Cyber security company Liverton Security is the new provider of the Government Domain Name System (DNS) service.

The change will see all current .govt.nz and .parliament.nz domains shift to Liverton in February 2019.

Planning is underway to ensure a smooth transition, the Department of Internal Affairs (DIA) said, describing the shift as a "like-for-like" change with no significant change to the operating model.

DIA said it will work with current users of the domain management portal to make sure they’re prepared to use the new system.

Following the move, DNS services will be provided through the All of Government Telecommunications as a Service (TaaS) panel.

“We’re pleased to be able to offer this service as part of TaaS,” said general manager commercial strategy and delivery Chris Webb. “It’s another great example of government joining up to share innovation and pool resources.”

Agencies who self-service their DNS will continue to operate in the same way as they do today with access to a domain management portal and with domain name requests, moderation and provisioning happening in the same manner as today.

Agencies which currently manage their domains via email or phone support will be able to continue to do so.

Liverton Security is a New Zealand owned and operated cyber security supplier which also built the core infrastructure for SEEMail, the Government's encrypted email service.

Modica Group was the previous supplier.
