ISOC and AFRINIC are organising a Hackathon to bring together engineers who are interested in learning about the IETF and how IETF standards can be applied to code. The hackathon looks to encourage developers to discuss, collaborate and develop utilities, ideas, sample code and solutions that show practical implementations of IETF standards.
When: Saturday May 27th and Sunday May 28th, 2017
Where: Boma Inn Hotel, Nairobi, Kenya
Room: KIFARU Room (Upstairs in the conference room)
Contact person Kevin Chege (email@example.com)
The Hackathon is free to attend to successful applicants
Topic Lead: Joe Abley
The Domain Name System (DNS) is one of the key infrastructures of the Internet allowing humans to remember names rather than numbers (IP addresses) when looking for devices/content on the Internet. A proposed topic aims to work on how DNS traffic is captured and stored. In particular, we will explore CBOR, a standard, binary format for structured data, and the proposal to use CBOR to store DNS (request, response) pairs, C-DNS, draft-ietf-dnsop-dns-capture-format-02.
