DNSSEC, or Domain Name System Security Extensions, is a system used to enhance the security of websites by preventing data leakage through DNS spoofing or DNS poisoning. DNSSEC works by verifying whether the data in a child zone matches the parent zone. Some people mistakenly consider DNSSEC as a replacement for SSL. However, according to PANDI Indonesia, DNSSEC is not a substitute for SSL, it does not encrypt data, and it is not designed to mitigate DDoS attacks.
