"Two years ago at the Black Hat USA 2008 conference, security
researcher Dan Kaminsky detailed a critical flaw in DNS that could
have destroyed the Internet as we know it. Two years later, the
root zone of Internet DNS is now signed with DNSSEC, partially as a
response and a solution to Kaminsky's 2008 finding.
"A panel of experts, including Kaminsky, addressed the issue of
DNS security and what's next at the Black Hat USA 2010 conference
currently underway in Las Vegas.
""The root is signed. Does that mean Internet is safe?" Rob
Beckstom, CEO of ICANN, asked the Black Hat 2010 audience. "No," he
continued, "it means the Internet can now become safe."
