The Registry is ready for Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC). DNSSEC ensures the safety and reliability of the information provided by DNS systems (the protocol that makes navigation easier by using names, not numbers). Soon, on the specific test platform, it will be possible to try out the new DNS validation system for .it too. When the test is launched, all Registrars will be informed through their dedicated mailing list and through the Registry’s reserved-access portal.
