    Resolved (2017.11.02.04), that the Board appoints Bobby Flaim to the SSAC for a three-year term beginning immediately upon approval of the Board & ending on 31 December 2020.

    Rationale for Resolutions 2017.11.02.02 – 2017.11.02.04

    According to Section 12.2(b) of the ICANN Bylaws, the ICANN Board of Directors shall appoint the Chair & the members of the Security & Stability Advisory Committee (SSAC). The SSAC has completed its selection process for the role of Chair & requests Board consideration of the appointment of Rod Rasmussen as the SSAC Chair.

    The SSAC is a diverse group of individuals whose expertise in specific subject matters enables the SSAC to fulfill its charter & execute its mission. Since its inception, the SSAC has invited individuals with deep knowledge & experience in technical & security areas that are critical to the security & stability of the Internet’s naming & address allocation systems.

    The SSAC’s continued operation as a competent body is dependent on the accumulation of talented subject matter experts who have consented to volunteer their time & energies to the execution of the SSAC mission.

    Bobby Flaim is well known for his tenure with the US Federal Bureau of Investigation. He has been a member of the GAC & the Public Safety Working Group. He has been actively working to reduce abuse & crime related to the DNS. Earlier this year, Bobby Flaim left government employment and assumed a role in Amazon Web Services Security. The SSAC believes that Bobby Flaim will bring important skills and breadth of experience to the Committee.

    ICANN’s mission is to ensure the stable & secure operation of the Internet’s unique identifier systems, & the appointment of SSAC members assists in fulling this mission. This Board action is in the public interest as it contributes to the commitment of the ICANN organization to strengthen the security, stability, & resiliency of the DNS.

  • Outsource Service Provider Contract Extension

    Whereas, ICANN organization Engineering & Information Technology Department has a need for continued third-party development, quality assurance & content management support to augment IT capacity.

    Whereas, there is a need to complete a full Request for Proposal process prior entering into a new contract needed to augment IT capacity.

    Whereas, Zensar has provided good services in software engineering, quality assurance and content management over the last 30+ months.

    Whereas, additional time is needed to complete the necessary RFP process.

    Resolved (2107.11.02.05), the Board authorizes the President and CEO, or his designee(s), to extend the existing Zensar contract, on the same terms, for a period not to exceed four months, at a cost not to exceed [REDACTED FOR NEGOTIATION PURPOSES].

    Resolved (2017.11.02.06), specific items within this resolution shall remain confidential for negotiation purposes pursuant to Article III, section 5.2 of the ICANN Bylaws until the President & CEO determines that the confidential information may be released.

    Rationale for Resolutions 2017.11.02.05 – 2017.11.02.06

    ICANN organization’s Engineering & IT departments have used Zensar to support all development, quality assurance and content management needs since November 2014. This relationship has been beneficial to ICANN & overall has been a success.

    The current three-year contract expires in November 2017. To do full due diligence & ensure that ICANN is using the optimal provider for future needs, the Board agrees that ICANN should perform a new Request for Proposal (RFP) with a small number of outsource providers. While this process has already started, ICANN organization needs additional time to adequately complete the RFP process.

    Zensar is currently in the process of setting up an onshore facility in a low-cost area. This is expected to be activated by Q1 2018. This facility may be useful to ICANN in augmenting the offshore resources while containing costs. Delaying the renewal of or issuance of a new contract will allow ICANN organization to evaluate this option.

    Performing a RFP will also provide ICANN leverage as it negotiates new rates with Zensar should the organization decide to continue working with Zensar.

    Taking this step is in the public interest to ensure that ICANN organization is utilizing the right third party providers, & to ensure that it is maximizing available resources in a cost efficient and effective manner. Accordingly, taking this decision is also consistent with ICANN’s mission, as this action will help ensure that ICANN organization has the appropriate support to fulfill numerous aspects of its mission.

    This action will have a fiscal impact on the organization, but that impact has already been anticipated & is covered in the FY18 budget. This action will not impact the security, stability & resiliency of the domain name system.

    This decision is an Organizational administrative function for which public comment is not required.

  • June 2019 ICANN Policy Forum Venue Contracting

    Whereas, ICANN organization intends to hold its June 2019 Policy Forum in the Africa region.

    Whereas, ICANN organization has completed a thorough review of the proposed venues in Africa & finds the one in Marrakech, Morocco to be the most suitable.

    Resolved (2017.11.02.07), the Board authorizes the President and CEO, or his designee(s), to engage in & facilitate all necessary contracting & disbursements for the host venue for the June 2019 ICANN Policy Forum in Marrakech, Morocco, in an amount not to exceed [REDACTED FOR NEGOTIATION PURPOSES].

    Resolved (2017.11.02.08), specific items within this resolution shall remain confidential for negotiation purposes pursuant to Article III, section 5.2 of the ICANN Bylaws until the President and CEO determines that the confidential information may be released.

    Rationale for Resolutions 2017.11.02.07 – 2017.11.02.08

    As part of ICANN’s Public Meeting and Policy Forum schedule, presently three times a year, ICANN hosts a meeting in a different geographic region (as defined in the ICANN Bylaws). ICANN65, scheduled for 24-27 June 2019, is to occur in the Africa geographic region. A call for recommendations for the location of the meeting in Africa was posted on 15 July 2016. Various parties sent proposals to ICANN.

    ICANN organization performed a thorough analysis of the proposals, as well as other venues, & prepared a paper to identify those that met the Meeting Location Selection Criteria (see http://meetings.icann.org/location-selection-criteria[1]). Based on the proposals & analysis, ICANN organization has identified Marrakech, Morocco as the location for ICANN65.

    The Board reviewed ICANN organization’s briefing for hosting the meeting in Marrakech, Morocco & the determination that the proposal met the significant factors of the Meeting Location Selection Criteria, as well as the related costs for the facilities selected, for the June 2019 ICANN Policy Forum.

    Taking this action is in the public interest, as conducting Public Meetings and Policy Forums is consistent with, & in support of, ICANN’s mission, commitments & core values, as it allows all interested parties to come together and create policy as a multistakeholder organization.

    There will be a financial impact on ICANN in hosting the meeting & providing travel support as necessary, as well as on the community in incurring costs to travel to the meeting. But such impact would be faced regardless of the location & venue of the meeting. This action will have no impact on the security, stability or resiliency of the domain name system.

    The Board thanks all who recommended sites for ICANN65.

    This is an Organizational Administrative function that does not require public comment.

  • SSAC Advisory on the Use of Emoji in Domains

    Whereas, on 25 May 2017, the ICANN Security & Stability Advisory Committee (SSAC) published SAC 095: Advisory on the Use of Emoji in Domain names.

    Whereas, the SSAC report noted that emoji are disallowed by the current technical standards for Internationalized Domains (IDNs); that many emoji are visually similar causing difficulty in distinguishing them with additional confusability created by their composition & modification; & that their use can exacerbate the existing universal acceptance challenges.

    Whereas, the SSAC report concluded that emoji should not be included in TLD labels & strongly discouraged the registration of any domain name that includes emoji in any of its labels.

    Whereas, the use of IDNs in a way that adheres to relevant standards & promotes security by reducing confusability is a topic of importance to ICANN & the intercontinental Internet community.

    Resolved (2017.11.02.09), the Board hereby directs that conformance to IDNA2008 and its successor will continue to be a necessary condition to determine valid IDN TLD labels.

    Resolved (2017.11.02.10), the Board requests that the Country Code Names Supporting Organization (ccNSO) & the Generic Names Supporting Organization (GNSO) engage with the SSAC to more fully understand the risks & consequences of using a domain name that includes emoji in any of its labels, & inform their respective communities about these risks.

    Resolved (2017.11.02.11), the Board requests that the ccNSO and GNSO integrate conformance with IDNA2008 & its successor into their relevant policies so as to safeguard security, stability, resiliency & interoperability of domains.

    Resolved (2017.11.02.12), the Board directs the ICANN CEO, or his designee(s), to engage with gTLD & ccTLD communities on the findings & recommendations in SAC095.

    Rationale for Resolutions 2017.11.02.09 – 2017.11.02.12

    There has been community interest in the use of emoji in domain names and some country code Top Level Domains (ccTLDs) allow domains with emoji to be registered at the second level, & several registrars accept labels with emoji for registrations in other TLDs. The SSAC has analyzed the use of emoji for domain names and published the findings in the SAC 095 advisory as a response to this analysis. Based on their findings, the SSAC recommends not allowing the use of emoji in TLDs, & discourages their use in a domain name in any of its labels. The SSAC also advises registrants of domains with emoji that such domains may not function consistently or may not be universally accessible.

    The Board has acknowledged the advice and confirmed its understanding of the SSAC advice on 18 August 2017, which is noted in the Board Advice Register.1 The Board is now at the phase of taking action on the advice.

    The ICANN Board has reviewed IDNA 2008 (RFCs 5890-5893) & the SAC 095 advisory published by the SSAC as a background for the current resolution. The Board notes that the emoji are disallowed by IDNA2008. The Board notes the discussion in the advisory that though humans can use emoji while communicating, even with the confusability associated with use of emoji, these characters are not suitable for the exact-match system like the DNS. Their use in domains can create security problems for end-users. Furthermore, adding emoji to domain name labels will worsen the universal acceptance of IDNs and may reduce acceptability of non-ASCII labels, perceived as being confusing or insecure.

    IDNA 2008 is the relevant standard for defining valid IDN labels. SSAC’s recommendation is based on the fact that emoji, being categorized as symbols by the Unicode standard, are systematically disallowed by the IDNA2008. Further, emoji are not designed to be visually uniform or visually distinguishable. As a result, a user can be exposed to problems of confusability because code points seem visually the same or too similar. In addition, a user can also face accessibility problems, due to inconsistent rendering. This confusability in using emoji in domain name labels is further increased because emoji modification & composition allows for a potentially much larger set with even greater rendering variation & potential for ambiguous interpretation. As an example, the following shades may be difficult to reliably distinguish by users in small sizes & across multiple platforms:

    Emoji Renderings

    Given these considerations, the Board first directs that conformance to IDNA2008 & its successor will continue to be a necessary condition to determine valid IDN TLD labels.

    The Board recognizes that mandating labels beyond the top level is out of the policy remit of the ccNSO. However, in this case the ccNSO could play a role in promoting the use of standards developed by the technical community at the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) for the secure, stable and interoperable use of Internet identifiers, similar to what it did in the case of discouraging the use of wildcards. Thus, the Board requests that the ccNSO & GNSO engage with the SSAC to more fully understand the risks & consequences of using a domain name that includes emoji in any of its labels, & inform their respective communities about these risks. Furthermore, the Board requests that the ccNSO & GNSO integrate conformance with IDNA2008 & its successor into their relevant policies so as to safeguard security, stability, resiliency and interoperability of domains.

    Finally, the Board recognizes that ICANN organization should engage with gTLD & ccTLD communities on the findings & recommendations of SAC095.

    ICANN’s mission is to ensure the stable & secure operation of the Internet’s unique identifier systems, & addressing advice from the SSAC assists in fulling this mission. Taking this action is in the public interest as it contributes to the commitment of the ICANN organization to strengthen the security, stability, & resiliency of the DNS.

    This action is not anticipated to have a fiscal impact on the organization that has not already been anticipated in the budget. This action is intended to have a positive impact on the security, stability & resiliency of the domain name system.

    This decision is an Organizational administrative function for which public comment is not required.

  • Revised Board Committee & Leadership Selection Procedures

    Whereas, the Board Committee & Leadership Selection Procedures document was previously updated & approved by the Board on 26 June 2009.

    Whereas, the Board Governance Committee has reviewed & revised the previously adopted Board Committee & Leadership Selection Procedures.

    Resolved (2017.11.02.13), the revised Board Committee and Leadership Selection Procedures are approved.

    Rationale for Resolution 2017.11.02.13

    As part of its responsibilities, the Board Governance Committee (BGC) is tasked with “[c]reating & recommending to the full Board for approval a slate of nominees for Board Chair, Board Vice Chair, & chairmanship and membership of each Board Committee, including filling any vacancies which may occur in these positions during the year.” (BGC Charter[2], § II.C.)

    In this role, the BGC recommended, & the Board agrees, that Board approve revisions to the Board Committee & Leadership Selection Procedures, which was previously updated by the Board on 26 June 2009, to align with current selection practices.

    The action is consistent with ICANN’s mission and is in the public interest as it is important to ensure that procedures for Board Committee and leadership selection are up to date & reflect current practices.

    This decision will have no direct fiscal impact on the organization & no impact on the security, stability or resiliency of the domain name system.

    This decision is an Organizational administrative function for which public comment is not required.

  • Revisions to Board Committee Charters as Part of Process to Standardize Committee Charters

    Whereas, the Board Governance Committee (BGC) is tasked with “periodically review[ing] the charters of the Board Committees, including its own charter and work with the members of the Board Committees to develop recommendations to the Board for any charter adjustments deemed advisable.” (BGC Charter, § II.C.2[3].)

    Whereas, the BGC has recommended that Board approve revisions to various sections of the charters of the Audit Committee, the Compensation Committee, the Executive Committee, the Finance Committee, the Governance Committee, the Organizational Effectiveness Committee & Risk Committee.

    Resolved (2017.11.02.14), the Board hereby adopts the revised Charter of the Board Audit Committee[4].

    Resolved (2017.11.02.15), the Board hereby adopts the revised Charter of the Board Compensation Committee[5].

    Resolved (2017.11.02.16), the Board hereby adopts the revised Charter of the Board Executive Committee[6].

    Resolved (2017.11.02.17), the Board hereby adopts the revised Charter of the Board Finance Committee[7].

    Resolved (2017.11.02.18), the Board hereby adopts the revised Charter of the Board Governance Committee[8].

    Resolved (2017.11.02.19), the Board hereby adopts the revised Charter of the Board Organizational Effectiveness Committee[9].

    Resolved (2017.11.02.20), the Board hereby adopts the revised Charter of the Board Risk Committee[10].

    Rationale for Resolutions 2017.11.02.14 – 2017.11.02.20

    The Board is addressing this matter to ensure committee charters are up-to-date & reflect the most current needs of the organization, in accordance with governance requirements & best practices.

    As part of its responsibilities, the BGC is tasked with “periodically review[ing] the charters of the Board Committees, including its own charter and work with the members of the Board Committees to develop recommendations to the Board for any charter adjustments deemed advisable.” (BGC Charter, § II.C.2[11].) In this role, the BGC recommended, and the Board agrees, that Board approve revisions to the Committee charters of the as part of the process of standardizing certain provisions of Board Committee charters.

    The BGC further recommended, & the Board agrees, that the Board approve revisions to the Purpose & Responsibilities sections of the Board Risk Committee (BRC) charter to clarify the BRC’s role as the committee responsible for the assessment & oversight of policies implemented by ICANN designed to manage ICANN’s risk profile.

    The BGC further recommended, & the Board agrees, that the Board approve the proposed amendment to the Scope of Responsibilities sections of the BGC charter to further clarify its role in coordinating Board priorities and their associated deliverables, & monitoring progress against the set priorities.

    This action is consistent with ICANN’s mission & is in the public interest as it is important to ensure that the Board has the necessary Committees, properly tasked with responsibilities, to ensure oversight over the ICANN organization, as the Board deems appropriate. There will be no direct fiscal impact or adverse ramifications on ICANN’s strategic & operating plans from the proposed changes to the charters.

    There are no security, stability or resiliency issues relating to the DNS as the result of this action.

    This decision is an Organizational Administrative Function that does not require public comment.
