PC Pro: Nominet – no security revamp for domain

PC Pro writes “Nominet has no plans to introduce the mandatory security measures included in the .uk domains announced this week in its existing addresses.   Nominet launched a shorter .uk version aimed at businesses, promising additional security features.

Under Nominet’s .uk proposals, companies would be required to have a physical UK presence, while the domains would include routine monitoring and notification of malware and a DNSSEC digital signature which minimises the risks of a domain name being hijacked”.

Issues raised include ‘specific security aspects of the service, as well as broader policy or operational questions and the impact of the proposed change on existing .uk portfolio and registrar business models’.

In response, they have produced a consultation FAQ section
