Watch DNS-OARC Live This Weekend For DNSSEC, DANE, DNS Privacy and more

By Dan YorkDirector, Internet Technology

DNS-OARC logoThis weekend in Montreal the OARC Fall 2015 Workshop will take place filled with all sorts of excellent talks about DNSSEC, DANE, DNS privacy, DNS performance and much, much more.  The best part is that if you can’t get there in person, you can watch the live video stream on YouTube at:

All the sessions will also be recorded for later viewing. The sessions most interesting to remote viewers start at 14:00 US EDT (UTC-4) on Saturday, October 3, 2015, and include these:

  • An Overview of DNS Privacy Mechanisms
  • Using TLS for DNS privacy in practice
  • Next Steps in DANE Adoption
  • Benchmarking of authoritative DNS servers and DNSSEC impact assessment

Sunday morning (October 4) brings a whole set of “DNS security” talks related to DDoS attacks and attacks against DNS servers.  There are performance-related talks, detailed research sessions, and a whole set of talks related to DNS resolvers, including an exploration of IPv6 vs IPv4 performance.

There were so many interesting proposals to DNS-OARC this time that some of them occupy the Monday DNS Track inside of NANOG 65.  Again there look to be some great DNSSEC topics including a session about the KSK Key Rollover. (One note: I’m not sure if the live stream on Monday will still be on the DNS-OARC YouTube channel – the NANOG agenda only says it will be “recorded”.)

All in all it looks to be a great event!  Due to a personal scheduling conflict, I won’t be there in person… but I intend to watch a few of the sessions, either live or later.
