I'd like to thank Dean for this very positive message. His observations and those of
everyone else were all very useful and important for us to hear and we now have a much
more transparent and detailed policy as a result. It is also very positive that we
managed to work past the rocky start to this discussion to a position of mutual trust,
which I'm sure will carry into further discussions on .nz operations.
NZRS has largely kept to the shadows since its inception, but I think we all realise now
that for a function as important as ours, transparency and open discussion about our
policies are a necessity to ensure the ongoing trust of the technical community, and so
this process we've begun of opening up and asking for feedback will continue. If
anyone has any further suggestions on making this happen then we would be grateful to hear
them at any time.
With the DNSSEC policy agreed, the next stage is for us to publish our DNSSEC
implementation timetable, which are just waiting for DNCL agreement to do, as we are
approaching the final stages and we would like to give you as much notice to prepare as

Following a meeting with Dave and Sebastian from NZRS today (an offer
they extended to any party wishing to speak to them more in depth). I
am happy to report that I am satisfied with the way that NZRS is
implementing the DNSSEC signing of the .nz zone.
I have been assured that any lingering areas of concern I had before the
meeting, will be addressed either before deployment, or are on the NZRS
I'd like to thank all the NZRS staff for their hard work and patience to
make this a much more robust process and I wish them all the best with
I would also encourage them to maintain this level of community
involvement through the signing process and into production deployment.
