ICANN declared that country code top-level domain (ccTLD) operators can be able to participate in the Domain Abuse Activity Reporting (DAAR) system.
DAAR project of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is now open to ccTLD operators. According to ICANN, the DAAR project is aimed to promote a greater understanding of DNS abuse across the global DNS. The ICANN organization invites all ccTLD operators to participate in the DAAR project.
Study and report on domain name registration
With ICANN’s DAAR system provides studying and reporting on domain name registration and security threat behavior across top-level domain (TLD) registries from a curated list sourced by Domain Name System (DNS) reputation providers’ data. In addition to this, it is available for ccTLD operators to pull their own aggregated DAAR data via the Monitoring System Application Programing Interface (MoSAPI). Its interface allows registry operators to retrieve information collected by the ICANN Service Level Agreement Monitoring (SLAM) system.
While ccTLD operators will not be subject to the SLAs the SLAM system monitors, with using MoSAPI they can reach consistent interface for all registries participating in DAAR. Also, ccTLD operators can monitor the DAAR security threat levels per threat type per month in the same way as generic top-level domain operators (gTLD). To participate in the DAAR system, ccTLD operators should send a request to [email protected] to begin the process.
