Take a university course in DNS remotely this autumn

It is now possible to apply for a university course in DNS provided by The Swedish Internet Foundation at KTH Royal Institute of Technology. The course provides basic and detailed knowledge of DNS and DNS protocols, including DNSSEC and IDN. The course is aimed at professionals.

.SE – first TLD to support CSYNC

The Swedish Internet Foundation has been a big supporter of DNSSEC from the beginning. .SE was the first TLD to be DNSSEC signed back in 2005, long before the root. Now we continue to innovate and allow DNS operators to update registry data with the help of DNSSEC.

Easier handling of records with automated DNSSEC provisioning

DNSSEC is currently enabled for almost half of the .se zone, and slightly less than that for .nu. To reach the other half of the “market”, DNSSEC needs to be more accessible. That is why we now add a new and easier method of updating records.

Working towards a safer internet

The objective of DNS-Labs is to make the internet more secure and robust.
