Parsons Corp. and the nonprofit organization Internet Society are partnering to deploy domain name system security extensions worldwide with the goal of protecting Internet infrastructure.
The company will work with DNSSEC information drive programs and develop tools that work to operate the protocol, Parsons said Tuesday.
Internet users built the DNSSEC, aiming to help users access the World Wide Web and secure DNS communications.
Mary Ann Hopkins, Parsons group president, said the collaboration aims to expand the use of the security extensions.
The Department of Homeland Security‘s science and technology directorate will fund the initiative.
The Internet Society provides the Internet infrastructure with resources and data through the Deploy360 Program.
