To “improve confidence and acceptance in the DNSSEC security mechanism,” ICANN has issued this invitation to “recognized members of the DNS technical community to be part of the key generation, key backup and key signing process for the root.”  Twenty-one “trusted community representatives” will be selected,  based on statements of interest; see the solicitation for more details.  People affiliated with ICANN, VeriSign or the U.S. Department of Commerce may not become a Trusted Community Representative.  More information can be found here.
