I've Gotten Some Results from DNSDB: Now What?

Date: October 27

Time: 9am ET

You've successfully made a DNSDB query and gotten results -- but where do you go from there?

We know that DNSDB can at times be hard for new users to work with there may be tons of results, esoteric DNS record types, or users may simply wonder what to do with the answers they've received.

This session focuses on interpreting and postprocessing your results, summarizing and enhancing what you've found, translating DNSDB results into operational insights, and planning your next steps.

Learn about chasing CNAMEs, bailiwicks, dealing with wildcards, pivoting, effective 2nd-level domains, and much more. Examples will be provided in dnsdbq and dnsdbflex, DNSDB Scout, and using various Un*x command line tools. Time will be reserved at end of the session for Q&A.
