topDNS Best Practice Series: Recognising Good Practice in the DNS – Towards Positive, Data-Driven Policy Discussions

The DNS Reasearch Federation & eco’s topDNS Initiative held the fourth in a series of topDNS best practice webinars, showcasing what the domain name industry is doing to fight DNS abuse.

The aim of the webinar, which took place on 19 September, was to determine the rates of abuse and how they compare across global TLDs, as well as how to shift the focus to articulating and recognising best practices and increasing trust in the DNS ecosystem through market-based solutions.

The DNS Research Federation presented the results of a recent study measuring correlations between abuse rates and data practices in EU ccTLDs using numerous data sources in the DAP.LIVE system. The DNSRF also presented its ideas for recognising and rewarding provenance, trust and authenticity in the domain name environment.
