Standard Presentation Online Workshop OARC 36 Day 2


James Richards (Nominet)


This presentation will discuss the analysis of domain names found within the Common Crawl dataset. It will cover the method of analysis and will focus on the characteristics of DNSSEC with regard to different types of web page content. It will include discussion on the proportion of websites that use content from only signed domains, the kinds of content in websites that are more likely to be delivered via a signed domain, and the variance in different DNSSEC algorithms seen across the dataset. It is hoped this analysis will offer an interesting perspective on the rate of DNSSEC deployment within different website components.
