Analysis Group is examiner for ICANN stability committee

The United States-based Analysis Group has been appointed independent examiner for the Security and Stability Advisory Committee Review (SSAC), by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), reports ITRealms.

The selection of an independent examiner, ITRealms gathered, was performed in accordance with ICANN's procurement process, as all submitted proposals were carefully evaluated against selection criteria developed in collaboration with the SSAC.

These include the technical knowledge and expertise; knowledge and understanding of ICANN; Methodology; Independence, including no conflict of interest.

ITRealms reports that the purpose of this review, according to ICANN's Bylaws, Section 4.4, is to determine whether the SSAC has a continuing purpose in the ICANN structure and, if so, whether any change in structure or operations is desirable to improve its effectiveness.
This review will also determine if the SSAC is accountable to its constituencies, stakeholder groups, organizations, and other stakeholders.

Finally, the SSAC Review will assess the effectiveness of the improvements resulting from the previous SSAC Review conducted in 2009-2010.

The review is scheduled to commence immediately and it is anticipated to conclude in November 2018.

ITRealms recalls that the roles of the Security and Stability Advisory Committee (SSAC) advises the ICANN community and Board on matters relating to the security and integrity of the Internet's naming and address allocation systems.

This includes operational, administrative, and registration matters. Just as SSAC engages in ongoing threat assessment and risk analysis of the Internet naming and address allocation services to assess where the principal threats to stability and security lie, and advises the ICANN community accordingly.
