DENVER – August 7, 2012 – Secure64 Software Corporation has completed a technical analysis of the world’s largest banking and financial institutions that reveals an industry-wide lack of progress in implementing security protocols that protect against fundamental vulnerabilities in the infrastructure that powers the Internet. The study of nearly 300 financial institutions in the United States and around the world determined that none of these organizations have implemented Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC), which have been endorsed as a critical element to secure cyberspace by a long list of organizations around the world including the FCC, the White House, the Department of Homeland Security, ICANN and many others.
- None of the organizations analyzed has fully deployed DNSSEC.
- Only one organization in the study has signed its DNS data—a necessary first step in the process of deploying DNSSEC.
- None of the organizations analyzed has established a chain of trust to their parent domain—another necessary step in the DNSSEC implementations process.
- None of the commercial banks in the United States has taken either step towards DNSSEC deployment
