Session Description:

Nearly 50 percent of U.S. Federal domains and a significant number of worldwide governmental, commercial, nonprofit and business domains are now secured with DNSSEC, the Domain Name System Security Extensions. Yet large-scale domain name attacks and vulnerabilities continue, not just to the DNS, but to other applications that rely on the DNS to store information.   DNSSEC provides the means to protect application information stored in the DNS, in effect, making DNS a trust infrastructure that other applications can utilize.

In the quest to make DNSSEC a useful trust infrastructure for Internet applications, this session will look at the remaining challenges and emerging trends in U.S. Federal DNSSEC deployment; share new DNSSEC-aware applications; and conduct a wide-ranging discussion of the future of domain-name security with leading Federal and private-sector DNS experts.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand where U.S. Federal DNSSEC deployments stand, and the impact of reductions in Federal data centers and domain names on .gov deployment.
  • Learn about new DNSSEC-aware apps that can help speed or ease deployment.
  • Learn where DNSSEC will lead Federal and worldwide Internet security next, in the face of large-scale domain-name attacks and other challenges.
  • Hear from DNSSEC & Infrastructure Providers

Who Should Attend:

  • Policy Makers
  • CTO's
  • CIO's
  • CISO's
  • Directors of Networking            
  • Directors of Security
  • Systems Administrators
  • Network Engineers
  • Information Assurance Professionals
