ENISA Study on the Cost of Implementing DNSSEC - Panagiotis Saragiotis, ENISA


Deploying a new technology requires investment in software, hardware and human resources. In the case of DNSSEC the cost of these investments is not well defined and this uncertainty can hinder its deployment. This study analysed the costs involved in deploying DNSSEC in a registry, registrar, zone operator or recursive resolver operator.

The Real Cost of Implementing DNSSEC for a Registry


The DNSSEC system rely on digital signatures and must have the same attributions of the signature by hand: demonstrate authenticity, identity of the signer and integrity of the signed transaction. All rules rely on trust, and trust must be gained through clear and documented processes and by third party authentication, like a notary public is need it to authenticate the signatures of a physical contract or document. The investment need it to create the chain of trust and processes related is many times more than the investment in technology and infrastructure.
