Hi,

At the SecTor (www.sector.ca) conference yesterday, CIRA launched the
DNSSEC test bed for dot-ca. You can find the presentation that Norm
Ritchie and I gave, plus testbed related information, in the links below.

A video with synchronised slide deck should be up on the SecTor site in
the next week or so. We also received some press coverage:

During the two day conference, everyone using the local wifi network were
given two DNSSEC enabled resolvers (unbound) via DHCP configured with
all known production TLD DNSSEC keys, the dot-ca test bed key and zone,
and DLV enabled. We did not receive a single complaint and we noticed
no issues ourselves, though I'm sure our audience was not as tech savvy
as IETF or RIPE attendees. Some statistics can be found (for a little
while) at:

If you have a .ca domain, please join our test bed!
