DNS enables everything else on the Internet — both good and bad. By watching what bad guys do with their DNS configurations and offering them differentiated (that is to say, poor) service, defenders can re-level the playing field in our favor. In this keynote address, Internet pioneer and CEO of Farsight Security, Inc., Dr. Paul Vixie, CEO of Farsight Security, will explain how the bad guys are exploiting DNS to commit fraud and other cybercrime and specific techniques you can use i.e. DNSSEC, TSIG, RRL and RPZ to defend your organization.
