Student L12A1

Instructions: Answer the following questions individually or in small groups. Be prepared to discuss your answers with the rest of the class.


  • As it has been discussed in the slides there are many threats that exist for a DNS server. Of those many threats list two of them.


  • As a normal user what threats or complications could you potentially face from an unsecure DNS server? Are there any? Why or why not?


  • For the two threats you listed earlier, describe what you could do as an administrator of a DNS server to help mitigate these threats. What would it cost you to implement these changes?


For the above solutions are there features or services you are relinquishing in order to have a more secure system? Could this increase of security cause a problem for you down the road, if so or if not, why?
