How to build a more secure DNS policy for your organization

The Modality of Mortality in Domain Names

Cover

Domain names seem fairly innocuous – but they’re everywhere, and they’re vulnerable. Attackers can spin up domains on the fly. The domains get registered, then they’re quickly abused for an attack and once they’ve served their purpose, they’re abandoned.

In this study, Farsight Security monitored an ongoing data feed of newly observed domains (NODs) to generate a cohort data set, and periodically probed those names to determine:

  • What fraction of new domains get suspended by their registrar
  • How many are deleted by the DNS provider
  • What portion of the remaining are effectively “killed” by well-known blocklists

Learn more about NODs and what happens to them throughout their lifecycle so that you can help your organization create a more secure DNS policy and improve its security posture.
