Schedule of DNSSEC Activities at ICANN 56 in Helsinki

ICANN 56 LogoStarting on Monday, 27 June 2016, the ICANN 56 meeting will take place in Helsinki, Finland.

This is the first meeting in ICANN’s new shorter “B” format of a “policy forum”. As a result, there have been some changes to the schedule of DNSSEC activities (which are expected to return to their regular format for ICANN 57 this fall in Hyderabad):

  • There is no “DNSSEC for Everyone” beginner session.
  • The “DNSSEC Workshop” has moved from Wednesday to Monday and is only 4 hours instead of the usual 6+ hours.
  • The “DNSSEC Implementers Gathering” has changed from Monday night to Tuesday night so as not to conflict with the ICANN reception.

Here is what the schedule looks like:

DNSSEC Workshop

The DNSSEC Workshop will take place on the morning of Monday, 27 June 2016. All times are Eastern European Summer Time (EEST), which is UTC+3.

DNSSEC Implementers Gathering

On Tuesday evening, many of us who have been involved with DNSSEC, DANE or “DNS security” will gather informally at a local restaurant in Helsinki.  We’ll have some light food, drinks and conversation.  If you’d like to join us, please email Dan York at [email protected] .

And… that will be it! If you are at ICANN 56 please do say hello – you can find Dan York in these sessions… or drop him a note at [email protected] and he can arrange a time to connect.
