Mr Sebastian Castro (NZRS)


NZRS has been running zone scans on a monthly basis over the active .nz domain names for the past two years. We are using dnscheck with custom changes to collect DNS health information, as well as IPv6 deployment metrics. The data is of no use if it can't be made readily available to interested parties. To sort this out, NZRS will start using an open data portal provided by Socrata to allow open access to the zone scan and other datasets about the registry operations. The data portal will allow to download the data, but also to explore it in a visual way. This presentation will cover - Methodology and infrastructure to run the zone scan - Overview of the data collected - Introduction to the open data portal (possibly a demo) - Some interesting findings. Time required: Ideally 30 minutes, but can be adjusted to be a lightning talk.
