On Tuesday, May 10th, at 13:30 on the second floor of the Venue, some of the most knowledgeable experts on DNS Abuse gather to attend the Nordic Domain Days DNS Abuse Workshop hosted by iQ and topDNS, an ECO initiative.
So, why you should join the workshop? You should attend the workshop on DNS abuse if you are interested in making sure there is as little DNS abuse as possible. So everyone should be there ;-)
You do not need technical expertise, although it does not hurt.
We will hear a keynote from Verisign’s Keith Drazek and then move to the following questions:
- What is DNS abuse and why is there so much controversy about the definition?
- What are the roles and responsibilities of registries, registrars, resellers, hosting companies, e-mail providers and payment providers?
- What can and should registries and registrars do?
We will hear brief lighting talks to set the scene by:
- Atro Tossavainen, Koli-Lõks
- Carel Bitter, Spamhaus
- Graeme Bunton, DNS Abuse Institute
- Hans Seeuws, EURid
- Jorij Abrahms, Global Anti-Scam Alliance
- LG Forsberg, iQ
- Michael B. Halvorsen, iQ
- Prudence Malinki, MarkMonitor / Clarivate
- Theo Geurts, Realtime Register
- Volker Greimann, CentralNic / Key-Systems
During which you will:
- Hear about what’s happening in the gTLD world and at ICANN in particular and why there is a different discussion in the ccTLD world and wider Internet industry.
- Learn about proactive and reactive approaches to mitigating DNS abuse
- See real-life examples of responding to abuse involving compromised vs. maliciously registered domain names
- Get info on automated vs. manual processing of abuse reports
- Get one of the first presentations ever on NetBeacon, the DNS Abuse Institute's brand new reporting tool
- Get advice on being efficient with the least effort and best results
- Get advice on how to navigage ways to exchange information and become more effective in fighting DNS abuse
- Be guided on the complexity of picking intelligence feeds and working with trusted flaggers
- Go home with some concrete things you can easily do to be part of the solution against DNS abuse.
Most importantly, there will be enough time for discussion so you will also hear your own voice sharing thoughts and contribute to a lively discussion. There might even be a bit of giggling here and there. The session will be moderated by eco’s Thomas Rickert, one of the leaders of the topDNS initiative.
