Part of the ‘Three of the best’ series, highlighting the most popular posts from the past 12 months.

APNIC’s Chief Scientist, Geoff Huston, has made a career out of researching how the Internet works and how it could work better. In 2020, Geoff delivered several insightful posts, with an emphasis on the DNS.

  1. Where is the DNS heading? — Privacy, encryption and the rise of open DNS resolvers.
  2. Scaling the root of the DNS — A school of thought treats the root zone of the DNS as a root zone like any other. Its sheer size means it isn’t the same, with a number of important differences.
  3. IPv6 and the DNS — Is the DNS actually handling the Happy Eyeballs transition to IPv6 the way in which we expect it to?
