VeriSign Launches Cloud Security Service

VeriSign Inc. has just launched its newest cloud computing service designed to ease the implementation of Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC). Bizjournals states that the DNSSEC provides an additional layer of security to all users of the internet by protecting against cache websites and "man-in-the-middle" attacks. These attacks occur when forged data is used to redirect users to fraudulent websites and unintended addresses.

The VeriSign DNSSEC Signing Service will allow companies to incorporate signing and provisioning into their databases while reducing costs, according to Bizjournals. This service is designed specifically for registrars who provide DNS hosting and management services for their registrants without the additional complexity of signing and managing the keys associated with DNSSEC.
