The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) announced the resumption of the seventh Middle East DNS Forum (MEDNSF), postponed last year. The event, organized by ICANN and hosted by the Saudi Communications and Information Technology Commission (CITC), will be held virtually from 5-7 April this year.

The Forum features presentations and panel discussions on topics ranging from the growing demand for Domain Name System (DNS) security, opportunities and challenges in the domain name industry, and the importance and benefits of using the Arabic script on the Internet.

ICANN's Chief Technology Officer David Conrad will give a keynote on the "DNS of Tomorrow" discussing the current DNS landscape and ecosystem, emerging standards and challenges (including the DNS Over HTTPS (DoH) and DNS over TLS (DoT)), and other emerging technologies' potential impact on the DNS.
