DNSSEC (Domain Name System Security Extensions) implements digital signatures in DNS data (Domain Name System), which are vulnerable to attack; thus, our security measures make the Internet a safer place for everyone to navigate.

 

 

What is it and how does it work?

DNS are vulnerable to a range of threats and attacks, such as man-in-the-middle and cache poisoning. These threats use false information to redirect users to misleading sites and web addresses. 

 

The DNSSEC records introduce digital signatures in the data DNS, verify the source and confirm their authenticity, as they move within the internet. This means that when a user enters an address with DNSSEC enabled, the response received, meaning the site where it is redirected, has its authority verified for authenticity. 

 

DNSSEC - How it works

 

How do I activate the DNSSEC?

Currently Papaki supports DS records for .GR and .EU domain names. You can add the records for free through the Control Panel. Sign in to your control panel, go to the domain you want and click on the nameservers icon. You will find the related link to the DS records on the right. See detailed instructions on the FAQs page Papaki.
