Spamhaus’ Passive DNS data checks DNS infrastructure connections and identifies which have historic links to one another. This allows investigators to locate new threats from a single point and block related menaces.
This is anonymized DNS query data, collected from recursive DNS servers around the world. A number of different record types are collected including: IPs, domains, hosts, name servers, and canonical names. Our Passive DNS database shows the connections between these different internet records.
The Spamhaus team of researchers uses this passive DNS data on a daily basis to assist with their investigations and research.
A multitude of roles can benefit from using Passive DNS including:
Find out how fTLD, the registry behind .bank and .insurance utilize Passive DNS data to ensure they have some of the most secure top-level domains in the industry.
API – for security vendors and expert users who wish to integrate our raw datasets with their own software and security platforms.
Continuous data feed – for inclusion into third-party security products and organizations, including those of law enforcement agencies, who wish to continuously monitor live recursive DNS traffic to aid the identification of new malicious domains, emerging threats, or cybercriminal trends.
Searching real time and historic Passive DNS data enables you to undertake various research tasks:
