Query name minimization and authoritative server behavior


  • Mr. Shumon HUQUE

Primary authors

Abstract content

This talk will provide an overview of DNS query name minimization algorithms (an approach to DNS privacy), and discuss the behavior of some authoritative DNS servers in the presence of a resolver that performs qname minimization. I'll provide a survey of results of the Alexa top 1000 domains, and discuss some observed defective behavior of a few CDNs and DNS hosting providers that will need to be addressed before these new resolution algorithms can be used widely.
