Short, Brutal & Nasty: New Domains & Their Life & Times

June 5, 2019, 10:40 - 11:05 Tech Talks

Domain names are cheap, easy-to-get assets – the perfect tool for the perfect crime. In this presentation, internet pioneer and Farsight Security CEO Dr. Paul Vixie reveals the industry conditions that have sparked the explosion of domain names (according to  Verisign, domain name registrations have grown by approximately 11.7 million, or 3.5 percent, year over year); explains how new domains are being abused for cybercrime; and finally, outlines tools, techniques and procedures security professionals can put in place to reduce the risk posed by new domains.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Domain names are critical to an organisation’s branding and operations
  2. Bad actors have learned to exploit new domains to commit crime
  3. New domains can be exploited to for zero-day attacks, counterfeit websites, phishing  and other malicious activity
  4. Reputation services, blacklists do not provide immediate protection against new domains
  5. Organisations can implement necessary techniques, procedures and policies to mitigate risks posed by new domains
