On-Demand Webinar: Playing Offense with the Domain Name System
Dr. Paul Mockapetris created the Domain Name System (DNS) in 1983 with an initial goal of replacing the centralized host table of names with a decentralized database, but it was always intended to be extensible to new problems and applications. Today, DNS is the backbone of the Internet, enabling all online transactions, good or bad, around the world.
In a rare conversation, ThreatSTOP Chief Scientist Dr. Paul Mockapetris, the inventor of DNS, and Farsight Security CEO Dr. Paul Vixie, who designed, implemented and deployed several DNS protocol extensions and applications that are used throughout the Internet today, will discuss a number of topics including:
- The evolution of DNS and how it has been weaponized by cybercriminals to commit fraud, espionage and other cybercrime
- Specific DNS-based techniques used by the bad guys to infiltrate today's enterprises
- How organizations can play offense against these attacks, including utilizing the DNS to better secure their infrastructure, intellectual property and customers.
- The future of DNS – and its pivotal role in security moving forward
