Welcome to the Strategic DNS Ops and Security Skills Course & Certification Test
A working knowledge of the Domain Name System (DNS) is essential to a system administrator's career. Not only is core DNS operations and support imperative to have mastered, but securing the platform has become equally as critical. These days, operations, support and security all carry equal weight to any organization who relies on this technology. Domain Name Servers (DNS) are the Internet's equivalent of a phone book. They maintain a directory of domain names and translate them to Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. We need DNS’ because although domain names are simple to remember, computers access websites based on IP addresses. DNS holds the key to your existence on the Internet, which is why you want to control DNS for your domain. The Strategic DNS Operations and Security Skill Course Certification course will cover the operations, support and security for DNS on both the Windows and BIND platforms. Knowing how queries work, and the difference between authoritative and caching nameservers, are crucial to understanding DNS best practices. The remaining important concepts discussed in this course are the topology of how and where you deploy DNS servers, and the configuration files that dictate how they operate.
