We develop secure protocolsCONCEPTUAL WORK
In our work with the IETF, the Internet's international standardization body, we put our security expertise to a challenge by other global players, and create new standards to increase the security level of the Internet. The Domain Name System (DNS) is a crucial part of the Internet: every connection starts with a DNS lookup. Unfortunately, they are often insecure. In our most recent effort, we introduced a new protocol that automates the deployment of digital signatures in the DNS ("DNSSEC"). Read more in our RFC draft: Authenticated Bootstrapping of DNSSEC Delegations.
We run secure infrastructure for everyonePRACTICAL WORK
Protocol development has a long-term impact. To make a difference now, we decided to back deSEC, a Berlin-based non-profit. deSEC runs a free, security-first managed DNS hosting service, with DNSSEC automatically enabled. We are strongly aligned with deSEC's mission, and are glad to provide this project with funds, expertise, and technical infrastructure in multiple datacenters across the globe. Our support allows deSEC to handle thousands of DNS queries per second, anywhere.
Global distribution of our frontend servers ensures quick answers to queries, regardless of the user’s location on the globe. You can support deSEC by adopting frontend server to help us cover the cost or adding a frontend server in a corner of the world where there is no frontend yet.
