The presentation provides some measurements on the incremental cost of signing a domain name. It looks at the profile of additional time taken to resolve a signed name by a dnssec-validating resolver and from the perspective of the authoritative name server quantifies the additional query and traffic load when serving a signed zone as distinct from an unsigned zone. The presentation also extrapolates this load to the situation when all resolvers perform DNSSEC-validation
