Internet Systems Consortium (ISC) and Internet Identity (IID) are proud to present a joint webinar “DNS Firewalls with BIND: ISC RPZ and the Internet Identity Approach” 

Despite security being an essential part of the network administrator’s job and network administration being an essential part of the security professional’s job, the two rarely exchange information. When they do work together, the results are unparalleled.

In this one-hour webinar, we will talk about how DNS Firewalls, BIND and RPZ are bridging the gap between network administrators and security professionals to protect customers against real threats.


Who should attend? 

  • Network Admins and Technical Decision Makers
  • CISO/Security Leads 


What Will Attendees Learn?

  • The value of network and security professionals working together for mutual benefit. 
  • Why BIND, open source software that implements the DNS protocols for the Internet, matters, and how RPZ (Response Policy Zone) technology developed by ISC, provides recursive resolver operators with a simple way to block potentially harmful queries. 
  • How IID’s ActiveTrust Resolver monitors and filters outbound DNS requests emanating from your internal networks, redirecting traffic for known bad locations to its TrapTrace server—tracing these communications back to the originating system.



  • Paul Vixie – Chairman and Founder, Internet Systems Consortium
  • Rod Rasmussen – President and CTO, Internet Identity
