Abstract: Provides an overview of the critical resources of DNSSEC and RPKI. Domain Name Servers are not secure but this overview of DNSSEC demonstrates how attaching signatures make it spoof proof. Then learn about Resource Public Key Infrastructure, a tool that provides more credibility to identify number resource holders that leads to more routing security.
