Is DNSSEC going to be supported?

Are there any plans to have Linode's name servers support DNSSEC for master zones? If so, when is it estimated to be available?

That's an excellent idea! I don't have any ETA but I'll make certain the team here keeps DNSSEC support in mind for future updates.

It's been a year… any ETA on supporting DNSSEC on Linode's NS?

I would love to have DNSSEC activated for my domain. It doesn't protect against all DNS-based attacks, but it's a start.

Thank you.

I have cPanel installed on linode and software update feature has DNSEC Clustering..

This has been an update that has been lingering for close to 8 months.

If I enable the update to install DNSEC, will this disrupt my current DNS with linode?

@thx2012 Since Linode's DNS Manager does not support DNSSEC, we recommend disabling this feature.

This cPanel forum post mentions the below steps:

in the Feature manager, WHM -> Packages -> Feature Manager , disable Manage DNSSEC.

cPanel released information about this on their blog, and I recommend reaching out to them for any questions on disabling this feature when you upgrade.

I have added your comment to our internal tracker in regards to adding future support for DNSSEC.

Hope that helps!

Another user wanting DNSSEC. Would be a great addition, @Linode!

Run your own dns servers, i do that👍

@undecided Thank you for letting us know you're interested in DNSSEC too. I've gone ahead and added your interest to our internal tracker!

Add one more….thanks!
I run my own DNS but would like to see this supported on Linode's also.
