Authenticated Resolution and Adaptive Resolution: Security and Navigational Enhancements to the Domain Name System

The Domain Name System (DNS) has become the fundamental building block for navigating from names to resources on the internet. DNS has been employed continuously ever since its introduction in 1983, by essentially every internet-connected application and device that wants to interact online. Emerging from an era where interconnection rather than information security was the primary motivation, DNS has gradually improved its security features. DNS has also gradually enhanced its navigational capabilities, as computing costs have decreased over the decades. And thanks to further developments that are now underway, new…

Qname minimization alters the process of DNS resolution by limiting the content of DNS queries to the minimum…
