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.
