New .AT-Report Explains How The Austrian Registry Is Working On A Secure Domain Industry

Security is a big topic, not just for domain names, but also for the networks that connect, for companies that collect data and many others. In the domain name world domain hijacking, phishing and DNS spoofing are just some of the many risks the industry is facing and these threats are the focus of the latest .at-report from the operator of the Austrian registry

Registries are responding to these kinds of scenarios with a full range of security measures. These include creating services that are designed to provide an additional layer of security for domains and services such as Anycast Nameserver networks, DNSSEC and the Registry Lock.

The report notes that registries must be on top of their game and adopt effective information security management systems (ISMS). Registrars and their resellers are also involved in the process – a priority for the ISM team and a focus of its support activities. Measures include keynote talks as well as national security drills in which various IT-related emergency scenarios are simulated and made available to registrars.
