Over the next few weeks SafeDNS is being expanded from wi-fi and residence hall networks (in place since March 2013) to all campus networks.

What is SafeDNS?

SafeDNS is an added feature to our existing DNS infrastructure.  It is designed to help prevent computers at Cornell from being infected by malicious software.

How does SafeDNS work?

SafeDNS takes a list of known malicious Internet sites and compares it to the sites being requested by Cornell systems.  If a Cornell system requests a bad site, the computer will be redirected to a safe warning page instead of being sent to the hostile site.
