DNS-OARC is pleased to announce we have received a substantial one-off equipment donation from the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).
As well as running twice-yearly workshops, various public benefit tools and inter-member co-operation platforms, OARC operates a number of large-scale data gathering initiatives, which collect data from its members' infrastructure. One of these, initiated in 2004 in co-operation with CAIDA and funded by the NSF, is a "Day in the Life of the Internet"" (DITL). This gathers detailed data-sets of DNS queries to root and top-level DNS operators for a 48-hour period at least once a year.
The DNS-OARC 2013 Annual General Meeting will take place on the 5th of October during the members-only session at the start of OARC's Fall 2013 Workshop, in Chandler, Arizona, USA.
DNS-OARC is pleased to announce that we have received a substantial one-off donation from <a href="http://www.verisign.com">Verisign</a> to assist with OARC development.
This, together with future member meeting sponsorship support as well as higher than expected rates of member upgrades and premium renewals, has allowed us to revise our 2013 budget on a notably increased revenue base.
Verisign's donation is being used for two main purposes:<ul>
