<P>Mr. dierker and all,</P>
<P>&nbsp; First of all this is not a GA contribution but rather is a GNSO announcment.</P>
<P>&nbsp; Secondly the attributation is confusing as the URL provided is not consistant</P>
<P>with the actual subject matter which is Data Escrow for .museum.&nbsp; The correct</P>
<P>URL refrence of interest which this announcment is directed to is:</P>
<P><A href="http://www.icann.org/tlds/agreements/museum/draft-proposed-museum-appendices-26aug07.pdf";>http://www.icann.org/tlds/agreements/museum/draft-proposed-museum-appendices-26aug07.pdf</A></P>
<P>&nbsp; The only concerns offhand which seem to glare out are, XML is the preferd format</P>
<P>for this data escrow solution being suggested, which is not yet a standard file</P>
<P>format and is being challanged strongly by OOXML by microsoft within the </P>
<P>ISO.&nbsp; The second concers I see is with the DISTRIBUTION OF PUBLIC KEYS</P>
<P>section, which seemingly ask for those keys by the registry to be transmitted</P>
<P>to in an unsecure manner which opens up any follow-on data or communications</P>
<P>of sensitive data to miscreants of various sorts and is a strong target for fraud</P>
<P>as a result.&nbsp; I doubt that this method/proceedure would pass muster in </P>
<P>any reasonable audit.</P>
<P>To wit: "</P>
<P align=left>Distribution Of Public Keys. <FONT face="Times New Roman">Each of Registry Operator and Escrow Agent will</P>
<P align=left>distribute its public key to the other party (Registry Operator or Escrow Agent, as the</P>
<P align=left>case may be) via email to an email address to be specified. Each party will confirm</P>
<P align=left>receipt of the other party's public key with a reply email, and the distributing party will</P>
<P align=left>subsequently reconfirm the authenticity of the key transmitted. In this way, public key</P>
<P align=left>transmission is authenticated to a user able to send and receive mail via a mail server</P>
<P align=left>operated by the distributing party. Escrow Agent, Sponsor and ICANN shall exchange</P>
<P align=left>keys by the same procedure."</P></FONT>
