ICANN looks at fast flux

| | Comments (2)
ICANN published a report on fast flux hosting.It's not new information (Jan 26 2009). I have been following this since the initial call for comments and the forums now prove an interesting read. As usual when someone tries to curb technology to prevent human criminal behavior it becomes interesting. Like many, I feel that tighter control over the registrars would offer a more viable route to control rogue domain activity. The EstDomains de-accreditation is one example of this.
The issue no-one seems to touch on however, is the potential for abuse that botnet C&C and other malware domains have after they are discarded, removed or expire.
I am sorry to say that I haven't done much work on any of my projects lately. It is partially related to the hosting move, but mostly due to lack of time and wanting to do other things with my spare time. I am however ending this hiatus.

Ewts really needs a harness for measuring test success, which is proving to be trickier due to some of the tests having peculiar ways of failing or succeeding. I am thinking of using TAP. There seems to be a shortage of php TAP code, so that might not work.

The N810 is suffering from a temperamental touch screen so I have had little motivation to work on that too. I did open the unit up (finding size 4&5 torx bits is tricker than you think) and checked the touch screen connection, but it wasn't loose. I also checked for stuck bits along the edge of the touch screen, but alas no luck. I might have to get it repaired. I did however come across some useful links/files for anyone that intends to open or tamper with the physical side of the N810
