.lt secured with DNSSEC
Kaunas University of Technology has completed the project – DNS Security Extensions (DNSSEC) technology implementation in .lt domain. Service providers registering and administering customers’ domain names with ending .lt can already start using digital signatures in order to avoid potential DNS security vulnerabilities – tampering of domain name resolution results.
Daiva Tamulionienė, the head of Kaunas University of Technology Internet Service Centre, says that this new technology might be particularly relevant to information systems, which uses .lt domains and require enhanced security, also to electronic banking or e-commerce portals. DNSSEC technology enables reliable authentication of responses to DNS queries, preventing them from tampering.
.lt domain name signing ceremony took place at Kaunas University of Technology Data Centre on 31 January 2013. During this event .lt domain name DNSSEC signatures were generated using up-to-date cryptographic hardware security module (HSM). This module used for protection of .lt domain DNSSEC signatures has certificate of FIPS 140-2 level 3 standard, which guarantees protection of private security keys used for .lt domains signing.
On 20 February 2013 Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) set .lt domain digital signatures into root DNS servers, and DNSSEC technology in .lt domain begun to function.

Changes in procedural regulation for top-level .lt domain
The procedural regulation for top-level .lt domain will be updated as of Nov. 1st of 2009.
The main change is .lt domains pricing policy: since 2009-11-01 discounts policy (based on registrar domain count and growth) will no longer be used, instead same-price policy will be adopted.
Detailed description of all changes
100 000 .lt domains milestone reached, the .lt domain registry, is proud to announce the milestone of 100 000 registered .lt domains. This number of .lt domains was reached just over two years after new .lt registry system deployment. Variuos .lt top level domain statistics can be found in our report.
IDN domains
Currently registered IDN domains (names, which contain letters with diacritical marks) account for %1 of all .lt domains.
According to our calculations, about half of lithuanian words contain letters with diacritical marks, based on this fact we expect IDN domain count to further increase.
.lt IDN domain statistics

.lt domain name is accessible using IPv6 protocol since 9 March, 2008. This is one of the .lt domain registry planned DNS service infrastructure upgrades, to facilitate internet users and internet service providers who are using or want to start using IP version 6 protocol.
After successful launch of new service, .lt domain DNS servers with IPv6 support have quite small, but steady DNS query traffic. This proves that demand for launched new service is real.
