IANA DNSSEC Testbed has been Decommissioned


Following advanced notice sent to this list on 2010-08-03, the IANA
testbed was shut down on 2010-09-03.

For more details on the IANA DNSSEC testbed, see <https://ns.iana.org/>.

For more details on DNSSEC deployment in the Root Zone, see

Queries to the nameserver bound to NS.IANA.ORG (,
2620:0:2d0:1::32) now fail with ICMP type 3 code 3 (Destination
Unreachable, Port Unreachable).

We suggest that anybody using the DNSSEC testbed for anything
resembling production services make plans to stop doing so at their
earliest convenience, if operational necessity has not already made
that obvious.

ICANN would once again like to thank Packet Clearing House (PCH)
and Dyn.com DynTLD for their support and generous donation of global
DNS resources to the IANA DNSSEC testbed.
