New Bill Requires Accurate Whois Information When Registering A Domain

Article Reads:17685

In what could be an interesting precedent, the US Congress has passed a bill that requires anyone who registers a domain to provide accurate information for the WHOIS record. Currently, there is no check on whether the information is accurate or not. The Bill seeks to make the internet safer.

At present many registrants (companies included), provide false whois information for various reasons. A common procedure is to list a fake name in the contact information to gaurd against social engineering threats where an attacker may call and ask to speak to the contact listed in the whois database.
