    Security Verisign/NSI
    Another Report Missing in Action
    posted by michael on Thursday February 26 2004, @04:15AM

    Free2Innovate.net asks a reasonable question,

    As VeriSign continues to make noises about relaunching the controversial Site Finder service, it's worth asking: Where is it?

    "It" being the comprehensive review of Domain Name System wildcards the Internet community promised by Dr. Stephen Crocker, chairman of ICANN's Standing Committee on Security and Stability, during a public forum on Oct. 30, 2003.

    Where is it?

    SECSAC's "background materials" web page hasn't been updated since Oct. 14, 2003. It's not there. Nor is it on ICANN's special web page devoted to all things Site Finder.

    Where is the report we were promised? Has SECSAC completed it? Will they release it?

    I'd like to know too.

    ICANN going against consensus? Say it isn't so!

    The current first item on google's news spew is entitled:

    VeriSign Likely To Earn ICANN Approval for Wait-Listing Domains [technewsworld.com]

    It goes on to provide not much evidence for such a statement, but still...

    Given ICANN's erratic behaviour, including numerous examples of toadying to VeriSign (EG: the .net divestiture), and given their open and transparent secret backroom dealings (EG: the .net divestiture), one can be forgiven for accepting this as prophecy.

    I already explained [icannwatch.org] why this is not a Very Good Thing in terms of Security and Stability but, Hey!, if you can make a few dineros before Osama's henchmen crash the net, more power to ya. That's the American way. -g

    These are all fair questions, but I think that whatever the source, the request for the report is a reasonble one.
