For Immediate Release:
Secure64® DNS Signer Selected to Secure Country Top Level Domain
Asian ccTLD streamlines operations with automated DNSSEC solution from Secure64
Greenwood Village, CO – March 6, 2018 – Secure64, the leading provider of Genuinely Secure DNS servers, today announced that a country-code top-level domain (ccTLD) in Asia has upgraded their infrastructure by adding Secure64® DNS Signer®, a secure, highly automated DNSSEC signing solution.
DNS Security Extension (DNSSEC) was created to add critically-needed trust to the DNS. DNSSEC adds cryptographic digital signatures to DNS responses which can be validated by the recipient to the ensure that the response came from an authorized and authentic source and has not been altered in transit. DNSSEC prevents domain hijacking and “pharming” attacks, which attackers use to redirect victims to fake web sites in order to steal credentials, financial or confidential information. By deploying DNSSEC at a country’s top-level domain, organizations registered under that domain benefit from a “chain of trust” that begins at the DNS root, allowing DNS resolvers to fully validate the authenticity of the full DNS resolution.
“As the only fully automated DNSSEC solution that is secure without using expensive add-ons, Secure64 can assist ccTLDs in achieving a much higher level of security,” said Thad Dupper, CEO of Secure64. “This Asian registry will now benefit from not only enhanced security but also automating processes that were previously done manually, which opened the door to dangerous errors. We were very grateful to work with our APAC partner C-COR who will provide in-country support and project management assistance for this high- profile deployment.”
When this registry switched operators, the new provider decided to evaluate options for signing its zone data. Secure64 DNS Signer greatly simplifies the signing of domains and does so efficiently and securely. The solution is also highly scalable and capable of handling extremely large, dynamic environments.
