Dr Casey Deccio (Verisign Labs)


Both the DNS and its security extensions (DNSSEC) are often met with deployment challenges that can affect the quality of (or the very possibility of) resolution. Various tools have been developed to test DNS services, both pre- and post-deployment. DNSViz, available both as a Web-based tool and as a command-line suite, introduces functionality to identify problems with a DNS deployment and present them in graphical or programmatic fashion. However, previously its functionality was limited to DNS zones that were already "live". We discuss new features that allow users to check the DNS changes pre-delegation, or otherwise prior to changes in parent or child zone, so an administrator can deploy with confidence and identify issues before they arise in production.
