In this episode, Geoff Huston joins PING to discuss the contradictory theory of a resolverless Domain Name System (DNS). It’s contradictory because the DNS is reliant on resolvers by nature.

We’ll discuss the historical process of how DNS names are resolved and how content providers, through their open DNS services, have sought to optimize this process. This optimization has led some, including Geoff, to consider ‘server push’ combined with DNSSEC as a viable means to speed up the DNS, reduce privacy leakage, and constrain the potential for failures.
