For those interested in BitSquatting. A presentation by Cisco at the ICANN
meeting in Buenos Aires




Subject: BitSquatting


Dear Members,                                


One quite fascinating presentation during the ccNSO Tech Day was one done by
Jaeson Schultz of Cisco on BitSquatting.


BitSquatting is registering names that MAY be queried because a bit error
generated somewhere along the network.  By the adjustment of a single bit,
the name is still valid, but it may end up somewhere not intended.


The chances of this happening are very, very small.  But, the number of
requests are very, very, very large!  


His presentation can be found


Here's another note http://dinaburg.org/bitsquatting.html


I thought this was interesting.
