On Behalf Of Neuman, Jeff

Subject: [REGYCON] Nomination of Rodney Joffe for SSR




With the resignation of Ken Silva from the SSR team, Neustar would like
to nominate Rodney Joffe for consideration by the RySG for endorsement
to the SSR Team.  Rodney is a senior vice president with Neustar whose
responsibilities include defining and guiding the technical direction of
the company's Internet Infrastructure Services Group as well as heading
the company's cybersecurity initiatives. If you recall, Rodney initially
put his name in to serve on the SSR Team from the GNSO, but pulled his
name out from consideration by the gTLD Registries so as to not compete
with Ken Silva from VeriSign for the gTLD Registries endorsement.  He
then put his name forward for endorsement from the ccNSO (who in turn
did endorse Rodney along with a couple of other ccTLDs).  Our
understanding was that Rodney was not selected by Rod/Heather because
approving Rodney (despite his qualifications) would have put too many
Americans on the Review Team.  


As many of you know, Rodney is one of the Premiere global experts on DNS
and the inventor of UltraDNS (acquired by Neustar in 2006). Rodney is
frequently called upon to assist Federal Authorities with regards to
investigating and protecting against cyber-crime and cyber-terrorist
activities where he is a recognized expert.  He regularly briefs the
White House and House/Senate groups on the subject, and has testified
before congress as an expert. In addition to publishing a number of
confidential papers in the field, he participated as a "Designated
Trusted Agent" on the planning committee for the DHS's CyberStorm II
International Cyber-Terrorism exercise in March 2008.  He also
participated in CyberStorm III as a lead on the core scenario design


Besides these operational activities, Rodney is also active in Internet
governance bodies, serving currently on the ICANN SSAC (Security and
Stability Advisory Committee) and previously on both the ICANN RSTEP
(Registry Services Technical Evaluation Panel) the ICANN NOMCOM
(Nominating Committee) where he served three terms. He is a founding
member of the Advisory Board of the Postel Center at USC/ISI, and is
engaged in several Internet engineering organizations including OARC
(Operations, Analysis, and Research Center), NANOG (North American
Network Operators' Group), ARIN (American Registry for Internet
Numbers), and the IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force). He holds a
number of issued and pending patents in the network security field.


Attached is a CV for Rodney.  We are gathering the appropriate forms to
formally submit his name.

Thank you for your consideration of Neustar's nomination.
