Internet Governance: Tit for tat between US Congress and Administration

In a move considered by many to be more political that commonsensical, failed Republican presidential nomination hopeful Ted Cruz yesterday introduced a bill which would, if enacted, allow the United States to keep technical control over the Internet, rather than transitioning it to a global oversight mechanism.

A coalition of technology groups and conservatives wants Congress to sue to stop the Obama administration from handing over control of Internet domain names to an international board, charging it could give authoritarian regimes power over the web.

Cruz, Lee, and Duffy Increase Scrutiny on Obama Administration's Planned Internet Giveaway

U.S. Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Mike Lee (R-Utah), and Rep. Sean Duffy (R-Wis.) today sent a letter to Department of Justice Acting Assistant Attorney General of the Antitrust Division Renata Hesse. The letter expresses concerns regarding ICANN's decision to renew the .com Registry Agreement with a publicly traded company, Verisign, Inc., two years ahead of schedule as part of the Obama administration?s plan to relinquish critical oversight responsibilities concerning ICANN?s management of the Internet. In turn, the Members of Congress request a competition review into the contract agreement.

Congress Should Sue to Pause the IANA Transition

Today, TechFreedom and a coalition of civil society groups and experts urged Congress to protect its ?Power of the Purse? and Internet freedom by temporarily blocking the IANA transition. In a coalition letter to Congressional leaders, the groups express concerns about unresolved questions regarding the Administration?s plan to ?transition? away the U.S. government?s historic role as a backstop guarantor of Internet governance.

Groups Say Transitioning Internet-Naming Agency Would Break Law

Coalition Letter Urging Congress To Sue NTIA and Delay IANA Transition

"We agree that Internet governance should work from the bottom up, driven by the global community of private sector, civil society and technical stakeholders. But that ?multistakeholder? model is fragile. Without robust safeguards, Internet governance could fall under the sway of governments hostile to freedoms protected by the First Amendment. Ominously, governments will gain a formal voting role in ICANN for the first time when the new bylaws are implemented. NTIA has expressed its approval of this expanded role for governments in ICANN."

Putting IPv6 vulnerabilities under the microscope

The IPv6 protocol is more than 20 years old, and it is celebrating an adoption rate of nearly 30% of United States traffic and almost 11% of global traffic. As available address space in IPv4 is depleted, enterprises and small-midsize businesses and individuals are migrating to IPv6, with its much larger address space, to meet the demands of the ever increasingly connected world and to enable the continued growth of the internet.
