While much attention is given to website attacks, domain name hijacking and attacks on the Domain Name System (DNS) are often overlooked. The Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA) tracks and monitors trends on the Canadian and global Internets and provides technology for organizations to help protect their online presence.
This talk will provide an overview of domain name and DNS security risks before delving into how domain names are hijacked and the DNS exploited. Presenters will help administrators understand the technology that can be used to help combat hackers, including:
- Best practices for securing a domain name portfolio and preventing domain name hijacking
- Analysis of typical DNS configurations seen across Canadian municipalities and their associated risks
- Methods for strengthening the DNS using Anycast technology
- Case studies from recent attacks, describe how they were mitigated, and how they could have been avoided altogether.
