 Alternic shows its power   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
Earlier this week, Alternic, an alternate domain name registry, redirected the Internic.net domain name to their site.
Alternic's CFO, Eugene Kashpureff, stated that they were protesting Internic's claim to ownership of ".com," ".org," and ".net." As of Sunday night, June 20, typing in
Alternic was nice enough to include a link to The Internic in their protest page.

Kashpureff's problems began when, as a publicity stunt to draw visibility to his Alternic service, he hacked the Internet's domain name system so that Web browsers contacting the Internic's home page, http://www.internic.net, were redirected to his Alternic home page, http://www.alternic.net.
Eugene Kashpureff, founder of the Alternic, was in a detention center near the Toronto airport this morning, awaiting a hearing after being apprehended by Employment & Immigration Canada and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) at his office on Friday.
Marc Hurst, acting managing director of the Alternic project, told Newsbytes this morning that he understood Kashpureff to be in the Toronto immigration detention center awaiting a hearing, which he assumed would be aimed at deporting Kashpureff to the United States.

 Wired News: AlterNIC to Reincarnate?
AlterNIC is the best known among the smattering of alternative domain-name registrars who want to see the market open up.
In AlterNIC's stead, Hendeles is preparing to launch a new service to take on Network Solutions' control over the domain-name space.
The debt was incurred by AlterNIC in March 1997, Hendeles said, when he began funding the registry after becoming involved with Kashpureff and his plans during the preceding year.

However Jason Henedeles, who financed the AlterNic operations towards the end, is set to scoop up what remains in terms of AlterNic assets and make a bid for a slice of the domain name registry business that is set to open up to competition come October 1.
However, someone reported the crime to the FBI, who issued a warrant for his arrest and eventually got their man. Come October 1 the five and a half-year monopoly of will be over and other companies will be able to register domains in.com,.net and.org and possibly add other top-level domains to the root.
The AlterNic held the intellectual property for 13 of these names, including.xxx and.med, but some of them were apparently sold to others, so it was difficult to ascertain who actually owned them, said Hendeles.

The method he used to redirect users was a known vulnerability in the system and was effective on older systems that had not been upgraded to fix the problem.
The Alternic was set up to battle the monopoly the Internic holds on issuing domain names at the global level, in the "com," "net," and "org" hierarchies.

AlterNIC founder Eugene Kashpureff was arrested Friday in Toronto on U.S. charges related to wire fraud.
Marc Hurst, a spokesman for the AlterNIC, said Kashpureff was scheduled for a deportation hearing today.
Hurst said he had been contacted a few weeks ago by Canadian immigration authorities who were looking for Kashpureff because he was wanted by the FBI on warrants for several counts of wire fraud.

However, the AlterNic looks to be tearing itself apart, as founder Eugene Kashpureff, on bail on federal wire fraud charges, attempts to wrest control from the people who are now running the service (see separate story).
Another associate of the ORSC is Marc Hurst, who worked with Sexton on the AlterNic, and is also a member of CORE, as he runs a registrar in Canada.
Hurst says he expects some of the AlterNic's registrars to support what the ORSC is trying to do, namely get root zones co-ordinated so new TLDs can be added to the internet's root zone in an orderly fashion.

 New top-level domains promise descriptive names - SunWorld - September 1996
At this point, the Alternic is a fringe agency, which is not tied in directly to the standard DNS system the Internet relies on.
Although the Alternic may be a grand experiment, there are others who feel that it is more of a rogue operation that will only lead to a big mess.
For those that are eager to get a new domain name extension, there is a question of whether you sign up for one now, which may not work in the future, or whether you wait for the registries to be formed.

 Massive Internet outage adds to InterNIC's woes (600) - PC Magazine   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
One organisation that has stepped up its campaign against the monopoly is AlterNIC, which has set up an alternative registry using unauthorised suffixes or top level domains (TLDs)- such as '.nic', '.sex' and '.xxx' instead of those controlled by InterNIC, '.com', '.net' and '.org'.
AlterNIC's maverick founder Eugene Kashpureff said this week that he has been able to hack into the domain name system (DNS) in which site addresses are registered, so that most Web users can access his alternative TLDs.
Usually, the problem with alternative registries such as AlterNIC and uDNS and eDNS is that users have to reconfigure their name servers to recognise them.

 OpenNIC Members' Forum || Dropping AlterNIC and PacRoot   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
I think it's time we went ahead and dropped their listings from the root zone unless we can get some kind of confirmation that they are still operating somewhere or that they do intend to return.
Incidentally, AlterNIC even has a year-old WP article that pronounces it defunct: [1] and Pacroot has worse.
It's unfortunate that alternate roots overall have not been very successful in the sense of at least staying in existence, but keeping their systems and peering listed as if they were still alive isn't helping anyone.

Alternic seems to still be providing glue records with bogus.com domains.
Not only is this bad, since it strongly implies that AlterNIC is fiddling data in other people's zones (well, maybe not other people's; that depends on who " Hendeles, Jason" is), but it means we're recursing through the AlterNIC servers on a.com query and that _should not_ be happening.
We're not supposed to be sending any queries to AlterNIC that aren't in their TLDs.

 The Domain Naming Controversy
Both the proposal by AlterNIC and the proposal by NSI have aspects which should be incorporated into the final solution based on the plan set out by the IAHC.
While open cooperative systems were common back when the Internet was being developed as a research and educational tool, commercial interests now play a large part in the development of the Internet so the viability of such an open standard is questionable considering the stability requirements of the business users.
However, if it was accepted as a mainstream approach to domain naming, many more disputes would arise and AlterNIC's complete policy on dispute resolution states: "any disputes between parties over the rights to use a particular name are to be settled between the contending parties using normal legal methods" (AlterNIC.NET, "AlterNIC Domain...").

The FBI has issued a warrant for Kashpureff's arrest on federal charges of wire and computer fraud and is trying to get him extradited to the United States to face those charges.
That is why Kashpureff and his backers are arguing that even though some might say he tampered with the basic Internet infrastructure, he didn't cause any material damage.

Groups such as AlterNIC are not satisfied by the moves to open up the lucrative domain name process, made by the Internet Ad Hoc Committee and other Net governing bodies.
Kashpureff's hack was accomplished through a software algorithm that automatically causes the public name server to update itself so it is able to connect to some AlterNIC domains, for a limited time at least.
Others think the AlterNIC system is actually dangerous because it uses unreliable protocols and bogus data.

By this I mean when they started serving new TLDs through their nameservers, and when they started their website at alternic.net.
I know that when I started there was already some discussion about new TLDs; from my point of view and I think the average experienced Net user point of view, it became an issue when the Internic started charging (though I'm sure it was an issue to some way before then).
The only thing the Alternic done is create confusion, publicity for themselves (I'm still amazed at Boardwatch), and bad blood.

The AlterNIC wasn't attempting to be a MITM, either, but easily could have, and on a large scale.

Network Solutions is sole caretaker of the generic top-level domains.com,.net, and.org - a situation Kashpureff calls a monopoly and has attempted to derail.
Kashpureff fooled most of the Net's nameservers into changing the identity of the www.netsol.com and www.internic.net machines to that of his own.
Due to the distributed nature of the network, some servers may still resolve to AlterNIC, even though for Kashpureff, the jig is up.
