An APTLD76 Fellow’s Testimonial by Berjan Bayat< back to list
This was my first time to participating event that organized in Asia
As a first-time attendee and fellow, I have less experience of Asia
Pacific Events. APTLD provided me some useful guide to the trip from Mongolia
to Malaysia with relevant information and instructions.
However, The first day of DNSSEC Training I have missed earlier part,
because of airplane landed later than scheduled time. Therefore, I was unable
to get a bus to Malaysia directly from the Changi Airport in Singapore at
The next day of the session was topic under “Blockchain Technology by
Virgil Griffith Ethereum Name Service”, which was a very exciting topic for me,
and other participants.
ENS appeared to be complicated for some people, because it is
completely different from our known TLD
DNS even if the secure and decentralized. For example, Internet governance and
operation of technical terms. For me the first time from this kind of event, I
mostly see the quality of the people that joined the conference and came to
learn, as well as to share from their knowledge and experience, while also
asking excellent questions and challenging ones. It was delightful to see such
a well organized program, and even more to hear all the main specialists of
Domain Name Industries around the world
together in this event.
The second day we were also given a presentation on For abuse DNS abuse
related Rule-based Detection to Botnet, IoT-based DDoS attacks, .tw Marketing
Campaigns promotional videos are really impressed me. I have prepared to
present speech about “Building Highly Available Domain Name System in Cloud” at
the technical session of the event. Hope the information were helpful.
In another session, Mr. Ilya Rozhnov from “Group IB” delivered many
types of phishing examples with protection of brand. Our organization is a
domain name registry, but we provide a domain name based business email
service. Almost every week, new kind of phishing mail spreads. What he talks
about is one of the big problems we face often.
In the following evening, everyone got invited to a dinner hosted by
MyNIC. The event was organized much better than everyone’s expectations.
One of the things I have enjoyed moment at the APTLD76’s Iskandar
Puteri is the vast array of cultural experience. Last day MyNIC invited us to
view traditional culture, arts and crafts of Malaysia and the State of Johor.
We were able to paint a national style watercolor painting and created
a candle of souvenir. Making Malaysian home-made tea, pancakes, also enjoyed
watching National Musical Concert. We enjoyed so much of these activities and
it was totally new and fun.
To conclude, I would like to say thank you for inviting me such great
Event to APTLD team. Their accomplishment during event, also good assistance
supported me in professional way.
