The DNSSEC Industry Coalition Announces the Formation of Its Registrar Review Team

The DNSSEC Industry Coalition announces today the formation of its Registrar Review Team following the 34th public meeting of the Internet Corporation of Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) in Mexico City, Mexico. The Registrar Review Team is comprised of companies that will provide the coalition with valuable information from a registrar's unique perspective.

"I welcome the registrars who have joined the Coalition and are leading efforts for widespread adoption of DNSSEC," says Alexa Raad, CEO of .ORG, The Public Interest Registry and founder of the DNSSEC Coalition. "Registrars are critical to the overall deployment of DNSSEC, and we look forward to long term collaboration with this important technical upgrade."

"MarkMonitor® aims to be at the forefront of methods to secure our customers' brands," says Ihab Shraim, Chief Security Officer with MarkMonitor. "DNSSEC is a very important next step to the future of a safe and secure online environment and we look forward to working with the Coalition to make DNSSEC implementation a reality in the industry."

The Registrar Review Team consists of Name.com, Names Beyond, DynDNS, Corporation Service Company (CSC), and MarkMonitor. Membership to the DNSSEC Industry Coalition is open to domain name registries, registrars and industry securities experts.

"Registrars are the next step in the Coalition's membership, and I am thrilled to have them on board with us," says Steve Crocker, CEO of Shinkuro, Inc. and co-chair of the DNSSEC Industry Coalition. "I look forward to working closely with the registrar review team to streamline their implementation process."

Coalition members include Top-Level domain registries of .ORG, The Public Interest Registry, the .org registry operator; Afilias Limited, registry services provider to 15 top level domains; .SE (the Internet Infrastructure Foundation), the .se registry operator; EDUCAUSE, the .edu registry operator; Nominet, the .uk registry operator; VeriSign, Inc., the .com, .net, .tv, and .cc registry operator; SIDN, the .nl registry operator, and NeuStar, Inc., the .biz and .us registry operator. The coalition is also supported by industry security experts such as Shinkuro, Inc.; NL Net Labs; InfoBlox, Internet Systems Consortium, Inc.; Internet Society; OARC, Kirei AB; and Secure64 Software Corporation.

Hailing itself as an action oriented group, it seeks organizations willing to contribute and support the widespread adoption of DNSSEC.

About Domain Name Security Extensions (DNSSEC)

With DNSSEC, Internet users know that their Internet-based communications such as web site visits and email correspondence actually connect to the parties they intend to reach. DNSSEC thwarts attacks such as pharming, cache poisoning, and DNS redirection that have been used to commit fraud, distribute malware, or steal personal or confidential information.
