Authentication of domain names

Authentication of domain names

I understand that no authentication is required for a first delegation of a domain name.

i.e. the following could happen:

1. Domain name is registered, but not delegated at time of
2. Some time later (e.g. 6 weeks) a delegation request for
is submitted.
3. No authentication is required for that first-time delegation - i.e.
anyone could delegate the domain name to whatever nameservers they choose to

If this is correct (I understand that authentication is required for
subsequent delegations) then I could identify all domain names that
are registered but undelegated, set them up on my nameservers and delegate

Could someone from the Registrar, Melbourne IT, confirm whether the
above is accurate, or do I have it wrong?

Regards, Mark
