New research on self-management of anycast networks for DNS

The new project, entitled SAND (Self-Managing Anycast Networks for DNS), will be conducted and coordinated by Ricardo de O. Schmidt (posdoc at DACS), under supervision of Prof.dr. Aiko Pras, in cooperation with SIDN Labs, NLnet Labs and RIPE NCC. This project focuses on, among others, the development of an automated DNS system that deal with changes in Internet connectivity by (i) monitoring performance parameters of the DNS anycast services, (ii) dynamically reconsider DNS nodes placement, and (iii) dynamically instantiate new DNS nodes accordingly to new Internet conditions.
