This article is the third in the “Running your own DNS Resolver with MirageOS” series. In the first part, we used the ocaml-dns library to lookup the hostname corresponding with an IP address using its Dns_resolver_mirage module. In the second part, we wrote a simple DNS server, which serves RRs from a zone file using the Dns_server_mirage module. Today in the third
Here is a draft copy of the A1 poster I’ll be presenting at the 2nd Annual Oxbridge Women in Computer Science Conference in Oxford. The poster abstract is in a previous post.

Are you thinking of using a VPN to bypass DNS hijacking by your ISP (as described in Redirecting DNS for Ads and Profit and Middleboxes considered harmful: DNS Edition)? Then think again.

I am incredibly excited to announce that Raft Refloated will be featured in The Morning Paper, by Adrian, as part of a series of 10 posts on distributed consensus. Last month, the morning paper also featured our work on the Databox. Will the raft paper sink or swin? Let’s wait and see.
Redirecting DNS for Ads and Profit is one of the collection of papers from the ICSI team, with the results from the Netalyzr, network diagnosis tool. This paper focuses on the 66K session traces where DNS error traffic has been monetization and calls out Paxfire, for their role in this area, the paper focuses on NXDOMAIN wildcarding and search engine
Last time, we wrote a simple “dig like” unikernel. Given a domain and the address of a nameserver, the unikernel resolved the domain by asking the nameserver and returned the return to the console. Today, we will look at another way to resolve a DNS query, being a DNS server. This is useful in its own
