  4. 4. What is the internet?  The internet is a global system of interconnected computer networks . It is a network of networks that consists of millions of private and public , academic , business and government networks of local to global space that are linked by transmission media such as copper wires , fiber optic cables , wireless connections and other technologies .
  5. 5. How do they Connect?  A network of computers connected to each other is called internet and these computers needed to know which computer they were connecting to, so each computer was given a unique number – an IP (Internet Protocol) number. E.g. 121.245.078.2
  6. 6. In the Beginning...  There was the ARPANET’s HOSTS.TXT file    Each computer on the network retrieved a file called HOSTS.TXT HOSTS.TXT mapped every ARPANET host’s name to its IP address. The HOSTS.TXT file mapped numerical addresses to names.   Allows users to specify an IP address (e.g. 192.0.34.166) to use for a host name (e.g. www.google.com) without checking DNS. Systems based on a hosts file have inherent limitations
  7. 7. The Problems with HOSTS.TXT  Consistency  The network changed more quickly than the file was updated  Name collisions  No two hosts could have the same name  “Good” names quickly exhausted  There was no good method to prevent duplicate names  Human  intervention was required Traffic and load
  8. 8. Solving the Problem  ARPANET powers-that-were launched an investigation into replacement for HOSTS.TXT  Requirements:  Decentralized administration  With data updated locally, but available globally A hierarchical name space  To guarantee unique names
  9. 9. Domain Name System ?  The domain name system is usually used to translate a host name into an IP address and vice versa.  Domain names comprise a hierarchy so that names are unique, yet easy to remember.  DNS implements a distributed database to store domain name and address information for all public hosts on the Internet.  Defines a hierarchical namespace where each level of the namespace is separated by a “.”
  10. 10. Continued… A fully qualified domain name is processed from right to left for its translation into the corresponding IP address. A fully qualified domain name can be made up of a top level domain (TLD), second level domain (SLD) and sub domains
  11. 11. Domain Names  A domain name is the sequence of labels from a node to the root, separated by dots (“ . ”), read left to right
  12. 12. in
  13. 13. Subdomains  One domain is a subdomain of another if its apex node is a descendant of the other’s apex node  More simply, one domain is a subdomain of another if its domain name ends in the other’s domain name  So abc.webs.com is a subdomain of  webs.com  com  webs.com is a subdomain of com
  14. 14. Components of the DNS : The Name Space  The Servers  The Resolver
  15. 15. The Name Space  The name space is the structure of the DNS database  An  inverted tree with the root node at the top Each node has a label The root node "" top-level node second-level node third-level node top-level node second-level node second-level node third-level node top-level node second-level node third-level node second-level node
  16. 16. Name Servers  Name servers store information about the name space in units called “zones”  The name servers that load a complete zone are said to “have authority for” or “be authoritative for” the zone  Usually, more than one name server are authoritative for the same zone  This ensures redundancy and spreads the load  Also, a single name server may be authoritative for many zones
  17. 17. Types of Name Servers :Two main types of servers  Local name servers:  Each ISP, company has local (default) name server  Host DNS query first goes to local name server Authoritative name server:  For a host: stores that host’s IP address, name  Can perform name/address translation for that host’s name
  18. 18. Root Name Server  Contacted by local name server that can not resolve name  Root name server:  contacts authoritative name server if name mapping not known  Gets mapping & returns mapping to local name server
  19. 19. Name Resolution   Name resolution is the process by which client and Local name servers cooperate to find data in the name space. A Local name server receives a query from a client , looks for the answer in its database  If the answer isn’t in the database and the server isn’t authoritative for the answer, the answer must be looked up.
  20. 20. The Resolution Process  Let’s look at the resolution process stepby-step: Client Computer www.google.com
  21. 21. The Resolution Process  The client computers asks its Local name server, for www.google.com’s address Local Name Server What’s the IP address of www.google.com? Client Computer www.google.com
  22. 22. The Resolution Process  The Local name server asks a Root name server , for www.google.com’s address Local Name Server What’s the IP address of www.google.com? Client Computer www.google.com Root Server
  23. 23. The Resolution Process  The root server refers Local name server to the .com name servers. Local Name Server Client Computer www.google.com Root Server Here’s a list of the .com name servers. Ask one of them.
  24. 24. The Resolution Process  The Local name server asks .com name server, for www.google.com’s address What’s the IP address of www.google.com? Root Server Local Name Server .com Server Client Computer www.google.com
  25. 25. The Resolution Process  The com name server refers Local name server to the google.com name servers Here’s a list of the google.com name servers. Ask one of them. Root Server Local Name Server .com Server Client Computer www.google.com
  26. 26. The Resolution Process  The Local name server asks google.com name server, for www.google.com’s address What’s the IP address of www.google.com? Root Server Local Name Server Google.com Server .com Server Client Computer www.google.com
  27. 27. The Resolution Process  The google.com name server responds with www.google.com’s address Root Server Local Name Server Here’s the IP address for www.google.com Google.com Server .com Server Client Computer www.google.com
  28. 28. The Resolution Process  The Local name server responds to client computer with www.google.com’s address Here’s the IP address for www.google.com Root Server Local Name Server Google.com Server .com Server Client Computer www.google.com
  29. 29. Resolution Process (Caching)  After the previous query, the Local name server now knows:  The names and IP addresses of the com name servers  The names and IP addresses of the servers  The  google.com IP address of www.google.com Let’s look at the resolution process again Client Computer www.google.com name
  30. 30. Resolution Process (Caching)  The client computer asks its Local name server, for www.google.com’s address Root Server Local Name Server What’s the IP address of google.com? Google.com Server .com Server Client Computer www.google.com
  31. 31. Resolution Process (Caching)  The Local name server responds to client computer with www.google.com’s address Here’s the IP address for google.com Root Server Local Name Server Google.com Server .com Server Client Computer www.google.com
  32. 32. Conclusion  DNS is like a phone book for the Internet. If we know a person’s name but don’t know his mobile number, we can simply look it up in a phone book. DNS provides this same service to the Internet.  When we visit www.google.com in a browser, our computer uses DNS to retrieve the website’s IP address of 173.194.69.147 .
