.ME IS ALL ABOUT YOU – AND ALL ABOUT SECURITY – WITH DNSSEC

PODGORICA, Montenegro – Dec. 17, 2010 The .Me Registry and partner, Afilias, a global provider of Internet infrastructure services, announced today that .ME domains are now enabled with Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC).

“Dot-ME is a popular and innovative top-level domain option offering many unique ways to personalize any site,” said Predrag Lesic, Executive Director of the .ME Registry.  “Ensuring that dot-ME remains a useful and intuitive domain space is our main goal, but we also recognize the need to deploy the newest innovations in security. Enabling DNSSEC allows us to provide a safer and more trustworthy experience for .ME website owners and visitors.”

DNSSEC ensures that when a user requests a website, the correct address is both received and used for the connection.  Without DNSSEC, a malicious attacker could insert the wrong address, directing the user to a forged website.  DNSSEC adds digital signatures to the information in the DNS and automatically ensures users are not redirected to an unintended destination.

“We congratulate the .ME Registry for taking this step to ensure a safer Internet for all dot-ME users, and are happy to provide the technology that makes DNSSEC implementation possible,” said Philipp Grabensee, Chairman of Afilias.
A “friends and family” period is now in effect, allowing the public to learn more about DNSSEC using a select group of second level .ME domain names. The list of “friends and family” domains includes: nic.me, domain.me, menet.me and telenor.me. Comcast, the largest ISP in the United States, is also participating. Comcast has signed xfinity.me, its local consumer cable brand, as well as 15 other .ME domains.
