1. Define the processes by which Domain Name System (DNS) servers may be efficiently and correctly administered, configured, and operated on Internet networks. This will include root zone name servers, gTLD name servers, and the name servers of other DNS domains. As part of this effort, the group will produce documents explaining to the general Internet community what processes and mechanisms should be employed for the effective management and operation of DNS servers.
2. Publish (or assume sponsorship for) documents concerning DNSSEC procedures.
3. Publish (or assume sponsorship for) documents concerning the education of new/novice DNS "users" (FYI-RFCs).
4. Identify performance measurement tools and evaluate their effectiveness.
The group sees four main areas with related documents:
