In July 2008, Kaminsky discovered a fundamental flaw in the Domain Name System (DNS) protocol. He wrote an op-ed for Cyber ScoopNews the day it debuted, where he called for a better way to guard the internet.
He did DNS and the Internet a solid. He cared, and IMO security did up-level as a result.
Dan Kaminsky is an internationally respected technologist who has spent almost two decades protecting the Internet.
He is one of the seven “key shareholders” able to restore the Internet’s Domain Name System if necessary. Dan is known for his work in finding a core flaw on the Internet and then leading the charge to repair it.
He was popularly known for discovering the 2008 DNS cache poisoning vulnerability. Dan worked with DNS vendors in secret to develop a patch to make exploiting the vulnerability more difficult, releasing it on July 8, 2008.
In 2002 he graduated from Clara Santa University with a Bachelor’s degree, Operations and Management of information services.
He founded the Recursion Ventures in March 2010.
