Internet Systems Consortium (ISC) and Thales e-Security have partnered to create an integrated DNSSEC solution for BIND, the open source software most widely used for providing DNS protocols for the Internet.
BIND implements the full DNSSEC standard, addressing issues in the DNS protocol. For enhanced security, BIND is integrated with Thales nShield hardware security modules (HSMs). These high assurance HSMs prevent physical and electronic tampering, and offer the strongest protection for DNSSEC keys.
