KPN validates DNSSEC for fixed, mobile customers

Wednesday 18 March 2020 | 09:59 CET | News
KPN started validating DNSSEC since the start of the month for its fixed and mobile customers, Dutch domain name registrar SIDN reported. DNSSEC is a protocol to verify the identity of websites and to prevent identity theft. The protocol was set up to combat internet fraud, where people are lured to a counterfeit website. People who think they are logging on to a bank site may reveal personal information, for example. Stolen passwords can then be used for fraud.
