DNS Security Extensions, or DNSSEC, are largely considered the best mitigation for warding off cache poisoning attacks, the most common attack on the Domain Name System. These attacks are particularly dangerous because users are generally redirected to malicious websites despite requesting a legitimate IP address. DNSSEC deployments, however, are complicated and rife with potential hurdles.
In this SearchSecurity.com podcast, expert Char Sample sheds light on the top five potential pitfalls in DNSSEC deployments and explains how to best prepare for and avoid them. She also relays information on the current state of DNSSEC deployments and gives her thoughts on the future of DNSSEC. Ensure the success of your DNSSEC deployment with this valuable podcast.
