NTIA Acts to Protect Internet Stability and Security
The National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) announced that they have taken an essential step for safeguarding the future of the internet. Specifically, NTIA released a Statement of Principles regarding the internet's Domain Name and Addressing System (DNS).

The agency announced that US will "maintain its historic role in authorizing changes or modifications to the authoritative root zone file." This continuing federal oversight role will help protect the interests of internet stakeholders not only in the US but also around the world.

Other key Principles enunciated by NTIA include an ongoing US commitment to "market-based approaches and private sector leadership in Internet development...."

NTIA's statement represents a continuation of the policies that have helped propel the internet into a dynamic platform that is the bedrock of global communications and commerce.
