Public Interest Registry, the registry for .org domains, today announced the establishment of the DNS Abuse Institute.

The group will fund research, publish recommended practices, share data, and provide tools to identify and report DNS abuse including malware, botnets, phishing, pharming, and spam.

Graeme Bunton, until last week the Head of Policy for domain name registrar Tucows, will be the institute’s inaugural director.

DNS abuse and domain abuse and how registrars and other involved companies deal with it is always a big topic at ICANN meetings, and usually, the anti-abuse community (IP lawyers, law enforcement and spam/phishing fighters) complain about the registrars doing too little. The registrars have tried to pull ahead of the (often unfounded) complaints and have created this DNS Abuse framework document published here: http://www.dnsabuseframework.org/
