DNSSEC (DNS Security Extensions) is a suite of Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) specifications designed to secure certain kinds of DNS information and to protect the Internet from attacks, such as DNS cache poisoning. DNSSEC partners with Thales Luna Network Hardware Security Module (HSM) to provide a secure key management solution.
DNSSEC, a suite of IETF specifications, is designed to secure certain kinds of DNS information. It’s essential that private DNSSEC keys are kept secure. If the private key were to be compromised, a rogue DNS server could gain access. To prevent such a compromise, Thales Luna Luna Network hardware security module (HSM) protects the generation and storing of private keys. In addition Thales Luna HSM supports key rollover functions since DNSSEC keys don’t have permanent longevity.
