Secure64 offers DNSSEC for $20k

Secure64 Software has released a budget version of its DNS signing software, Secure64 DNS Signer.

The $19,995 package promises to automate DNSSEC key generation, management, and zone signing. It’s compatible with BIND, Windows and NSD.

While Secure64 is currently targeting smaller government agencies, due to the security mandates they have to abide by, I expect these types of products to pick up enterprise traction over the next few years.

Deploying DNSSEC is hard, but pretty soon it will be a must-have. With root signing currently set for July, and .com signing due in less than a year, Secure64 will probably do pretty well when enterprises start asking for more secure DNS.

Maybe we should go back to .ARPA?

Care to guess how long it would have taken 25 years ago?
