In my latest video interview and podcast for iQ, I spoke with Elizabeth Behsudi about the recently published I&JPN Toolkit on Domain Name System (DNS) Level Action to Address Abuses.
My colleage LG provides an overview of this service that is designed to allow anyone to gain daily insight into whether you or someone else has a problem with domain name abuse.
How is the domain block list compiled? What is the effect of price/# of abuse reports in newgtlds vs ccTLDs & legacy TLDs? How do you get off the bad list? What about evidence? What’s a “phishing rod” attack? And more…
How can a registry or registrar reduce the amount of duplicative and non-actionable abuse reports? How do you get off a blacklist or bad list? Should there be evidence standards from the reputation/blacklist providers? And more…
By allowing Internet Infrastructure providers to act faster, more effectively and efficiently against scams. My interview with Jorij Abraham, director of Scamadviser.com.
If you’ve ever attended or wanted to attend Nordic Domain Days (LG’s the founder); want to hear what he has to say about challenges in trying to tackle domain name abuse and how iQ decides which abuse feeds/reputation block lists to integrate, then you may want to check out this video.
Comments related to the recently announced ICANN audit of registrar compliance with DNS security threat obligations.
The iQ Abuse Manager (formerly RegistryOffice Abuse Monitor) is now used by leading registrars and nearly 150 gTLDs and ccTLDs, and is also available to hosting service providers and brands.
We will provide these feeds, as well as our existing reputation feeds, via Abuse Monitor at no charge or obligation for 60 days to any registry operator (gTLD or ccTLD), registrar or hosting providers that desire to access.
RegistryOffice supports the Framework as it provides a common definition of certain types of DNS abuse and states that registries and registrars must act upon the defined categories.
