The Domain Name System is critical for the proper operation of applications on the Internet. Unfortunately, the DNS has a number of significant security weaknesses that can result in the compromise of Web sites, e-mail messages, and log-in sessions. Additionally, these weaknesses have been used as the basis for man-in-the-middle attacks on what are considered secure network protocols.
