Root Server System Advisory Committee Jun Murai, Chair of RSSAC/ICANN Director ICANN Public meeting July'15, 2000 Pacifico, Yokohama The DNS Tree (graphic) Slide 3 (Text from Slide 3 follows) Semantics of TLDs Which TLD should be added/deleted? Who own that specific TLD? ICANN/IANA | | | Who and Where are the | (new) root servers? V 1. Update the database 2. Share the database among the distributed root servers 3. Make it available to everyone IANA/Root Server Operators Extracts from ICANN Bylaws To advise the Board about the operation of the root name servers of the domain name system. To advise the Board on the operational requirements of root name servers, including host hardware capacities, operating systems and name server software versions, network connectivity and physical environment. To examine and to advise on the security aspects of the root name server system. To review the number, location, and distribution of root name servers considering the total system performance, robustness, and reliability.

For possible transition With secure, robust and reliable manner Transparent to users Agreed with existing operators. "When" is subject to operational readiness of the new structure and to the final contract for change Operational requirements RFC2010 "Operational Criteria for Root Name Servers" by Bill Manning and Paul Vixie RFC2870 "Root Name Server Operational Requirements" by Bush, Karrenberg, Kosters and Plzak IETF DNSOP Working group Since March 1999 Root Server Operation co-chaired by Lars-Johan Liman and Ray Plzak Add/delete of the root namer servers Operational requirements: done RFC2870 Measurement and Analysis for extend/change the root name servers. Work initiated by Evi Nemeth, Univ. of Colorado Jointly working with CAIDA Slide 12 (graphic) Slide 13 (graphic) "Y2K" Y2K (graphic) Other issues on agenda Financial sources of the root server operators IPv6 Multilingual domain name impacts Stability, reliability and security: DNSSEC Y2K Brittle Making a -CLEAN- tree of DNS reverse zones. Checking the accuracy of DNS delegation, we aim to make a clean DNS tree.
