TOPIC           Infrastructure Threats: Internet Naming, Addressing,
                and Routing Systems
DESCRIPTION     This presentation will focus primarily on Internet
                infrastructure vulnerabilities, specifically related

                -- Reliance on an IP substrate
                -- Internet routing system security
                -- DNS and naming system components

                The Internet's naming, addressing, and routing systems are
                for the most part transparent to consumers on the Internet
                today -- until something breaks, or it's employed for
                malice.  This talk will explore many of the vulnerabilities
                with the Internet routing, DNS and addressing system, and
                what's being done to counter these threats.
