16XCI-36 and UColorado wanting Colorado.xsede.orgVictor
  • There was a discussion had by the attendees present on the call including the co-leads for security.  Since  Colorado is a Level 3 service provider, XSEDE should provide this service for them, but security recommended that since this should be for only a couple of hosts that XSEDE retain the zone and Colorado just make request via the ticket system. Level 3 SPs are the most loosely integrated SPs and XSEDE should retain control of the domain and be aware of what names/addresses are put into this space. There is no procedure for L3 SPs to do this on their own, no agreement on what that should be, and L3 SPs do not have to participate in all of the working groups and phone calls surrounding all the issues.
  • Security recommends XSEDE provide the domain and retain the DNS service.
  • Tim was absent from call but e-mailed that the entire subdomain can be delegated
