Security & Privacy Arc

Our guest is a long time colleague and friend, Suzanne Wolf. Suzanne is currently the Senior Director of Technical Community Engagement at Public Interest Registry  but this title does not describe her long and storied career and contribution to the Internet technical infrastructure and policy community. We discuss how Suzanne started her career back in the early days of the internet and her involvement in the Internet Engineering Task  Force (IETF). Suzanne explains how the IETF as a large open and international community of network engineers, researchers and operators work together to define standards and ensure the continued evolution and operation of the internet architecture. We talk about how the Domain Name System, the naming system for various resources on the internet was designed and what the consequences of those early design assumptions were. What were the lessons learned from previous attempts to improve the user experience by tinkering with the DNS such as SiteFinder? And are we set to repeat some of the same lessons learned with new developments such as recursive resolvers. Oh yes, we also try to touch on IPV6 and what we can expect with the proliferation Internet of Things (IoT) devices.
