With a large portion of the population online, and an average internet use of 30 hours per week it has become apparent since its inception that the internet is a worldwide phenomenon.
Unfortunately, hackers are also now a large part of internet culture. Often finding new and more intelligent ways in which to dupe unsuspecting internet users. A popular hacking method involves changing DNS names to redirect users to an IP address of the hackers choosing.
DNSSEC (Domain Name System Security Extension) is designed to stop this, meaning if your intended site and system supports DNSSEC then you are guaranteed to land on your intended page.
Packet Clearing House is a non-profit research institute that supports operations and analysis in the areas of Internet traffic exchange, routing economics, and global network development. PCH installed three Axis mega pixel cameras alongside our live web streaming service Streamdays to give visitors to their site a chance to see one of their DNSSEC root servers at their Zurich base in action. This server and others like it are the future of the internet and its progression. These cameras now allow viewers a rare glimpse of one of the key elements that keep the internet safe and stable.
