The Domain Name System Operations, Analysis, and Research Centre (DNS OARC), North American Network Operators Group (NANOG) and American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN) held back-to-back meetings in San Jose, USA, earlier this month.
DNS OARC 27, held from 29 September to 3 October, had four days of workshops on topics including the study of DNS rate limiting, persistent DNS sessions, and ICANN Root KSK rollover discussions.

NANOG 71, held from 2 to 4 October, comprised several tracks of technical content and discussions on security, routing, peering and the DNS, to name a few. There was also a Hackathon held on 30 September to 1 October for network operators to develop new ideas and hacks for automating production Internet networks.

ARIN 40 was held from 5 to 6 October and included public policy and member meeting presentations as well as a report on ASO activities. The ARIN AC recommended draft policy ‘ARIN-2017-5: Improved IPv6 Registration Requirements’, and advanced it to a last call period, and abandoned ‘Draft Policy ARIN-2017-6: Improve Reciprocity Requirement for Inter-RIR Transfers’.
- Geoff Huston gave a presentation on DNS over IPv6 – a study in fragmentation at DNS-OARC 27 on his work analysing the DNS risks when using IPv6 transport, with his results indicating that DNSSEC will not work well over IPv6 and depends on IPv4 for the fall-back.
- At NANOG 71 Geoff presented on IPv6, the DNS and Big Packets on the ability to send fragmented IPv6 datagrams through today’s IPv6 Internet and the success of sending fragmented IPv6 DNS packets. Watch a video of Geoff’s presentation:
