Labor Employs Secure64 DNS Signer Department-Wide to Meet OMB Mandate


"DENVER, Oct. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Secure64 Software Corporation announced today that the U.S. Department of Labor has purchased the company's Secure64 DNS Signer product to meet the OMB DNSSEC implementation mandate and increase security of its Internet infrastructure, including DNS services. The Domain Name System (DNS) is responsible for translating host names to IP addresses (and vice versa) and is critical for the correct operation of any Internet enabled device. The six figure contract was purchased on the SEWP government contract through Secure64 partner Alvarez & Associates, a leading IT systems integrator for the federal government.

Secure64 DNS Signer is a software product that fully automates Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC) key generation, key rollover, zone signing and re-signing processes. It reduces deployment and administration costs while eliminating errors that can cause domains to become unavailable. The software also scales to extremely large, dynamic environments by safely keeping DNSSEC signing keys online while providing incremental zone signing and extremely high signing performance.

DNSSEC adds a critically needed level of trust to the Internet by allowing users to know with certainty that their Internet-based communications such as web site visits, email correspondence and even SSL and VPN sessions actually connect to the parties they intend to reach. DNSSEC thwarts attacks such as pharming, cache poisoning and DNS redirection that have been used to commit fraud, distribute malware, or steal personal or confidential information. Due to its importance, the United States Office of Management and Budget issued an OMB mandate that all federal agencies must implement DNSSEC by December 2009.
