When did Windows-type syntax invade Linux?

Apart from this not working here, and please don't ask me why because I don't know, I really miss systems where I can just edit a file and have it do what I say.

RFC 8945: Secret Key Transaction Authentication for DNS (TSIG)

Le #DNS a des vulnérabilités à plusieurs endroits, notamment des risques d'usurpation, qui permettent de glisser une réponse mensongère à la place de la bonne. #TSIG, normalisé dans ce RFC (qui remplace le RFC 2845), est une solution de vérification de l'intégrité du canal. TSIG est surtout utilisé entre serveurs DNS maîtres et esclaves, pour sécuriser les transferts de zone.
