Note: This check is Not applicable for Windows 2012 DNS Servers that only host Active Directory integrated zones or for Windows 2012 DNS servers on a Classified network.

Log on to the DNS server using the Domain Admin or Enterprise Admin account.

Open an elevated Windows PowerShell prompt on a DNS server using the Domain Admin or Enterprise Admin account.

Type the following command:

PS C:\> Get-DnsServerResourceRecord -ZoneName example.com <enter>

Where example.com is replaced with the zone hosted on the DNS Server.

All of the zone's resource records will be returned, among which should be the NSEC3 RRs, as depicted below.

If NSEC3 RRs are not returned for the zone, this is a finding.
