Attacks on internet names


Hecht, Fabio V; Poullie, Patrick; Vancea, Andrei; Stiller, Burkhard (2012). Attacks on internet names. Readme, (28):14-15.

Abstract

The Domain Name System (DNS) determines the major component in today's Internet, as it maps memorable names, such as www.uzh.ch into routable Internet Protocol addresses, such as 136.105.200.244. Since the early days of trusted hosts in the Internet have passed, the potential of severe attacks on DNS has reached a level of higher risk, e.g. DNS Spoofing or Cache Poisoning, such that work on DNS Security Extensions (DNSSEC) did commence. However, the deployment of DNSSEC has not reached that large attention needed to safeguard fully future Internet communications for all services.
