Attention DNS Experts - OARC 38 Call for Contributions

Hello DNS experts in the NANOG Community,

OARC 38 will be holding a two-day hybrid meeting held on July 30th and 31st, 2022 starting at 10 am (Eastern). The onsite part of the meeting will be colocated with IETF 114 (Philadelphia).

The OARC Programme Committee is seeking contributions from the community.

All DNS-related subjects and suggestions for discussion topics are welcome. For inspiration, we provide a non-exhaustive list of ideas:

  • Operations: Any operational gotchas, lessons learned from an outage, details/reasons for a recent outage (how to improve TTR, tooling).
  • Deployment: DNS config management and release process.
  • Monitoring: Log ingestion pipeline, analytics infrastructure, anomaly detection.
  • Scaling: DNS performance management and metrics. Increasing DNS Server Efficiency
  • Security/Privacy: DNSSEC signing and validation, key storage, rollovers, qname minimization, DoH/DoT

As it is an hybrid workshop, we’d like to encourage brevity; presentations should not be longer than 20 minutes (with additional time for questions).
