a in-depth analysis of the risks and threats. In May 13 year 2002 the President of the committee for security and stability was converted to the President of the Security and Stability Advisory Committee (SSAC).<ref>[http://www.icann.org/en/committees/security/biographies-31jan11-en.htm SSAC history]</ref>[[Rod Rasmussen]] is the current Chair of the SSAC.

In order to fulfill its objective to advise [[ICANN]], SSAC develops comments, reports, and advisories on the issues which may concern the Internet community.
* ''Reports'' are documents that contain substantive information and are developed in a few months' time. The reports represent a well-structured, in-depth analysis of a specific topic and include recommendations for ICANN.* ''Comments'' are SSAC responses to reports created by other ICANN bodies or organizations. These comments are usually supplied through [[Public Comment]] proceedings.
* ''Advisories'' are concise documents containing useful, clear advice for ICANN and the Internet community so that they can act in a timely manner. The advisories supply recommendations and solutions for problems and ways to reduce risks and threats. <ref>[http://www.icann.org/en/committees/security/ SSAC reporting]</ref>
