Click through for results from a Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC) survey conducted by IID, in coordination with Online Trust Alliance.

IID (Internet Identity), a provider of technology and services that help organizations secure their Internet presence, recently announced results from a survey of corporate IT security experts on the impact and future of domain name system security extensions (DNSSEC). The survey, conducted in coordination with the Online Trust Alliance, found that half of the respondents either hadn’t heard of DNSSEC or expressed limited familiarity with it. Those who do understand the technology believe key obstacles including lack of training/implementation services, slow ISP resolver rollout and limited client-aware applications will lead to a two to five-year adoption period.

DNSSEC is an emerging Internet security standard. It is designed to protect Internet users from getting misdirected to unintended Internet destinations by ensuring domain name system (DNS) entries remain unchanged in transit. The Internet’s root servers at the top of the DNS hierarchy added DNSSEC support last July. More than 25 top-level domains — including .gov, .org, .edu and .net — have enabled DNSSEC since then. On March 31, DNSSEC will be enabled on the .com top-level domain, which has more than 80 million registered names according to VeriSign, the operator of .com.

This slideshow highlights some of the findings of the IID survey.
