Securing Multicast DNS Study Into the Feasibility of Trusted Multicast DNS for Service Discovery

Free registration required

Executive Summary

This paper looks at how developers can use open and freely available technology to provide a level of identity security and trust to service discovery in an untrusted ad-hoc network environment. Initial research shows that using multicast Domain Name Services (DNS) when coupled with X.509 machine-issued certificates gives an adequate level of identification when new computers wish to find and use services across a network. Further research is necessary to generalize the problem and to explore caveats.
