Infoblox Delivers the Industry's Most Automated DNSSEC Solution

Fully Automated Key Management and Rollover Eliminates Barriers to DNSSEC Adoption

Infoblox Inc. today announced availability of additional functionality to help organizations simplify deployment of the Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC), a suite of IETF specifications for securing information provided by DNS.

Infoblox addresses this with its "one-click DNSSEC" solution that replaces manual key generation and zone signing with a one-click process that generates and securely distributes encryption keys to all appliances in the Infoblox grid that serve DNSSEC data. Infoblox also automates the critical process of periodically changing keys, also known as "key rollover," which is essential to ensuring that secure DNS data cannot be compromised. Keys are rolled over automatically according to best practices recommended by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST-800-81) and RFC 4641 standards. DNSSEC records are signed and re-signed automatically each time DNS data are changed. This eliminates dozens of error-prone, manual operations and eliminates the need to write and maintain custom scripts.

Further, configuring a secondary and/or recursive name server for DNSSEC can also be accomplished with a single click. The solution also automates important administrative functions including easy importing of trust anchors.

Infoblox Vice President of Architecture and DNS expert, Cricket Liu, commented: "Addressing the most threatening DNS security concerns requires a globally coordinated effort to deploy DNSSEC. The functionality Infoblox provides in its purpose-built, highly automated solutions helps organizations overcome deployment challenges by eliminating the complex tasks required to support DNSSEC with conventional solutions."

The most comprehensive DNSSEC functionality is now available in Infoblox NIOS software version 5.0r1, the only core network services solution on the market with a single Web-based graphical user interface (GUI) that provides management of all aspects of the domain name system (DNS), IP address assignment (DHCP) and IP address management (IPAM) infrastructure and data.

  1. Great information! DNS security is must for authentication, data integrity and denial of existence. I am also associated with Domain Names, Web Hosting and Online Marketing Services. This information will be awfully supportive to me.
