Yesterday, October 11, ICANN, the IP and domain name management corporation, successfully updated its DNS security by changing cryptographic keys. This update was the first in the history of the global Internet.
Initially, it was planned to carry out a similar procedure back in 2017, but later ICANN made changes to its plans for more thorough preparation. Shortly before the due date, the organization warned of possible network disruptions associated with the update, but the key change went without any problems.
Domain name system security is ensured by DNSSEC technology, which controls the authenticity of DNS data.
