Description

As part of the IETF's efforts to secure all protocols against pervasive surveillance, several privacy enhancements to the DNS are actively being developed with prototype implementations of such enhancements also emerging. This talk will provide a technical description of these mechanisms as well as deployment challenges and related considerations. Topics to be covered will include query-name minimization, DNS over TLS/DTLS and other encryption proposals, payload padding, etc. We will also cover related efforts to minimize leakage of DNS names in other protocols.
