Podcast Episode #3: Something Technical With Sean (DNSSEC)

Length: 9:44

This week our CTO, Sean Leach, joins the podcast to talk about a little thing called DNSSEC. The most basic explanation of DNSSEC is that it provides security for your DNS, but, as you will hear, there is oh so much more involved.

Non-tech folks, not to worry, Sean does a really good job of keeping the technobabble to a minimum. Even as I was politely smiling and nodding during recording, I was actually comprehending (most) of what was being said. 🙂

Speaking of DNS security, the .ORG registry is now running a campaign to practice safe DNS, and they’ve taken a clever angle with it. Check out the PSA-like video below:

It's about time they're focusing on DNS security. I for one, welcome this!

I think it is wonderful most don't know DNS takes the IP 621.XX.XXX ( X = numbers) address turning it in to http://www.example.com
I like OpenDNS its free & a help. I think googles DNS is not as good.

I am still waiting for you to enable DNSSEC for .com zone.

Why have you not implemented it even though .com is the most used TLD?

I inquired about this last year and it was supposed to be implemented in the first quarter of 2012.Right now we are approaching the last quarter of 2012.

I completely agree: I was told YEARS ago this was coming for other TLDs (I’m using it on the one .us domain I have). Seriously, what is the holdup? If there is one thing that could drive me to GoDaddy, this is it.
