D-Link News from http://www.tomshardware.com/.

D-Link is beefing router security with the inclusion of DNSSEC, CAPTCHA, and IPv6 certification.

D-Link Systems said Wednesday that it is now incorporating DNS Security Extensions (DNSSEC) into its home networking routers to help consumers defend against the rising assault of worms, viruses, hacking and other malicious Web attacks. Previously the company improved router security by adding Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart (CAPTCHA) to models DIR-615, DIR-625, DIR-628, DIR-655, DIR-825, DIR-855, DIR-685, and DGL-4500.

“Unlike other brands, the majority of currently shipping D-Link routers are more difficult to be compromised due to our advanced set of security features,” said A.J. Wang, chief technology officer, D-Link. “We’re excited to be the first in the market to announce we have taken the initiative to implement both CAPTCHA and DNSSEC into our routers, thus providing yet another layer of security, and we’ll continue to provide our users with the latest in advanced security technologies.”

As for CAPTCHA, D-Link integrated the technology in mid-2009. It’s a challenge-response test that verifies that a response during a user logon is actually a human and not computer-generated. Users confirm their organic origins by entering a small amount of text displayed in an image to help prevent automated registration and fraud.

“By incorporating both DNSSEC and CAPTCHA initiatives, D-Link routers now facilitate strong security thus protecting Internet users against man-in-the-middle, cache poisoning and other cyber attacks to ward off web hacking and phishing,” D-Link said.

The company also added that it will be migrating to IPv6 certification. In addition to the new realm of IP addresses, IPv6 brings “certain security measures” including IPSec, a method of authenticating and encrypting data transferred between pairs of hosts that wasn’t part of the specs for IPv4.

DNSSEC, CAPTCHA and IPv6 features are currently available on most currently shipping D-Link’s routers, however more will be updated.

    Very great post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wished to mention
    that I’ve truly loved surfing around your blog posts. In any case I’ll be subscribing on your

      Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as
      though you relied on the video to make your point.
      You obviously know what youre talking about, why
      throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

          I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your site?
          Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
          But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
          Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one
          or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

            After I initially left a comment I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on whenever a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment.
            Perhaps there is a way you are able to remove me from that service?
            Thank you!
