Turning Domain Data into Domain Intelligence

DNS is a locked system - you can’t model the domain space at scale unless you get an AXFR from every authoritative nameserver there is, but you might be able to get a good model going if you attempted to discover and resolve all FQDNs. So, we’ll do the latter! dnstrace is a volunteer-supported, free suite of software that harvests, analyzes, and visualizes the relationships between domains so we can finally turn “domain information” into “domain intelligence” for everyone. Ever wanted to generate better domain reputation so grandma doesn’t get sent to the 200th .ru domain registered today that serves Flash malware? Or wanted to evaluate patterns in cybercrime at a global scale using domain data? Through big data and careful analysis, we can push the security envelope until we’re ahead of the curve for the first time since Creeper.
