DNSSEC

DNSSEC (short for DNS Security Extensions) adds security to the Domain Name System.

DNSSEC was designed to protect the Internet from certain attacks, such as DNS cache poisoning.

It is a set of extensions to DNS, which provide:

  • origin authentication of DNS data
  • data integrity
  • authenticated denial of existence

DNSSEC does not provide availability or confidentiality.
