For a long time, SHA-1 hash algorithms are considered non-secure. The bit-length is insufficient for the current computer power. In January 2020, researchers described an attack that has the potential for dangerous and far-reaching consequences in the DNS ecosystem.Continue reading “SHA-1 DNSSEC algorithms disabled”
By default, the PowerDNS api comes with it’s own built in web server and API endpoint, which listens on port 8081. This is not a problem if you use it on your internal trusted network, or if you just need to get something up quickly and don’t care about security. But if you want to access the API for example over the internet, it’s a good idea to use a more secure solution.
This blog post will detail how to wrap your PowerDNS webserver/API with SSL using the Nginx web server as a reverse proxy.Continue reading “Configuring SSL for PowerDNS api”

ICANN, the organisation who controls the root of the DNSSEC trust tree, however postponed this key rollover until further notice. This is because they see that about 5% of all resolvers still use the old key, and doing a rollover breaks DNS resolving. Continue reading “ICANN key rollover postponed”
