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.
