Dear Ladies and Gentlemen

In addition to the well-known web whois query, all DENIC web pages will be
connected via TLS as of Tuesday, 15 September. Once this change has been
made, browsers will automatically redirect to https when calling up the

The secured connection via the communication protocol HTTPS (Hypertext
Transfer Protocol Secure) protects against the intercepting the communication
between two computers. Thereby, the integrity and privacy of user data being
exchanged between the DENIC webserver and the DENIC website is ensured. With
this action, DENIC is addressing the expectations of users awaiting a secure
enviroment when visiting the DENIC website.

Data sent via HTTPS are secured by the Transport Layer Security protocol,
TLS. This entails three important security layers:

o Confidentiality: The transferred data is encrypted so that it cannot be
intercepted. If a user browses a website no one is able to eavesdrop his
conversations or steal his data.

o Integrity of data: It is not possible to change or damage data unnoticed
in the moment it is transferred - neither willful nor by accident.

o Authentification: The HTTPS connection enables the user to be sure of
communicating with the desired website. This authentification method protects
against man-in-the-middle attacks where a malicious third party mocks
the communication between two parties by pretending the identity of either
one of them.

On any further queries please do not hesitate to contact us.

Kind regards
