In its session on 18 December 2013, the Czech government adopted a resolution requiring public administration authorities to secure all of their domains with DNSSEC technology by 30 June 2015.

This requirement will also apply to all websites financed by structural funds in the new 2014+ program period. The websites will likewise be required to support IPv6, which means that IPv6 support will also be expanded to selected websites in the private sector.

The Czech Republic is probably the first country in the world to require mandatory DNSSEC protection for all public administration sites, a measure designed to strengthen the trust of users in the offered information.
