Text
Whereas, in resolution 01.117, the Board directed the President to appoint a standing committee on the security and stability of the Internet's naming and address allocation systems ("President's Committee on Security and Stability") and to propose a charter, developed in consultation with the committee, for approval by the Board;

Whereas, the President has appointed Dr. Stephen Crocker as chair of the President's Committee on Security and Stability and has appointed the following persons as members: Alain Aina (Consultant), Jaap Akkerhuis (SIDN), Doug Barton (Yahoo!), Steve Bellovin (AT&T), Rob Blokzijl (RIPE), David Conrad (Nominum), Daniel Karrenberg (RIPE-NCC), Mark Kosters (VeriSign), Allison Mankin (ISI), Ram Mohan (Afilias), Russ Mundy (Network Associates Laboratories), Jun Murai (Keio University), Frederico Neves (registro.br), Ray Plzak (ARIN), Doron Shikmoni (ForeScout, ISOC-IL), Ken Silva (VeriSign), Bruce Tonkin (Melbourne IT), Paul Vixie (ISC), and Rick Wesson (Alice's Registry);
