DNSSEC Protection

If DNS is the phone book of the Internet, DNSSEC is the Internet’s unspoofable caller ID. It guarantees a web application’s traffic is safely routed to the correct servers so that a site’s visitors are not intercepted by a hidden on-path attacker. These attacks usually go unnoticed by sites’ visitors, increasing the risk of phishing, malware infections, and personal data leakage. Learn about Universal DNSSEC
