Most news media don't use DNSSEC
We checked the domain names of all the Netherlands' regional and national daily papers and broadcast news providers to see whether they were DNSSEC-enabled. And we found that a massive 85 per cent of the websites weren't using DNSSEC (a cryptographic security enhancement). Omrop Fryslân was the country's only regional news site with DNSSEC enabled, for example. The national media outlets didn't come out of the survey much better. Although 46 per cent of all .nl domain names are signed with DNSSEC, the figure for news media domains is much lower.
News media have work to do
Where domain name security is concerned, the news media have a lot of ground to make up. Newspapers and broadcasters are well advised to secure their websites and to make sure they use the latest internet standards. Use the tool on www.internet.nl to check whether a news website uses modern standards such as DNSSEC or HTTPS.
