DNS, the Root, DNSSec and Operations ... living in a DNSSec enabled world

Jim Martin - Operations Manager for the Internet Systems Consortium


Jim Martin is the Operations Manager for the Internet Systems Consortium (ISC), leading the team that operates F-Root, one of the largest DNS Root Server instances. He also leads the Internet Engineering Task Force  (IETF) NOC team, building the networks that support the technical standards body for the Internet. In his role as individual contributor, Jim has co-authored several IETF standards in the areas of IPv6, IP Multicast and Time. His previous professional roles include the Lead Engineer for Interop, Research Scientist at Nortel, and IP Architect at Woven Systems.


On July 15, 2010, all 13 of the DNS root instances began providing a signed root zone and the decade long vision for DNSSec reached a major milestone. In the half year since then, as we all learned what ZSKs and KSKs were and what we REALLY needed EDNS0 for, we also gained some hard won operational knowledge. In this presentation, we'll share some of our pain so you don't have to experience it.
