Thanks Adam, Mikey, Steve and others for drafting this excellent piece.  I
have but one issue with it.  I suggest changing this sentence, which follows
the numbering of the 3 issues:  


The BC recognizes the narrow scope of ICANN's technical coordination role,
but this should not be relied upon to limit participation in coordinated
efforts to combat malicious DNS activity.  


I do not think the BC should be recognizing any "narrow scope" of ICANN's
role, at least not without defining what we mean.  Instead, I propose this:


ICANN's Bylaws require it "to ensure the stable and secure operation" of the
DNS.  Therefore, ICANN must view participation in coordinated, industry
efforts to combat malicious DNS as absolutely essential to that mission.

As discussed on yesterday's BC member call, this is "last call" on SSR.

(Security, Stability and Resiliency) review team issues.

Adam Palmer's draft circulated 24-Mar.

Mikey O'Connor circulated edits 25-Mar

Awaiting reaction from members and Adam on Mikey's markup. (attached)

ICANN's Affirmation of Commitments required a community review of DNS
Security Stability & Resiliency (SSR).   The SSR Review Team is now
gathering public input on the set of issues it proposes for this review. 


Attached is a discussion draft for BC submission, prepared by Adam Palmer.  


Several of the 11 issues in this draft are empty - some because answers are
given elsewhere in the draft; rest are blank because Adam wanted to leave
room for other BC members to add their security expertise! 


The Review Team is seeking responses by 6-April, so today (24-March) begins
our 14-day review period for this discussion draft.


Please review and post your suggestions/edits as soon as possible.   If
there are no disagreements noted by 1-April, these comments will be adopted
without a voting period, and posted to ICANN on 6-April.


As always, BC members are also encouraged to submit their own responses and
to share those with the BC list.


For topic background, see


Thanks again to Adam for volunteering to do this discussion draft.  


And thanks to Jeff Brueggeman for serving on the SSR Review Team.



Steve DelBianco

Vice chair for policy coordination
