It's Past Time to Restructure the Internet for Better Security
Recent mass Internet attacks have highlighted how easy it is to take down large parts of the commercial Internet by targeting Domain Name Servers (DNS). They have also exposed a fundamental security flaw of the Internet: a packet-based architecture that is more than 30 years old and that makes it way too easy for adversaries to map and attack foundational services like DNS, as well as specific websites and cloud services. With so many businesses and other organizations relying on the Internet for their essential functions, it's past time we beefed up our Internet security by graduating to a flow-based networking architecture.
In this presentation, RingCentral's Senior Vice President of Cloud Operations shares his thoughts on why today's aged Internet security is no match for modern security demands, and how we can fix it.
