There are many websites and tutorials available to learn more about the importance of DNSSEC. We have captured some of that information here to provide you with a starting point to your DNSSEC Education with Technical Information and Tutorials & Research.
Should you have any questions on the information provided or require further assistance, please contact us at DNSSEC@COinternet.co.
DNSSEC is a set of DNS extensions which provide 3 basic functions:
- Data Origin Authentication - assures that data is received from the authorized DNS server; can protect from impersonation attacks
- Data Integrity - assures that data received matches data on the origin DNS server, and is not modified during transit; protects from man-in-the-middle type pollution attacks.
- Authenticated Denial of Existence - assures that a "Non-existent" response is valid.
The following "Request for Comments" (RFCs) defines the technical core of DNSSEC specifications.
RFC 4033: DNS Security Introduction and Requirements
RFC 4034: Resource Records for the DNS Security Extensions
RFC 4035: Protocol Modifications for the DNS Security Extensions
RFC 4641: DNSSEC Operational Practices
RFC 5155: Introduces an alternative resource record, NSEC3, which provides additional measures against zone enumeration and permits gradual expansion of delegation-centric zones.
