EDNS Key Tag promises to provide much-needed information about the DNSSEC configuration of recursive resolvers. Sadly, this technology is not yet standardized or implemented. Luckily, we can fake it in a useful way. This presentation very briefly covers the EDNS Key Tag as well as a hack built to provide EDNS Key Tag functionality for systems that do not support it. Also, we learn that awk is amazingly useful and cool. Yes, awk.
