ICANN Root Server System Advisory Committee (RSSAC) Reports and Advisories, Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) (2021), pp. 8

Abstract

In this report, the ICANN Root Server System Advisory Committee (RSSAC) examines both measurable and subjective activities of a root server operator (RSO) that could be considered rogue to inform future Root Server System (RSS) governance bodies. Future RSS governance bodies may use this document to develop a more complete definition of rogue RSO actions and will ultimately be the authority in determining subjective factors such as intent, when judging the actions of a RSO. The audience of this report is the Board of Directors of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), future root server system governance bodies, and, more broadly, the Internet community
