DS record points to wrong DNSKEY record

This alert notifies you that the DS record handed out by the parent zone points to the wrong DNSKEY record for the zone. DNS resolvers with DNSSEC validation enabled could fail to resolve names in the zone, resulting in a denial of service.

You can set this alert to monitor multiple DNS zones.


To create this alert, you need to have the ALERTS_DNSSEC scope. For more information, contact your account administrator.
