|0930hrs - 1000hrs: What's Going on in the world of DNS |
This is a 20-minute broad overview of the current challenges in the DNS ecosystem for network operators and policy makers. It is intended for a technical audience. It discusses some of the issues surrounding applications doing their own DNS (e.g. DoH), end user privacy issues, the issue of increasing DNS resolver centralization, a brief update on the KSK roll, and it goes over a recent DNS attack that was very interesting called DNSpionage.
David Huberman, ICANN
|1000hrs - 1030hrs: A New Internet? Introduction to HTTP/2, QUIC, DOH and DOQ|
This talk will introduce three basic new protocols (with references to several IETF documents) that are already changing the way Internet works and are very relevant for operators. HTTP/2 was introduced already in 2015, based on the SPDY protocol developed and tested by Google. It allows multiplexing several requests into a single TCP connection, improving performance and avoiding the need to queue those request in the client and blocking among them. During the SPDY development, it was also obvious that TCP is inefficient for most of the actual Internet usages, so this work (IETF QUIC WG) is developing a UDP-based, stream-multiplexing, encrypted transport protocol. Finally, the DNS over HTTPS (DOH) IETF WG, is standardizing the encoding of DNS queries and responses over HTTPS, which will solve certain problems of existing DNS methods. This will avoid that authorities impose traffic discriminations or censorship, as if they wish to do so, with DOH they will need to restrict full access to the web server providing the DOH.
