DNS Security

Often referred to as the “phonebook of the Internet,” the Domain Name System (DNS) is a key network function that translates domain names (e.g., “atis.org”) to the device’s unique numerical IP addresses so that web browsers and other applications can load Internet resources. Because DNS is such a critical network function, its robustness and security are of profound importance. Important changes to the security of DNS protocols are now underway. These will have an impact on all organizations that offer DNS services or depend on features implemented in DNS. Almost all Internet applications rely on DNS to allow the client ...
