DNSSEC: The way to protect your Network

In today’s digital landscape, ensuring the security and integrity of data transmitted over the internet is paramount. One of the critical components of internet infrastructure is the Domain Name System (DNS), which translates human-readable domain names into IP addresses. However, the DNS system was not originally designed with security in mind, making it vulnerable to various attacks. To address these vulnerabilities, DNS Security Extensions (DNSSEC) were introduced. This blog post delves into the intricacies of DNSSEC, explaining what it is, how it works, and why it is essential for protecting your network.
