Graduation project TNO ICT – NCS/SEM 2010 Title TNO: Future DNS – infrastructure or service Contact Dr. Ir. M. Oskar van Deventer Ir. Mike Schenk Start To be decided, preferably early 2010 Location TNO, Brassersplein 2, Delft Description Background The Domain Name System (DNS) is a vital part of the internet. It is a distributed system that resolves domain names (e.g. "tno.nl") into IP addresses, services records and NAPTR records, enabling a wide variety of services including e-mail, web browsing, file transfer, web services, etcetera. Some companies are using DNS as basis for value-added services ("monetizing DNS"). Dynamic DNS for hosts with dynamic IP addresses, e.g. assigned via DHCP, e.g. dyndns.com, opendns.com User and infrastructure ENUM Blacklists (email), parental control, SW version updating Redirect to search page in case of non-valid lookup (“Google suggest” alike feature) Improved performance: Google’s Public DNS Intuitive / context aware naming At this moment, it is unclear how "DNS services" relates to "DNS as vital part of the internet infrastructure". The possible introduction of DNSsec in the DNS infrastructure may have a significant impact on de business model of some DNS services. Project description The graduate student should make a survey and technical analysis of DNS services and DNS infrastructure as currently used in the internet. The student should make a technical design and implementation of a selected DNS service, reusing existing open-source software components as much as possible. This should provide insight in how DNS services interact with generic internet services in terms of technology and business, and to what extend DNS services have impact to the integrity of the internet. We are looking for: A graduate student with a background in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science or similar. He/she should have a feeling for internet infrastructure protocols and in particular DNS related protocols and architectures. Programming skills are required for implementation. Experience with BIND and other DNS technologies is desirable, but not essential. We are offering: An interesting assignment, carried out in a stimulating environment, hopefully resulting in at least one publication.
