DNSSEC Deployment Maps

The following maps provide a view into global DNSSEC deployment and break the deployment status of top-level domains (TLDs) out into the following six stages:

  • Experimental – Internal experimentation announced or observed
  • Announced – Public commitment to deploy
  • Partial – Zone is signed but not in operation (no DS in root)
  • DS in Root – Zone is signed and its DS has been published
  • Operational – Accepting signed delegations and DS in root
  • DS Automation – Automation of updates of DNSSEC keys

These maps are a bit different from other DNSSEC statistics sites in that they contain both factual, observed information (for the “DS in Root” and “Operational” states) and also information based on news reports, presentations, and other collected data (the first three states).  For more information about how we track the deployment status of TLDs, please read our page on the 6 Stages of DNSSEC Deployment.

The maps and associated data files track the DNSSEC status of country-code TLDs (ccTLDs). These maps are produced by the Internet Society based on a database and programs originally developed by Shinkuro, Inc.
