Status Update on Authenticated Bootstrapping of DNSSEC Delegations

Nov 30, 2021, 11:00 AM
Standard Presentation Online Workshop OARC 36 Day 2


Peter Thomassen (deSEC)


We present an update to the development and implementation of the DNSSEC Bootstrapping protocol since OARConline 35a. Protocol developments include, in particular, some structural changes to enable straightforward discovery of delegations which are ready for bootstrapping, on a per-parent basis. On the implementation side, we show prototype implementations for both the child (DNS operator) as well as the parental (registry/registrar) sphere, and give an overview of the implementation plans and status at various DNS operators and registries/registrars.
