An Empirical View of DNS Complexity and Security by Mark Allman
The Domain Name System (DNS) is a crucial piece of the Internet's fabric, charged with mapping human-friendly names into network addresses. This talk highlights several recent projects that aim to explore and understand how the modern DNS ecosystem has organically developed. We will first tackle the complexity of the system and then illustrate how that complexity causes potential security vulnerabilities. Finally, we will briefly sketch several possible mitigations to these security issues - which is the subject of ongoing work.
