EE: State's Internet domains receive a security extension

Published on: 16/05/2014

DNSSEC protects Internet users and domain owners by giving a guarantee that the user has not been unwittingly redirected to another page from the page they were trying to reach. While the web pages of Estonia's state authorities have not experienced large-scale DNS problems to date, implementing DNSSEC will help to avoid them further in the future.

A video has been made to explain DNSSEC technology and its importance to domain owners. Owners of webshops and other web pages that handle sensitive data and/or money, in particular, should consider implementing DNSSEC. The video is available in English, Russian and Estonian.

Implementation of the DNSSEC security extension is coordinated by the Estonian Internet Foundation, which has created the necessary regulations and infrastructure. The DNSSEC security extension service is intermediated to domain registrants by the registrars, i.e. domain registration service providers. Further information on how to implement the DNSSEC service for your own domain can be found on the Foundation's home page.
