On July 6, 2021, Director of the Domains & Jurisdiction Program Elizabeth Behsudi participated in a EURALO roundtable on Developing Regional Policy measures in the field of Domain Name System (DNS) Abuse.

EURALO is the online home of the At-Large (individual Internet user community) for the European region, providing news, key resources and interactive features for information sharing for individuals and end-user groups in the European region interested in  the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers  and shaping the future of the Internet.

The cross-community session discussed various approaches to DNS Abuse measurement and policy approaches. 

Ms. Behsudi presented key resources from the I&JPN Toolkit, which provides information on preserving the internet's technical layer when applying DNS level action to address abuses. It intends to support DNS operators in the design of their DNS abuse-related activities, notifiers in the detection and reporting of problematic activity within the DNS, as well as legislators, and law enforcement to determine procedures for dealing with different types of DNS Abuse.

About the Toolkit

The Toolkit is the result of broad consultations with key policy actors since the 1st Global Conference of the Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network in 2016, and the tireless work of governments, companies, international organizations, civil society, technical operators, and academics who have collaborated to develop interoperable solutions to Domain Name System-level action to address abuses.

The Toolkit would not be possible without the hard work and dedication of I&JPN Domains & Jurisdiction Program Contact Group Members. The I&JPN Secretariat is immensely grateful for the hard work of stakeholders (Meet the Members here).
