conduct the second review on the security, stability and resiliency of the
DNS (https://www.icann.org/news/announcement-2-2017-02-14-en). I was
selected to represent Internet End Users through At-Large Advisory
Committee (ALAC) - https://atlarge.icann.org/alac and Africa Region to the

In March, 2017 we had our First Face-to-Face meeting in Copenhagen, Denmark
and in that meeting, three nominees volunteered themselves for a leadership
position and review team agreed by consensus to leadership by three
co-chairs (https://www.icann.org/news/announcement-2017-03-30-en)

We had held a number of F2F meeting as well as remote meeting to take
forward this work. We met in Madrid, Spain; Johannesburg, South Africa; Abu
Dhabi during ICANN60.

Just few days before the ICANN60 Meeting, ICANN Board release a letter to
pause the operation of ICANN SSR2 RT (
The Board has received and carefully considered advice from the SSAC and
feedback from a number of SO/AC chairs expressing concern about the
composition, process and structure of the Security, Stability and
Resiliency Review (SSR2).

Since, October, 2017 SSR2 RT was in pause mode, and June, 2018 Internet
Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) organization announces
the formal restart of the Second Review of the Security, Stability, and
Resiliency of the Domain Name System (SSR2) with addition of more new
members to the RT (https://www.icann.org/news/announcement-2-2018-06-07-en).
ICANN also appointed Phil Khoury as an external professional to facilitate
the transition process and help the review team in restarting and moving
forward with its work.

Since the un-pause note, the team has held about five online remote meeting
to address various issues related with SSR2 work.

Finally, we are meeting in Washington DC from 22 - 24 August, 2018 in our
first Face-to-Face meeting to take forward our work.

Looking forward working with you all and as always your usual support and
advice will be highly appreciated.
