AFNIC, the French registry, has kicked off DNSSEC deployment with a series of activities this month. It announced it has DNSSEC-signed the country-code top-level domains (ccTLDs) .fr and .re for France and the Reunion Islands, and that it has published the DNSSEC keys for .yt and .tf in the root zone, the ccTLDs for Mayotte and the Territory of the French Southern and Antarctic Lands, respectively.
This week, beginning on September 20, AFNIC will release version 3 of “ZoneCheck,” its DNS configuration test tool, a free software tool that integrates DNSSEC configuration tests. It is available on www.zonecheck.fr. You can read AFNIC’s issue paper on DNSSEC here.
