This will be held at the same location the subsequent RIPE70 meeting,

The theme for this workshop is DDoS attack report and mitigation
techniques, and we have a range of talks on this topic, including on
attack experiences and side-effects, and countermeasures against
random subdomain attacks.

We also have various DNSSEC talks, looking at the effects of increasing
the root Zone KSK size, on-the-fly signing, and use of ECDSA crypto in
practice, as well as several new DNS tool presentations.

A big thank you to our speakers and programme committee for putting
