Trusted Reporters gain access to CleanDNS’s abuse reporting API, which is generally three endpoints:
GET /abuse/clients– Returns a list of the TLDs, Registrars, and Resellers who make up our active clientele
POST /abuse/report– User submits one or more abuse reports as a JSON document, returns the
_id) for their submissions
GET /abuse/status/:id– User submits an
abuseRecord._idand receives a status report for any cases created from that abuse record
There is a trial period in a sandbox environment, during which the new Reporters learns how to send properly formed abuse reports, and can test the
/abuse/status/:id endpoint. Once the Reporter understands the API, we promote them to the production environment.
CleanDNS values well-evidenced reports, which generally have the following information:
Reporters can take pride in knowing they are helping Clean Up the Internet for Good, and can enumerate the specific domain takedowns or other abuse mitigations that they are responsible for.
Not explicitly. Reports on domains that are sent to CleanDNS, are integrated into the CleanDNS engine, and are then used to enforce policy by or on behalf of our clients.
CleanDNS is obligated to take reports on behalf of our infrastructure clients. Reports sent via email are not standardized and lack structure which takes additional time to process. By offering a simple and free API that structures reports, CleanDNS is able to automate the processes involved in evaluating, acting, and mitigating harms, reducing victimization.
Reports submitted to CleanDNS are used for enforcing policy against a domain when it is used for an abusive purpose.
No. However, if your entity would like one, we can discuss in more detail.
