VeriSign offers registrars new DNSSEC signing service

VeriSign announced that it will offer a new in-the-cloud DNSSEC signing service to registrars to help them sign domain names and manage keys without investing in additional equipment and resources.  Pat Kane, Assistant General Manager of Naming Services at VeriSign, noted, “we want to do everything we can to encourage the adoption of DNSSEC, which is an essential tool for securing the Internet.”

The new service provides the initial cryptographic signing, routine re-signing of zone resource records and management of key rollover schedules and zone re-signing.  An evaluation period will be offered to VeriSign’s registrar partners to review the service; the offer ends at the end of 2011.
