*Brief Description (max 250 words) ****

“The DNS and the IoT: opportunities, risks, and challenges” is a proposed
high-interest session at ICANN67 that enables community members to learn
and advance their thinking on: (1) the opportunities, risks, and challenges
resulting from the interaction of the DNS and the IoT and (2) the potential
role of ICANN and the ICANN community in this space.

*Rationale/Desired Outcomes ****

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to make our lives easier and our
societies safer, smarter, and more sustainable through tens of billions of
connected devices that passively and autonomously sense and act upon our
physical environment [1]. While this makes the IoT vastly different from
traditional interactive Internet applications like email and web browsing,
many IoT devices will use the Domain Name System (DNS) to locate the remote
services they need, for example to offload the analysis of sensor data [2].

The SSAC recently published SAC105 [3], a report that discusses
opportunities, risks, and challenges of the interaction between the DNS and
the IoT. The proposed high-interest session at ICANN67 would give further
substance to the dialogue that SAC105 aims to trigger and facilitate,
specifically by enabling community members from all constituencies to
discuss the topic with subject matter experts (e.g., from the DNS, IoT, and
ISP communities) as well as with each other. The session would be a
follow-up of the ccNSO session on SAC105 at the Montreal meeting, which had
a particular focus on ccTLDs.

The DNS-and-the-IoT session at ICANN67 is relevant in light of ICANN’s
2021-2025 strategic plan [4], which includes the strategic goal to “Improve
assessment of and responsiveness to new technologies which impact the
security, stability, and resiliency of the Internet’s unique identifier
systems by greater engagement with relevant parties.”

Learning goals (desired outcome)
---------------------------------------------
At the end of the session, ICANN community members will:
• Better understand how the IoT differs from traditional interactive
Internet applications and how it uses the DNS and domain names
• Better understand how DNS and IoT players think of the interaction
between their two ecosystems in terms of opportunities, risks, and
challenges
• Have acquired building blocks to advance their thinking on the role that
the ICANN community could potentially play in this space

*Session Format ****

1. Introduction (session chair, 15 minutes):
a. Rationale and desired outcome of the session
b. Explain SAC105 model of the IoT and how IoT deployments use the DNS
c. Live demo to illustrate these interactions (using the SPIN IoT
visualizer)

2. Sharing perspectives (panellists, 30 minutes): presentations on
opportunities, risks, and challenges from different perspectives, in
particular:
a. DNS operators
b. IoT device manufacturers
c. ISPs/network operators

3. Interactive discussion and Q&A (45 minutes)

*Session Leaders/Facilitators ****

We expect 4 people on the panel: a session chair to provide a general
introduction and 3 subject matter experts (a DNS operator, an IoT device
manufacturer, and an ISP/network operator). We will ask other relevant
experts to respond from the audience. The session chair will introduce both
the panellists as well as the experts in the audience.

Table 1 provides an overview of the relevant roles for the session,
potential candidates, and if they’re on the panel (P) or in the audience
(A).

Session chair (P) Cristian Hesselman (.nl) SSAC, ccNSO
DNS operator (P) Jacques Latour (.ca) SSAC, ccNSO
ISP/network operator (P) Lise Fuhr (ETNO) -
IoT device manufacturer (P) Howard Benn (ETSI, Samsung) Tech Liaisons Group
Resolver operator (A) Warren Kumari (Google) SSAC

IoT software/OS developer (A) TBD -
Standardization/policy body (A) TBD -
Government (A) TBD GAC
Research (A) KC Claffy (CAIDA) SSAC

*Community Interest ****

We expect a significant interest from the community based on the talk at
the ccNSO session at ICANN66. Also, we previously received positive
responses from the ALAC on SAC105, although we expect that only a few
people actually read the report.
