Four States are suing to stop the Obama administration from transferring oversight of the internet

The complaint, filed by Republican attorneys general in Arizona, Oklahoma, Nevada and Texas, argues the transfer violates several components of the administration’s statutory authority.
thetruthdivision.com...

The lawsuit from Arizona, Texas, Oklahoma and Nevada seeks a temporary restraining order that would prevent the IANA contract from expiring on September 30. (If or when it expires, IANA, which oversees the world's DNS and IP address allocations, will be completely under ICANN control.) This legal challenge comes the day after an effort to get Congress to block the transition failed.

The attorneys general make five main claims:

The contract is US government property and requires explicit Congressional approval before it can be handed over.
The transition would violate the First Amendment.
The NTIA did not follow the correct public comment procedures.
The NTIA does not have the authority to hand over the contract.
The transition does not properly protect the .gov and .mil top-level domains.

If the transfer takes place – as it is set to do on Oct. 1 -- the suit argues people will “lose the predictability, certainty, and protections that currently flow from federal stewardship of the Internet and instead be subjected to ICANN’s unchecked control.

Relevant ATS Thread;
The US is ready to hand over the internet on Sept. 30

I am glad to see states taking a stand against this. I hope this is enough to block the internet naming system transfer. I think i heard if this transfer occurs that is permanent. Any thoughts?

Any thoughts?


I don't know how it would affect me so I am not very opinionated about it.

If you Think Hacking is a somewhat Serious Problem on the Internet Today , just wait and see how Foreign Oversight of the Internet will make it Uninhabitable for just about Every User out there .

Maybe you didn't get it so I will ask you directly.

So how does a permanent transfer of the internet naming system change things for the general public?

How will the UN overseeing the administration of domain names do that?

Hacking is getting worse too


KrebsOnSecurity.com was the target of an extremely large and unusual distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack designed to knock the site offline.

It was nearly double the size of the largest attack they’d seen previously, and was among the biggest assaults the Internet has ever witnessed.

The attack began around 8 p.m. ET on Sept. 20, and initial reports put it at approximately 665 Gigabits of traffic per second. Additional analysis on the attack traffic suggests the assault was closer to 620 Gbps in size, but in any case this is many orders of magnitude more traffic than is typically needed to knock most sites offline.

What does that have to do with domain names or ICANN?

Maybe we could first define what the internet naming system is for those that may not know to further the dialogue.

Furthermore, what is the benefit of doing so and more importantly, who does it really benefit overall?

I am not really sure. Maybe the OP can tell everyone since that was the issue supposedly if you read the last sentence of the OP.

It is unpredictable. You will have to wait and see when/if it happens

Direct Links to IP Addressed Sites could become Masked and Redirected to Hacker Sites Exposing Users to Viruses and Malware Attacks . Under U.S. Authority , this would never happen .

All ICANN does is maintain a database of domain names and broad IP addresses and who they are assigned to. That's it.

Whats with all the capitalized words?

Great question and I'm interested in knowing this myself. I'd like to know if this is a tempest in a teapot.
