NTIA 決定將 Root Domain 的管理權責轉移到 ICANN

NTIA (National Telecommunications and Information Administration) 決定將 root domain 管理權責移交出來:「NTIA Announces Intent to Transition Key Internet Domain Name Functions」,關於移交的 Q&A 則可以在「IANA Functions and Related Root Zone Management Transition Questions and Answers」這篇讀到。

目前是 NTIA 放出意願,請 ICANN 提出轉移計畫:

As the first step, NTIA is asking the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to convene global stakeholders to develop a proposal to transition the current role played by NTIA in the coordination of the Internet’s domain name system (DNS).

不知道要花多久時間,可能是用幾年的時間轉移。雖然是找 stakeholders,但看起來應該是會由 ICANN 掌握...
