An opt-in real time black hole list for untrustworthy domain names?
I certainly don't think that offering the capability is a
bad thing. Nobody is forced to use it.
Individual operators can decide what capability to enable and which blacklists to enable. ISP's could offer their customers resolvers with reputation filters and resolvers without. ISP's can offer blacklisted/greylisted resolvers for their 'family safe' offerings. Corporations/enterprises can decide for themselves what they blacklist.
A reputation-based whitelist would be interesting. Reputation could
be determined by the registrar, perhaps based on the registrar having a
valid, verified street address, phone and e-mail for the domain owner. A domain that has the
above and has been registered for a month or so could be part of a whitelist. A domain that hasn't met the above could be gray listed. Operators could direct those to an internal 'caution' web page.
Fast flux DNS based botnets are a significant issue, but I don't think
that a blacklist of known-bad domains will solve the problem. If a
malware domain is created as a part of a fast flux botnet, a blacklist
will never be able to keep up. It could still be useful though. Some malware is hosted on static domains.
A domain squatters blacklist. I'd love to be able to redirect address bar typos to an internal target rather than the confusing, misleading web pages that squatters use to misdirect users. I don't care if domain squatters business model is disrupted. They are speculators. They should expect to have their business models disrupted once in a while.
