[Apologies for duplicate emails]

Dear Colleagues,

The K-root server, operated by the RIPE NCC, is now serving the signed
root zone as part of a staged global deployment of DNSSEC across the
root zone system.

Starting with L-root in January 2010, the root servers began serving the
signed root zone in batches in the form of a Deliberately Unvalidatable
Root Zone (DURZ). This roll out period is scheduled to end in May 2010
and ICANN is scheduled to sign the root zone with real keys and release
the trust anchor after 1 July 2010.

For more information, please see:

If you have any questions about this, please don't hesitate to contact
<dns-help at ripe.net>.


Anand Buddhdev,
DNS Services Manager, RIPE NCC
