DNS Flag Day was the result of a collaborative effort and agreement of DNS implementers and DNS resolver operators to commit to no longer providing workarounds for non-standards-compliant authoritative nameservers as of 1 February 2019. In the lead up to DNS Flag Day, and as part of the outreach…

About the author
Willem Toorop is a developer and researcher at NLnet Labs. NLnet Labs is a non-profit research lab dedicated to the development of Open Source software and open standards for the benefit of the Internet. NLnet Labs mission is to provide globally recognized innovations and expertise for those technologies that turn a network of networks into an Open Internet for All. At NLnet Labs, Willem's topics of interest are end-user security and privacy. Willem has actively researched how DNSSEC may be hampered for end-users and looked into strategies to overcome such roadblocks. The results of this research are incorporated in the getdns resolver library and its associates stub resolver Stubby. Besides his work on getdns and Stubby, Willem is also the primary maintainer and developer of the other NLnet Labs DNS libraries: ldns and Net::DNS.
As cryptographic analysis and related technologies advance, the signing algorithms at the heart of DNSSEC have to keep up. Moritz Müller and colleagues take a look at barriers on the road to more secure algorithms and discuss ways to make the journey faster.
Network programming using XDP has been on our radar (and if you are reading this, possibly on yours too!) for a while now. As tooling around this technology has vastly improved, we decided that it was time to finally get our hands dirty and see what this technology is all about.
