What would you like to see in a “State of DNSSEC Deployment 2016” report?

What information would you like to see in a “State of DNSSEC Deployment 2016” report?  We’ve begun work on such a report with the idea of capturing all the various DNSSEC statistics at a specific moment in time. Pulling them all together into one document – one place where we can see it all.  The goal is so that we can have a baseline to understand where we are across all aspects of DNSSEC. And then next year we can write a 2017 report that compares the progress from now until then.

I’ve put together a proposed outline for the report in a Github repo at:

I would welcome any and all feedback over the next few days. You can leave it here as a comment on the blog post. Or use social media to send a reply or leave a comment. Or open an issue on that Github repo. Or simply send me an email at [email protected].

We’ve already started work and are aiming to have this ready in early December. Any guidance now on points you think we should add (or remove) would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
