RE: DNS hardening, was Re: Dan Kaminsky

That is, of course, assuming that SCTP implementations someday clean up their act a bit. I'm not so sure I'd suggest that they're really ready for "prime time" at this point.

SCTP DNS would be intended for ISPs validating DNS where there would be fewer issues regarding SOHO routers. It seems likely DNS will require some kernel adjustments to support persistent SCTP. SCTP has been providing critical SS7 and H.248.1 services for many years now, where TCP would not be suitable. FreeBSD 7 represents a solid SCTP reference implementation.

SCTP has far fewer issues going to homes connected via IPv6.
