Domain Name System Security Extension (DNSSEC)

Authenticating the Internet from end-to-end

Protection for Everyone Who Uses the Internet

DNSSEC is most effective when universally implemented—starting at the root zone and top-level domains (TLDs) and moving down to individual domain names. Registries, registrars, registrants, hosting companies, software developers, hardware vendors, government, businesses and agencies with an internet presence and internet technologists and coalitions all have responsibility for the success of this massive effort.

Domain Name System Security Extension (DNSSEC) presents new opportunities and new challenges for registrars. Verisign is committed to working with our registrar affiliates to make DNSSEC as simple and valuable as possible.

  • Help protect registrants’ brand and customers
  • Maintain registrants’ trust and loyalty
  • Attract and retain security- and reputation-focused registrants
  • Create new service offerings, such as zone signing for registrants
  • Open the door to using the DNS for new types of secure data transactions (e.g. publishing other types of public keys and authenticating e-mail origin)
  • Protect your core business by enhancing trust in the Internet
  • Exert leadership and influence to shape the future of DNSSEC
