This process ensures that your institution is the one authorized to modify the domain name service (DNS) records for your domain. See Configure new domains in Apple School Manager and Configure new domains in Apple Business Manager.
MDM solutions can specify pinned certificates for the MDM check-in and connection (server) URLs. This information is specified as part of the MDM enrollment payload.
