IEEE Security and Privacy Issue on Securing the Domain Name System
September/October 2009 Issue

Submissions due January 15, 2009

The Domain Name System (DNS) is a critical part of the Internet
infrastructure and virtually every Internet application depends on
some form of DNS data. Security was not a major goal of the original
DNS design and basic security issues are well known. Today, both the
attacks and defenses are becoming increasingly sophisticated.
Motivated by both the importance of the DNS and recent enhancements,
this upcoming issue of IEEE Security & Privacy looks at the challenges
in securing the DNS.

We seek feature articles with an in-depth coverage of topics relating
to all aspects of DNS security. Among potential topics are:

- analysis of DNS vulnerabilities,
- techniques of mitigating the impact  of denial of service attacks on  
  the DNS,
- deployment experience with DNS Security,
- techniques for managing DNSSEC public keys and signatures,
- providing DNSSEC benefits to end system resolvers,
- proposals for learning DNSSEC public keys, and
- legal and privacy issues in DNS data

Submissions will be subject to peer-review resulting in refereed
scientific papers. Articles should be understandable to a broad
audience of people interested in security and privacy and be less than
6,000 words.  The writing should be down-to-earth, practical, and
original. Authors should not assume that the audience will have
specialized experience in a particular subfield. All accepted articles
will be professionally copyedited according to the IEEE Computer
Society style guide.
