About DNS-Labs

Making DNS more robust has always been a priority for The Swedish Internet Foundation. In 2005 we were the first top-level domain to enable DNSSEC and our passion for DNS security continues to this day.

DNS-Labs, our DNS research and development team, was launched to encourage the development of new technologies and solutions within DNS.

Coordinating internal projects and in cooperating with scientists and experts from around the world, the lab takes on projects that advance DNS management in general and DNSSEC in particular. By developing and sharing new standards for the internet globally, DNS-Labs also pushes domain security further within Sweden.

DNS-Labs participates in several DNS communities and collaborates with people and organizations all over the world. Furthermore, the team cooperates with Swedish universities and authorities to support both research and operational security within the field.

We have gathered some of Sweden's most experienced DNS specialists to form DNS-Labs. This is the team and their areas of expertise.
