ICANN releases final report on 'Mitigating the Risk of DNS Namespace Collisions Phase One'


The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) Wednesday announced the publication of the final "Mitigating the Risk of DNS Namespace Collisions Phase One" report by JAS Global Advisors ("JAS").
The JAS study, which was commissioned by ICANN, provides a set of recommendations that describe a comprehensive approach to reducing current and future DNS namespace collisions, alerting operators of potential DNS namespace related issues, and providing emergency response capabilities in the event that critical, for instance life safety, systems are adversely impacted. 

ITRealms gathered that the final Phase One report takes into consideration feedback received during the public comment period that closed on 21 April 2014.

The JAS report, along with additional community feedback and other pertinent data, will be considered prior to providing the ICANN Board New gTLD Program Committee with a proposal to address name collisions for new gTLDs as part of the New gTLD Collision Occurrence Management Plan adopted on 7 October 2013.

ITRealms recalls that a session to discuss this proposal and collect feedback from the community will be held at the ICANN meeting in London on 23 June 2015 at 17:00-18:30 local time.
