I was unable to add my comments on the wiki because the editor does not
load, although I tried several times.
My comment was sent yesterday LACRALO <
lac-discuss-es at atlarge-lists.icann.org> list in spanish, and I copy this
below, with a variant cleared on that list in another mail, in which I
send it deleted the wrong paragraph .
I agree with the draft Salanieta with the observations made by Olivier ,
except the issue of financing , which I agree with Alexander. The word "
sacred " could be changed to " solemn " because it is a solemnity and
compliance is an essential requirement in the process of KSK .
Responsibility regarding the control of TCR , which mentions Alexander on
ensuring transparency , accountability , and defending the Internet users,
and is set to generic point 9 of the Statement of Commitment between the
Department of Commerce U.S. and ICANN , (the first document cited by
Salanieta ) .
Moreover, the entire process of the ceremony itself is a guarantee of
transparency and protection of users . There are strict controls and
detailed in the DNSSEC Practice Statement of the procedure for
accreditation of entry of persons, etc., for the Root Zone Operator (TCR )
, your responsibilities are established and each of the steps you must
follow what is proper documents governing safety at these levels of the
There are also prerequisites for the selection and appointment of the TCR
, instructions for its function.That's part of the technical process of the
company Verisign , specialist in informatic security .
As for the number of TCR , understand that it is reasonable and who
applied for the position, must know and accept their demands were selected
according to rules and monitored compliance with requirements and is
scheduled for the 21 selected will be appointed only some will setected ( 6
or 8) for two ceremonies that simultaneously at different locations each
year in four opportunities . The amount would be more to cover possible
Regarding see major funding strictly maintain the independence of the
process being controlled , between those who are appointed to control the
process and who is responsible of it, in these last ICANN. This, besides
exposing Alexander and there are many whose travel costs that could and
perhaps should be without, given the possibility of remote participation ,
which is not the case of the TCR , which have be physically present .
