DNSSEC (Launch Day) improves information security in the Domain Name System

DNSSEC, or Domain Name System Security Extensions, ensures that your DNS queries do not fall into wrong hands. To function properly, DNSSEC requires support from the both domain name registrars and internet service providers.

Ask for DNSSEC!

To see whether an fi-domain name is signed with DNSSEC or not, check the domain’s whois information at https://www.traficom.fi/en/communications/fi-domains/fi-domain-name-search (External link) If DNSSEC is not yet deployed, ask your registrar to take action.

As an internet user, you can check whether DNSSEC support is enabled in your internet connection by visiting: dnssec-failed.org

If you can see the contents of the page, it means that your ISP does not support DNSSEC.

Ask them to change it!
