This is an argument that has repeated itself for some time now, with few arguments to back it. Perhaps those with doubts about how a signed zone might be wielded as a weapon against some party, would be interested in performing an analysis of what the possible reactions are to such an attempt and compare both the actions and their result to today's situation with an unsigned zone. Then for the extra bonus, analyse the benefits of having a signed zone when it is not being wielded as a weapon (assuming the previous analysis actually finds that possibility to be real) Joao Damas On 15/10/2008, at 18:41, Dmitry Burkov wrote: > Jim Reid wrote: > > Jim, > for me it seems - that it will raise governance issues and it is not > technical problem - but more political and legal issue. > I really worry about potential consequences of all these intentions > to deploy on the net some digital signatures based techniques (aka > DNSSEC, sidr) > It is very risky and can provocate Internet fragmentation. > We can try to improve security and stability - but in result we can > get totally different Internet - it is like as some kind of Pandora > box. > > Dmitry >> So far there has been no discussion on the list about the NTIA >> proposals about getting the root signed.
