DNA was the first operator in Finland to introduce the Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC) feature, which significantly increases data security for customers. This feature ensures that, instead of a fraudulent copy of a website, the users of online services are directed to the genuine website of the service they want to use.

In DNA’s network, DNSSEC is used on all Domain Name System servers for public name resolution.

The number of fraudulent sites and internet frauds is increasing, and DNSSEC will immediately bring benefits to everyone who uses login, authentication and payment services or other services that are critical in terms of data security. Surfing the internet is safe when the registrar of the domain name is also using the DNSSEC feature on its server.

In DNA’s network, DNSSEC is used on all Domain Name System servers for public name resolution. In a network, DNS servers are responsible for tasks such as routing emails in the network and directing users to the services they want to use. The DNSSEC technology ensures that the computer sending the query (for example, a web browser) can see whether the response received for the internet address through the domain name system is from a server that has been registered as a trusted server.

“Data security and the usability of services are of paramount importance to us, and DNSSEC ensures that Internet users access the websites that they intend to access. With DNSSEC, network users can be better protected against increasingly more frequent and serious attacks targeting DNS server systems,” says Mikko Kannisto, Director of DNA’s Transmission Networks.
