Recommendation DescriptionCurrent Phase
Recommendation 1

Per the ICANN Bylaws, the role of the RSSAC, “is to advise the ICANN community and Board on matters relating to the operation, administration, security, and integrity of the Internet’s Root Server System.”

The RSSAC limits its comments to its remit. With that in mind, the RSSAC supports the following five strategic objectives outlined on the draft strategic plan:

  • Maintain stakeholders’s trust that IANA is the proper home for enabling global interoperability through unique identifier coordination.
  • Monitor and adapt to security threats and ensure resilient and secure IANA operations.
  • Continue to drive the implementation of operational initiatives to enhance the delivery of services based on the needs of the IANA customer.
  • Monitor the delivery and performance of the IANA functions to achieve operational excellence.
  • Support ICANN org on its governance efforts to sustain and improve openness, inclusivity, accountability, and transparency.

In particular, RSSAC welcomes the following goal on the strategic plan as it aligns with RSSAC046: RSSAC Statement on IANA’s Proposal for Future Root Zone KSK Rollovers.
