Q3 2022 Plans and Community Input

Plans
Item Activity Description
1 Auth Cluster expansion

Activity on hold until Q2 2023

We are continuously increasing the serving capacity for the AuthDNS setup by adding additional hosted nodes and replacing hardware at existing sites with more capable machines, upgrading connectivity to those sites where applicable. In 2022, we will add a fourth core site to the existing three (Amsterdam, London, Frankfurt).

The work on the expansion benefits our members and the community at large because we can respond faster to their queries and are more resilient to DoS attacks.

Due to global supply chain issues, the completion of this work is expected to be completed in 2023, later than originally planned.

We expect the work on the fourth core site to be completed by the end of 2022.

2 DNSSEC improvements (CSK + TTL for NS/DS)

Work completed in Q2 2022.

We made some small changes to our DNS services. This included the move to a Combined Signing Key (from separate Zone and Key signing keys), lowering the TTL for NS and DS records for our members’ rDNS and upgrading Zonemaster.

With this change, we can offer ease of maintenance and benefit our members as they could make changes to their DNS configurations more easily.
