Resiliency Framework

Dear Dr. Lamb,

Thank you for the opportunity to review this document.  I'm sure we strongly
share an appreciation of the crucial importance of DNSSEC for achieving
ICANN's SSR goals for the world-wide Internet.  I admire the thoughtful
planning and vigorous efforts ICANN has put into its SSR Framework.

What I didn't observe in reading the document was explicit recognition,
appreciation, or elaboration of the expanded security benefits that can be
achieved by leveraging the global chain of trust established by DNSSEC.  I
believe some of these benefits might be of high interest for further
strengthening your SSR objectives.

Recently we were invited to submit comments to NIST on strengthening the
security of the cyber infrastructure.  Secure64's brief submission outlined
some of the beneficial results of leveraging the DNSSEC chain of trust.  We
also suggested a possible series of DNSSEC-based steps for realizing such
security extensions for the cyber infrastructure.  FYI, I have attached a
copy of this short submission to NIST.  (It also is included in the
submitted comments on NIST's web site.)

If you have interest in Secure64's thoughts and efforts in these directions,
we would welcome the opportunity to engage in further discussions.

Best wishes,

CTO Secure64 Software Corp
