New Release 1.14 of DNSSEC-Tools – Get It Now!

Recently at the ICANN 45 DNSSEC Deployment Workshop, we learned that the great folks over at the DNSSEC Tools project had just released a new version of their great package of DNSSEC-related tools.  The new version 1.14 is available in several forms from:

http://www.dnssec-tools.org/download/

Some of the changes include:

  • dnssec-nodes – many new features and graphing capabilities
  • libval – support for the TLSA recorded needed for the DANE protocol
  • dnssec-check – increased stability

As an advocate for the powerful capabilities of DANE, I’m particularly pleased to see that support added for TLSA records.

You can find out more information on the main dnssec-tools.org web page.

I know from speaking with Sparta’s Russ Mundy at the ICANN 45 workshop that he and the others involved with the DNSSEC-Tools project are definitely looking for user feedback – and also looking to understand what other DNSSEC-related tools people might find useful.  Please do give this new release a try and let the team there know how it works for you.
