Today and tomorrow you have a great opportunity to listen to some of the newest research into the Domain Name System (DNS) operations and security through the live video stream of the 24th meeting of the DNS Operations Analysis and Research Center (DNS-OARC). You can watch live at:
and view the past recordings on the DNS-OARC YouTube channel. The DNS-OARC 24 agenda covers a wide range of topics related to the overall operations of DNS. Some of the sessions that Deploy360 readers may find of interest include:
- Thursday, March 31
- How we are developing a next generation DNS API for applications
- State of the “DNS privacy” project: running code
- QNAME minimisation in Unbound (DNS privacy)
- Friday, April 1
- Knot DNS Resolver
- Threshold-Cryptography Distributed HSM
- Review and analysis of attack traffic against A-root and J-root on November 30 and December 1, 2015
- ECDSA – Reviewed
- Rolling the Root Key
- Algorithm roll-over experiences
- Panel: DNSSEC algorithm flexibility
The last four sessions that I highlighted in bold all fit into the larger work of moving to use newer elliptic curve cryptographic algorithms within DNSSEC that I wrote about recently. As I mentioned in that article, I’ll be moderating this final panel tomorrow afternoon.
I would encourage people to tune in and watch the sessions. Do visit the DNS-OARC 24 timetable to find out the times when different sessions will be happening. All times are in Argentina time (ART) which is UTC-3.
