ICANN is to webcast the second of its root server DNSSEC key generation ceremonies, this coming Monday.
The ceremony, which will likely take several hours, takes place in El Segundo, California.
In it, staff will create the Key Signing Key used in cryptographically signing the very root of the DNS according to the DNSSEC standard.
The first such ceremony took place last month at a facility in Virginia. While it was recorded, as well as witnessed by several well-known security experts, it was not streamed live.
The full transition to a validatable DNSSEC-signed root is still scheduled for next Thursday, July 15.
Abley’s update is likely to be available here shortly.
