All times below are Atlantic Standard Time (AST), which is UTC-4.


DNSSEC For Everybody: A Beginner’s Guide – Sunday, 11 March

On Sunday, March 11, we’ll have our “DNSSEC For Everybody: A Beginner’s Guide” session that will include our usual skit where a bunch of engineers act out how DNS and DNSSEC work! Yes, it’s a good bit of fun and people have told us it has helped tremendously.

Please come with your questions and prepare to learn all about DNSSEC!


DNSSEC Workshop – Wednesday, 14 March

Our big 6-hour workshop will take place on Wednesday, March 14, from 09:00 – 15:00 in Room 208-BC. Lunch will be included. Thank you to our lunch sponsors: Afilias, CIRA, and SIDN.

The very full agenda includes:

  • DNSSEC Workshop Introduction, Program, Deployment Around the World – Counts, Counts, Counts
  • Panel: DNSSEC Activities, including representatives of .CA, .PR and .BR
  • A Sentinel for Detecting Trusted Keys in DNSSEC
  • Experience with DNSSEC Validation at CPE

  • Panel: Current State of Root KSK Rollover and What’s Next?
  • DNSSEC – How Can I Help?

It should be an outstanding session!


DNSSEC Implementers Gathering – 14 March

On the evening of Wednesday, March 14, after the DNSSEC Workshop is all over, we’ll have our informal “DNSSEC Implementers Gathering” bringing together people who have implemented DNSSEC or DANE in some way for a time to share information, have conversation and light snacks. Invitations have gone out to various DNSSEC mailing lists – if you are interested in attending please send a message to me at york@isoc.org. We thank Afilias for their generous sponsorship of this gathering at ICANN 61!


As I am not able to travel to ICANN 61, I want to thank Jacques Latour for stepping in to help with some of the emceeing and other meeting facilitation duties that I often do.

Please do join us for a great set of sessions about how we can work together to make the DNS more secure and trusted!
