Insights on DNS Security

Thumbnail for post.

It is common knowledge that DNS is a critical Internet infrastructure that requires security enhancements. DNS servers can be abused to leverage malicious attacks and DNS information can be spoofed. That is why over the years, many protocols and standards were introduced around DNS data validation and privacy. 

This course will explore different insights on DNS security in the Asia-Pacific region, how we’re progressing with deploying DNSSEC, DNS privacy and other security protocols this year, as well as new efforts and initiatives on collectively promoting good DNS practices.

Course outline

This course will cover the following topics:

  • DNS Security Overview
  • DNSSEC across the region
  • DNS Best Practice

Root Server Deployment and Operations

Thumbnail for post.

Overview

In this course, three industry experts will be sharing their knowledge and experiences with root server deployment and operations.   

Firstly, Martin Pels will introduce the DNS Root Server System. During this talk he will describe the different types of root servers, and some of the (technical) details involved in running a DNS Root Server before concluding with recommendations for ISPs on how to contribute to a healthy Root Server ecosystem. 

Following this, Akira Kato will discuss how M-Root DNS Server started “small anycast” installation especially in Asia Pacific Region with APNIC. This talk will start with a brief overview of its traditional operational model, followed by the goal of “small anycast” sites. It will also explain the current model, status, and future plans.  

Our final speaker, Lars-Johan Liman, will share insights gained from 30 years’ operating a Root Name Server. I.root-servers.net recently celebrated 30 years of continuous operation. This talk illustrates some of the challenges with operating a root name server and how these challenges have changed over time. 

Outline

This course will cover the following topics:

Speaker One: Martin Pels  

  • Root Servers and the DNS hierarchy 
  • Root Server Operations 
  • What ISPs can do to contribute 

Speaker Two: Akira Kato  

  • Root DNS server operation 
  • Characteristics of Anycast 
  • Small Anycast operational model 

Speaker Three: Lars-Johan Liman 

  • Volunteer cooperation and collaboration work well as pillars for Internet’s infrastructure. 
  •  Political issues have always been a factor for operators of core Internet infrastructure and continue to be so. 
  • Evolving business models make it harder to provide infrastructure services free of charge.

Using RIPE Atlas for Network Diagnostics

Thumbnail for post.

Overview

RIPE Atlas is a global, open, distributed Internet measurement platform, consisting of thousands of measurement devices(probes) that measure Internet connectivity in real time. In this webinar, we will introduce the RIPE Atlas project and demonstrate measurements such as traceroute, DNS etc which can provide valuable insight into a network and enable troubleshooting. We will explore running measurements from the Web UI and also from the CLI, and finally share details about how you can host a software probe in your network.

Outline

This course will cover the following topics:

  • What is the RIPE Atlas project and why does it matter
  • Getting started with RIPE Atlas measurements – traceroute, dns etc
  • Demo of measurements from Web UI and CLI
  • Host a RIPE Atlas Software probe
