DNSSEC Key Repository Task Force
Following discussions at RIPE 54 in Tallinn, the DNS Working Group agreed to form a Task Force to discuss issues around finding a global DNSSEC trust anchor.
The DNSSEC Key Repository Task Force was set up on request of the RIPE DNS Working Group to explore the field of running a "TLD only" DNSSEC trust anchor repository at the RIPE NCC.
This includes requirements and options for both acquiring the keys from the TLD registries as well as means of publication. The Task Force shall provide for a road map including a timeline for deploying such a repository.
Whether or not it would be better to sign the DNS root zone first is out of scope for the Task Force. This is for the community to decide after the Task Force has delivered its output. A draft version of this is due at RIPE55.
