DNS, DoS, Cache Poisoning, DNSSEC, DNS Hijacking.
Nowadays DNS is used to load balance, failover, and geographically redirect connections. DNS has become so pervasive it is hard to identify a modern TCP/IP connection that does not use DNS in some way. Unfortunately, due to the reliability built into the fundamental RFC-based design of DNS, most IT professionals don't spend much time worrying about it. If DNS is maliciously attacked — altering the addresses it gives out or taken offline the damage will be enormous. Whether conducted for political motives, financial gain, or just the notoriety of the attacker, the damage from a DNS attack can be devastating for the target.

In this research we will review different DNS advanced attacks and analyze them. We will survey some of the most DNS vulnerabilities and ways of DNS attacks protection.
