NCC Group has published the .trust Technical Policy.
The .trust Technical Policy will provide the rules and governance to measure security compliance on NCC Group’s soon-to-launch .trust domain. All brands operating on a .trust domain will be required to adhere to the Policy and will subject to a mechanism that promotes a high standard of security to their consumers and business partners.
Developed by a coalition of industry luminaries and NCC Group experts as a proactive way to protect online businesses and consumers, it said that adhering to them will help provide robust protection from vulnerabilities that threaten to compromise integrity, availability and privacy. NCC Group is currently working closely with ICANN to release .trust to the public and plans for the gTLD to be live in early 2015.
