“DNSSEC Will Become a Standard Part of Any Offering Over time,” Dr. Burt Kaliski, Verisign

Change has been constant in almost every facet of life throughout the past, and technology industry is no exception. There is no uniformity in technology; it keeps on developing, improving, re-inventing itself, and in the process also changing the way it diffuses across the society. It’s always a pleasant sight to have people and organizations that support, facilitate and ensure adoption of these changes. If not for them, we’d still be stuck in the world of dial-up internet, huge computers, and rotary dial telephones. Heck, we wouldn’t even have been able to reach that world itself. And Verisign is one such organization. Through its efforts to ensure operational deployment of DANE, DNNSEC , IPv6 and many more protocols/products that seek to replace the traditional systems in place to...

Europe Facing Exhaustion of IP Addresses

Europe has begun implementing stricter restraints for companies looking to use IPv4 addresses as it has almost exhausted its stock of old-style internet addresses. Ripe NCC that hands out addresses to European ISPs, firms and other organizations has started strict rationing of IPv4 as Europe. From now onwards, companies can make only one more application for the IPv4 addresses and on approval they can get only 1024 addresses.  Any company looking for more old addresses must need to demonstrate how an organisation is using the new, replacement, addressing scheme. Back in 1970’s when the web was built with 4.3 billion IP addresses , at that time it was thought that the addresses in the pocket are quite enough but the things changed drastically with the increase in web users. “The day h...
