As DNSSEC deployment rolls out in government domains in the U.S. and elsewhere, we’re seeing more lists that visually display the status of deployment within a top-level domain. Here are some recent examples:
- From the U.S. .GOV TLD: Using a list of domain names taken from the web sites catalogued in the USA.gov website, Initiative partner Scott Rose of the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology wrote a script that queried which had a secure link from .GOV. The results, shown here, note that the “U.S. Federal Government maintains some domain names outside of the .gov gTLD. Likewise, there are state, local, and sovereign nation delegations found in .gov that are not required to deploy DNSSEC, but may deploy voluntarily.” Signed U.S. state domains include Vermont’s vermont.gov, vermonttreasurer.gov, and healthvermont.gov, the state’s health department; Idaho’s idaho.gov and idahobyways.gov from the state’s transportation department; Louisiana‘s lacoast.gov, from the Louisiana Coastal Wetlands Conservation and Restoration Task Force; the Tennessee Valley Authority’s tva.gov; Utah Fire Info, a federal-state partnership; and Virginia.gov.
- From Sweden: Two separate pages display DNSSEC deployment progress among municipal domains and in public sector agencies there, with hundreds of sites listed.
Dot-SE (The Internet Infrastructure Foundation) has released a [now final] report it commissioned from independent IT security firm Certezza focused on the functionality of signing and key management tools. The report notes, “the product standard is good and the tested products work as expected.”
