There are problems brewing. On-going and increasing problems with privacy leaks is the most talked about but there is also a growing use of DNS queries for malicious software to communicate and ping home.

These problems prompt a response and various, mostly commercial, efforts are underway or have already been deployed. None of them, however, present a truly open and transparent approach which we argue is needed.

In Sweden the government recently approved funding for the DNS TAPIR project which aim at such an open solution. The project has barely been initiated, so this talk is mostly about the problem space rather than any particular results.
