28 AUG 2017

Roland van Rijswijk-Deij, SURFnet employee and researcher at the University of Twente, and his co-authors, received a Distinguished Paper Award. The paper provides a comprehensive view on the state of DNSSEC deployment. They received the award during the 26th USENIX Security Symposium held in Vancouver.

International paper on DNSSEC

The paper is entitled 'A Longitudinal, End-to-End View of the DNSSEC Ecosystem (pdf)', and was written by lead author Taejoong Chung from Northeastern University in Boston, USA, in collaboration with researchers from University of Twente, TU Berlin, the University of Maryland, Duke University and Akamai.

Comprehensive view on DNSSEC deployment

The paper provides a comprehensive view on the state of DNSSEC deployment both from the perspective of domain name owners, and from the perspectives of clients that validate DNSSEC-signed domains. The paper makes extensive use of data from the OpenINTEL-project, a collaboration between DACS, SIDN Labs and SURFnet.

SURFnet is one of the pioneers in the area of DNSSEC at both national and international level and is researching how DNSSEC can be implemented most effectively. For example, we collaborate in The Root Canary Project with the University of Twente, Northeastern University, NLnet Labs, RIPE NCC and ICANN.
