The Secure Domain Foundation (SDF) is a Canadian incorporated not-for-profit organization dedicated to the vision of an open and secure Internet. We are a public benefit community driven organization.
Our primary mission is to provide Domain Name Registrars, registries (ccTLD & gTLD), hosting providers, DNS operators, and other Internet infrastructure providers with the tools they need to combat abuse of their services and a forum for sharing intelligence on bad actors.
The Secure Domain Foundation and Internet Infrastructure Coalition invite you to participate in an online dialogue about domain name abuse reporting criteria. Domain name abuse reporting is a critical part of fighting cybercrime and preserving the integrity of the Domain Name System. However, the lack of uniform domain name abuse criteria is a frequently cited concern for Internet infrastructure providers seeking to adequately respond to abuse complaints
We invite the abuse reporting community, including LEA, the IP and anti-abuse communities, to join with Internet infrastructure providers to accomplish the common goal of improving abuse reporting.
A few key findings from the report include:
We provide a reputation and validation API which allows users to quickly identify potential abuse; as well as enabling Domain Registrars to meet and exceed several of the "Whois Accuracy Program" compliance requirements outlined in ICANN's 2013 Registrar Accreditation Agreement.
