ICANN DNS Symposium | July 2018
The theme for the IDS 2018 was: "Attention, Domain Name System: Your 30-year scheduled maintenance is overdue."
Remarkable as it may seem, the Domain Name System (DNS) is well into its thirties. The DNS began as an exercise to improve the scaling properties of mapping host names on the ARPANET to Internet addresses, and to also help decentralize email box names. In 30 years, we have evolved from the early experimentation and implementation of the formative domain name standards to a distributed name resolution system with millions of name servers that process billions of queries daily.
The DNS runs remarkably well and most users think of it as rock solid. But perhaps the system could be made healthier, or could be improved to support even further innovation. What if we put the DNS through a scheduled maintenance with the kind of full diagnostic assessment routinely recommended for high performance vehicles?
IDS 2018 had members of research, academia, and operational communities sharing experiences, data, and innovative thinking on how we might improve the DNS.
