The Domain Name System Security Extensions, referred to as DNSSEC, basically adds a secret, identifying code to each website address.
The domain name system is where the world"s internet addresses are registered and plays a key role in enabling computers around the world to speak with one another online.
According to a computer security specialist, applications commonly used on the internet can be tailored to essentially check the ID of a website to make certain it is what it claims to be.
Web browser software such as Google or Bing could be adapted to tell whether a bank log-in page is authentic.
He also added, "when a user receives an email from a bank they should know it came from a bank."
However, internet firms will take time to adapt the advantage of DNSSEC and for it to be applied to local domains in every country.
