Domain Name System Operations | DNSOP
DNSOP discusses current DNS-related issues in technology and operations, providing guidelines on how DNS software can be efficiently and correctly administered, configured, and operated in the context of internet networks. It also publishes documents related to the implementation of DNS Security Extensions (DNSSEC) and operationalisation of IPv4 and IPv6 networks. Promoting authentication and verification mechanisms within DNS operations can enhance the security of the DNS, which is vulnerable to attacks that hijack and take control of any step of the DNS lookup process. Such attacks can, for example, direct users to a malicious website for username and password collection and extract an individual’s sensitive information.
