-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
An algorithm roll for the .gov zone will occur at the end of August, 2013. This notice is provided
as a courtesy to the DNSSEC community. No action should be required on your part.
The .gov zone is currently signed with algorithm 7 (RSASHA1-NSEC3-SHA1) and will be changed to use
algorithm 8 (RSA/SHA-256), bringing it in line with other top-level domains such as as .com, .net, and
the root zone. The zone will be signed with both algorithms for a period of approximately 10 days.
Further scheduling details will be provided one week before the algorithm roll begins.
