The Event was “Day of technology and DNS Security”
This was the 3rd
of a very technical conference where network experts
discussed future trends in DNS Security, IP managing and IT Sec
This year Kaspersky Lab also participated and I had the opportunity
to give a presentation about attacks on network devices and network
attacks inside of the Colombian Internet space. We also showed how
Russian cybercriminal operations work inside the .CO space. Speaking
about .CO domains, these recently became very popular, which is why
even cybercriminals have begun to use them.
The good thing is that the .CO
takes security very seriously and takes down
malicious domains very quickly.
The list of the participants included: Nic
, Internet Society
, Ministry of Information Technologies
and Communications of Colombia
Raquel Gatto from Internet Society gave a presentation on the legal
side of the regulation of the Internet and called for collaboration
to make the Internet better. Official information is available at http://www.internetsociety.org/deploy360/experts/
Juan Alejo Peirano from Lacnic presented the current state of IPv4
in LatAm and the usage of IPv6 in the region. He also showed
practical scenarios of advanced network security by using IPv6 and
DNSSec as best practices.
Mauricio Vergara from Nic Chile gave a very nice presentation on the
practical management of DNS servers, how to secure them and what not
to do in order to avoid any problems. Also, he explained the way to
obtain protection against DDoS attacks by using anycast.
