I am working on a consultation response and have emailed UK chapter
lists for input. But since I plan to submit this under the GIC's name,
I'd also like to request any feedback from the other members here.
Nominet is requesting responses to a consultation on proposals for new
second-level .uk domains. Regardless of the merits of that proposal,
there are some security ideas proposed. Apart from registrant identity
security suggestions proposed are currently:
* routine monitoring of domains for malware and viruses on the domain name
* include a visible trust mark to indicate this enhanced security to
customers of the domain
* include mandatory DNSSEC signing
It would seem OWASP ought to be able to suggest improvements to these.
Even if the proposal is not adopted, there are other drivers for a
.uk trust mark, and our input may help steer that somewhat too. The
consultation document is:
The closing date for responses is 7th January 2013. Draft v2 is here:
If anyone has any thoughts, concerns, suggestions or improvements,
please let me know.
