The landscape around DNS Privacy has changed dramatically in the last few years, with tremendous developments in multiple areas. These include
However numerous challenges remain, including:
This workshop will allow participants to contribute to the accelerating progress of DNS privacy technologies and deployment throughout the Internet. We aim to bring together a quorum to discuss these technologies, both established and emerging. One special focus will be the contributions that DNS privacy makes in civil society applications, in conjunction with related and newer technology such as Encrypted Client Hello.
We welcome submissions in the form of research papers, short papers, or draft presentations concerning all aspects of the threats, the protocols, and future design spaces of DNS privacy or the privacy of adjacent protocols. Usability, traceability, measurement and analytical evaluations are particularly encouraged. Research papers may also cover the equivalent privacy topics concerning domain name metadata of other infrastructure protocols such as WebPKI, DHCP, DIAMETER, etc. where the authors are willing to discuss the interrelation of these other protocols with DNS in the infrastructure. Submissions should address impacts and effectiveness of DNS Privacy in the context of usable privacy and/or civil society.
Submissions will not be anonymous.
Types of submission:
We expect to be flexible on length and format given relevant submissions.
We will publish proceedings online as in the past. All material will be linked there a few days ahead of the workshop.
