An individual who re-registers an expired domain implicitly inherits the residual trust associated with the domain's prior use. Adversaries can, and increasingly do, exploit these ownership changes to undermine the security of both users and systems. In fact, many seemingly disparate security problems share a root cause in residual trust abuse. As we enter the dawn of the dead domain, new techniques and policies are needed to fight this growing threat.
