By Dan YorkDirector, Internet Technology

The CZ.NIC Labs team labels this a “technical preview” with a version number of “0.1”.  Judging from the warnings they provide the extension is still very early in the development cycle.

Still, for those interested in experimenting with a way to view the DNSSEC validation status of sites you are visiting, this new extension and toolbar provide a way to see this information directly inside of IE.
