ns2service.net now supports secure zone transfers

Wednesday, 22 July 2009

Our secondary DNS service at www.ns2service.net now supports secure zone transfer (TSIG authenticated).

Both zone transfer requests and responses are authenticated, so this provides protection in two ways; it prevents unauthorized transfers (only people / servers with the correct key can transfer), and it ensures data integrity on the secondary servers (not possible to spoof / inject false data during transfers).

You can enable TSIG when adding or editing a domain name in the ns2service.net web interface.

For details on enabling/requiring TSIG signed zone transfers on your primary Simple DNS Plus server see http://www.simpledns.com/newsitem.aspx?id=2387
