In case you haven't seen a message from me before, I'm Sebastian Castro,
Technical Research Manager for NZRS, part of the InternetNZ team.
Our Research Team has been conducting some research work on passive DNS
analysis in order to identify real DNS resolvers in the wild, as
authoritative DNS servers like the .nz nameservers get a lot of rubbish
In order to advance the work, we are looking for some ground truth about
real DNS resolvers in NZ. We have a list of known resolvers from
organizatons like Spark, Vodafone, some ISPs, but we are looking to
extend and refresh that list.
If you operate a network that has a resolver, would you be so kind to
share with us the IP addresses (both v4 and v6 if available) the
resolver uses to send traffic? Depending on your architecture, it could
be the address your users setup in their configuration, or a different
address based on location where there is a load balancing architecture.
There is no restriction: we want big and small resolvers, ISPs, Wireless
ISPS, educational organizations, big and small companies, everything helps.
The list won't be made public, it will be used for our research purposes.
Thanks in advance and enjoy your Waitangi weekend.
