He has devoted himself to the optimization of both the domain name and IP service systems, as well as the promotion of IPv6 and RPKI in China.

Nominee statement

As early as 2014, I led the drafting and release of China's first white paper on RPKI Environmental Development. Later, I successively led the research on RPKI technology and CNNIC's plan on RPKI deployment. In 2017, under my leadership CNNIC deployed and made trial operation of RPKI services. After that, I guided a CNNIC team to continuously optimize the RPKI service platform system. As a result, the key indicators such as RPKI service availability and security were further improved.

In terms of IPv6, I ever undertook the special research project on CNGI's next generation Internet, and participated in the development and research of CNGI's Next Generation Internet Trusted Domain Name Service System Industrialization Project, China's Domain Name System IPv6 Upgrading and Transformation and other key projects. Currently, I am leading the formulation of China’s IPv6 related standards.

As the Director of CNNIC's Technology Department, I was fully responsible for the development, operation and maintenance of the global service platform and software system of CNNIC's Top-Level Domain name system, and at the same time accumulated rich experience. I led the building of CNNIC's Information Security Management System (ISMS) up to the international standards. For the first time, China's ccTLD registration, resolution and query services achieved 100% availability for a whole year. Since I took charge of the operation and management of CNNIC's top-level domain name, .CN has remained to be the ccTLD with the largest registration volume for seven consecutive years.

With rich experience in international exchanges, I have established extensive technical and business contacts with assigned names and numbers communities at home and abroad. I served as a member of the APTLD Board of Directors. I convened many annual meetings of organizations in China's domain name industry. I led CNNIC delegations to ICANN, IETF, GDD, DNS-OARC and other international conferences and participated in policy and technology discussions. I have established or maintained close cooperation with ICANN’s Beijing Engagement Center, domestic and foreign registrars, and China's IP address community. I have actively promoted the communication of Internet technology communities both in China and in the Asia-Pacific region, effectively let CNNIC play its role in IP addresses and domain names, and organized many technology exchange activities of the China IP Address Allocation Alliance, further enhancing the breadth and depth of China's engagement in the Asia-Pacific community.

I feel honored to be nominated for APNIC EC election. With the changing demands of members and the emerging new technologies, APNIC faces more chances as well as challenges. I would like to leverage my leadership and technical experiences and skills to help APNIC enhance its operation, optimize the systems and better serve the members. I am committed to working with the community to promote adoption and deployment of IPv6 and RPKI in the Asia Pacific region, while enhancing communication among the region.
