DSSA — DNS Security and Stability Analysis working group

I’ve been spending a fair amount of time working on an ICANN cross-constituency working group that’s taking a look at the risks to the DNS.  Our gang just posted a major report today and I thought I’d splash this up here so I can brag about our work on Twitter and Facebook.

That first picture is a summary of the methodology we built (we had to build a lot of stuff in order to get our work done).  It’s basically a huge compound sentence that you read from left to right in order to assess risk.  By the way, click on the pictures if they’re too small/fuzzy to read.

This second picture shows where we, the DSSA gang might fit in a much larger DNS security context.  We also had a lot of stuff to puzzle through about where we “fit” in the larger DNS security landscape.

And that last picture is a super high-level summary of what we found.  There’s lots more ideas and pictures in our report — but these three give you kindof a taste of what we’ve been working on.  I think it’s darn nifty.

If you’re interested in the whole scoop, head over to the DSSA web site.  You’ll find links to the full report, a cool Excel worksheet that crams the whole methodology on to one page (complete with scoring) and more.
