> Status Update, December, 2009
> This is the first of a series of technical status updates intended to
> inform a technical audience on the progress of deploying DNSSEC in the
> root zone of the DNS.
> Details of the project, including documentation published to date, can
> be found at http://www.root-dnssec.org/.
> We'd like to hear from you. If you have feedback for us, please send
> it to rootsign at icann.org.
> This project involves the creation of a large volume of documentation,
> individual components of which will be released as they have completed
> internal review. The following documents are expected to be released
> as drafts before the end of December 2009:
> * Root Zone DNSSEC Deployment Plan
> * Root Zone Trust Anchor Publication
> Several root server operators have started testing a lightweight
> packet capture tool designed to provide a full record of priming
> queries received over the period covering DNSSEC deployment in the
> root zone. We hope this data collection will be in full production on
> all root servers before the end of December, providing baseline data
> which will allow the reaction of the system as a whole to deployment
> events to be observed.
> On 2009-12-01, the first pre-production KSR exchange between ICANN and
> VeriSign and the signing of the root zone within VeriSign's production
> infrastructure commenced. The signing, validation, measurement and
> monitoring infrastructure will now be subject to full internal
> testing.
> 2009-12-01: KSR exchange, root zone signing begins, internal to
> VeriSign and ICANN; generation of DURZ
