Session Abstract

Universities have as significant economic and Intellectual Property/Trademark investments in domain names as major brands, and University domain name portfolios are as vulnerable to hijackings, attacks or misuse as as major enterprises. Universities also have no less an incentive to maintain near-perfect DNS availability than major enterprises. In this presentation, we consider threats against domain names and DNS, both operational (e.g., DOS) and socially engineered (e.g., hijackings) and discuss measures ICANN's Security and Stability Advisory Committee recommends to treat and protect an organization's domain names as critical assets.
