DNS flag day improve the internet
In this episode of the ThreatTalk podcast, we are deciphering DNS Flag Days. Vice president of engineering and Infoblox chief DNS architect Cricket Liu joins us to discuss what DNS Flag Days are, why we need them and how they’re improving the Internet.
In case you’re not familiar, DNS Flag Days serve notices to obsolete Domain Name System (DNS) servers. They remind us that the Internet will no longer support the unproductive practice of accommodating pre-1999 standards. The goal of DNS Flag Days is to:
- Speed up DNS
- Improve DNS reliability
- Strengthen DNS security
