ICANN announces change to root deployment schedule

ICANN will delay by two weeks–to July 15–the scheduled July 1 deployment of DNSSEC at the root zone.  On that date, ICANN will distribute a “validatable, production, signed root zone” and publish a trust anchor. The announcement noted:

The schedule change is intended to allow ICANN and VeriSign an additional two weeks for further analysis of the DURZ rollout, to finalise testing and best ensure the secure, stable and resilient implementation of the root DNSSEC production processes and systems
