Want to learn the latest about DNS privacy? About the latest research and techniques to protect the confidentiality of your DNS info and queries?
Starting at 8:55 am PST (UTC-8) today, there will be what looks to be an outstanding workshop on DNS Privacy streaming live out of the Network and Distributed System Security Symposium (NDSS) in San Diego, California.
View the agenda of the DNS Privacy Workshop to see all the excellent sessions. You can then join live at:
(Other remote connection options can be found at the bottom of the agenda page.)
Note – this workshop is not about DNSSEC, which is a method to protect the integrity of DNS (to ensure DNS info is not modified in transit), but rather new work being done within the IETF to improve the confidentiality of DNS.
The sessions include:
- How DNS Works in Tor & Its Anonymity Implications
- DNS Privacy through Mixnets and Micropayments
- Towards Secure Name Resolution on the Internet – GNS
- Changing DNS Usage Profiles for Increased Privacy Protection
- DNS-DNS: DNS-based De-NAT Scheme
- Can NSEC5 be practical for DNSSEC deployments?
- Privacy analysis of the DNS-based protocol for obtaining inclusion proof
- Panel Discussion: The Tension between DNS Privacy and DNS Service Management
- The Usability Challenge for DNS Privacy and End Users
- An Empirical Comparison of DNS Padding Schemes
- DNS Service Discovery Privacy
- Trustworthy DNS Privacy Services
- EIL: Dealing with the Privacy Problem of ECS
- Panel Discussion: DNS-over-TLS Service Provision Challenges: Testing, Verification, internet.nl
If you are not there in person (as I will not be), you can also follow along on the #NDSS17 hashtag on Twitter. There will also be tweets coming out of:
Stéphane Bortzmeyer will also be attending (and speaking at) the workshop – and he is usually a prolific tweeter at @bortzmeyer.
The sessions will also be recorded for later viewing. I’m looking forward to seeing the activity coming out of this event spur further activity on making DNS even more secure and private.
Please do follow along remotely – and please do share this information with other people you think might be interested. Thank you!
