Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

That is really an impossible question to answer. In essence neither can be considered more secure because you are only referring to name space and not security. If you would provide additional information for your scenario, we can then start a meaningful discussion on security.

    As dwiebesick already pointed out, you're talking about namespace, and not real security per se. That said, the domain.local would be favored "slightly" simply because it cannot be propagated elsewhere on the internet. But the same can be done with domain.com, and is commonly handled that way - I maintain an inside DNS server with my domain.com which has NO connection whatever with the external one version of my domain.com, so they're equally secure in that respect. However, if you're using the same physical server for both inside and outside Name Service, you're looking for trouble anyway. My $.02 Bob
