DNSSEC on IDN .test zones

by Richard Lamb on February 29, 2008

Yesterday ICANN began DNSSEC signing the IDN .test zones. Over the next few days, we will be testing and carefully monitoring the system. It is not expected that DNSSEC or the testing will have any effect on normal DNS operations. Any user experiences or problems or feedback should be reported to <richard.lamb@icann.org>. This deployment is intended to demonstrate certain capabilities and also provide both ICANN and those interested in DNSSEC an opportunity to gain further experience with this new technology.

DNSSEC (short for DNS Security Extensions) adds security to the Domain Name System.

DNSSEC was designed to protect the Internet from certain attacks, such as DNS cache poisoning [0]. It is a set of extensions to DNS, which provide: a) origin authentication of DNS data, b) data integrity, and c) authenticated denial of existence.

what is DNSSEC?

There are still people who do not use Wikipedia?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DNSSEC

It’s not Wikipedia’s best article and there are some strange sentences but it is a start.

Brett,

This is underway. We’re working with the IAB (who are the administrators of the .ARPA domain) to come up with a plan to complete this activity.
