Main Session


Ms Cathy Almond (Internet Systems Consortium)


The major Open Source DNS Software providers along with a number of other organisations have declared a flag day, after which they will cease accommodating non-RFC-compliant behaviour when interacting with other servers.

This talk (a collaboration between the software providers and other committed parties) will first briefly summarise the versions of software that have removed the excess code complexity needed to interoperate with broken servers, and/or confirm the date on which their service will do the same.

Then it will cover in a little more detail what this means to ordinary operators who aren't necessarily DNS experts or operators - what effects might this have on them, either as organisations with their own authoritative DNS zones (self-managed or hosted), and/or for DNS resolution of other names and domains via their recursive servers.
- What problems might be encountered?
- How to resolve them?
