What is DNSSEC?

What is DNS?
DNS is short for Domain Name System, the base of the internet. With DNS all traffic on the internet is regulated. All servers on the internet have a unique number: the IP address. DNS makes sure that wherever you use domain names in your e-mail or browser, that that will be translated to the IP address of the server in question (where the e-mail or website runs). If you type for example www.hoasted.com , a rocket speed search request is done for the IP address: 188.8.131.52 Your browser sends then the request for that website to that IP address and the website will show up in the browser.
What DNSSEC does
DNSSEC is the abbreviation of Domain Name System Security Extensions, extra secured DNS. DNSSEC adds a digital signature to the DNS protocol, so it will be much more difficult to falsify the results of a DNS request. Technically speaking: this happens by using an encryption with a public and a private key. DNSSEC is thus for domain names what SSL is for websites.
Why use DNSSEC?
Falsifying the results of a DNS query could mean that a user ends up on a forged website or mail server, without noticing himself. Hackers do that by for example copying websites of banks and using hacked computers or WIFI networks change the DNS for that bank to the hacked website, so thy get the data of the victim bank customers.
