In mid May, ICANN published a draft statement of its role and remit in the security, stability and resiliency of the Internet’s unique identifiers. After the ICANN meeting in Prague, the public comment period was extended until 31 August 2012. While a number of comments have been submitted, it would be helpful to hear from a broader spectrum of the community on this draft statement.
The statement is intended to be a clear description of ICANN’s technical mission, and a high level view of what ICANN does and does not do in SSR. Although this language is present in many ICANN documents, it can be difficult to find and digest.
The document is a work in progress, and will be updated based on the inputs received in Prague and in the comment forum. Please read it and provide us with your suggestions on ICANN’s role and remit in SSR by commenting in the URL linked at the top of this post. We want to hear from you!
