ICAO-ICANN: signed agreement for a new trust framework
Aimed at securing digital communications in the aviation sector
ICAO Secretary General Fang Liu has signed a new Memorandum of Understanding with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), a development which will see the two agencies exploring the specifics for a new trust framework aimed at securing digital communications in the aviation sector.
ICAO has been canvassing all of these stakeholders in recent weeks in order to gain their insights and perspectives on the benefits the new aviation trust framework could help lead to.
The new MoU, focused on promoting joint cooperation in the area of Internet technology development within aviation systems, is seen as a critical step in helping to submit a mature proposal on the topic for the official review and endorsement of the ICAO Council later this month.
