Meet the Authors: DNS Insecurity, or DNS in Security?
ThreatTalk season 4 episode 7
Is your DNS a security risk, or are you taking advantage of its strengths as a security tool? In this episode of ThreatTalk, we talk with Josh Kuo and Ross Gibson about their new security book titled “The Hidden Potential of DNS in Security.” The first of a 3-part series, we will discuss highlights from the book and the use cases that drove them to produce such a comprehensive reference on a commonly overlooked security resource.
