PIR’s Proposed Implementation of DNSSEC

Open: 23 April 08
Closed: 24 May 08

Explanation:On 3 April 2008, ICANN posted PIR’s proposal to implement DNS Security Extensions (DNSSEC) in .ORG for public information. ICANN has made a preliminary determination that the PIR proposal requires further consideration by the Registry Services Technical Evaluation Panel (RSTEP) because the new service could raise significant Security or Stability issues.

In order to inform the RSTEP review team and ICANN Board, ICANN is opening a comment period on PIR’s proposed implementation. All documents related to the PIR proposal are available at
