Description

DNS(Domain Name System) is the crucial & ubiquitous fabric for the Internet. Despite the fact that there are 13 root servers (1084 instances in Anycast) all around the world, the resiliency & the security of the DNS has been an ongoing probing question. This presentation explores the following questions

How do we increase the resiliency of the root servers ?
How do we stop sending junk queries to the root servers ?
How do we reduce the access time to the root servers ?
How do we increase the privacy by hiding queries made to the root servers ?
RFC7706/8806 provides us answers to these questions. Plus, I will demonstrate an interesting project (Localroot) which allows anyone to run a local copy of the DNS root zone.
