DNSSEC Deployment Coordination Initiative, DHS To Present Program

Focusing on deploying domain name system security extensions, "The Keys to Deploying Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC): Managing and Meeting Your OMB Domain Name System Requirements," will be presented by the DNSSEC Deployment Coordination Initiative, and supported by the Department of Homeland Security during GovSec and U.S. Law March 11-12.

The sessions will offer up-to-date advice, information, and tools to help federal IT managers navigate the deployment resources and policy issues they face in meeting key government requirements. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) directed federal agencies to deploy DNSSEC by December. These requirements will be tracked and evaluated through annual Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) reporting.

"Deploying DNSSEC is vital to protecting the dot-GOV domain, ensuring that this domain functions properly, and measuring our government’s ability to successfully defend against cyber attacks," said Don Berey, show director for GovSec, U.S. Law. "The DNSSEC Deployment Coordination Initiative has assembled an impressive agenda to educate conference attendees on these topics, including representatives from key agencies involved in multiple aspects of security, policy, and operations."

The DNSSEC Deployment Coordination Initiative program will be broken down into two sessions:

Session I: Policy and Management Issues for Deploying DNSSEC
Thursday, March 12 – 8:30-11:30 a.m.
1. DNSSEC Initiatives in the U.S. Government.
