The DNSSEC (Domain Name System Security Extensions) protocol was basically designed to protect the DNS (Domain Name System) system. In order to perform the intended tsk, the DNSSEC protocol primarily uses a technique called chain of trust. During chain of trust construction, the DNSSEC protocol actually ensures the identity/credentials of each node that come across with its parent node. Finally, when it reaches to the point of trust anchor (i.e. root), it stops the process.

The problem that we addressed in this paper is - effective utilization of chain of trust results to improve performance of the DNSSEC protocol. We proposed temporal BDI (Belief Desire Intention) based approach to enhance the performance of DNSSEC.
