Payload Length Increase during Transition to IPv 6
あらまし DNSのサーバとリゾルバ間で交換される情報の量や内容は,IPv6 の導入に伴うアドレス長の増加 やその他の技術的拡張によって変わりつつある.この変化によって DNS の使用するトランスポート層プロトコ ルとそのペイロード長に関して根本的な設計変更が必要となっている.本論文では,まず IPv6 の技術的要請に 伴い
An Approach to A Scalable Wide-Area Web Service
Management Guidelines & Operational Requirements for the Address and Routing Parameter Area Domain ("arpa")
This memo describes the management and operational requirements for the address and routing parameter area ("arpa") domain. The "arpa" domain is used to support a class of infrastructural identifier

The SunSCALR framework is described, which uses a distributed, self-stabilizing algorithm for status monitoring and failure detection, and IP failover for automatic reconfiguration and allows on-the-fly addition and removal of hosts.
K-resolver: Towards Decentralizing Encrypted DNS Resolution
K-resolver is proposed, a DNS resolution mechanism that disperses DNS queries across multiple DoH resolvers, reducing the amount of information about a user's browsing activity exposed to each individual resolver.
Data Location Management Protocol for Object Stores in a Fog Computing Infrastructure
This paper proposes to use a tree-based approach to locate data, inspired by the domain name system (DNS) protocol, and shows that the time to locate an object in the approach is less than 15 ms on average which is around 20% shorter than using a traditional distributed Hash Table (DHT).
A novel distributed registry approach for efficient and resilient service discovery in megascale distributed systems?
In this paper first requirements for service discovery in megascale systems are identified from three perspectives: provider, client and system architecture side and a novel solution architecture is presented based on the idea that service description data can be subdivided into static and dynamic properties.
Dmap: Automating Domain Name Ecosystem Measurements and Applications
Dmap is presented, an active measurement application that reduces the complexity of executing both measurements and analysis by automating the crawling of several application protocols and storing the results into a relational data base, enabling researchers to quickly perform hypothesis tests within interactive response times using SQL.
Scalable Computing in a Blockchain
This paper outlines several strategies to improve the scope and scale of processes that can be executed in a blockchain.

Domain names - implementation and specification
This RFC is the revised specification of the protocol and format used in the implementation of the Domain Name System. It obsoletes RFC-883. This memo documents the details of the domain name client
Computer mail meeting notes
  • J. Postel
  • Mathematics, Computer Science
  • 1982
This RFC consists of notes from a meeting that was held at USC Information Sciences Institute on 11 January 1982, to discuss addressing issues in computer mail, to extend the "username@hostname" mailbox format to " username@host.domain", where the domain itself can be further strutured.
Distributed system for Internet name service
This RFC proposes a distributed name service for DARPA Internet. Its purpose is to focus discussion on the subject. It is hoped that a general consensus will emerge leading eventually to the adoption
DoD Internet host table specification
A "name" (Net, Host, Gateway, or Domain name) is a text string up to 24 characters drawn from the alphabet, digits, and the minus sign (-) and period, no distinction is made between upper and lower case.

The Domain Naming Convention for Internet User Applications
This RFC is an attempt to clarify the generalization of the Domain Naming Convention, the Internet Naming Convention, and to explore the implications of its adoption for Internet name service and
