3 DNSSEC Sessions Happening At ICANN 50 Next Week in London

As I mentioned in a post to the Deploy360 blog today, there are three excellent sessions relating to DNSSEC happening at ICANN 50 in London next week. They are:

DNSSEC For Everybody: A Beginner’s Guide
Mon, 23 June 2014 - 17:00 to 18:30 BST - Thames Room

This is a great introduction to what DNSSEC is all about, how it works and how it can help make the Internet and DNS more secure. It’s done in a fun way that includes a skit along with discussion. This event will be live-streamed for remote participants.

DNSSEC Implementers Gathering
Mon, 23 June 2014 - 10:00 to 21:30 BST - a nearby pub

This is an informal gathering of people who have actually implemented DNSSEC to share information and learn from each other. Deadline to RSVP is Thursday, June 19 (tomorrow).

DNSSEC Workshop
Wed, 25 June 2014 - 08:30 to 14:45 BST - Hilton 1-6

This is the “big” DNSSEC session of the week that brings together technical people from across the industry to share information about what is happening with DNSSEC deployment. Topics at this session include:

  • Introduction and DNSSEC Deployment Around the World
  • DNSSEC Activities in the European region
  • The Operational Realities of Running DNSSEC
  • DANE and DNSSEC Applications
  • DNSSEC Automation
  • Panel Discussion/Demonstrations on Hardware Security Modules (HSMs)

This DNSSEC Workshop will be live-streamed for remote participants and will be recorded. The slides will also be available for download.

If you are at ICANN 50 (or want to listen remotely), there should be some great DNSSEC information available. If you are going to be there, please do say hello as you will find me in all of these DNSSEC events.

P.S. I will note that these DNSSEC events are just a part of the overall activities at ICANN 50 that we at the Internet Society are interested in. For a broader view, please see the Internet Society Rough Guide to ICANN 50.
