DNS has become part of the foundation layer of the internet. On the surface it is a simple protocol, but all the small details make it a very complex system. We will dive into the newer parts of DNS and look at operational and architectural problems from different perspectives.
If you are involved with DNS, this is the track for you. You do not have to be an expert on the DNS protocol or know all the flags be heart. Although some talks will dive deep into technology, we will work hard to make it understandable to everybody who knows what DNS is.
In the last few years a lot of DNS development has happend around resolvers. We will take a closer look on what is happening in that area with large providers and how you could protect your own DNS data.
Other areas of interest are DNS policy, DNS for containers and service discovery.
