Within 3 Months: Government of India to Roll-out a New DNS Server for Citizens

Within 3 Months: Government of India to Roll-out a New DNS Server for Citizens

The Government of India (GOI) will soon roll out a new DNS server for its citizens, The Economic Times reported. DNS stands for domain name system. The system assigns domain names and translates them to IP addresses that enable browsers to upload websites sought.

Sources familiar to the matter stated that the new initiative by the government could safeguard users from various cyber threats like phishing or malware with sophisticated security features within a short time.

The new system is expected to be ready in the coming three months, and the government will be conducting a proof of concept next week. It will have advanced security features and will be available round the clock. The official was quoted as saying by ET.

The new upgraded version of the public system will be available across the country and will prevent an outage. It will pop up a warning message for the users who inadvertently click any malicious site; hence, it will prevent unwanted cyber-attacks. The users can access the system by just entering their IP address in their browsers.

GOI has started taking stringent measures towards cybersecurity issues as they are focusing to set up a new platform to prevent cyber-attacks among critical digital services.

Apart from the security, the new email system will have an advanced calendar option too. The user can transfer large files and can also schedule future emails.
