Who is afraid of DNS? Nominet's new 'turing' tool visualises hidden security threats

John E Dunn | June 16, 2015
UK domain registry Nominet has shown off a striking new visualisation tool called 'turing' that large organisations can use to peer into their DNS traffic to trace latency issues and spot previously invisible botnets and malware.

A large ISP was already using turing, he said.

"What this does is provide another tool to keep the Internet safe. It is an increasingly challenging thing to do. We need cutting edge tools to combat threats."

Pricing depends in the design of a customer's network, the volume of DNS traffic they handle and the terms of the license agreement, possibly a coded way of saying that large organisations will end up paying more than smaller ones. More information can be obtained by emailing turing@nominet.org.uk
