Universal Acceptance of IDN TLDs

between the ccNSO and GNSO councils, and extended (ccNSO: 
http://ccnso.icann.org/workinggroups/minutes-council-23aug11-en.pdf | GNSO: 
http://gnso.icann.org/resolutions/#201107) to complete its work on the 3

thanks to Jothan Frakes for his contributions in proactively reaching beyond 
the ICANN community to address issues identified in the report.
     3.       The GNSO Council recognizes that further work needs to be done in 
relation to IDNs, in particular IDN variants and universal acceptance of IDNs 
and asks the JIG to put forward suggestions on how to deal with these issues 
and deliver these suggestions to the GNSO Council by the ICANN Singapore 
Meetings in March 2014.

2. Motion to adopt the Final Report of the  joint DNS stability and security 
analysis Working Group (DSSA)

1.         The joint DNS Security and Stability Analysis working group was 
established by the participating Supporting Organizations and Advisory 
Committees ALAC, ccNSO, GNSO and NRO to better understand the security and 
stability of the global domain name system (DNS) in 2011. 

2.         In October 2011 the ICANN Board of Directors established the Board 
DNS Risk Management Framework Working Group (DNS RMF WG), with the objective to 
oversee the 
development of a risk management framework and system for the DNS as it 
pertains to ICANN's role as defined in the ICANN Bylaws.

3.         At the time the DSSA published its draft Report Phase 1 (August 
2012), the DSSA went into hibernation to avoid overlap with the work of the 
Board DNS RMF and noted and 
informed the participating SO's and AC's that in order to reflect the changed 
environment and working method, the charter of the DSSA would need to be 
updated to reflect these changes.

4.         The co-chairs of the DSSA WG have sent a letter 
(http://gnso.icann.org/en/correspondence/dssa-to-so-ac-chairs-09nov13- en.pdf) 
to the chairs of each of the participating stakeholder organizations to submit 
the Final Report and the work products contained in it 
(available at: http://ccnso.icann.org/workinggroups/dssa-final-08nov13-en.pdf). 
This letter outlines the reasons the co-chairs recommend not proceeding with 
phase 2.

5.         The DSSA recommends the acceptance of the Final Report and further 
recommends that the Final Report be disseminated to registry operators and 
registrars for their consideration.  

6.         Upon adoption of the Final report of the DSSA, and notification of 
adoption to the co-chairs of the DSSA, the working group will be closed. 


1.         The GNSO Council adopts the Report submitted by the co-chairs of the 
DSSA WG, as the Final Report of the DSSA WG in accordance with section 2.4 of 
its charter.

2.         The chair of the GNSO Council is requested to inform the co-chairs 
of the DSSA WG of adoption of the Report by the GNSO Council. 

3.         The chair of GNSO Council is also requested to inform the chairs of 
the other participating SO's and AC's (SSAC, ALAC, ccNSO and NRO). 

4.         Finally, the GNSO Council thanks and congratulates all, and in 
particular the co-chairs of the WG: 
Olivier Crepin- LeBlond (ALAC), Joerg Schweiger (.DE, ccNSO), Mikey O'Connor 
(GNSO), James Galvin (SSAC) and Mark Kosters (NRO) and all volunteers and staff 
who helped with this effort.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you.
Kind regards,

Glen de Saint Géry
