ITHI Project

In 2017, ICANN started a project to monitor the health of the registered identifiers ecosystem, through a set of Identifier Technology Health Indicators (ITHI), or ITHI Metrics. There are seven metrics:

  1. M1: inaccuracy of Whois Data
  2. M2: Domain Name Abuse
  3. M3: DNS Root Traffic Analysis
  4. M4: DNS Recursive Server Analysis
  5. M5: Recursive Resolver Integrity
  6. M6: IANA registries for DNS parameters
  7. M7: DNSSEC Deployment.
  8. M8: DNS Authoritative Servers Analysis

This project is in development.

The measurements of M4 are based on DNS traces collected at:

The measurements of M8 are based on DNS traces collected at:
