Thanks to everyone who participated in our previous webinars:

  • “RESOLVER USAGE IN THE EU”: In January 2022, ICANN’s Office of the Chief Technical Officer (OCTO) observed that 95% of consumers served by large European Union (EU) consumer ISPs are using their ISP- provided Domain Name System (DNS) resolvers. Only about 4% of consumers served by large EU consumer ISPs are using public resolvers such as Google Public DNS (3%), Cloudflare (0.6%), and Cisco OpenDNS (0.4%). This talk will explore those findings in more details. Video recording available here.
  • “DNSSEC 101”: To protect DNS data, it is important for DNS operators to understand DNS Security Extensions (DNSSEC). This course discuses the DNSSEC concepts in detail covering the signing and validation of DNS data. Vide recording available here.
