The Big DNS Privacy Debate
The Big DNS Privacy Debate
bert hubert — 15 Feb 2019

At the recent FOSDEM 2019 meeting, there were three presentations about DNS over HTTPS. In the following post, I will attempt to give a neutral description of what I think we learned, and where we now are on DNS over HTTPS (DoH), with a focus on the European perspective. If you find a noticeable bias, please let me know urgently and I’ll address it. But to be clear, I’m no fan of centralising the DNS on a small number of cloud providers. After the neutral description you will find some strong opinions on the desirability of ‘DNS over Cloud’.… Read more

Secure Machine Learning for Network Analytics
Secure Machine Learning for Network Analytics
Andreas Dewes — 14 Feb 2019

Analysing network data to detect anomalies, such as intrusions, is an effective and proven technique for threat detection. However, it is a very intensive task, and continues to become more so with the growing demand for cybersecurity services. Among the craze surrounding Artificial Intelligence (AI), there has been an interest in using Deep Learning (DL) within the networking and network security communities to improve efficiency and to reduce the risk of mistakes with detecting anomalies in network data.… Read more

Statistical Characterisation of RTT Series
Statistical Characterisation of RTT Series
Maxime Mouchet — 06 Feb 2019

Statistical characterisation of Round Trip Times (RTT) series is useful for network management. For example, if several paths are available between a source and a destination, say in a routing overlay context, it may be useful to select the path dynamically based on some inference on the current Quality of Service (QoS) of each path. In this post we explain how HDP-HMM models can be used to model RTT series and discuss possible applications of such modeling.… Read more
