Free DNSSEC tool released by Dan Kaminsky

At BlackHat in Abu Dhabi yesterday, security researcher Dan Kaminsky released “Phreebird,”  a free toolkit designed to show organizations how easy DNSSEC is to implement by letting them try it out.  Dark Reading notes:

The goal is to show how DNSSEC could be used to “bootstrap” trust — a.k.a. authentication — across organizations, he says, authenticating clients, business partners, customers, contractors, and other groups with one another….Kaminsky hopes to dispel concerns that DNSSEC will be complex, disruptive, and expensive to deploy in organizations. “Application developers don’t want to be cryptography experts,” Kaminsky says. “They just want the key … and to move on.”

You can find the new toolkit on the BlackHat website.
