Are there any plans to incorporate support for the DANE protocol in Qualy's ssl server test?

 

The DANE protocol (RFC 6698) is a protocol which can be used to verify the authenticity of a TLS/SSL certificate for a domain name using DNS. Hereby it is possible to provide higher security for SSL/TLS certificates / stronger authentication of SLL/TLS certificates.

 

The DANE protocol uses TLSA DNS records to verify TLS/SLL certificates. TLSA records store hashes of TLS/SSL certificates.

(The DNS records needs to be signed with DNSSEC.)
