First DNSSEC Key Ceremony for the Root Zone Held Today

The global deployment of Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC) is charging ahead. With ICANN 38 Brussels just around the corner, DNSSEC deployment will inevitably be the hot topic of discussion over the next few days. Case in point, today, ICANN hosted the first production key ceremony at a secure facility in Culpepper, Va. where the first cryptographic digital key was used to secure the Internet root zone. The ceremony's goal was simple: for the global Internet community to trust that the procedures involved with DNSSEC are executed correctly and that the private key materials are stored securely.

As the first gTLD to announce its production of DNSSEC, .ORG couldn't be more pleased to see that the deployment of DNSSEC in the root zone is underway, as the protocol benefits top-level domain managers and end-users alike by enabling the publication and location of trust anchors in the root zone and providing a consistent and convenient entry point to DNS security. That in mind, we congratulate the ICANN staff and 14 volunteers known as Trusted Community Representatives (TCRs) who participated in the ceremony. Your involvement reinforces the collective investment needed to ensure the security and stability of the Internet.
