Rough Guide To ICANN 51: DNSSEC And The Root KSK Rollover

How do we increase the security of the Domain Name System (DNS)? How can we expand the usage of DNS Security Extensions (DNSSEC) and use it to create a higher level of trust on the Internet? How do we make the Internet more secure?

Most of us probably don't think all that much about DNS but yet we use it for almost every interaction we have on the Internet. Whether we are reading the latest news, buying something online, sending email to a friend or joining into whatever the latest social network is, domain names are the tool we use to connect to sites without having to remember long numerical IP addresses. We just expect it to work and take it for granted.
