Video: Geoff Huston on Measuring DNSSEC from the User’s Perspective (RIPE 68)

How do you best measure DNS-related metrics from the perspective of an end user?  How many users are actually using DNSSEC validation?  What countries have the highest level of DNSSEC validation?  What role does Google’s Public DNS play in helping with this?

These are all questions that APNIC’s Geoff Huston addressed in his talk “Measuring DNS from the User’s perspective” at the recent RIPE68 meeting in Warsaw.  His slides are now online with some very interesting charts around DNSSEC validation.  I enjoy listening to Geoff and think you’ll find this quite an interesting talk:

And then… can you set up DNSSEC validation on your own network?  That will help you get the benefit of the added security of DNSSEC in your own usage of the Internet.
