Public Comment: High Security Zone TLD Final Report

11 March 2011

The High Security Zone TLD (HSTLD) Advisory Group (the "Group") was formed in response to public comment about the importance of implementing measures to mitigate malicious conduct in new gTLDs. An additional impetus for the creation of the Group was a request from representatives of governments and the financial services sector to identify a set of security, stability and resiliency requirements for TLDs whose primary purpose is to offer services where users have an expectation of higher security, particularly those offering financial services.

The Group commenced its effort in December 2009 and worked through February 2010 to study and develop proposed solutions for establishing a High Security Zone TLD Program. During the course of its work, the Group published two status reports for public comment to inform the community of its progress. The first snapshot<http://www.icann.org/en/topics/new-gtlds/hstld-program-snapshot-18feb10-en.pdf> was made available on 22 February 2010 and the second snapshot<http://www.icann.org/en/topics/new-gtlds/hstld-program-snapshot-2-16jun10-en.pdf> was published on 16 June 2010. This Final Report documents the history of the Group's work, how it was conducted in accordance with the Affirmation of Commitments, and consultations it conducted with subject-matter and industry experts. The report also includes descriptions of the shared positions among its members as well as a recommendation for future work that could be done by a community working group c! omprised of a multi-disciplinary team of experts.

ICANN recognizes this independent report is being posted just prior to the Silicon Valley/San Francisco meeting start and this is done so in anticipation that this will be a topic of discussion at this upcoming meeting.

The Final Report may be viewed here<http://www.icann.org/en/topics/new-gtlds/hstld-final-report-11mar11-en.pdf> and public comments may be submitted to hstld-final-report at icann.org<mailto:hstld-final-report at icann.org> through 7 April 2011.
