Happening now: it is afternoon in Vanuatu but some are up early to catch up with TRBR Vanuatu for their annual Regulatory Conference and Registrar Workshop. Thank you, Dusan Stojicevic of Gransy and Munir Badr of AEserver for your sacrifices.   Post

Yet another remote meeting worth attending: https://eednsforum.org/

Happening now at ICANN69:

  • 20 Oct: a straight talk on DNS abuse by Jeff Bedser, CEO of IThreat, an APTLD member.    Photo
  • 19 Oct: thank you, Ed Lewis, for reviewing the DNSSEC delpoyment across APTLD and APR.    Photo
  • 19 Oct: Dusan Stojicevic of Gransy shares a unique update of a massive attack at the company’s core infrastructure with an ultimate purpose to destroy it. The Gransy team spent 14 days to fully recover the operation under its Disaster Recovery Plan – a unique case, unfortunately, but a good reality check anyway    Photo
