Deploy360 Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC)

When Will We Hit 100 DNSSEC-Signed TLDs?

In looking at ICANN’s TLD DNSSEC Report for today, I noticed that the number of top-level domains (TLDs) signed with DNSSEC is creeping very close to 100:

  • 313 TLDs in the root zone in total
  • 94 TLDs are signed;
  • 86 TLDs have trust anchors published as DS records in the root zone

Who will be the next 6 TLDs to be signed?

That will put us that much closer to one-third (104) signed… and then of course the next step is getting all the DS records in the root zone.

Excellent to see the growth in signed TLDs.  Looking forward to seeing the percentage growing even higher!
