DigitalSENSE News: ICANN board assents to 2013 Registry agreement

The New gTLD Registry Agreement is intended to enhance the security and stability of the Domain Name System (DNS) while bolstering competition in domain name industry.

The security provisions comprise of a requirement that registry operators implement Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC), reducing so-called “man-in-the-middle” attacks and spoofed DNS records.

Equally, this calls for an enhanced WHOIS service at the registry level with a common interface, and more rapid search capabilities, facilitating efficient resolution of malicious activities.

This seems to be bringing to the fore over the decision of the working group to take WHOIS off the table.
