Hi,

TLS is prone to Man-In-The-Middle attacks with unjustly obtained intermediate certificates (e.g. firewall appliances).
The DNSSEC KSK-rollover worked like a charm.

So I suggest to make DANE-TLS mandatory for TLS to prevent Man-In-The-Middle attacks with unjustly obtained intermediate certificates.

Regards,

Renne
