EURid have launched their award-winning abuse prevention mechanism that detects possible malicious registrations. Called Abuse Prevention and Early Warning System, or APEWS, the system was developed in collaboration with researchers from the University of Leuven.
“We trust that APEWS is a valuable tool that will protect the .eu space from malicious domain registrations. We look forward to sharing statistics on its impact on our environment.” comments Marc Van Wesemael, EURid’s CEO.
APEWS is based on an innovative methodology that evaluates patterns pertaining to domain name registrations to assess whether they might be used in an abusive manner.
The abuse prevention system has now won 2 awards. The first was the eco Domains award at the 18th eco://awards in November 2019. The second was EURid’s paper on Abuse Prevention and Early Warning System won one of the two “Distinguished Paper Awards” at the Annual Computer Security Applications Conference (ACSAC).
The award-winning EURid paper, written in collaboration with researchers from the University of Leuven in Belgium, along with the other winner, were both praised for their deployable and impactful security. The jury said “both papers are directly useful to the industry or are already operational”.
