Google has fixed an IPv6 fragmentation handling problem in their Public DNS Service.
Geoff recaps some highlights from the technical presentations at RIPE 75 in Dubai.
Learn how to use a raw socket interface in IPv6 to generate a UDP-based DNS server and a TCP-based HTTP(S) server that allows the application to exercise direct control over packet fragmentation.
Some of the highlights from DNS-OARC 27 held in San Jose from 29 September to 3 October 2017.
Why has the DNS Root Zone KSK roll been postponed? Geoff Huston digs into the data to explain.
Opinion: Rather than being condemned, perhaps we should appreciate the role that NATs play in the evolution of the architecture of the Internet?
In part two of his IPv6 fragmentation research posts, Geoff Huston turns his attention to measuring the packet drop rate when sending fragmented packets to IPv6 end hosts.
Is IPv6 fragmentation a fixable problem in the DNS, and if so, how?
After sharing my notes from the IEPG meeting and aspects of the DNS, here are the rest of the items that I personally found to be of interest at IETF 99 last week.
Interest in the DNS appears to come in waves and we seem to be be in the midst of a furious burst of activity.
