Meeting summary
The ICANN SSR Subgroup had a very productive two-day, fact-finding meeting at ICANN headquarters in Los Angeles. The subgroup met with a number of ICANN staff subject matter experts and discussed a range of issues relating to the completeness and effectiveness of ICANN’s security processes and the effectiveness of the ICANN security framework (including activities connected to the SSR2 Terms of Reference<https://community.icann.org/display/SSR/Terms+of+Reference> and implementation of SSR1 recommendations). Topics were covered to varying degrees of detail as warranted; some topics were covered sufficiently and some will require follow-on discussions.
The subgroup reviewed, submitted questions & information requests about, and discussed early observations about:

  *   ICANN’s Security Framework and emerging threats
  *   ICANN’s Risk Management Framework
  *   ICANN’s Business Continuity strategies, objectives, plans and procedures
  *   ICANN’s operational planning and controls, and prioritized activity recovery strategy
  *   ICANN’s Incident Response Structure
  *   ICANN’s root server operations
  *   ICANN’s Global Domains Division activities that relate to SSR objectives, including:
     *   New gTLD program SSR-related safeguards
     *   Emergency Back-End Registry Operator (EBERO), and related processes, and testing
     *   Registry Data Escrow (RyDE) program and Data Escrow Agents (DEA)
     *   Centralized Zone Data Service (CZDS) compliance, failures, plans
     *   Vetting of registrar and registry operators as relates to SSR, and measurement & impact of malicious conduct by contracted parties, databreaches, etc.
     *   SLA Monitoring System (SLAM)
     *   Abuse reports, including SADAG and DAAR (Statistical Analysis of DNS Abuse & Domain Abuse Activity Reporting)
     *   SSR objectives in ICANN’S standard operating procedures (SOP).
