Nominum Chairman and Chief Scientist, Dr. Paul Mockapetris Inducted into the Internet Hall of Fame

Dr. Paul Mockapetris – Internet Hall of Fame Inductee Paul Mockapetris, Nominum's Chairman and Chief Scientist, was inducted as part of the inaugural class of the Internet Hall of Fame on Monday at the Internet Society's Global INET 2012 conference.

Paul Mockapetris was recognized for expanding the Internet beyond its academic origins by inventing the Domain Name System (DNS) in 1983. At USC’s Information Sciences Institute, Mockapetris recognized the problems with the early Internet (then ARPAnet)’s system of holding name to address translations in a single table on a single host (HOSTS.TXT). Instead, he proposed a distributed and dynamic naming system, essentially the DNS of today.

In a video recording for the occasion, Mockapetris said: "I am hoping to see in the future three, four, or more people that have built advanced security or other features on top of this infrastructure. That would be my dream."
