today, the farsight security support team received the following inquiry:
> To whom it may concern,
> Please transfer this email to Dr. vixie, the Chairmann& CEO
> Dear Dr. vixie ,
> While doing IPv6 transition, we were noted that the Yeti DNS Project has globally launched 25 IPv6 root servers, in which 4 are in China. In addition, it announced that the Yeti DNS Project constructs global IPv6-based root name servers in order to demonstrate a new type of capability in root servers for IPv6 applications.
> We understood that the Yeti DNS Project was started in June 2015, which is as a Live IPv6-only Root DNS Server System Testbed. Now, we are confused and surprised that it serves as IPv6-based root name servers globally.
> We read your article:<A1><B1> Let Me Make Yeti-DNS Perfectly Clear<A1><B1> dated on March 30 2016 in CircleID. Please confirm if the announcement of IPv6-based root servers is valid, and if the<A1><B0>root name<A1><B1> is formally authorized by ICANN?
> Thanks for your validation.
because it concerned non-farsight business, it was assigned to me for
response. i answered it as follows:
> Noting that yeti-dns is not a Farsight activity, I am answering as an
> individual network scientist, and not as the CEO and Chairman of Farsight.
> Yeti-DNS is a non-production network testbed. Any announcement to the
> contrary is mistaken or false. Yeti-DNS should not be used outside of
> test labs. We run experiments on it constantly.
> If you have any other questions about Yeti-DNS, please address them to
> coordinators at yeti-dns.net. I will instruct the Farsight staff to
> ignore any future inquiries on this topic.
let me make, again, yeti-dns perfectly clear:
greetings from wu zhen, all.
