One of the world leaders in the field of domain names, Verisign, plans to patent the implementation of the DNS Security Extension (DNSSEC) protocol using blocking technology. The corresponding application was published by the Bureau of Registration of US Patents and Trademarks, CoinDesk reports.
The DNSSEC protocol is used to protect against the spoofing of information in the response and to prevent users from accidentally migrating to malicious sites when changing the DNS address.
At the same time, Verisign offers to store digital certificates, public keys and other means of authentication on the server, which will ensure the protection of users from hacker attacks and other malicious acts.
Several methods of using the DNSSEC protocol are assumed, but at the moment Verisign does not say about the further development of the system.
