Abstract : This effort will explore radical changes in the way Domain Name System (DNS) is used by endpoints in a network to improve the resilience of the endpoint and its applications in the face of dynamically changing infrastructure topology. This project will exploit the opportunity to remove the intrinsic dependence of a single, fixed root context for the DNS and develop a scalable architecture and localized optimization algorithms for constructing a dynamic, topologically sensitive root context for any network topology.
