Defining a DNS Statistical Core

11 Aug 2020, 14:25
Standard Presentation Online Workshop




For the purposes of long-term statistical studies of the DNS, a "DNS Statistical Core" is introduced. This is meant to be a basis for statistical studies but the development of the core's map has been its own interesting project. "Core" in the name refers to the inclusion of the global public Internet's root zone, top-level zones, reverse map zones and other affiliated zones, relying mostly on access to reports of process activity related to the Root Registry, widely available zone files and other resources. The map produces JSON-formatted files for consumption by observation and analysis scripts, with easy access to many features of zones, nameservers, and addresses involved.


A discussion of something that could help many research projects.
