aside from just getting some cctlds signed, i will be interested in the
tools, usability, work flow, ... i.e. what is it like for a poor
innocent cctld which wants to sign their zone?
If there is sufficient interest, we could do a bar bof to describe some of
the tools IANA has...

The tools that Sparta developed (and made freely available via an open
source packaged that is BSD licensed) can be found at
http://www.dnssec-tools.org/ . In particular, signing a zone is
yup, and that's helpful stuff.
Great, we're trying to provide tools that will help with the deployment and
operation of DNSSEC. We also try to keep a listing of all the 'pieces'
that we know about that could be helpful to folks who want to deploy and
use DNSSEC in various ways whether they are operating a signed zone,
running a validating resolver or wanting DNSSEC-aware applications. The url
for the listing is:
We provide the listing as community resource and try to keep it reasonably
current. But we are always on the lookout for additional information (&
corrections) to the list - if you have any, please let me know.
All for free. Don't you hate those ??biased??, freely-available,
source-code-supplied-so-you-can-change-it, BSD-licensed open source
I like free... as long as it's the hammer I need for the nails I have.
We don't try to keep track of things in the listing by whether they or free
or not but I know a lot of them have typical open source type of licenses.
