History of Naming on the Internet


Roy Arends, Head of Research, Nominet UK
Thursday 6th December 2012 – 7:30pm
Oxford e-Research Centre, 6 Keble Road, Oxford, OX1 3QG

This talk highlights the growth and shows the motivation to evolve and overcome early day ad-hoc naming schemes, all the way up to the modern domain name system. The data used (old network maps and host tables) predates the current internet, which evolved from the early ARPANET. The talk will also cover current developments and do some future gazing. There is a lot going on currently that will be included.
