Peering and DNS are the global network’s technological foundation

On August 22−23, the Vietnamese city of Nha Trang is hosting the fourth annual VNIX-NOG Conference, dedicated to peering and DNS issues. The conference is organized by the Vietnam Internet Network Information Center (VNNIC) with the support of APNIC, Facebook, ISOC and IPTP Network.

VNNIC Director Tran Minh Tan spoke at the opening ceremony. He said that peering and DNS are the foundation of the global network, and therefore exchanging experience in this area with other countries, businesses and international experts is very important.

According to Tran Minh Tan, conferences devoted to technology issues concerning the operation and development of the internet are useful for all participants because they provide a place for making decisions that allow the network to develop as an integral whole.

Mikhail Anisimov, Head of External Communications at the Coordination Center, spoke at the session Internet, DNS Operation & New Technologies. He told the audience how the stability and reliability of the DNS system is supported in the Russian national domains.

He also talked about the infrastructure of Russian domains and about the steps taken by the Coordination Center and the Technical Center of Internet to ensure the stable and uninterrupted operation of the Russian domain space. In particular, he told the audience about how the backup register and the distributed domain name system work, as well as about the measures taken to prevent DDoS attacks.

“It is possible to ensure the stable operation of the Russian domain internet infrastructure by improving interconnectivity and building and developing the distributed infrastructure. The Russian internet is an inseparable part of the global network, and exchanging experience with our foreign colleagues on these issues helps us make the global network even more reliable,” Anisimov concluded.
