Luxembourg, Luxembourg and Mexico City, Mexico – 02 March 2009
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The DotSport consortium announced today that his founder, Patrick Vande Walle, has been appointed to the Security and Stability Advisory Committee of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).
The Security and Stability Advisory Committee advises the ICANN community and Board on matters relating to the security and integrity of the Internet’s naming and address allocation systems. This includes operational matters (e.g., matters pertaining to the correct and reliable operation of the root name system), administrative matters (e.g., matters pertaining to address allocation and Internet number assignment), and registration matters (e.g., matters pertaining to registry and registrar services such as WHOIS). SSAC engages in ongoing threat assessment and risk analysis of the Internet naming and address allocation services to assess where the principal threats to stability and security lie, and advises the ICANN community accordingly.
“I am honoured to be chosen to join this esteemed group of security experts”, commented Patrick Vande Walle. “This is in line with our commitment to make the Internet a safer place both for business and for leisure. On the Internet just like in a sport stadium, you have to play by the rules. And if you don’t, there are referees to stop you.”
DotSport is a start-up company in Luxembourg, Luxembourg which will submit in a few months a proposal to ICANN to create a .sport top level domain, aiming to build an Internet community for the many groups and individuals interested in sport.
