Casey Deccio, Verisign Labs

Casey Deccio is a Senior Research Scientist at Verisign Labs. Among his research and development interests and goals are DNSSEC deployment enhancements, DNS ecosystem tools/monitoring, and the measurement, modeling, and analysis of deployed Internet protocols, including DNS/DNSSEC and IPv6. While a Principal Research and Development Cyber Security Staff member at Sandia National Laboratories, where he had been employed since 2004, and where he was responsible for network-related research and development, including DNSSEC and IPv6 deployment efforts. At Sandia he developed DNSViz, the widely used Web-based tool for DNS analysis and visualization. Casey earned B.S. and M.S. degrees in Computer Science from Brigham Young University, and received a Ph.D. from UC Davis, in Computer Science. His dissertation was a study of dependencies in the DNS, which form a model for quantifying and improving DNS availability through careful deployment practices.
Abstract: DNSSEC enables the authentication of DNS responses. Despite this benefit, expert DNS operators have observed that there are challenges in understanding, deploying, monitoring and troubleshooting DNSSEC. DNSViz was developed to address these challenges by adding a suite to the existing DNS analysis tools in order to retrieve and analyze relevant DNS and DNSSEC information and present it to the user in graphical and programmatic formats.

This tutorial will get hands-on with DNSSEC concepts by performing some DNSSEC signing, validation and manipulation, and using DNSViz to analyze and monitor the configurations.

Prerequisites: The tutorial seeks to both instruct the DNSSEC novice and provide additional perspective to the DNSSEC experts. Some familiarity with DNS and Linux OS-based tools are helpful but not required.

Please come prepared to participate with:
Laptop computer
Laptop power adapter
Internet access
VirtualBox installed on your laptop, preferably version 5.0 (latest)
