Sinha joins Lars-Johan Liman, Senior Systems Specialist at Netnod, the I-Root Server Operator, as co-chair for 2015. Together, Liman and Sinha will lead the RSSAC in its important mission of advising the ICANN Board of Directors and stakeholder community on matters relating to the operation, administration, security, and integrity of the Internet’s Root Server System. The RSSAC is one of four advisory committees and three supporting organizations that comprise ICANN‘s global, bottom-up, multistakeholder policy development community.
With Sinha’s election, Dr. Jun Murai, Founder of The WIDE Project, ends his fifteen-year tenure leading the RSSAC. Professor Murai was the first RSSAC Chair and one of the original nine ICANN Directors. He subsequently led RSSAC through the growth and development of the root server system as well as internal reviews.
Dr. Murai was inducted into the Internet Hall of Fame in 2013 for his many career achievements and significant contributions—spanning technical and academic work—in Japan, the Asia Pacific region, and the broader global Internet community. He will remain on the RSSAC as the appointed representative for The WIDE Project, the M-Root Server Operator.
