Since 15th December 2010 the [.gr] zone file as well as the zone files for the secondary level domains are digitally signed by making use of the DNSSEC technology. As the authoritative RRsets of the [.gr] zone are signed, DNS resolvers can use the public key that singed those records and thus authenticate them, which greatly improves the security and authenticity of the information returned from DNS name servers, eliminating DNS spoofing.
