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 nic.at 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.
