Enterprises are increasingly eager to adopt the DNSSec security protocols, according to a recent Forrester Research report commissioned by VeriSign.
The report identified a common belief that DNSSec could be put in place within the next six months, and that companies are receiving higher customer demand for the technology.
The DNSSec system is designed to shield DNS servers from manipulation or 'cache poisoning' attacks, and has been pitched by VeriSign and other security organisations as a way to bring authentication protection to DNS servers.
VeriSign has set the first quarter or 2011 as the target for deploying DNSSec within the .com domain.
"The internet is an increasingly critical infrastructure for our government, economy, society and national security, which is why it is so important that the entire internet community adopts DNSSec," said VeriSign naming services assistant general manager Pat Kane.
"If hardware vendors, software companies, ISPs, registries and registrars work collaboratively, it will help to facilitate a smooth, widely effective implementation of DNSSec."
The company will provide further details on the report next week, along with a series of webinars and white papers.
