Save the date for DNSheads Vienna #4! Join us for the informal get-to-gether and discuss everything around the Domain Name System on Oct 29!

(Note that we might hold this in German if everyone attending speaks German)


a) DNS Flag Day (Arsen Stasic, University of Vienna) - On February 1st 2019, several vendors of DNS server software are going to stop workarounds in the protocol, and some (misconfigured) domains might stop working. Are you prepared?

b) The root key rollover, finally! (Alex Mayrhofer, nic.at) - After a year of delay, ICANN is finally set to roll over the root key on October 11. We'll share some "post-mortem" findings regarding the procedure.

c) DNS Magnitude (Alex Mayrhofer, nic.at) - How do you measure the popularity of a domain name? DNS Magnitude is a simple, easy to understand figure to represent the relative "importance" of a domain name.

d) Socializing - Snacks and Drinks will be provided :)
