Deployment watch: Nominet to sign .UK March 1

Nominet, the Internet registry for .UK domain names, has announced it will implement DNSSEC in zones it manages, beginning March 1, 2010 with the .UK top-level domain. The announcement notes:

With the signing of the root so close (scheduled for mid-2010), we have taken the decision not to include the keys in the major DNSSEC key stores…Instead, we will use the period as an extended operational test, waiting until the root goes live before publishing our trust anchor in the root zone.

The next phase will include signing and other SLDs, Nominet said.
