DNSSEC Workshop Streaming Live from ICANN 55 in Marrakech on Wednesday, March 9, 2016

What is the current state of DNSSEC deployment around the world and also in Africa? How can you deploy DNSSEC at a massive scale? What is the state of using elliptic curve crypto algorithms in DNSSEC? What more can be done to accelerate DNSSEC deployment?

Discussion of all those questions and much more can be found in the DNSSEC Workshop streaming live out of the ICANN 55 meeting in Marrakech, Morocco, on Wednesday, March 9, from 9:00 to 15:15 WET.

Remote participation information, slides, the agenda and other details can be found on the DNSSEC Workshop page.

The sessions will be recorded on Adobe Connect if you would like to listen to them later. Slides will be posted to the workshop page before the event begins.

Thank you to Afilias, CIRA, Dyn and SIDN for sponsoring the DNSSEC Workshop series in 2016.
