DNSSEC Goes Inside the White House

For months, our community has been abuzz with one word: DNSSEC. Now, it's trickling into the White House.

Just yesterday, U.S. Department of Commerce Secretary Gary Locke announced, as part of a larger cybersecurity policy review, that the Commerce Department is one step closer to making "significant progress in helping the Internet become more robust and secure" by deploying DNSSEC at the root of the Domain Name System (DNS). "This action will essentially give a 'tamper proof seal' to the address book of the Internet — a seal that gives Internet users confidence in their online experience," he stated.

We couldn't agree more. As the first generic top-level domain to sign second-level delegations, .ORG not only applauds this historic moment, but we are also proud to be an active participant. Deploying DNSSEC at the root zone exemplifies the success that can be achieved through public-private sector cooperation. With cybersecurity atop of all our minds — whether you live on Pennsylvania Avenue or on Main Street, such collaboration is essential to ensuring that our technology solutions and protocols help shape policy as well as Internet standards. As Secretary Locke mentioned, "The Internet...is the cornerstone of the global economy," responsible for $10 trillion in annual online transactions. It's about time we collectively make it all that more secure.
