        The "Internationalized Domain Names Mitigation APIs" download includes several API functions to convert an IDN to different representations, as well as several API functions specifically intended to allow applications to mitigate some of the security risks presented by this technology. The functions IdnToAscii, IdnToUnicode, and IdnToNameprepUnicode each convert an IDN string to a particular form. The functions DownlevelGetLocaleScripts, DownlevelGetStringScripts, and DownlevelVerifyScripts allow applications to verify that the characters in a given IDN are drawn entirely from the scripts associated with a particular locale or locales. However, these functions are only helpers; applications have still to perform comprehensive threat modeling and create appropriate mitigation for these threats.

        Also included are the Unicode normalization APIs IsNormalizedString and NormalizeString, which are used by the mitigation APIs.
