This NCAP wiki is a collaborative workspace for the Name Collision Analysis Project Work Party "WP." Please contact ssac-staff@icann.org regarding this workspace.

The proposed SSAC study is intended to facilitate the development of policy on Collision Strings to mitigate potential harm to the stability and security of the DNS posed by delegation of such strings. ICANN Security and Stability Advisory Committee SSAC is producing a project plan for Name Collision Analysis Project (NCAP). It details their approach for studying name collision in response to the ICANN Board’s request in Resolutions 2017.11.02.29 - 2017.11.02.31. The SSAC has received the community input on the draft project plan and published the Public Comment Summary and Analysis Report
