Product Overview - SolidDNS
The Internet as we know it today would not function without the Domain Name System, or DNS. DNS serves as the telephone directory of the Internet, allowing the use of names to access hosts on the Internet instead of using the difficult to remember IP addresses, thus making Internet navigation easier.
The distributed nature of DNS data makes it scalable to the entire world, but this also makes it possible for domain administrators to misconfigure existing servers. This also presents great opportunities to hackers who often attack poorly secured or even misconfigured DNS servers, creating a grave security threat to all Internet users that rely on accurate and reliable DNS data.
The inevitable global transition to the Next Generation Internet standard, or IPv6, presents yet another problem for DNS administrators whose DNS servers cannot handle the mapping of domain names to IPv6 addresses or cannot handle the accurate entry of IPv6 data.
These issues, however, are capably addressed by the InfoWeapons SolidDNS™ appliance.
The SolidDNS™ Server Appliance platform provide DNS with DNSSEC and DHCP service to networks of any size in a highly secure manner. It supports both IPv4 and IPv6 addressing schemes, making the creation and delegation of lower level domains easier and more accurate. The appliance can even automatically create reverse mappings for every registered domain or network.
SolidDNS™ has a web-based Graphical User Interface (GUI) that can correctly handle IPv4 and IPv6 data, and can even automatically renumber IPv6 network prefixes, ensuring rapid and error-free entry of IPv6 data. The web-based GUI connects over SSL/TLS, with added security in the form of strong client authentication using X.509 digital certificates.
SolidDNS™ carries the IPv6 Ready Phase-2 "Gold" Logo (Logo ID: 02-C-000272). It certifies that the product supports the core protocols, has passed the tests for functionalities such as mobility and remote administration, and is now ready for commercial deployment.
SolidDNS™ supports ENUM, the suite of protocols that unifies the global telephone system with the Internet. SolidDNS™ also allows multiple organizations to use a single appliance for all their DNS needs via a "virtual" encapsulated server, which acts as if the appliance was a DNS server exclusively dedicated to each organization alone!
SolidDNS™ uses an integrated BIND DNS Server that can automatically update configuration files and the Graphical User Interface. This prevents the loss of any records that may occur during the regeneration of the BIND configuration files as well as allow the administrators to immediately view the DNS records stored in the database.
SolidDNS™ is the first DNS appliance with an easy-to-use graphical management interface that simplifies the intricacies of DNSSEC while taking full advantage of its power to secure DNS. The fastest models boast over 125,000 queries per second, making SolidDNS™ the fastest, and easiest dual-stack DNS Solution to provide DNSSEC functionality.
