After publishing the Domain Name Security brochure in collaboration with the Institut Luxembourgeois de Régulation (ILR), the Restena Foundation is continuing to raise awareness of the importance of DNSSEC technology for securing one's online presence and ensuring the security of domain names.
On 29 June 2022, from 9:00 to 17:00, Dr Guillaume-Jean Herbiet, technical manager of the .lu service, will train students of the Digital Learning Hub (DLH) - a continuing professional education structure in Luxembourg launched in May 2022 - on the DNSSEC protocol and how it works.
Professionals with previous DNS experience or responsible for the DNS service wishing to implement DNSSEC in their organisation will gain hands-on experience through a technical workshop. At the end of the training day, learners will be able to:
- understand DNS and DNSSEC principles
- implement DNSSEC in simple and complex architectures with standard open-source software
- manage DNSSEC cryptographic keys (roll-over process)
- validate and troubleshoot DNSSEC signing,
- learn about DNSSEC best practices.
The course is open to anyone of adult age, Luxembourg resident or not, and a certificate of participation is issued by the Ministry of Education, Children and Youth. Participation is free of charge but subject to prior registration within the limits of the available places.
DNSSEC (Domain Name System Security Extensions) technology authenticates DNS records using cryptographic keys to ensure that each domain fits perfectly into a trusted chain within the tree of the Internet-based naming system.
