The article I read used youtube.com as an example. What if an attacker obtains the private key for this domain? He can now control it or even transfer it.
Right now, you can get a court rule that undoes that. But with DoB this would mean everyone has to learn a new domain. Good luck with that…
@deejoe I mean, the basic idea sounds not bad. but I see a huge bootstrapping problem. And don't see the key management problem solved.
I mean when we have an address "a8s…4d3f" that got the petname "youtube" in my namespace and now someone references it as "Sheogorath's youtube" which sounds very natural, how do we make sure, in case of a hijacked keypair that everyone who has such reference, updates it on time?
And how to obtain the cryptographic address in first place?
