An Illustrated Guide to the Kaminsky DNS Vulnerability

Some time ago i mentioned already the Kaminsky DNS Vulnerability, e.g. in my post DNS Exploit Means Quick Patches Are Critical: patch immediately!

Today I found an interesting contribution about the issue on DSLR, it concern a paper that describe this vulnerability in great detail.

The author of the paper, Steve Friedl, describe the paper in this way: “designed for the computer-savvy person who nevertheless may not really know how DNS works: lots of diagrams to make the point and guide an understanding”.

Thanks Steve for your great piece of hard work!

Take a look at the paper here.
