D-Link improves security for home networking routers.
<p>D-Link Middle East & Africa, a provider of networking solutions for consumers, businesses and service providers, today announced that it has incorporated both CAPTCHA and DNSSEC into its network routers to improve security.</p><p>The company said that DNS Security Extensions (DNSSEC) is a suite of Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) specifications which adds security to be Interneta[euro](tm)s Domain Name System (DNS) to provide assurance that the information received from a Domain Name Server is authentic. These security extensions are designed to protect the Domain Name System from man-in-the-middle and cache poisoning attacks.</p><p>In addition, the integration of a CAPTCHA challenge for the routera[euro](tm)s web interface will increase protection by helping to prevent automated attacks against the router. CAPTCHA (Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart) is a challenge-response test that ensures that a response during a user logon is not computer-generated but instead is truly entered by a human hand, by requiring a user to manually enter a small amount of text displayed in an image to help prevent automated registration and fraud.</p><p>D-Link said that the new features are available on most of the products currently shipping. No specific model or pricing information was disclosed.</p>
