This publication represents the full SSAC input to the Evolving the Governance of the Root Server System ICANN Public Comment Proceeding.

The primary motivation of the SSAC during the review of the proposed Root Server System (RSS) evolution was to ensure that the RSS was adequately positioned for long term sustainability as the RSS is critical to the security and stability of the Domain Name System. The SSAC reviewed the proposed framework in order to assure itself, and others, that the proposed governance structures are capable of identifying issues and responding to them as they arise, including but not limited to issues of technology, policy, operations, or security.
