What is DNSSEC?

What is DNS?
DNS stands for Domain Name System, the basis of the internet. This regulates all traffic over the internet. All servers on the Internet have a unique number: the IP address. It ensures that where you use domain names in, for example, email or your browser, that they are translated to the IP address of that particular server (where the email or website is running). For example if you www.hoasted.com is typed, a quick search for the IP address follows: 188.8.131.52 and the information is sent from the relevant server to the browser of your computer, tablet or mobile.
What DNSSEC does
DNSSEC stands for Domain Name System Security Extensions, which means extra secure DNS. DNSSEC adds a digital signature to the DNS protocol, making it much more difficult to forge the results of a DNS request. Technical: this is done through encryption with a public and a private key. DNSSEC is for SSL what domain names are for websites.
Why use DNSSEC?
Forging a DNS result could mean that a user ends up on a forged website or mail server without realizing it. Hackers do this by, for example, rebuilding banks' sites and then using hacked computers or WIFI networks to change the DNS for that bank to the hacked site, so that they get the data from the affected bank customers.
