR2) Review Team recently met for three days in Los Angeles.
During the meeting, we completed our assessment of ICANN's implementation of SSR1 recommendations from 2012, and we detailed the scope items for our remaining areas of focus, as guided by ICANN's Bylaws (see Article 4, Section 4.6):
- ICANN's key security, stability, and resiliency activities.
- Activities that impact the SSR of the Domain Name System (that ICANN contributes to/facilitates).
- Challenges to the secure and resilient operation of the unique identifiers system.
As part of the scoping exercise, we also identified additional information needed to advance our work and documented questions for the ICANN organization on each topic. The answers to the questions will help us to develop findings and eventually recommendations.
On the third and final day of the meeting, we revisited our workplan and spent some time looking ahead to our next face-to-face meeting, which will be at ICANN64 in Kobe. While we hoped to have draft recommendations to present to the community in Kobe, we will instead use the face-to-face meeting time to reach consensus on the findings for the remaining three workstreams of our review, and advance the drafting of our report. At ICANN64 we also will hold an engagement session with the community where we will discuss our work to date. We expect to share our draft findings and recommendations with the community at ICANN65 in Marrakech, with a view to publishing our draft final report in August 2019, and then presenting our final report in November 2019 at ICANN66 in Montreal.
Meet with us at ICANN64
