Distributed Object Architecture versus DNS

Does anyone have any information about DOA versus DNS. Any ideas about
security with DOA is better than DNS. Maybe pros and cons of DOA versus

My understanding of 'DOA' is that it's a general category of software architecture (think CORBA) and nothing to do with name resolution or any sort of directory services, per se.

Can you provide more context?

​Oops, just replied to this on the wrong thread. Here it is again:

​ISOC released an info paper, back in October ahead of the ITU WTSA

They are worried (as I understand it) 1) that it could be an ITU end run to
grab back numbering, 2) it could be abused by bad actors such as repressive
governments who want to use it for digital id.

Post WTSA there was this

Digital Object Architecture (DOA)

WTSA-16 received 10 (ten) resolutions ranging from smart cities, combating
counterfeit devices and cybersecurity to e-health, IoT that explicitly and
implicitly referenced the DOA. Political momentum quickly grew around the
DOA as some member states appeared to seek to alter the ITU’s technology
neutral stance by selecting the DOA as the solution for a number of issues,
including IoT.

Agreement was reached to either replace DOA references with Recommendation
ITU-T X.1255 <https://www.itu.int/rec/T-REC-X.1255-201309-I> (which is
based on the DOA) or remove them entirely from the relevant resolutions if
agreed text on identity management would be reflected in the summary record
of the proceedings. The compromise text was a follows: “*the Plenary
recognized that identity management plays an important role in many
telecommunications/ICT services and that it can be implemented using a
range of technologies and solutions.*”

We should expect prolonged debates as DOA has survived with a variety of
hooks in Resolutions and Recommendations that will carry into
Plenipotentiary 2018. It will be important for governments to consider
interoperability, stability, security and scalability (at Internet scale)
capabilities of any technologies that are deployed on the Internet to
ensure that the Internet continues to remain secure and stable.

Based on seemingly cyclical statements of this nature, I've been waiting for the ITU to impose GOSIP or whatever on us for the last ~30 years or so - but so far, nothing much has happened in that regard.

Is there actually a reason to suspect that this time it will be any different?

Blind backlash from IoT DDoS? Looming billions of rf tagged items​?

None of this has anything to do with this 'DOA' thing, though.
