Verisign will soon begin the transition to DNSSEC algorithm 13 (ECDSA) for the NET zone. Over the next few days, algorithm 13 signatures will start to appear in the zone, followed by the algorithm 13 DNSKEY records. We expect the DS record for the NET zone to change from algorithm 8 to algorithm 13 on or around November 8th. Additional information can be found at our blog post and DNS-OARC presentation URLs below:
We expect no operational impacts for end users, but please feel free to reach out to us with concerns or any observations of anomalous behavior related to this algorithm rollover.
