Security Improved for .org URLs

Kara Reeder

Computerworld reports that .org has become the first generic top-level domain to provide its customers improved security using DNSSEC (Domain Name System Security Extensions).


Alexa Raad, CEO at .org, says the implementation of DNSSEC will help protect users against man-in-the middle attacks. The article explains:

For users, this means they can be sure that the site they are visiting is actually run by, for example, their bank, and not a hacker, as long as they go to the correct URL.

So far, 13 of .org's registrars can handle DNSSEC.

There are still very few domain name providers offering DNSSEC and very few domain administrators have implemented it. Because both client-side and server-side technology is needed for it to be affective, there is still some time needed for this feature to catch on. Reply
