Czech voice and data mobile operator Vodafone has announced that it has secured its domain and web services with DNSSEC, making it the first mobile operator in the Czech Republic to do so. The company notes that its customers have two ways to find out whether their connections are secure:
On the www.dnssec.cz site is an automatic test, which displays a green or red icon showing the key users, whether their connection is, respectively, not safe. The second option offers an add-on for Firefox, which can be downloaded for free from www.dnssec-validator.cz. This program allows you to control whether or not the currently visited domain is protected, again displaying an icon key, this time directly in the address bar of your browser window.
Part of the international Vodafone Group, the company serves more than three million customers in the Czech Republic.
