Abstract: Domain name system (DNS) plays an important role in today’s Internet surfing by offering a hierarchical domain name resolve scheme. It performs the translation between domain name and real IP address. DNS cache poisoning attack change or insert records in the resolver caches so that a DNS query will return a fake IP address of the attacker’s domain instead of the real IP address. By that way, DNS cache poisoning attacks make damages such as identity theft to cause large losses in the network transition.To protect DNS from cache poisoning attacks, a lot of defend schemes have been released. Those schemes increase the security by variable methods, like making domain name case-sensitive, randomizing port, processing transaction ID, encrypt DNS query, extending DNS system, and adding proxy. In those schemes, Security Proxy offers good security and performance comparing to others while still get weakness that security and efficiency cannot exist at the same time therefore should be further improved.
