Matt Larson, Verisign

Matt Larson is Vice President of DNS Research in Verisign Labs, where he works as a specialist in DNS protocol and operational issues. He is an active participant in the wider DNS community and the co-author of three O'Reilly & Associates Nutshell Handbooks ("DNS on Windows Server 2003", "DNS on Windows 2000" and "DNS on Windows NT"). He also co-authored the core DNSSEC standards documents: RFCs 4033, 4034 and 4035.
Abstract: I propose to teach my approximately one-hour DNSSEC introductory class. This is the same tutorial I taught at NANOG51 in Miami. The class covers the motivation for DNSSEC and an overview of how it works, down to the level of individual DNS resource records. It's comprehensive but not overwhelming: I believe it's very understandable. Students need to know what public/private key cryptography and digital signatures are, or they'll be a bit lost, and a very high level understanding of DNS would be helpful, too (e.g., knowledge of what a zone is). There's probably a nicer-looking abstract than this one already on file from NANOG 51... The tutorial went well last time and I'd enjoy teaching it again.
