Casey Deccio, Brigham Young University

Casey Deccio is an Assistant Professor in the Computer Science Department at Brigham Young University. His research interests are in network measurement and anti-abuse for improved stability and security of the Internet. Prior to coming to BYU, he was a Senior Research Scientist at Verisign Labs since 2014, where his research included DNS ecosystem tools, monitoring, measurement, and modeling. Before that he was 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. While at Sandia he developed DNSViz, the widely used tool for DNS analysis and visualization. He also served as an ICANN Research Fellow supporting the Security and Stability Advisory Committee (SSAC) in 2013.
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 (power adapter recommended)
- Internet access
- VirtualBox installed on your laptop, preferably version 5.0 (latest)
- The tutorial demo VM image, downloaded, unzipped, and installed, following the instructions at: http://dnsviz.net/demo/
