RE: "VeriSign Moves DNS Server To Boost Security"
It won't be long till most of us on NANOG will know where geographically it's located. The network community is not that big, and thanks to the various trade related conferences fairly closely knit, that if you really wanted to know, someone at verisign will tell you which building it's in. Secrecy of where it's located isn't really going to stop the ddos attacks, most packeters know how to do a traceroute, and slam the routers a few hops in front of host. And it's kind of hard to run into a data center with a bucket full of water anyways, even if you knew which data center and rack it was located in.
