DNSSEC Now Available

IT Itch now offers customers the ability to protect their DNS data by adding digital signatures. DNS Security Extensions (DNSSEC) protect applications from using forged or manipulated DNS data by digitally signing data to validate it’s origin, ensuring that the end user is connecting to the actual address for a domain name. DNSSEC protects from some cyber crimes like man-in-the-middle and cache poisoning attacks and leads to increased trust for internet activities.

DNSSEC – What You Need To Know

What is DNSSEC?

DNSSEC (short for Domain Name System Security Extensions) applies digital signatures to DNS data to authenticate the data’s origin and verify its integrity as it moves across the Internet. DNSSEC is designed to protect from “man in the middle” and cache poisoning attacks, whereby hackers corrupt DNS data stored on recursive servers to redirect queries to fraudulent sites and unintended addresses. With DNSSEC, poisoning a recursive server’s cache is much more difficult because DNS administrators sign their data. The resulting digital signatures on that DNS data are validated through a “chain of trust” that starts with the public key published today for the root zone.
