Session Abstract

This talk details the outcome of an initial REN-ISAC supported survey on the robustness and security posture of the DNS in the educational community. Starting with data from the .edu top-level domain zone file, we perform a number of tests on the name service supporting hundreds of the institutions represented. We then detail a summary of our findings and some surprising case examples. This work forms a piece of a set of new DNS-based monitoring, analysis and early warning system projects we will be unveiling.
