It's never DNS

Christian and Simon will talk about all the things you never knew you needed to know about DNS, the Domain Name System. or at least as much as can be fit into a single talk. DNS is often referred to as the "phonebook of the Internet". It's so ubiquitous that almost anything we do on the Internet starts with a DNS query. Few areas of the Internet have as many RFC's that touch upon it as DNS.

We'll start by looking at the question "what is DNS?" and go from there. We will touch upon various areas of DNS; wildcard records, and why they sometimes don't work ...or at least not the way you'd expect. DNS privacy or the lack thereof. Why you should use DNSSEC alongside encrypted DNS. Towards the end, we'll talk a bit about what's cooking in the world of DNS.

**This event will be live-streamed on YouTube, so anyone can watch it here:

He's been working with DNS for close to two decades and is known to be messing around with DNSSEC. A pragmatist who's known for shooting down solutions that are too complex. Frequently doing woodworking, blacksmithing, or the occasional archery session when given time after tending to beehives.
