The DNSSEC Deployment Coordination Initiative will sponsor a day-long workshop at the FOSE Conference and Expo for federal, state and local government information technology professionals on Wednesday, July 20.
“The deployment diaries: DNSSEC in U.S. federal systems and beyond” will assess progress, identify lessons learned and offer new solutions and models for successful deployment, with an emphasis on solutions. Participants will learn:
Where their agencies stand compared to the rest of the .gov domain
How DNSSEC fits into current cybersecurity priorities for the U.S. government
Successful deployment models in the public and private sectors, from other domains, ISPs, registrars and more
New apps, APIs, tools and products to help with federal deployment
Speakers include executives from federal agencies, including GSA, NIST, and Homeland Security; nonprofits such as the Internet Systems Consortium and the Public Interest Registry, .org; and companies including Afilias, Comcast, F5 Networks, Infoblox, Microsoft, Neustar, Nominet, Nominum, Secure64, Sparta, VeriSign, and more.
An extra $35 fee is required for workshop registration. Break refreshments will be provided, and attendees will learn what to ask vendors about DNSSEC deployment solutions, as well as lesson learned directly from federal and private-sector deployment. DNSSEC suppliers will be featured at the FOSE Expo. Go here to register for FOSE at a 20 percent discount. Be sure to add the DNSSEC workshop as an “add-on” to your registration.
