DNSSEC

What is DNSSEC?

Domain Name System Security Extensions or DNSSEC, is an important security protocol that sits on top of the existing domain name system and provides a critical level of assurance that traffic comes from where it says it does. DNSSEC protects against forged DNS answers. DNSSEC protected zones are cryptographically signed to ensure the DNS records received are identical to the DNS records published by the domain owner. DNSSEC makes it much harder for hackers to perform man-in-the-middle attacks.

Enabling DNSEC

The steps required to enable DNSSEC depend upon a domain names Registrar and the nameservers or DNS service provider it is using. Begin by determining who your domain names Registrar is, the nameservers or DNS provider and DNSSEC status. To find this information perform a WHOIS lookup here:

https://www.alpineweb.com/domain-names/whois/

Look for the following fields (output from WHOIS servers may vary - these are intended as examples):

Registrar: eNom, LLC - 1 API GmbH
Name Server: lara.ns.cloudflare.com, will.ns.cloudflare.com
DNSSEC: unsigned or signedDelegation
