FCC DNSSEC Implementation Guidlines for ISPs

In March 2012, the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC) published a set of “DNSSEC Implementation Practices for ISPs” through one of the working groups of the FCC’s Communications Security, Reliability and Interoperability Council (CSRIC).  The full report can be downloaded in PDF at:

http://transition.fcc.gov/bureaus/pshs/advisory/csric3/CSRIC-III-WG5-Final-Report.pdf

The 29-page document provides the following:

  • A brief overview of DNS and DNSSEC
  • A view of the current state of DNSSEC deployment
  • How Internet Service Providers (ISPs) can use DNSSEC
  • An analysis of the key drivers and challenges for implementing DNSSEC
  • Specific best practice recommendations to ISPs for deploying DNSSEC

If you are a network operator or Internet service provider seeking to understand the steps you need to undertake to support DNSSEC, this document is highly recommended.
