"/current role played by NTIA in the coordination of the Internet's
domain name system (DNS). NTIA's responsibility includes the procedural
role of administering changes to the authoritative root zone file -- the
database containing the lists of names and addresses of all top-level
domains -- as well as serving as the historic steward of the DNS. NTIA
currently contracts with ICANN to carry out the Internet Assigned
Numbers Authority (IANA) functions and has a Cooperative Agreement with
Verisign under which it performs related root zone management functions./"
Extract from NTIA statement
As some remarked the statement was sometimes followed by fuzzy comments
and wonderful sandcastles,
is there any online document explaining precisely:
- the role played by NTIA in general terms,
- the concrete operations it includes?
The contracts describe precisely Icann and Verisign parts. But what
about the other side?
Sorry if it was already posted.
@+, cheers, Dominique
