DNSSEC Practice Statement

CIRA has drafted a DNSSEC Practice Statement (DPS) to provide this service to the Canadian Internet community.

The DPS provides an operational outline of all the details on how CIRA plans to develop, maintain and manage DNSSEC deployment. At its core, DNSSEC is a set of Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) specifications for adding origin authentication and data integrity to the DNS and is implemented through public key cryptography into the DNS hierarchy. What results is a more secure connection for the end user.

CIRA’s DNSSEC Practice Statement is available here for comment from the Canadian Internet community.
