Internet 2025
The evolution of the Internet has transformed the way we work and live our lives, including even the way we drive our cars – or let the cars drive us. The Internet is in constant flux.

In “Internet 2025,” Paul will provide his historical perspective on the evolution of the Internet and a preview of the changes we can expect to see to the Internet superhighway – including Domain Name System (DNS) – over the next 10 years and steps organizations can take today to secure their business and employees.

14:45 – 15:30 Jean-Yves Bisiaux, CTO and Founder of EfficientIP

The landscape of DNS Threats
DNS is now the favorite target and even vector of cyber-attacks of the Hackers. The damage they could generate is huge, like during the recent attack on Dyn last December.

The legacy security solutions were not designed to protect this specific protocol and are very often blind to some DNS attack. Hackers can very easy exfiltrate data from a network using the DNS protocol or creating a DNS tunnel.

The presentation will present the wide landscape of DNS threats and the rends in terms of DNS security to really secure business and protect data.

15:30 – 16:00 Kaffeepause
16:00 – 18:00 Paul Vixie and Jean-Yves Bisiaux
co-moderated by Euan Ramsay, CSIRT for UBS SOC Switzerland and Daniel Stirnimann, DNS and Security Engineer at SWITCH
