Event Title

Domain Name System: an extensive summary

Session

Computer Science and Communication Engineering

Description

The Domain Name System protocol, or DNS, is one of the first processes to enable a given user to communicate with a desired resource - mainly a website. As such, the DNS protocol has served as a building block of the Internet architecture and, to this day, continues to be extended and considered a relevant topic, mostly through the extensions proposed by standardization bodies aiming to (primarily) enforce the protection of the user’s privacy. This study will analyze the DNS architecture, protocol format, and the communication structure of the participants of the DNS, in order to clarify the benefits, functional drawbacks and their implications for the general public.

Keywords:

DNS, protocol, Internet, architecture, DNSSEC, DNS over TLS, DNS over HTTPS.
