Second Security, Stability, and Resiliency (SSR2) Review Team Final Report
The SSR Review is a Specific Review mandated by ICANN's Bylaws (Article 4, Section 4.6) to review "ICANN's execution of its commitment to enhance the operational stability, reliability, resiliency, security, and global interoperability of the systems and processes, both internal and external, that directly affect and/or are affected by the Internet's system of unique identifiers that ICANN coordinates." Specific Reviews are crucial to the legitimacy and accountability of ICANN. Specific Reviews serve as ICANN's progress report to the world and demonstrate how ICANN delivers on its commitments and identifies areas where it can improve. Specific Reviews are conducted by members of the stakeholder community who look at past processes, actions, and outcomes in order to make recommendations to improve future performance.
The SSR2 Review Team Final Report contains 63 full consensus recommendations in the following areas:
- SSR1 implementation and intended effects;
- Key stability issues within ICANN;
- Contracts, compliance, and transparency around Domain Name System (DNS) abuse; and
- Additional SSR-related concerns regarding the global DNS.
