    The Register: Will DNSSEC kill your internet?

    Internet users face the risk of losing their internet connections on 5 May when the domain name system switches over to a new, more secure protocol. While the vast majority of users are expected to endure the transition to DNSSEC smoothly, users behind badly designed or poorly configured firewalls, or those subscribing to dodgy ISPs could find themselves effectively disconnected. DNSSEC adds digital signatures to normal DNS queries, substantially reducing the risk of falling victim to man-in-the-middle attacks such as the Kaminsky exploit, which caused widespread panic in July 2008. The standard is currently being rolled out cautiously to the internet's DNS root servers. In May, when all 13 roots are signed, anybody with an incompatible firewall or ISP will know about it, because they won't be able to find websites or send email.


    ...OR AM I?!


    :shock:

    .. until they figure out how to fool the new system.

    We humans like the break things so, expect the new system to be the same. :roll:

    everything is encripted, zone transfers, zone files, auth keys for the transfer - good luck with that pal
    you would be far better using gratuitous arp to spoof a man in the middle if you could get on there lan
