With the rise of machine managed ad buying brand safety has become the talk of the town, making the recent announcement from the IAB Tech Lab introducing the ads.txt initiative appearing in the very nick of time. As stated, a public record of Authorized Digital Sellers will be created, preventing proliferation of counterfeit and unauthorized ad impressions transacted via domain spoofing across the digital advertising market.

Even though the programmatic buying technology has helped advertisers reevaluate the ad buying process that still resembles a black box for many of them, what the project is about to overcome.

Being both easy to adopt and secure, ads.txt is to become one of the major brand safety tools for declaring who is authorized to resell web inventory.
