CIRA / .CA Launches DNSSEC Info Center and Draft DNSSEC Practice Statement

CIRAlogoDNSSEC is coming soon to the .CA domain! The Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA) recently announced a draft of their “DNSSEC Practice Statement” (DPS) that provides details around how they will be deploying and managing DNSSEC for the .CA domain. They are seeking comment on the DPS – and are also launching a “DNSSEC Knowledge Center” at:

http://cira.ca/knowledge-centre/technology/dnssec

The draft DPS is available on that site as is a useful DNSSEC FAQ.

All of this is in preparation for CIRA’s plans to sign the .CA zone in 2012 and to start signing .CA second-level domains in 2013.

It’s great to see this step from CIRA and we encourage all those interested to take a look at their DPS and send in any comments you may have.

If you are interested in learning more about CIRA’s activities, Jacques Latour spoke at our Toronto ION event in November and we published the video where he spoke about what CIRA is doing with both IPv6 and DNSSEC:
