Abstract:

This final report summarizes the objectives for the EARR project FA8750-17-2-0096 and the technical progress made against those objectives. The research objective of the EARR project was to 1 improve our understanding of anycast and its role in defending DNS Domain Name System servers against Distributed-Denial-of-Service DDoS attacks, 2 improve anycast and instrumentation at B-Root, and 3 improve understanding of DNS leakage and privacy. EARR accomplished those objectives, producing research reports that document the role of anycast in DDoS defense, deploying anycast at B-Root for the first time with deployment to a third site underway at end-of-contract, and supporting analysis of DNS datasets from JAS Advisors for DNS leakage and privacy, and distributing those datasets through the DHS IMPACT program.
