The DNS has become a piece of the critical infrastructure of the internet; without it most users would be unable to do anything. However, both the scale of use and how it's being used (and abused) were not things imagined when the DNS was originally designed. This tutorial will go over various threats to your servers, how to mitigate these threats, information on how the DNS is being abused in DDOS attacks and how you can help to not be part of the problem.


This presentation is intended as an introductory tutorial for members of the audience who may be less familiar with some of the issues within OARC's remit - it is open to all and NANOG/ARIN participants are particularly welcome to attend.
