ICANN 54 logoIf you are interested in learning more about the current state of DNSSEC and DANE technologies, tools and deployment, the slides and videos are now available from the ICANN 54 DNSSEC activities that happened this month in Dublin, Ireland.

The first session was the “DNSSEC For Everybody: A Beginner’s Guide” that includes a skit where DNS and DNSSEC interactions are acted out.  It may or may not win a Tony award… but it was fun to do and people have generally told us that it helps them understand DNS and DNSSEC. The basic page for the DNSSEC For Everybody session that includes the slides and handout can be found at:


The video recording is available online and is embedded here:

The second session was the 6-hour DNSSEC Workshop on Wednesday, 21 October 2015.  You can see the agenda and download all the slides at:


The session was recorded in two video segments due to the lunch break:

There were some great discussions about DNSSEC deployment around Europe, around challenges getting ISPs to start validating, about new mechanisms to automate DNSSEC signing – and a lengthy session at the end about using DNSSEC and DANE to secure email, complete with some live demos that sadly didn’t work out so well.  (But hey, we appreciated the speakers’ trying live demos!)

Morning session:

Afternoon session:

Thank you to all involved for what turned out to be a great day of interesting sessions!

Watch for the Call for Presentations for ICANN 55 in Marakech – coming soon!
