U.S. federal agencies will have deployed DNSSEC, the security protection for the domain name system, by year-end 2009. This day-long session will assess the federal response to securing its domains; examine challenges faced by agencies deploying DNSSEC; and share lessons learned and next steps as DNSSEC is deployed in other sectors, including .org, .edu, .com and government domains in other nations. Software and hardware naming solutions also will be presented to update participants on available options for automating or easing deployment challenges.

 

This special presentation by the DNSSEC Deployment Coordination Initiative (http://www.dnssec-deployment.org), supported by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, will also present software and hardware naming solutions to update participants on available options for automating or easing deployment challenges.

About the DNSSEC Deployment Coordination Initiative

 

The DNSSEC Deployment Initiative works to encourage all sectors to voluntarily adopt security measures that will improve security of the Internet’s naming infrastructure, as part of a global, cooperative effort that involves many nations and organizations in the public and private sectors. The Science and Technology Directorate of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security provides support for coordination of the initiative.
