Letter to GAO Requesting Review of Administration Proposal Regarding the Future of the Internet


Excerpt: In asking the multi-stakeholder community to generate a transition proposal, NTIA set forth criteria that any acceptable proposal must satisfy: 1) it must support and enhance the multi-stakeholder model; 2) it must maintain the security, stability, and resiliency of the Internet DNS; 3) it must meet the needs and expectations of the global customers and partners of the IANA services; and 4) it must maintain the openness of the Internet. Ensuring that these criteria are met is important to the future of the Internet, but is far from a complete examination of the consequences of NTIA’s proposed action.
