Better Security for DNS Coming?

RSA Data Security, Inc. and the Internet Software Consortium announced an agreement providing ISC with a free license for DNSsafe, an implementation of the RSA cryptosystem, limited for use only in authenticating Domain Name System resource records

According to a widely distributed e-mail message from Carl Malamad,

The donation allows the implementation of the DNS Security standards in BIND, a publicly-available implementation of the Domain Name System. RSA has also agreed to offer the same license to other DNS developers for a three-year period, so that non-BIND-based DNS products can also be secured. Virtually every device on the Internet currently implements the existing (insecure) DNS. We believe the DNSsafe security engine will be embedded in a wide variety of products, including routers and firewalls, and we hope that eventually Secure DNS will appear in every device on the Internet.
