Garth Bruen Discussing Whois, DNSSEC and Domain Security

NameSmash has interviewed Garth Bruen, Internet security expert and creator of Knujon, on some key issues under discussion during the recent ICANN meetings in San Francisco. Topics include Whois, DNS Security Extensions (DNSSEC) and generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs) — issues of critical importance particularly with ICANN's expected roll-out of thousands of new gTLDs in the coming years.

Respond to the Detective, not me:

"And then there's a big hole at the bottom of our little box square here, and that big hole is DNS.  That big hole is ICANN.  That big hole is the registrars.  That big hole is the lack of effort, the lack of common sense that could be put in place" - Detective Sergeant, Michael Moran (http://svsf40.icann.org/meetings/siliconvalley2011/transcript-dns-abuse-14mar11-en.txt)

I wasn't referring to Garda Moran. I was referring to a number of statements in that interview made by you that were factually incorrect.

Sure, they're great for headlines and grabbing attention, but at the cost of reality ie. facts.

Michele,

Would you be opposed to having an open-forum discussion/debate about these issues during a future ICANN meeting we are both present at?

Garth

You know full well that I have zero issue debating / discussing these matters with you be that in public or in private.

However, the matters I am taking issue with in this instance are specifically related to a number of your comments in that interview that were factually incorrect.
