+ - Senate Bill Would Derail DNSSEC->

Submitted by ancientribe
ancientribe (1057834) writes "A key provision in the Protect IP intellectual property protection bill just approved by the Senate Judiciary Committee (and expected to ultimately become law) could sabotage Internet security and, specifically, DNSSEC, according to a who's who of Internet infrastructure and security experts. That group--which includes Dan Kaminsky, who discovered and helped get patched a serious flaw in DNS, Steve Crocker, an IETF pioneer; David Dagon of the Georgia Institute of Technology and a co-founder of Damballa; Danny McPherson, chief security officer for VeriSign; and Paul Vixie, principal author of the pervasive BIND DNS server software and creator of several DNS standards-- has published a paper describing how DNS filtering could disrupt DNS security efforts and inadvertently help cybercriminals."
