Distinguished Paper Award at USENIX Security 2017 for DACS researcher

DACS researcher Roland van Rijswijk-Deij and his co-authors received a Distinguished Paper Award at the 26th USENIX Security Symposium held in Vancouver, BC, Canada, 16-18 August 2017.

The paper is entitled "A Longitudinal, End-to-End View of the DNSSEC Ecosystem", and was written by lead author Taejoong Chung from Northeastern University in Boston, USA, in collaboration with researchers from DACS, TU Berlin, the University of Maryland, Duke University and Akamai.

The paper provides a comprehensive view on the state of DNSSEC deployment both from the perspective of domain name owners, and from the perspectives of clients that validate DNSSEC-signed domains. The paper makes extensive use of data from the OpenINTEL [1] project, a collaboration between DACS, SIDN Labs and SURFnet.

The paper is available as open access from the USENIX Association website:

Congratulations, Roland!
