DNSSEC (Domain Name System Security Extensions) improves the trust and integrity of DNS, the backbone of the Internet. By deploying DNSSEC, you protect the integrity and reputation of your site, and ensure your visitors connect to your web servers, without their traffic being man-in-the-middled.

Join DNS web security experts Dani Grant, Product Manager at Cloudflare, and Matt Bromiley, SANS GIAC Advisory Board member, as they examine the security and latency challenges when deploying DNSSEC at scale for any infrastructure. During this one hour webcast, discover how Cloudflare is able to support DNSSEC at its scale with special consideration to key management, new DNSSEC algorithm types and signing on the fly.

In this webcast you will learn:

  • Various methods of mitigation to tighten DNS server security
  • The problems with negative answers
  • New registrar and registry support you can implement
  • How to best execute DNSSEC at scale
